    Notes 

    • (1) Wagner, Sir Anthony, and Andrus, F. S., "The Origin of the Family of Taliaferro, Family History: Virginia Genealogies #1, pre-1600 to 1900s, Genealogies of Virginia Families V, R-Z, pp. 373-374, 376, © MyFamily.com, Inc., September 2, 2006:

      SPECULATION on the origin of Robert Talafero or Tolliver who settled in Virginia by 1647 has ranged from Scotland where the forms Taillefer, Talfer, Telfer, and others are found from the thirteenth century onwards, through England where the forms include Tolver and Tulliver, through France to Italy where Taliaferra and Taliaferro are not uncommon. This meant that the surname in itself, being so widespread was of little use as a clue, and it was, therefore, with relief and gratitude for our good fortune that we found in the London area, the likeliest immediate place of origin for an early Virginia settler, references to members of a family of the name which appeared to fit the Virginia data perfectly.

      From these, as will be seen, the conclusion has now been reached that Robert the settler was the grandson of Bartholomew Taliaferro, a subject of the Duke of Venice, who settled in London and was made denizen in March 1562.

      Important points in favour of the identification were that this particular family of Taliaferro was the only one found mentioned in the probate records of the Prerogative Court of Canterbury and of London, and that after 1647 the name entirely disappeared from these probate records. Furthermore, letters of administration of the estate of Francis Talafero were granted on the 20th of August 1647 to his daughter Anne, not to his son Robert, as we might have expected had he been in England at the time. Robert was then aged twenty years and nine months.

      Finally, the emigrant called one of his sons Francis.

      It now remains to see if light can be thrown on the Italian origin and ancestry of Bartholomew and to this end further research is now proceeding. . . .
