From The Times, April 23, 1925

By a sad coincidence, Lady Frederick's elder sister, the Hon. Mrs.
J.G. Talbot, also died last night. She was the Hon. Meriel Sarah
Lyttelton, the eldest daughter of the fourth Lord Lyttelton, and was
born in 1840. She was married, in July, 1860, to the Right Hon. John
Gilbert Talbot, son of the Hon. John Chetwynd-Talbot, Q.C.,
Attorney-General to the Prince of Wales (King Edward VII.), and
grandson of the second Earl Talbot. Mr. J. G. Talbot represented West
Kent for ten years, and the University of Oxford for 32 years, till
his death in 1910. He was a strong Churchman and Conservative, and
his sound sense and judgment made him greatly respected both in the
House and in the country. Mrs. Talbot leaves three sons - Mr. Justice
Talbot, Mr. Bertram Talbot, formerly Clerk in the House of Commons,
and Mr. J. E. Talbot, of the Board of Education; and five daughters -
Mrs. Talbot Baines, Dame Meriel Talbot, who is well-known for her
social work, especially in overseas settlements, Miss Evelyn Talbot,
Lady Stephenson, wife of Sir Guy Stephenson, and the Countess of
Antrim. Mrs Talbot's eldest daughter, the wife of Dr. W.O. Burrows,
