BOOK - Whence They Came: Irish Origins From pre 1900 New Brunswick Death Notices
By: Peter Murphy
Published by Global Heritage Press, MIlton, 2010
More than 250, 000 Irish immigrants passed through the ports of New Brunswick during the half century from the close of the Napoleonic Wars to Canadian Confederation in 1867. Today their descendants-numbering in the millions-are to be found in places as far flung as Alaska and Australia, along the banks of the St. John and the Miramichi, the Charles and the Potomoc, in the shadow of Toronto's CN Tower, and in every corner of the globe. Interest in their history grows-it seems-in proportion to the number of their descendants. Where, these descendants ask, did we come from? Simply put, this work is designed to offer the most reliable response to this most asked question! Gathered together here are nearly three thousand death notices, transcribed verbatim from pre-1900 New Brunswick newspapers, each of which identifies a specific place of origin in Ireland. Available in both hardcover and CD.

BOOK - Land of the Loyalists, Their struggle to shape the Maritimes
By Janice Potter-MacKinnon
Published by McGill-Queen's University Press, Montreal, 1995
Fleeing the American Revolution, Loyalists arrived in the Maritimes driven by a dream: out of the desolate wilderness of present-day Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, they would carve a distinctive cultural and social landscape. Closer to Britain than any of the American states, and only a short sea voyage from New York, the Maritimes seemed to offer the Loyalists a fresh canvas on which to imprint their ideals. In transplanting their British sensibility, ideas of material culture, and respect for order and institutions, the Loyalist leaders attempted to establish New Ireland, a melding of rebellious New England and loyal New Scotland. (Nove Scotia). But this dream for New Ireland was never realized. The Loyalist struggle to impose material and social refinements, and to cultivate a sense of civic responsibility, was frustrated by inhospitable land, long winters, and reluctant inhabitants. Still, the Loyalist legacy is evident today throughout the Maritimes - in the architecture of towns such as Fredericton, New Brunswick and Shelburne, Nova Scotia, and in the social and political institutions of the entire region. This book explores the Loyalists' settlement patters, land distribution, and architectural efforts, as well as the Black Loyalist experience, giving a thorough and engaging look at the forces that created the Loyalist imprint in the Maritimes.

BOOK - Planters, Paupers, and Pioneers: English Settlers in Atlantic Canada
By Lucille H. Campey
Lucille Campey studies evidence of early English settlement in Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland. Beginning with the Planters and Loyalists of English descent who arrived from the United States in the second half of the 18th century, she goes on to consider the growing influx directly from England after 1815 and ends with the assisted emigration schemes of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, including those that involved destitute children. Detailed information relating to ship crossings and settlement locations is distilled to provide new insights on how, why, and when the four Atlantic provinces came to acquire their English settlers. What attracted them? Was the rapid industrialization taking place in England a major push factor? How did trade links influence settlement locations?

American Revolution / United Empire Loyalists:
    In response to protests in Boston over the British Parliament's attempts to maintain authority over its North American colonies, the British mobilized its army to put down the rebellion. Consequently the rebels formed militias of like-minded individuals to face the British military and to 'discourage' those colonial citizens who wished to remain loyal to the crown. Fighting broke out in 1775, offically ending in 1783 with the signing of the Treaty of Paris. Surviving Loyalists needed to find refuge outside of the United States. The movement of United Empire Loyalists to Canada was a critical event in the settlement of what later became Canada. Loyalists settled throughout the present-day Atlantic provinces, Quebec and Ontario. Their descendants migrated throughout Canada and beyond.

BOOK - For Want of His Silver Plate, Sir John Johnson's Raid of May 1780   
By Gavin K. Watt
Published by Global Heritage Press, Ottawa, 2018
It is unknown when Sir John Johnson first contemplated a major raid into his homeland of Tryon County’s Mohawk District. After evading capture in May 1776, he had anticipated a very short exile in Quebec and a triumphant return to the family seat of Johnson Hall, but that was not to be. For Want of His Silver Plate relates the history of Sir John Johnson's raid of 1780, providing much detail about individual events and people. Beyond the value of the narrative, the lists included in the Appendices will be of great value to military historians and genealogists alike. ISBN 978-1-77240-119-6 (bound)     More Information

BOOK - A Service History and Master Roll of Major Edward Jessup's Loyal Rangers
By Gavin K. Watt with the research assistance of Todd A. Braisted
Published by Global Heritage Press, Ottawa, 2017
The families of Edward Jessup’s Loyal Rangers were major contributors to the settlement of eastern Ontario. Of the original thirteen townships, four were primarily settled by Loyal Rangers, yet the history of this important regiment has largely disappeared. There are two sections to this book. The history element goes back to the very beginning when men were preparing for military service, and follows the varied paths they took to see their plans realized, some with more success than others. A great deal of attention is given to General John Burgoyne’s expedition of 1777, as the several units that were brought together to create the Loyal Rangers in 1781 had served separately under Burgoyne, and the majority suffered for it. The history follows the aftermath of Burgoyne’s surrender -- exile in Quebec, squabbling among the officers, lack of proper employment, little subsistence and no pay. In 1778, there was a failed attempt to combine them into a single battalion followed by many more exasperating events. Bodies of men were sent on military raids and scouts, but their future as separate regiments remained uncertain until the governor took the situation in hand and forced an amalgamation in 1781. The history finishes with details of the war’s final two years and the subsequent disbandment and settlement. The second section is a Loyal Rangers’ Master Roll, which was assembled by examining a great many original and secondary sources. The roll records the details of seven hundred and sixteen men whose names were found on Loyal Rangers’ returns of 1781 to 1783 ISBN 978-1-77240-076-2 (soft cover - coil bound)     More information

BOOK - A Short Service History and Master Roll of James Rogers' 2nd Battalion, King's Rangers
By Gavin K. Watt
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2015
After more than thirty years of studying the loyalist regiments that served in Quebec during the American Revolution, author Gavin k. Watt concluded that Major James Rogers’ 2nd battalion, King’s Rangers was sadly overlooked and required additional attention. There are two main sections to this book. First is a brief service history of the 2nd battalion from its creation in 1779 until disbandment in 1783. Second – by consulting original and secondary sources, Watt prepared a Master Roll of three hundred and fifty-eight men listing alternate spellings of surnames and given names, rank, enlistment date, company, service details, age, height, place of origin, trade, wife and family, and place of settlement. Of course, not all of these details could be found for every man, but the roll is pleasingly complete. In 1784, Rogers led a party of disbanded King's Rangers and their families to the Third Township of Cataraqui, later known as the Township of Fredericksburgh, in Lennox County, Ontario, where they were granted land.

Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2016
Soldiers did not come alone. In the past, wives, mothers, fathers, grandparents, sisters, brothers and children of the fighting men have been given secondary treatment. In Loyalist Refugees, they are the subjects of a study describing the systematic persecution that forced so many to seek refuge in Quebec. How these unfortunate people were housed, fed, clothed and employed is examined, as is their desperate unhappiness and discontent. This book identifies and lists details for more than 2,000 non-military loyalist refugees who sheltered in lower Quebec during the American Revolution—pointing researchers to crucial primary and secondary sources in Canada, the USA, and the UK. Many if not most of these refugees migrated to places across British North America and beyond, after their period of sanctuary in Quebec.

By Gavin Watt. With research assistance of T.W. Braisted, and acknowledgement of Dr. P.L. Stevens' works

The majority of accounts about military campaigns concentrate on the big-name personalities who directed operations or commanded large formations. In contrast, this book is primarily about the 'little' and 'littler' men. For a list of names from the index, see "More information". ISBN 978-1-926797-70-0 (Hardcover)   More information

BOOK - The Hessians And The Other German Auxiliaries Of Great Britain In The Revolutionary War.
By Edward J. Lowell (This historical reprint by Global Heritage Press)
The history of the German auxiliaries, who fought for Great Britain in the Revolutionary War, has not received from American writers the amount of attention which its importance would seem to deserve. Much of the original source material used by the author in 1884 was lost due to bombing during the Second World War. This circumstance heightens the the importance of this early work.

BOOK - Sketches Illustrating The Early Settlement and History of Glengarry in Canada
By J. A. MacDonell.
J. A. MacDonell recognized that much had been written on the subject of United Empire Loyalist settlement in Ontario, the War of 1812-14, and the Rebellion of 1837-8, but expressed concern that there was little mention made of the part that the Highlanders of Glengarry played in those conflicts. He corrects that oversight within the 29 chapters that comprise this formitable text. This book is an fine source of information for those interested in early settlement of the Highlanders in Glengarry and surrounding counties, and the role that they played in the American Revolution, United Empire Loyalist migration and settlement, War of 1812, and the Rebellion of 1837-38.
