Richard [III] Talbot
RICHARD [III] Talbot (-after ). Henry II King of England granted "manerium de Lintona…terram de Cottona" to "Ricardo Talebot" by charter dated to [1156/58]. The 1155 Pipe Roll records "Hugo de Longo campo et Ric Talebot in Lintun et Wintun" in Herefordshire. Richard's family connection with Hugh de Longchamp, suggested by this entry, has not been ascertained. Thomas Stapleton, in his "Observations on the Great Rolls of the Exchequer of Normandy" on the roll dated 1198, states that "the families of Longchamp and Lacy had, it seems, intermarried". If that is correct, it is likely that Richard [III] Talbot was closely related to Geoffrey [II] Talbot, whose mother may have been Agnes [de Lacy], maybe his son. The Red Book of the Exchequer refers to "Ricardo Talebot iv m" in Hereford in [1158/59]. Military fee certifications in the Red Book of the Exchequer, in 1166, record that "Ricardi de Candos" granted one half of one knight's fee to "Ricardo Tallebaut" in Herefordshire. The Red Book of the Exchequer records enfeoffments in the duchy of Normandy in , "Ricardus Talebot" with one knight "in baillia Galfridi de Bleville, de Caleto". The Testa de Nevill includes a writ of King John dated 1212 which records that "Ricardus Talebot" previously held "feudum i militis apud Linton" in Herefordshire, granted by King Henry II, which was now held by "Gilbertus filius eius". Michael Tutty records that Richard Talbot went to Ireland as part of the first Anglo-Norman invasion and "was granted the lordship of Malahide by Henry II King of England about 1174", but does not cite the primary source on which this information is based.
