Book-on-CD Edition

A comprehensive source for names of the claimants and their losses during the Rebellion of 1837-38 in Upper Canada including subsequent restitution amounts or rejection of claims in whole or in part.

The Rebellion Losses Bill was introduced by the coalition government of Robert Baldwin and Louis-Hippolyte La-Fontaine and passed into law in early 1849. It provided for compensation for those who lost property during the 1837 Rebellion. The legislation was very controversial with the minority Conservatives insofar as it treated those who sided with the rebels equally with those who did not rebel. Once the voting was complete and the Bill passed, the Conservatives reacted violently, burning the Parliament Buildings in Montreal and committing much other property and personal damage.

Some years ago we purchased a forty eight page document originally printed in 1849, that lists the individual claimants by their name, the amount of their claim in currency (sums claimed), the amount paid (sums allowed) or denied (rejected altogether) and the District in which the claimant resided. The Johnstown District claims include "Nature of Claim" and "remarks". Those entries shine much light on which side of the conflict that the claimants sympathized with along with details of ownership or personal information.

The records in the 1837 Rebellion Losses of Upper Canada are organized in this document by District. Upper Canada, later known as Canada West then Ontario in 1867, was originally organized in Districts. County boundaries existed -- however administration, courts and other civil functions were managed at the District level much like counties are now. The introduction includes maps of District boundaries in 1836 and in 1845.

The material on the cd is completely searchable by any name or phrase.
