Edward Talbot, 8th Earl of Shrewsbury

Edward Talbot, 8th Earl of Shrewsbury and Waterford (February 25, 1561February 8, 1617), was the younger brother and nearest male heir of Gilbert Talbot, 7th Earl of Shrewsbury, whom he succeeded as Earl of Shrewsbury and Lord High Steward of Ireland in 1616.

He was born in Sheffield, and in 1583 he married Jane Ogle, Baroness Ogle, the daughter of Cuthbert Ogle, 7th Baron Ogle. None of their children survived him, and he was succeeded by his nearest male relative, George Talbot of Grafton. However, some of the extensive family estates passed to the daughters of his elder brother and predecessor and devolved on ultimately on the Dukes of Norfolk.
