Talbot was born at Worcester, the son of Charles Talbot, later Baron Talbot. He was educated at Eton from 1725 to 1728 and matriculated at Exeter College, Oxford on 23 January 1727. He was created DCL (Doctor of Civil Law) on 12 June 1736. He was Member of Parliament for Glamorganshire from 1734 to 1737, when he succeeded his father in the barony and entered the House of Lords. He was Lord High Steward at King George III's coronation, and became a member of the Privy Council in 1761. He served from then until his death as Lord Steward of the Household. He was created Earl Talbot on 29 March 1761.

Talbot died 27 April 1782 at Lincolns Inn Fields and was buried at Sutton.

Talbot had no sons so when he was created Baron Dynevor of Dynevor in the county of Carmarthen on 17 October 1780, it was with a special remainder in favour of his only child, a daughter, and the heirs male of her body.

Talbot had married Mary, daughter and heir of Adam de Cardonnel, secretary to the Duke of Marlborough, on 21 February 1733, at St George, Hanover Square.

He had an affair with Frances Somerset, Duchess of Beaufort (born 14 August 1711 – died 16 February 1750), wife of Henry Scudamore-Somerset, 3rd Duke of Beaufort which led to the Beauforts' divorce in 1743.

Mary Anne Talbot claimed to be one of sixteen illegitimate children of Lord Talbot.[1]

At his death, the earldom became extinct, whilst the barony of Talbot passed to his nephew (and is now part of the earldom of Shrewsbury), and the barony of Dynevor to his daughter and thereafter to her eldest son. She had married George Griffiths and had two sons, the eldest of which was George Griffiths, 3rd Baron Dynevor.
