John Talbot
Virginian
Member of the House of Burgesses
1765-1776

The monument pictured below stands in the courtyard of the Colonial Capitol Building in Williamsburg, Virginia.  Here and across the street at the Raleigh Tavern, Members of the House of Burgesses adopted resolves condemning the actions of the British toward their North American colonies.  These actions, famous in our history, paved the way for the Declaration of Independence in 1776.
 

Members of the House of Burgesses who, at the Raleigh Tavern May 18, 1769 and
May 27, 1774 and August 1774, entered into associations against the importation
or purchase of British manufactures.

John Talbot's name appears in the right column.  His is the 12th name from the top and just left of the anchor bolt.
