John Ivory Talbot

on Tuesday, 24 March 2015. Posted in Talbot

John Ivory (later John Ivory Talbot) was the eldest son of Anne Talbot and Sir John Ivory of Wexford. Because his grandfather Sir John Talbot did not have any surviving sons from either of his marriages, John inherited his estates through his mother. He assumed the name Talbot as a condition of his inheritance.

He married Mary Mansel, daughter of Sir Thomas Mansel of Margam, in 1716. They had four children: John Talbot the younger, who inherited Lacock; Thomas, who inherited Margam and Penrice through the will of his uncle Christopher Mansel; Martha, who married William Davenport, her cousin (the son of her aunt Barbara Ivory, who married Henry Davenport); and Ann, who died aged 29.

The Inheritance of John Ivory

on Sunday, 12 February 2017. Posted in Talbot

John Ivory inherited the Manor of Lacock in 1714 on the death of his grandfather, Sir John Talbot. Sir John had had a son, Sharington, who had predeceased him and hence the inheritance passed to his eldest male grandson. The conditions of the bequest, as specified in the last will of Sir John (1), dated 1 August 1712, included an absolute requirement that the inheritor must adopt the name and arms of Sir John, and hence John Ivory became John Ivory Talbot. Sir John also made clear his intention to reach from beyond his grave as he also identified the line of succession should John Ivory die without “issue male”, identifying his other three grandsons as the next in line in birth order. The will also required “keeping the premisses in good repaire & not permitting any wast therein”.
