Subject: Cape Breton Loyalists
I have seen transcriptions from the early colonial records that mention a William BROWN, a carpenter but I don’t think this is right! Later they show the name BOWN. He had a sloop that helped transport provisions to the early loyalists and he is also mentioned as getting land as a loyalist.
But my question is more elementary. If he was given land by Des Barres, for being British and a “loyalist”, wouldn’t he be designated the UE and his children be a son of a UE? Or didn’t they do that in Cape Breton Island?
I would love to speak to you about what other records I can find my Bown’s in or what transcriptions have been done. Do you think there were 2 William Bown families in early Cape Breton Island? Are there any bio’s about the early colonial executive committee or harbor masters or merchants?
I can see through the Krause reports that there were a number of his children – Thomas S Bown for one who carried on business in the town.
Thank you very much,
Ottawa, Ontario Canada
