Description Story Links

The Rebellion of 1837 divides the Talbot settlement. Those who supported the crown and the aristocratic ways of Thomas Talbot, and those with "reform inclinations." While Talbot had no love for the provincial government, the "Family Compact", he saw any act of reform as a transgression against his beloved Crown and used any means possible to stop it.

While the rebellion didn't have a large immediate impact upon the Talbot settlement, the reforms put in place following the rebellion lead to Talbot loosing his settlement powers.
