John Taliaferro and his children played an important part in the social, state and church life of the Colony, but owing to the destruction of the records in Caroline County, where most of the family resided, it has been impossible to obtain a complete record of the lives of his children. Because of this fact there has existed for some time a false idea as to the parents of Capt. Richard Taliaferro, who married Rose Berryman. Some historians have claimed that he was a son of Zachariah Taliaferro (b. 1683; d. 1745) ; but the Will of the first John Taliaferro, dated 1715, proved 1720 in Essex County, discloses the fact that Captain Richard Taliaferro was a son of the first John Taliaferro and his wife, Sarah (Smith) Taliaferro. The records contained in this chapter are proved by the original court records of Essex, Spotsylvania and Orange counties; the parentage of Captain Richard Taliaferro has the personal endorsement of Dr. Lyon G. Tyler, the former President of William and Mary College and Editor of the College Quarterly, and who is the present [as of the early 1920s] Editor of Tyler’s Historical and Genealogical Magazine.

The first John Taliaferro was a lieutenant commanding a company of rangers [and thus his usual reference: “John The Ranger Taliaferro”] against the Indians in 1692; Justice of Essex, 1695; Sheriff; member of House of Burgesses, 1699. He married Sarah, daughter of Major Lawrence Smith (see deed of Francis Taliaferro to brother, John, who is about to marry Sarah Smith, 1682.) He was a large land holder in Essex County and the bricks for building his beautiful home, “Powhattan,” were brought over from England. John Taliaferro died in 1720, and his Will, dated June 1, 1715, was proved in Essex County June 21, 1720. It names his wife, Sarah, and his children, Zachariah, Lawrence, John, Mary, Elizabeth, Charles, Robert, Catherine, Richard, and William.
