WILLIAM HENRY FOX TALBOT (1800–1877)
One only has to examine the will of Lord William Talbot to establish that Mary Ann was relating the truth when declaring she was his daughter. Names that appear in the will dated 1779 correspond with names mentioned by surname in her story. Charles William Dyer was a signatory and John Sucker was a beneficiary and co-executor. "My very dear daughter Miss Fanny Talbot" is also mentioned in the will, when according to the Talbot pedigree William had only one daughter by his marriage to Mary de Cardonnel. This of course maybe true in that she was his only legitimate child, but he had other children by various mistress's. I have been researching the 'Mary Ann Talbot' story for many years and believe I have located her maternal lineage, coincidentally named Talbot with no apparent link with the aristocratic line. It is my considered opinion that Mary Ann obtained her surname from her mother and not as one may suppose from her father. Sincerely Yours, Derek Garforth.
