Item History
Colonel Thomas Talbot's first settlers arrived at Tyrconnel in 1809. These settlers were the close relatives of Leslie Patterson, an Irishman from County Fermanagh. The bicentennial celebration of their landing was held on July 11th, 2009. On July 14, 1809, 13 family members returned in a flat bottomed boat with all their earthly possessions, driving their few cattle on land bordering the water and landed on the beach of Lake Erie behind the site of St. Peter’s Anglican Church cemetery to claim their land that they had purchased from Colonel Talbot in 1808. These families had faced many hardships as they slowly traveled along the lake shore. A storm wrecked their raft, forcing the tired travelers to search for nails to repair it; despite these adversities, they persisted and made good hardy pioneers. Leslie Patterson and his wife Lydia Backus Patterson with their sons Joseph and Walter aged 2 and 1 were among the 13 settlers. This group also included Mary Patterson Storey (Leslie Patterson's sister), age 51, a widow, her adult son Walter Storey and her 2 daughters, Sarah and Anne Storey. John Pearce (originally from Rhode Island) and his wife, Frances Patterson Pearce (sister to Mary Storey and Leslie Patterson) with their children William age 4, Leslie age 2, and infant Catherine came as part of the 13 as well.

Black and white photograph used in St. Thomas Times-Journal article published June 20, 1967 with caption: "Historic Landmark - The Old St. Thomas Church on Walnut Street will be 143 years old on June 21 of this year. Of those years, all but 50 have seen the church being used. The towering steeple is well known to area residents, who still use the building for special summer worship services. The church was erected in 1824, after Captain Daniel Rapelje, one of the first settlers in this area, conveyed by deed two acres of land from his grant to the Lord Bishop of Quebec for the creation of a churchyard and the erection of a church. The graves of Captain Rapelje and his two sons are to be seen in the churchyard even today. The gothic steeple was added to the church in 1827, with the help of a monetary donation from none other than Colonel Thomas Talbot himself. Colonel Talbot was the British officer sent by the Crown to command the area around what was then a garrison of the British Empire."

Later, when a post office was established, it was called Talbotville Royal, and more recently, simply Talbotville. It is unlikely that Colonel Thomas Talbot had any local interest in this community except as agent for the Government in the placing of settlers on the land. In this the doughty old Colonel was quite successful so that the land was taken up very quickly. The story is told that as he
