** The proper spelling is WANAMAKER or WANNAMAKER. But this spelling has been seen many times in early transcripts. This family has been well researched by me, back to 1450. 7 brothers came to Canada as Loyalists. 4 of these brothers fought in this war, Peter, Henry, John and possibly Jacob. But Peter being the only one listed in this Old UEL List Appendix B, which was very surprising to me, because all original hand written Land Petitions in Ontario dating 1791 are in my possession, except Henry and John who are probably in New Brunswich. 3 eldest brothers are listed in many New Jersey Volunteers 4th Batt. Muster Rolls as Soldiers along with several cousins. Jacob is still in question meaning he may not have joined the Royal Standard until the War was nearly over, if at all. **See Notes. The 3 youngest brothers who did not fight and are not listed were Andrew, Thomas and Harmanus. Harmanus is my ancestor. It clearly says on Harmanus' Land Petition, Granted 200 acres 1791 (the same year he was 21 years old), the word "Loyalist" at the top of the front page. So why were they not listed nor inserted later? This Wanamaker/Wannamaker family married into many of these surnames throughout this List.

There is a man by the name of Jacob NANAMAKER who was later "inserted" onto this List. Many people believe this spelling could be an error in spelling by the early historians when he was "inserted" or first transcribed and this could be Jacob from this family. But there has never been proof found. Fact remains there is the spelling surname Nanamaker, I have been in contact with descendants of this surname and they do not have the same ancestry....
