Talboys History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Talboys is one of the names that was brought to England in the wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Talboys family lived in Lincolnshire. Their name, however, is a reference to Taillebois, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. Alternatively, the name may be derived from the Old French "taillebosc," meaning "cut wood"; in this case, the name would refer to a wood-cutter. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
