Note for:   Sherrington Talbot,   ABT 1575 - 1642         Index

Birth Note: Source:    Disc #126 Pin #1079957

Individual Note:
     Sherrington was John of Salwarp's only son. His first wife, Elizabeth Leighton, gave him 6 sons and 4 daughters, and it was an important part of the 1858 Peerage Case that only the youngest, also called Sherrington, had any male issue. This was Sir John Talbot of Laycock (1630-1713) who himself had no male heirs, so that line died out.

Sherrington's second wife was Mary Washbourne with whom he had 3 sons, but only the youngest, William, ever married.

Note for:   John Hussey Delaval - 1st Baron Delaval,   17 Mar 1728 - 17 May 1808         Index

Individual Note:
     Took over management of the estates on the death of his father. A good organizer and manager, he completely reorganized the estates. At Ford he brought farming practice, which had changed little in centuries, right up to date. Farm rents went up 10 times in about 30 years. With his brother Thomas, he modernized Seaton Sluice harbour and introduced glass making, improved productivity in the coal pits and introduced pumping engines etc. He made the estates profitable.

John Hussey Delaval married twice. By his first wife he had several children but unfortunately his son predeceased him. He was made a baron in 1776 and died in 1808. He left the Ford estates to his wife and granddaughter and the Delaval and Doddington estates to his surviving brother Edward.

Note for:   Francis Blake Delaval,   1692 - 9 Dec 1752         Index

Christening:   
     Date:   27 Dec 1692

Individual Note:
     Francis Blake Delaval inherited Ford Castle and estates on the death of his mother (hence the name Blake). He married Rhoda Apreece of Doddington in Lincolnshire who inherited a large estate, so Francis owned three estates. Francis was a naval Captain who had little money of his own, so although he inherited large estates his income was relatively low. Francis moved in to Delaval hall around 1726 and over the next 20 years had 8 sons and 4 daughters. As his children grew older the Delaval reputation for gay and exciting living began. Francis died in 1752 after falling down the steps of the hall.

Note for:   John Talbot,   AFT 1521 - 9 Dec 1581         Index

Birth Note: Source:    Disc #126 Pin #1079954

Individual Note:
     This John, known as John Talbot of Salwarp, married another heiress, Olive Sherrington, whose father owned Sherrington and Lacock Abbey. It was at Lacock that a collateral descendant, William Henry Fox Talbot, took the first known photographic negative in the 1830s. John and Olive's home was at Salwarp, Worcs, and she reputedly lived to be 100 years old.
NB Anne Talbot's book states that John died in 1572, but ThePeerage.com gives the date of his marriage as 1574 and of his death as 1581.
