Locality

Henry Talbot hailed from the Butleigh - Street - Somerton area of Somerset England, and was transported to Sydney Australia in 1829, leaving his family behind. After serving his sentence, Henry married again and spent the rest of his years in the Newtown area in Sydney's inner south western suburbs (though an outer area in 1830).

Early Generations

William Talbott (c1640?…1715) m. — — (…)
[Butleigh, Somerset]

Details regarding the early generations of this Talbot lineage at Butleigh were constructed from Robert Senior's impressive work-in-progress Butleigh Ancestry, Genealogy and Family History WebSite, www.butleigh.org [accessed jan2012].

William Talbot (talbot_21), guess born circa 1640, buried 25 May 1715 at Butleigh, is attributed paternity of:

Robert Senior's Butleigh WebSite (Talbot 21) [accessed feb2014] noted:
Probably the William who donated money to the building of St. Pauls in 1680. A John Talbott killed a polecat and 5 hedgehogs in 1695 according to the churchwardens accounts. A William is listed as 'at Hill' on the 1672 commoners list. He paid the rates from 1678 in succession to John Talbott jun.

The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) describes Butleigh:
"BUTLEIGH, a parish in the hundred of Whitley, in the county of Somerset, 4 miles to the S.E. of Glastonbury, its post town, which is also a station on the Somerset Central railway. The parish includes the hamlet of Butleigh-Wootton. Blue has is abundant in the neighbourhood. The living is a vicarage* in the diocese of Bath and Wells, value with the perpetual curacy of Baltonsborough annexed, £380, in the patronage of the Hon. R. N. Grenville. The church is dedicated to St. Leonard, and contains a monument to the Hood family, who hold the manor of Wootton. Butleigh House is the principal residence."

Edward Talbot (talbot_21a1A), a son of EDWARD and ELIZABETH TALBOTT, married Elinor Close at Baltonsborough on 10 February 1766: she was apparently baptised Hellen on 2 February 1735 at St Dunstan's parish church, Baltonsborough, Somerset, the daughter of GEORGE and SUSAN CLOSE of Baltonsborough.

Edward and Elinor were the parents of:

Elinor was buried on 25 August 1790 at Butleigh; Edward Talbot, 'aged 74', was buried on 11 June 1813 at Butleigh.

Robert Senior's Butleigh WebSite (Talbot 21a1A) [accessed feb2014] noted:
For Eleanor see (32) below. 1774 - National Archives, Butleigh Court Papers - Edward Talbot's warrant as Hundred Bailiff. He exchanged land in Southmoor with James Grenville, 1782 and 1797. Son Edward married Elizabeth Nicols on 5 Nov 1793 in West Pennard and they had seven children there. Bondsman for the marriage licence of 1766 was Gabriel Close of Baltonsborough.
In Jan 1788 the OOP paid for 'two days work for a man and plough for hauling Edward Talbots household goods and Richard Rendell – to the poor house [which needed a new lock and key]. In March 1788 the OOP sheaves of reeds for the Poor House where Edward Talbott was living, at Butleigh. In Sep 1789 William Helliar made clothing for Edward's children – paid for by the OOP.

[Butleigh and Street, Somerset]

This section partly based on Robert Senior's Butleigh WebSite (Talbot 21b1Ai) [accessed feb2014].

Details regarding this Talbot lineage to this point were from Robert Senior's Butleigh WebSite <http://www.butleigh.org/> [accessed 23jan2014]; Elizabeth Nutt's birth details, and the details regarding her daughter Mary, likewise.
Other details of this Talbot lineage below, to the transportation of Henry Talbot to New South Wales in 1829, are based principally on a plausible interpretation advanced by Alan Steer of Southampton in December 1998 on research including (examination of the Street Parish Register) freely contributed by himself [pers comm 28 Oct 1998] and by George Steer of Wedmore Somerset <http://www.somerset.gov.uk/wedmore/> [Oct 1998], augmented by this author who remains indebted to Alan and George. Michael Vickery, Pat Fleming and Liz Newby also assisted.


John Talbot (talbot_21b1Ai), baptised 7 July 1771 at Street, son of JOHN TALBOTT and ELIZABETH POLLET, bachelor of the parish of Street in Somerset, England, and Elizabeth Nutt (?or Parr?), spinster of the same parish, were married in their parish church on 1 April 1793 by the rector J Thomas; John signed and Elizabeth made her mark in the register. Elizabeth had been born about 1774 at Compton Dundon.

Four children of John and Elizabeth were baptised at Street that decade:

The death of John Talbott at Street was registered I the Wells district in 2Q1843. The death of Elizabeth Talbott née Nutt was registered in the Wells district in 1Q1853.


Also baptised in Street for John and Betty Talbot was Isick Talbot, on 8 May 1785 [apopor], and for John and Elizabeth Talbot was Isick Talbot, on 14 May 1788 [apopor / a pauper??].

The burial of a John Talbot aged 78 took place at Street on 11 September 1823 and implies he was born circa 1744; the burial of an Elizabeth Talbot aged 84 took place at Street on 22 January 1828 and implies she was born circa 1743; if they were the couple married in 1893 they would then have been about fifty years old. Street is situated 3km south of Glastonbury, 27km east-northeast from Taunton and 21km north-northwest from Yeovil.

Other Talbot baptisms in Street include:
     Robert Talbot (son of Thos. and Ann, 16 December 1801[against this in the register is annotated “died May 7 1765” - perhaps 1865])
     Fanny Talbot (daughter of Wm. and Ann, June 13 1802
     Silas Talbot (son of William and Ann, ?5 Feby 1804).

John Talbot (talbot_21b1Aia1), baptised 2 July 1820 at Street, Somerset, the son of MARY TALBOT by JOHN SEALY, seems to have married Charlotte Squire at Street on 22 September 1840. Charlotte had been born circa 1822 at Pitney. Labourer John Talbot and his wife Charlotte, residents of Street, were the parents of:

Robert Senior's Butleigh WebSite (Talbot 21b1Aia1) [accessed feb2014] noted:
John and Charlotte first appear on the censuses in 1841 living in Street with no children and John listed as a mason. Next door lived John (also a mason) and Betty Talbott, his grand-parents. In 1851 John and Charlotte lived at Bowling Green, Street [with John's widowed grandmother two doors down and listed as 'Pauper'?]. John was then an agricultural labourer and Charlotte a glover.
In 1861 Charlotte lived alone with the children while her husband was working away as a mason on the railway at Bruton, where he lodged.
In 1871 the couple lived at Street Mead with Eliza, John, Frank Willie and grandchild Lille Holloway. In 1881 lived with son John, his wife Eliza and son Willie. Frank Talbot and his wife Clara lodged next door with the Camp family. In 1891 John and Charlotte lived in Street High Street in four rooms, with just son Willie.


John Talbot, stone mason, died at Street in 1905.

Details regarding this Talbot lineage prior to the transportation of Henry Talbot to New South Wales in 1829 are based principally on a plausible interpretation advanced by Alan Steer of Southampton in December 1998 on research (including examination of the Street Parish Register) freely contributed by himself [pers comm 28 Oct 1998] and by George Steer of Wedmore Somerset <http://www.somerset.gov.uk/wedmore/> [Oct 1998], augmented by this author who remains indebted to Alan and George.

Henry Talbot, apparently baptised at Street in April 1798, the son of JOHN TALBOT (talbot_21b1Ai) and his wife ELIZABETH PARR or NUTT, married Charity Redick at Stre
et on 24 June 1818.They were the parents of:

Henry was convicted of a felony at the Taunton Assizes on 27 March 1819 [possibly his second conviction as the first would probably have been dealt with by a local magistrate in Petty Sessions] and apparently sentence to 7 years imprisonment.

Charity Talbot died age 32 years, soon after the baptism of her son George: she was buried at Holy Trinity, Street, on 15 November 1826.

Widower Henry Talbot subsequently married spinster Frances Pollett at Street in November 1827, witnessed by Sarah Talbot (presumably Henry’s sister). Frances appears to have been baptised at Street on 5 April 1807, the daughter of JOHN and MARY POLLETT. One child of Henry and Frances was baptised at Street:

Henry, Frances and Sarah Talbot of Street appear a “thoroughly bad lot” and Henry, a stonemason aged 30 years (born circa 1799) from Street, Somerset, was jailed at Ilchester Prison on 27 May 1829 to await trial at the next Quarter Sessions together with Frances Talbot aged 22 (born circa 1807) and Sarah Talbot aged 25 (born circa 1804). The Taunton Chronicle of Wednesday 15 July 1829 (p.6) noted among the 93 prisoners listed to appear before the Midsummer Quarter Sessions commencing at Bridgwater on 13 July “ — Henry Talbot, Frances Talbot, and Sarah Talbot, stealing a truss of cloth from the wagon of Wm. Edwards — ”. The following Wednesday the weekly listed the sentences: Henry Talbot — transportation, to serve fourteen years [which, though the term was almost always shortened, was in essence a one-way passage to the colonies]; Sarah Talbot — imprisonment for ten months; Francis [sic] Talbot — discharged. The Bridgwater Assize records shew that Sarah Talbott, aged 24 years, had been convicted of simple larceny and sentenced to 10 months hard labour. [Another Henry Talbot (born circa 1773, from Somerton [last abode], about 7km south of Street) had “had his collar felt” in 1823 - perhaps this was even the father of Henry born 1799 whose Australian death certificate stated, though probably erroneously, that he was the son of a Henry.]

Henry was despatched from London on 24 August 1829 aboard the convict transport Claudine, bound for New South Wales. After his departure, Frances appears to have had four further children:

The 1861 census shews Street-born Edwin Talbott, 19, at Wootton, Hampshire, a private soldier in the militia at 30th Depot under at Btn. Major Charles M Green.

Henry Talbot arrived in Sydney Cove 6 December 1829 as a convict aboard the Claudine. Henry was then described as 30 years old, with no education, a married Protestant with a family of two. A stonemason, he hailed from Somerset, and had been sentenced to 14 years imprisonment at Somerset Assizes in Bridgwater on 13 July 1829. He received a Ticket of Leave at the close of 1831, allowing him to live a fairly normal life in the young colony at Sydney, and never returned to the Old Dart. Henry Talbott, 35 and on a bond, married 23-year-old Martha Lynch in Sydney on 14 May 1834 in S Philip's Church Sydney [transportees were regarded as starting a new life in the colony] and in a respectable career as stonemason raised six or seven children in NSW. Being a convict on bond Henry had to lodge an Application to Marry, on which was noted that Henry “On arrival [in the colony] stated he was married and had two children” while Martha was “Stated Single”. Martha had arrived (free) in Sydney from Ireland on 10 August 1832 aboard the Red Rover, a noted female emigrant ship which had departed Cork on 10 April with merchandise and 202 young ladies, aged 16-24, bound for the colonies. Martha appears in the logs as Martha Searjeant, house servant aged 23, who upon arrival in Sydney found employment with a Mrs Davis of Sydney for a yearly wage of £8.

Marriage details written on Henry's 1875 death certificate note his bride as Martha Sergeant. An Application to Marry was lodged on 24 January 1833 by 18-year old ex-convict Fredk Holmes and a Martha Sergeant: the NSW BDM indexes indicate Frederick Holmes and Martha Sargant married at Sydney's St Mary's Roman Catholic Chapel [now Cathedral] in 1833. Frederick had been transported to Australian in the Royal George arriving in Sydney on 22 August 1828, having been sentenced to seven years in 'York (Leeds Borough Quarter Sessions)' on 12 January 1924: his status in 1833 was 'Free'. The Application index notes that Martha 'Came free' to Australia. Surviving official records do not indicate the fate of Frederick Holmes, and no record has yet been found for a Serjeant-Lynch, Holmes-Lynch or Martha*-Lynch marriage, nor for a Serjeant-Talbot or Holmes-Talbot marriage. Henry's Martha would have been about 22 at the start of 1833 and not yet five months in Australia: fifteen months later she began her enduring marriage to Henry. It is quite possible she had married Frederick Holmes and had a dalliance with — Lynch. It is also possible that Lynch was an alias for Sergeant (perhaps Martha's mother's maiden name) or for Holmes.

Henry and Martha had six known children (though both Henry's and Martha's death certificates mention that they were pre-deceased by one son and one daughter, and survived by one son and two daughters). The children were:

Martha Talbot, née Sergeant, died at Newtown aged 60 years on 19 January 1870; Henry Talbott, monumental mason aged 75 years of the Parish of St Stephens, died in Newtown on 22 July 1875. His death certificate gave Henry's father as HENRY TALBOTT stone mason [possibly an error], mother unknown.

1.2.1.1.1.3.1 George Talbott (1833…1833)

George Talbott was born 1833, the first of six children of HENRY TALBOTT by his third wife MARTHA LYNCH née SERGEANT; he died in infancy on the 4 October 1833, aged just 14 days.

1.2.1.1.1.3.2 John Talbott (1835…1866) m. Mary Henery ( …1893?)

John Talbott was born 1835, the second of six children of HENRY TALBOTT by his third wife MARTHA LYNCH née SERGEANT. John married Mary Henery on 21 August 1855 at S Philip's, Sydney. John and Mary's children included:

Though no birth is evident in the NSW Indexes for Mary Henery, it is possible that she was the child of Joseph Henery and Mary Ann Jenkins, who had married in 1834.

John Talbot, a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, died on 2 May 1866 at his residence, Mechanic-street, Newtown, aged 32 years, and was buried at Camperdown.

[A John Talbott, ship steward of 59 Windmill Street, Sydney, married Mary Ann Hughes in 1866, and it is thought that Mary Margaret Talbot was born to this couple on 10 June 1867.]

Unsurprisingly, as a widow with three infants following John's death, Mary soon married again, in 1866, to James Alexander Turnbull, by whom she bore a further seven children. The death of a Mary Turnbull, daughter of JOHN and MARY, was registered at Newtown in 1893: this was probably the event noted in The Sydney Morning Herald, Monday 30 January 1893 (p8): “THE FRIENDS of J. A. TURNBULL are respectfully invited to attend the Funeral of his beloved WIFE, Mary. TO-MORROW, at Bishopgate-street, Newtown, at 2 o'clock.”

[A John Talbott, ship steward of 59 Windmill Street, Sydney, married Mary Ann Hughes in 1866, and it is thought that Mary Margaret Talbot was born to this couple on 10 June 1867, and baptised by Revd Edward Rogers at Holy Trinity Church of England on 21 July.]

The birth of John Henry Talbot, son of JOHN TALBOTT and MARY HENERY, was registered at St George in Sydney in 1862. John married Eva Ruth Murray on 13 March 1886, The Sydney Morning Herald on Monday 29 March 1886 (p1) noting: “TALBOT-MURRAY.—March 13, at the residence of the bride's parents, by the Rev. A. W. Murray, grandfather of the bride, John Henry Talbot, only son of the late John Talbot, sculptor, of Newtown, to Eva Ruth, eldest daughter of W. A. Murray, Enmore-road, Marrickville.” Eva's birth had been registered to WILLIAM A and EDITH S in Sydney in 1866.

John and Eva had three known issue:

Albion's birth had been registered to ALFRED and JANE HANSFORD in the Manning River district of NSW in 1865. Albion and Jane were parents of:

The death of Jane Hansford née Talbot was registered at Newtown in 1888, Sydney's Evening News of Friday 4 January 1889 (p4) noting: “HANSFORD.— In loving memory of my dear sister, Mrs. Jane Hansford, who died at her parents' residence, Kogarah, January 4, 1888. Inserted by her affectionate brother, John Henry Talbot.”; The Sydney Morning Herald on Friday 6 January 1888 (p1) noted: HANSFORD.—January 4, 1838, at her parent's residence, J. A. Turnball, Kogarah, the dearly-beloved wife of A. Hansford.” and (p10) “THE FRIENDS of Mrs. HANSFORD are respectfully invited to attend her Funeral ; to move from her parents' residence, J. A.

The death of Albion Hansford was registered at Gosford in 1941 [his mother noted as JULIA].]

1.2.1.1.1.3.3  Henry Talbott (1837…1888) m. Maria Kirkham (1843…1881)

Henry Talbot was born in Sydney in 1837, the third of six children of HENRY TALBOTT by his third wife MARTHA LYNCH née SERGEANT. Henry married Maria Kirkham on 7 October 1864 in Newtown. Maria bore Henry seven children:

Maria Talbott née Kirkham died on 28 October 1881 at Chippendale NSW; Henry Talbott died 1 April 1888 at Prince Henry Hospital in Sydney. (It appears that this was Maria’s husband.) For further details regarding Maria Kirkham's family, refer to the Kirkham lineage.

1.2.1.1.1.3.3.1  Helen Talbott (1873…1931) m. John Robertson Taylor (1873…1920)

Helen Talbott, born in Sydney in 1873, daughter of HENRY TALBOTT and his wife MARIA KIRKHAM, was aged 25 when she married John Robertson Taylor, also aged 25, on 31 December 1898 at St Alban's Church of England, Golden Grove, Redfern NSW. John Taylor was born at Newtown NSW in 1873, to labourer EDWARD SCOLLY TAYLOR and his wife HANORA [“ANNIE”] LENEHAN [their marriage registered in Sydney in 1867].

Edward Scolly Taylor, a ganger with the NSW Railways and a whaler in Great Southern Ocean, had been born 22 October 1835 at Walls, Orkney, Scotland, lived at ‘Old Hall’, Longhope, Walls (1841-1851 census); he died 24 January 1913 at home 6th Ave, Rookwood, Sydney, NSW. Edward had married on 11 Feburary 1867 in Sydney, to Honora (Annie) Lenihan. Annie, born 1846 Thurles, Co. Tipperary, Ireland, the daughter of WILLIAM LENIHAN and MARY PEARCE, died 2 July 1916 at her home, ‘Aurora’, 6th Avenue, Lidcombe.

John’s siblings included Heling Taylor (born 6 January 1869 Newtown, died before 22 March 1870), William Taylor (born 22 March 1870 Baltic St, Kingstown (Newtown), died between 31 August 1875 and 24 August 1879), Edward Scolly Chambers Taylor (born 27 December 1871 Kingstown, seen alive 1920 in Manly, Sydney) and Benjamin James Taylor (birth registered at Newtown in 1879; see below).

Helen and John Taylor had five children:

Information from Roz Chapman (January 2002) indicates that John Robertson Taylor, son of EDWARD S and HANORA, died 11 December 1920 at Kerrs Rd, Lidcombe NSW and was buried at Rookwood Cemetery, Sydney. Cemetery records show his age as 47. [Information from Dr Donald Kirkham (May 1992) had indicated that labourer John Robertson Taylor, of Oswald Street, Campsie NSW, died in March 1924 at the Coast Hospital, Little Bay, and was interred in the CoE cemetery at Woronora NSW: this would appear to be the John R Taylor, son of JOHN and MARY, whose death was registered at Redfern in 1924 – ed.].

Roz Chapman notes that Helen Taylor née Talbott died in February 1931 at Auburn, Sydney, NSW, and was intered with her husband. Apparently Helen introduced tuberculosis to the Taylor family resulting in several deaths.

The death of Benjamin James Taylor, brother of John Robertson Taylor and son of EDWARD SCOLLY [TAYLOR] and ANNE, on 7 July 1965, 'late of Manly', was registered at St Leonards in 1965 and noted in The Sydney Morning Herald on 9 July 1965
The 1933 Electoral Roll shews Benjamin [wool-buyer] and Isabella Lydia [home duties] at 28 Reddall street, Manly, while the 1943, 1949 and 1954 Electoral Rolls shew Benjamin [antique dealer] and Isabella at 20 Reddall street, Manly [the death of Isabella Lydia Taylor, daughter of WILLIAM and JANE, on 9 August 1965, 'late of Manly', was registered at St Leonards in 1965 and noted in The Sydney Morning Herald next day]. Heather Laycock of Korora [2km north of Coffs Harbour] is a descendant of Benjamin James Taylor, brother of John Robertson Taylor (pers comm. 04Jan2011).

[***per Roz Chapman, supported in 2012 by Donand Kirkham. Michael Vickery (2009) had John married Thelma Jean Kelsey at Taree NSW in 1936]; Donald Kirkham once also had this earlier”]..

John Edward Taylor; son of JOHN and HELEN, died 6 July 1937 at Randwick.

The death on 20 August 1948 of Grace Isabel Taylor, daughter of HAROLD and HARRIETT JANE, was registered at Auburn.

Kerry Reynolds, daughter-in-law of Jill Margaret Reynolds née Taylor [per eMail,  March 2012], noted that after Grace's death …
“…Jill was sent to live with a family who were not relatives … As a result Jill lost contact with all siblings except for Keith. I have been unable to locate any information on Joyce or Gordon, I cannot find any death certificates up till 1981 so I am wondering if there is a remote possibility that they are alive or they have family that might be able to share information on what happened after Grace’s death. We would be interested in any information.”
