Good evening (South African time!)
I am working on what may be to many a tired old topic - who was John TALBOT (1770 London - 1853 Cape Colony), the 1820 Settler to South Africa?
Many records have him as John Stuart TALBOT, but all the 1820 Settler correspondence only list him as Jon TALBOT. Some tried to link him to the admiral John TALBOT of Lord NELSON's navy (I went to school with Lord NELSON's nearest living relative - he was flown to London in about 1983 to collect a medal or award...), but I cannot see the connection as the correspondence lists him as a shopkeeper and a coal merchant.
Another John Stuart TALBOT (1803 London - 1876 Cape Colony) is often listed as his son, although the Settler correspondence twice points out that he is the nephew. If so then who are this TALBOT's parents? And I do not buy into the idea that he is the illegitimate son of George REX. If John senior had been the admiral son of Lord TALBOT, then maybe....
