Some of this family did not survive the trek and were either shot or taken as POWs and never heard from again. Most members of this family migrated to Australia after World War II.

I am trying to connect my paternal genealogy to the Talbots who held the earldom of Shrewsbury. My grandmother told me one of my ancestors was John Talbot, the younger son of one of the earls, but she didn't know which. I've always had difficulty tracing the Talbot side of my genealogy.
