The Talton surname comes from the Gaelic Taithligh, meaning "descendant of Taithleach," a Gaelic personal name meaning "peaceable."

Talton Early Origins



The surname Talton was first found in Fermanagh (Irish: Fear Manach) in the southwestern part of Northern Ireland, Province of Ulster, where they held a family seat as eranaghs of Devenish. Irish history was greatly influenced by the Norman invasion of 1172, and thereafter, the surnames of Irish Gaelic clanns and septs and many of the Norman families became almost indistinguishable. This family name was found as Chiefs of Hy-Laoghaire, of Lough Lir, a district in the barony of Lurg Erne near Tyrone.
