BOOK - Ontario People: 1796-1803 - NEW PRICE -
With Introduction and Index by Norman K. Crowder
By Keith Fitzgerald
Published by Genealogical Publishing Comany, Baltimore, 1993 (reprinted 1998)
After the American Revolution, several thousand families came to settle in the western part of Quebec, later called Upper Canada, then Canada West and today Ontario. These settlers were former members of American Loyalist regiments, discharged British and German servicemen, and some civilians and refugees. They were offered grants of 200 acres of land on condition that they take an oath of allegiance and remain loyal to the British regime. The military and Loyalist arrivals who had come earlier received larger grants, generally in relation to their services to the Crown, their rank or status, and family size. Some entries show, for example, relationships, deaths, military service, maiden names of married women, and remarriage of widows.
