MUSTER ROLL
AT
GULLIVER'S HOLE,
ST MARY'S BAY
and
SISSIBOO

Conducted between June 1st and June 6th 1784


This list was compiled from a variety of printed lists. Once again there are variations in spellings of names. I have used the one I found used most frequently on the 4 lists consulted. In addition to the information given here the following was on some of the lists, Number of Men, Women, Children under 10, Children over 10 and Servants.

Under the description section the abbreviation DS means Discharged Soldier & DO means Discharged Officer. Under Located at I have no idea why there are a couple of entries with an occupation listed except perhaps as an indication that these people were transients who travelled from place to place in search of employment.

Gullivers Hole was in present day Digby Neck, Sissiboo was present day Weymouth and surrounding area and St Marys Bay would have included Gilbert's Cove, Plympton, Barton and Brighton.

The Muster Roll was used to determine the needs of the Colony so that proper amounts of provisions could be petitioned for in England.
