Militia Records

Note: There are 8 pay lists submitted by McNabb in this series. The chart below lists the name of each man and the pay list(s) on which his name appears. The days served and pay requested have not been transcribed. Note: Abbreviated names are recorded in full (Wm = William) to aid in digital searching. The lists were not strictly alphabetical though were bunched according to first letter. Names were written as Smith, John but are recorded reversed.

These pay lists offer a good example of the desertions, absentees and general lack of enthusiasm for enrolling with the militia. Note how many men showed up once or twice for duty. The book, Plunder, Profit, and Paroles, A Social History of the War of 1812 in Upper Canada, George Sheppard, McGill, Queen's Univ. Press, 1994 gives an excellent account of the lack of support for the war by the farming settlers.
