      11. Title: LOYALISTS LISTS
        Author: E. Keith Fitzgerald
        Publication: 1984
        Note: The government (Canadian) granted land to the Loyalists under the following conditions: one hundred acres to each head of a family, plus fifty acres to each family member; fifty acres to each single man; three hundred to one thousand acres to army officers, depending on rank; two hundred acres to each non-commissioned officer (NCO), and two hundred to their wives if they applied; one hundred acres to every private solier, plus fifty acres to each person in his family. The Loyalists drew lots for their locations, and when they had occupied the land for a year they received a permanent deed. At a meeting of the Executive Council in 1789 it was further ordained that sons, when they came of age, should receive two hundred acres, and daughters the same, except that, even if under age, they would receive the grant on marriage.
