Loyalists
Morris Co. Up


The following list of Loyalists was obtained from:

Stryker, William S. , Adjutant-General of New Jersey. "The New Jersey Volunteers" (Loyalists) In The Revolutionary War. Trenton, N.J.: Printed for Private Distribution by Naar, Day & Naar, Book and Job Printers, 1887.

Page 3

The facts contained in this paper in reference to the Loyalists of New Jersey in the military service of the Crown during the Revolutionary war, are principally complied from Force's American Archives, O'Callaghan's Documentary History of New York, Gaines' Register, Howe's Narrative, Galloway's Pamphlets, Moore's Diary of the American Revolution, Dawson's Historical Magazine, Hatfield's History of Elizabeth, Whitehead's History of Perth Amboy, Minutes of the Provincial Congress and Council of Safety of New Jersey, Sparks' Writings of Washington, Simcoe's Military Journal, Greene's Life of General Greene, Pennsylvania Archives—first and second series, Lossing's Field-book of the Revolution, Tarleton's Southern Campaigns, Sir Henry Clinton's Narrative, Draper's Kings' Mountain, Dawson's Battles by Land and Sea, Barber & Howe's New Jersey Historical Collections, New York Journal, Rivington's Gazette, Ramsey's South Carolina, Sims' South Carolina, and the records on file in my office. But, of course, Sabine's Loyalists of the American Revolution has been constantly consulted; without it this sketch could certainly not have been written.

Although originally these lists were in Battalion order, I have placed them in alphabetical order for easier searching and to show that the different rank, battalion and years served. Surnames in bold indicate that there is additional information about that person (currently in process).
