Scope and Content
Black and white photograph showing the house and property once owned by the Rolph family on Talbot Road, Southwold Township (now 39545 Fingal Line). The house was probably built ca. 1850. It is a matter of dispute whether Dr. John Rolph lived here, but Dr. Thomas Rolph (d. 1815) lived here and is buried on the property. An historic plaque has been erected at the entrance to the property, which reads: "The Honourable John Rolph M.D. 1793-1870: This property once belonged to John Rolph, a prominent physician, lawyer and legislator. Born in England, he emigrated to Upper Canada in 1812. In 1824, with Dr. Charles Duncombe, he established at St. Thomas, the province's first medical school, the "Talbot Dispensatory". A reformer, Rolph represented Middlesex in the assembly, 1824-29 and Norfolk 1836-37. Although not an active participant in the Rebellion of 1837, he was so seriously implicated that he was compelled to flee to the United States. He returned in 1843, established a noted medical school in Toronto, and became the founder of the radical Clear Grit party 1849-50 and president of the legislative council, 1855-57." It is also a matter of dispute whether Rolph and Duncombe's proposed medical school in St. Thomas, Ontario, the "Talbot Dispensatory" was ever established or operated. File includes:
