State of the late Corps of Pennsylvania Loyalists

The following 1785 document, included with a petition to Thomas Carleton, Governor of New Brunswick, for a Warrant of Survey of a grant of land to the disbanded officers and men of the Pennsylvania Loyalists, lists 48 men, (of whom 13 were absent from New Brunswick) 11 wives, 9 children, and 1 widow, for a total of 69, or, excluding the absentees, 56. Neither of these totals coincides with Wright's numbers on p. 248, Loyalists in New Brunswick.
