The Earl of Shrewsbury in 1935

John George Chetwynd-Talbot, 21st Earl of Shrewsbury (21 January 1914 – 12 November 1980), styled Viscount Ingestre from 1915 to 1921, was a British peer. He was the son of Charles John Alton Chetwynd-Talbot, Viscount Ingestre (1882–1915) and Lady Winifred Constance Hester Paget, sister of the Marquess of Anglesey. He inherited the title Earl of Shrewsbury when his grandfather Charles Chetwynd-Talbot, 20th Earl of Shrewsbury died in 1921.

He married his first wife, Nadine Muriel Crofton (1913-2003), in 1936.[1][2] He sued for divorce in 1958, but in 1959 judge Charles A. Collingwood rejected the divorce suit.[3][4] In a subsequent proceeding, a divorce was granted.[1]

Lord Shrewsbury's second wife was Nina Mortlock.[1] His son Charles[5] succeeded to Lord Shrewsbury's titles on his death.
