New York Loyalists' Memorial

 

[This memorial is obviously in response to the July 2nd 1782 petiton for lands by the famous (or infamous) Fifty-Five. The signers' names have been sorted alphabetically for ease of reference, and some necessary corrections made. Some names remain questionable. - RWH]

 

To his Excellency Sir Guy Carleton, Knight of the most honorable Order of Bath, General and Commander in Chief, &c., &c., &c.

The Memorial of the Subscribers Humbly Sheweth:

That your memorialists having been deprived of very valuable Landed Estates and considerable Personal Propertys without the Lines, and being Loyalty(sic) to their Sovereign and Attachment to the British Constitution and seeing no prospect of their being reinstated, had determined to remove with their Families and settle in His Majesty's Province of Nova Scotia on the Terms which they understood were held out equally to all his Majesty's persecuted Subjects.

That your Memorialists are much alarmed at an application which they are informed Fifty-Five Persons have joined in to your Excellency solliciting a recommendation for Tracts of Land in that Province amounting together to Two Hundred and Seventy Five Thousand Acres and that they have dispatched forward Agents to survey the unlocated lands and select the most fertile Spots and desirable situations.

That chagrined as your Memorialists are at the manner in which the late Contest has been terminated, and disappointed as they find themselves in being left to the lenity of their Enemys on the dubious recommendation of their Leaders, they yet hoped to find an Asylum under British Protection, little suspecting there could be found among their Fellow sufferers Persons ungenerous enough to attempt ingrossing to themselves so disproportionate a Share of what Government has allotted for their common benefit and so different from the original proposals.

That your memorialists apprehend some misrepresentations have been used to procure such extraordinary recommendations, the applications for which have been most studiously concealed until now, that they boast its being too late to prevent the effect. Nor does it lessen your Memorialists surprise to observe that the persons concerned (several of whom are said going to Britain) are most of them in easy Circumstances and with some exceptions more distinguished by the repeated favors of Government than by either the greatness of their sufferings or the importance of their services.

That your memorialists cannot but regard the Grants in Question if carried into effect as amounting nearly to a total exclusion of themselves and Familys who, if they become Settlers, must either content themselves with barren or remote Lands or submit to be Tenants to those most of whom they consider as their superiors in nothing but deeper Art and keener Policy, thus circumstanced.

Your Memorialists humbly implore redress from your Excellency and that enquiry may he made into their respective Losses, Services, Situations and Sufferings and if your Memorialists shall be found equally intitled to the favor and protection of Government with the former applicants — that they may all be put on equal footing — But should those who first applied be found on a fair and candid inquiry more deserving than your Memorialists — then your Memorialists humbly request that the locating these extensive Grants may at least be postponed untill your Memorialists have taken up such small portions as may be allotted to them.

And your Memorialists as in Duty bound shall ever pray &c.
