Description Story Links

The eccentric Thomas Talbot was known for his love of alcohol, for his dislike of "Cold Water Drinking Societies," and for organizing gangs of men to intimidate people with "reform inclinations."

He often quarreled with the provincial government of Upper Canada, but if the results were not to his liking, he would use his influence with the British Crown archive his goals. In this way he was able to amass thousands of acres of land for himself and his servants.
