In this talk, we will find out how Thomas Talbot used his Anglo-Irish nobility and military connections to secure the land along the north shore of Lake Erie to distribute as he saw fit to early settlers in Upper Canada.

Were his methods fair, popular, or effective? Join us as we travel through the early 1800s in the development of the settlement. What is the legacy left by Talbot and his settlers on the region?

This will be a live stream on our YouTube channel.
