THE CONFISCATED ESTATES

OF

BOSTON LOYALISTS.

The members of the Massachusetts Historical Society are doubtless aware that the land on which the Society's building now stands was confiscated during the Revolutionary War, as the property of a Loyalist, the Rev. Henry Caner, the Rector of King's Chapel. His estate is described in the Inventory taken January 22, 1779, as "A Dwelling House, Barn &c. situate in Tree Mont Street near the Stone Church, with the Land & Appurtenances," and it was appraised at £2550. The lot was then two hundred feet from front to rear. The entire estate was bought for £750, at private sale, of the Committee empowered by the General Court to sell the estates of conspirators and absentees. The purchaser was Samuel Henly. The deed, dated April 8, 1782, was not recorded until September 30, 1793 (Suffolk Deeds, Lib. 177, fol. 82). By certain mesne conveyances, the front part of this estate on Tremont Street became the property of the Society in 1856 (Lib. 695, fol. 55).

The adjoining estate on the North, which now forms part of the Boston Museum, was also confiscated. It was the property of William Brattle, a Loyalist.

The estates of Loyalists were sold under an Act passed April 30, 1779, entitled "An Act to confiscate the estates of certain notorious Conspirators against the Government and liberties of the inhabitants of the late Province, now State, of Massachusetts Bay"; an Act passed May 1,1779, entitled "An Act for confiscating the estates of certain persons commonly called Absentees"; an Act passed 1780, entitled "An Act to provide for the Payment of Debts due from the Conspirators and Absentees, and for the recovery of debts due to them"; an Act in addition to that Act; and under various resolves of the General Court.

I have compiled, from the records in the Suffolk Registry of Deeds, a list of these confiscated estates, giving the date of record of the deed, the name of the Loyalist owner and of the purchaser at the sale, the Lib. and fol. of the record, and a brief description of the confiscated land. These estates are one hundred and fifty-nine in number, and they belonged to forty-nine different owners. Nineteen parcels of land were taken from Governor Hutchinson, the Committee receiving for them £98,121 4s. 2½d. His mansion-house on the corner of Fleet and Hanover Streets brought £33,500. Eighteen parcels were taken from Eliakim Hutchinson, of the value of £4,385. Samuel Sewall lost fourteen pieces of land at £5,040 5s. The highest price brought by any single estate was £102,000. This was paid for dwelling-house and land on both sides of Summer Street, belonging to Sir William Pepperell the younger. The sum total of all these sales amounted to £529,591 18s. 8d. But as the deeds recite that the consideration was paid sometimes in "gold and silver," sometimes in "gold or silver or its equivalent in paper," sometimes in "specie " or "coined specie," sometimes in "lawful silver money," sometimes in "specie and paper," sometimes in "specie or its paper equivalent," sometimes in "lawful money," and sometimes in "Continental currency," these figures are very misleading.

By an Act passed April 9, 1777, and an Act in addition thereto, passed October 16, 1778, the Judge of Probate for each county was authorized to appoint agents for the estates of absentees in such county. The Suffolk County Probate Records contain the following names of absentees:—

Several of these names are not to be found in Sabine's Loyalists of the American Revolution; and we are able also from these records to make a few additions to the names of Loyalists in the Memorial History of Boston, III. 175.

These lists have been compiled from notes and memoranda made by me many years ago, while engaged in making researches in the County Records, when those records were not as accessible as they now are. It is possible, indeed, that further investigations and future improvements in methods of indexing may bring to light a few more names. But it is not probable, however; and these lists may be considered as practically complete, so far as the records in these two public offices are concerned. In some cases where confiscated estates were actually sold, the purchaser failed to record his deed.

This, with much other material, was collected and laid aside until I should have leisure to use it in a long-contemplated work. But as this period of leisure is still remote, and may come to me, as it often does to others, too late, I have thought it best to put a part, at least, of this material at the disposal of historical students and investigators, by making it immediately accessible in print. In this way it will be safe from destruction and loss, and will be available to others. It illustrates an exceedingly interesting and important chapter in the history of Boston.
