Muster Rolls, Soldiers and Loyalists, Spring 1785 List

The following Muster Roll of Disbanded Officers, Discharged & Disbanded Soldiers with their respective families that are settled and preparing to settle in the Island of Saint John, is undated, but has the number "153" scrawled above the Names Column. This is believed to be the list of those from Rhode Island who arrived on the Island in the spring of 1785, brought to the Island by Daniel Grandin [who had first arrived on the Island in Sept. 1784 and drawn land in Pinette River - see 19 Sept 1784 list]. They had expected to settle upon lot 66, but, as Grandin could not fulfill the condition of his agreement with Gov. Patterson that he bring 1500 settlers and they settled on land in lots 56 and 58 instead.
