The 55 distinguished gentlemen had sought grants of 5,000 acre tracts in Nova Scotia for each of them, stating, "that the Settling such a Number of Loyalists, of the most respectable Characters, who have Constantly had great Influence in His Majesty's Dominions will be highly Advantageous in diffusing and supporting a Spirit of Attachment to the British Constitution as well as to His Majesty's Royal Person and Family."
