George Talbot

George travels in both the Book of Negroes and the Birchtown Muster with his wife Susannah and presumed son James Talbot who has a different owner. (in the Birchtown Muster he is listed as being James Wilkinson which places this paternity in doubt). George claims to have ran 5 years ago but there is a clear tithable entry for Solomon Talbot for him in 1780. In the insecurity of the times many former slaves extended the period of their freedom as a way of ligitamising their condition as free. He probably ran in 1781. George is also interesting because both he and his wife have a good tithable record going right back to their teenage years.
