He [Richard Talbot] married, before 23 August 1381 Ankaret, suo jure, according to modern doctrine, BARONESS STRANGE (of Blackmere), only daughter (who on 23 August 1383 became sole heir) of John (LESTRANGE), IV LORD STRANGE (of Blackmere), by Mary, daughter of Richard (FITZALAN), EARL OF ARUNDEL. He died 8 or 9 September 1396 in London, aged about 35. His widow, who was aged 22 in 1383, married, as his 2nd wife, between 8 March and 4 July 1401, Thomas (NEVILLE), LORD FURNIVALLE, who died s.p.m., 14 March 1406/7. She died 1 June 1413, aged about 52. [Complete Peerage XII/1:616-17, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

Note: Ankaret's mother, Mary, was the daughter of Edmund, the 9th earl of Arundel, not Richard, the 10th earl (see Arundel, vol.1, p.244, note b). [Some Correction and Additions to the Complete Peerage]
