The ancient origin of the name Talbot was found in the irishsurnames.com archives. Talbot is a baptismal name meaning 'messenger of destruction'. Variants of the name include Talbott, Talbut and Taulbut. This name is of Anglo-Norman descent spreading to Ireland, Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts in the above countries. Examples of such are a Ricardus Talebot who was recorded in the 'Pipe Rolls' in the year 1883, and a Richard Talebot who was recorded in the Domesday book, in the fourteenth century. In Ireland this is the name of an ancient family of Norman origin who have held the Earldoms of Shrewsbury and Waterford, since the fifteenth century. They have held the same estate at Malahide in County Dublin in unbroken male descent from the time of the Anglo-Norman invasion in 1170 to the present time. They trace their descent from Richard de Talbot who is mentioned in the Domesday book. His son, Hugh, was govenor of Plessis Castle, Normandy, in 1118. In Gaelic Talbot is rendered as 'Talbóid'.The Talbot family crest (or coat of arms) came into existence many centuries ago. The process of creating these coats of arms began as early as the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this, including Ireland. The new more formalized art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own family crest, coat of arms, including Talbot descendants.
