Sunbury Co., …they could be found anywhere along the Saint John River area, as far up river as Fredericton.

When the Loyalist came in 1783, they were granted land in Parr Town, Sunbury County. This was actually what became Saint John City about one year later, when New Brunswick became a separate province, and the eight original Counties were set off. At that time Fredericton became it's capital, and Saint John became the first incorporated city in what would one day become Canada."

Evidences: Cites as witness Joshua Lamoureux of N.B. (A013/22/148-149) Special Publication #45, 1980, Nat Genealogical Soc.

"... Josue,[Lamoreaux] came to N.B. along with other loyalist Huguenot families. From there he and his wife Elizabeth Ogden, with their seven children and two young nephews, moved on to Upper Canada and settled in Scarborough." P ?

JOSUE L’AMOREAUX, founder of the L”Amoreaux settlement in the north western corner of Scarborough, was a descendant of a French Huguenot, Andre L’Amoreaux, a shipmaster and pilot of the little port of Meschers near Bordeaux. After the Revocation of the Edit of Nantes in 1685, he and his wife and two children escaped from France to Bristol, England; and in 1700 the family came to New York, when Andre became a captain of a merchant vessel. When the British evacuated New York at the end of the American Revolutionary war in 1783, his grandson, Josue, came to New Brunswick, along with other Loyalist Huguenot families. From there he and his wife, Elizabeth Ogden, with their seven children and two young nephews, moved on to Upper Canada and settled in Scarborough.

Their sons Isaac and James had ten children apiece and our L’Amoreaux area soon developed into a vigorous Huguenot settlement. In 1817 a little log school was built,”

A History of Scarborough, Robert Bonis, 1965. P 46

On the northern border of the Township another Scottish immigrant, Robert Rennie, a few years after his arrival in Canada in 1833, acquired the lot destined to become famous throughout Ontario as Kelvin Grove Farm. Lot 30, Concession 5, which had been purchased by Joshua L’Amoreaux in 1832 for 75 pounds sterling, was sold to Robert Rennie on February 17th 1838, for 175 pounds sterling. [see 1838]

Loyalist Petition of Josué Lamoree, #128 - Dec 16, 1784

"The smaller houses, 'shanties,' perhaps ten feet by eight feet and six feet high, had a roof of a single slope; the larger ones, 'log houses,' perhaps fifteen feet by twenty and nine feet high, sometimes had a peaked roof. Rounded logs, notched near the ends, or dovetailed square logs, were piled to form a rectangle, the base logs being supported with rocks. The chinks were caulked with wood chips and moss, and plastered with clay. The roof consisted of poles covered with bark... At first the door might be a blanket or quilt or a couple of rough boards fitted with wooden hinges and locks. One or two tiny windows were covered with government-issued glass, oiled paper, or a sliding board. Sometimes there were no windows... Floors were at first dirt, then logs split in half. A small hole under some of the loose boards served as a root cellar.

"...lighting a fire was not easy;... Settlers worked to keep fires going permanently. Firewood needed at the rate of 5 or 6 cords per head per year, was readily available, but very expensive if purchased already cut because of labor and transportation costs.

"Fireplaces and wooden buildings were a constant fire hazard not only to the family but to the whole settlement."

"After a fireplace the priority was a bed. ...a latrine,... a rough hewn cupboard, a table... bench or two which, added to a few knives, kettles, and some treasured pewter-ware brought from his former home, completed his humble abode. In time, improvements- a proper door, better windows, an attic, and extra rooms- increased standards.

"...'King's chateaux,' as the French Canadians derisively called these cabins... A dreary contrast to our former conditions.'"

"...in 1791 ... Saint John 'well planned' with two churches and about five hundred houses 'well painted'... The shops, stores and wharfs, numerous and commodious.'"

"…chief business was land. In the first full year …nearly 1700 petitions on land matters alone. Most applicants merely wanted their promised piece of wilderness and were easily dealt with, but many situations were more complicated. In numerous cases surveys had been so slapdash that two families had overlapping claims...The council's work was made more burdensome by its unfamiliarity with the province, the lack of accurate maps and, until the spring of 1785, the absence of the new surveyor-general. "

"...early incorporation of Parr and Carleton as a city, to be called St John. ...Soon after upwards of 300 Saint John electors declared their grievances so great and their hopes in the new regime so confounded that they feared a second American Revolution - a community composed solely of Loyalists. ...The transformation from American Loyalist to New Brunswicker had begun"

"CROWN LAND GRANTS... free grants of Crown land …in Scarborough.

"… 'such as are desirous to settle on Lands of the Crown in the Province of Upper Canada.' Any person might apply for a farm lot of 200 acres, and at the discretion of the government he might be granted additional land up to 1,000 acres. Such grants were made free of all expenses, except for small fees payable to the government officials through whose hands the patent passed before it was completed and recorded. U.E. Loyalists and military claimants were, of course, exempt from payment of these fees, and enjoyed further special consideration. The sons and daughters of Loyalists were entitled to free grants of 200 acres apiece, ... Later the free grants to Loyalists were limited to those who were resident in the Province by July 28, 1798..."

"Petitioners for land had to give assurances that they would actually settle upon and improve their grants. After taking the oath of allegiance, a grantee received a Location Ticket, which described the position of his lot in the township by number and concession,..." p 288

"...in the list of original patentees of land in Scarborough, the date given for the patenting of a lot by a settler is usually somewhat later than the time of his actual arrival in the township." Location tickets were sometimes acquired and sold by speculators. "Two sevenths of the land was tied up in Clergy and Crown Reserves, and did not become available for ownership by actual settlers for a long time. …every seventh lot in the township was reserved for the support of a Protestant clergy. While most of these lots remained vacant... some were leased by early settlers; and eventually they were able to purchase them outright." P 289

It should also be noted that, while location tickets did not give legal title, land transitions based only on them often place before fees were paid and patents issued. Many lots changed hands several times in this fashion, so that in the list of patentees the name of the original grantee does not appear.

Many… early land speculators… absentee owners… lots often remained unoccupied for years until they could be sold to genuine settlers. A History of Scarborough, Robert Bonis, 1965. P 288-9

Upper Canada, Britain's first "inland colony," isolated and indefensible by the Royal Navy, seemed destined for a much more modest future than that of the favored Maritimes. The Upper Canada Loyalist was, therefore, less likely to be disappointed, less likely to be shocked by the wilderness." "the Loyalist moved about frequently, especially in the early years."

Victorious In Defeat, Wallace Brown, 1984, p 31-32

John Simco, chief administrative officer of Upper Canada, "…intended to persuade these secret loyalists to turn their backs on the United States and settle up north where the king was still the king. …he offered two hundred acres of land (sometimes more) to anyone who would come.

He "made food available for the new arrivals, and building materials and tools: 'nails, hammers, gimlets, plains, chisels, gouges, hinges, iron rimmed locks, padlocks, handsaws, …And it was promised that the children of the settlers would be given sizable stakes of land of their own as soon as they came of age."

Less than Glory, Gelb, Norman, 1984

"The embarkation point for the Loyalist bound for [Toronto] The route was navigable, but only with difficulty. From Lake Ontario to Montreal the river drops 225 feet in 190 miles, creating 120 miles of rapids, chiefly the Long Sault, the Galop, & the Beauharnois. The Sault rapids,… dropping 45 feet in 9 miles.

Four or five families and their modest belongings… 'Brigades' of ten or 12 bateaux…traveled together… At the rapids, passengers alighted with their valuables and the bateaux were poled and dragged… Progress could average 18 miles a day, hence the trip from Montreal to Kingston could be done in 10 days, but it might stretch into a month. At night the company usually went ashore and slept in tents… Always the journey could become unpleasant or dangerous from plagues of insects, rough accommodation, bad weather, and hazardous water." Victorious in Defeat,



"During the first thirty years, elementary and secondary education was primitive. The majority of the Loyalist children received little or none, other than what might be provided at home."

"Loyalist Canada was not particularly spiritual but it was a church-going society characterized by self-help and community effort, even among Anglicans and Catholics who possessed a pre-existing organization. Early settlers often relied on family prayers or a simple gathering in a barn or neighbor's house for bible reading.
