BOOK - British Army Pensioners Abroad, 1772-1899
By Norman K. Crowder
Published by Genealogical Publishing Company, Baltimore, 1995, reprinted 2012

Softcover... 48.95 (C$)

The book includes all British Army pensioners who retired to any place outside of Great Britain including Canada, Australia, Caribbean, Ceylon etc, for which records are available (1772-1899). The largest portion chose to settle in Canada.

British Army pensioners lived in the vicinity of every major center in the Canadian Atlantic Provinces, Quebec, and Ontario. In many cases their children and grandchildren emigrated to New England, New York, Michigan, and the American West. It is likely there are several million North Americans descended from these so-called "Chelsea pensioners." This book, which lists veterans who were discharged primarily during the period from 1800 to 1857, will help their descendants to trace their British origins.
