LIST OF
CAPE BRETON LOYALISTS
Sp to Y

Compiled & Contributed by Robert J. Morgan, Ph.D.

 

"The following list of Cape Breton loyalists was compiled using various documents including victualling lists, correspondence and a few family histories. Since the Cape Breton authorities failed to draw up lists of loyalists as such, a great deal of cross-checking was necessary.  In most cases the author has relied on documentary evidence for names and information.  The two exceptions are the names Severence and Sheperd for which there are strong family traditions of loyalist ancestry but no documentary evidence as yet.  The author would appreciate any information available on any Cape Breton loyalist in order to make this list more complete and exact."
