Talbot County, created in 1827, grew out of Muscogee County. The county and its county seat, Talbotton, recognize Governor Matthew Talbot, a member of the convention that framed the Constitution of Georgia.

The Georgia Supreme Court called its first meeting to order in Talbotton's Clairborne Hotel on January 26, 1846.
