Research needed: Conflicting birth and origin information.

Some researchers believe this English birth record refers to the Richard Talbott who emigrated to Maryland:

October 18, 1629 -- Richard Talbott was baptized at Gnosall, Staffordshire, England. [1]No source has been found in Maryland directly linking him to a birthplace in England.


According to a patent record in the collection of the Maryland Archives, Richard Talbott was in Maryland by 1659, when he was granted 260 acres; He died by 1663 leaving orphans Edward & John & relict & executrix Elizabeth, who, by 1677, married William Richardson.[2] Another patent record mentions land he was given by assignment from his father-in-law, Major Richard Ewen and that Talbott was deceased by 1674[3] In this time period, the term father-in-law could mean step-father or our modern usage of the term.

1649 -- Richard Talbott came to Maryland at the invitation of Governor Stone, settling there in the same period as Sir William Talbot and Col. George Talbot. They were all relatives of Lord Baltimore.

Richard Talbott acquired large bodies of land and eventually made his home at "Poplar Knoll," which remained in his family's possession until 1755:

1659 - Richard Talbott patents tract called Poplar Knowle in Anne Arundel County for 260 acres[4]

Richard likely began the patents process on these tracts & his son completed it:

1664 - patents tract called Talbotts Ridge in Anne Arundel County for 300 acres[5]
1664 - patents tract called Talbotts Timber Neck for 82 acres [6]

1662 -- Richard Talbott received a land grant on West River Hundred. [7]


1656 -- Richard Talbott and Elizabeth Ewen married at Anne Arundel County, Maryland.

According to his will, Richard was the father of three sons & one daughter: Richard, Edward, John and Elizabeth.


1663 -- Richard Talbott died at Poplar Knowle, Anne Arundel County, Maryland.

Sir William Talbot became secretary of the Prerogative Court in 1670. If he was a friend of the Calvert family, he was likely a Catholic. The men who settled in Anne Arundel in 1650s were Puritans and very much against the Catholic government of the colony. I doubt this relationship and a primary source should be included.

Maryland wasn't settled by the English until 1634, so it seems unlikely that Richard Talbot was born there.

The year of death (1663) is also problematic if his son Richard II was born in 1668.
