SIR JOHN JOHNSON'S RENT ROLL OF THE KINGSBOROUGH PATENT [In The Public Record Office AC 13/114 (Extract)]
This excerpt is from an article in the Papers and Records of the Ontario Historical Society, Volume LII, 1960. The full article was by Duncan Fraser, and this list of the original renters in TRYON County, New York State, was from a submission Sir John Johnson made in a Loyalist Claim for losses. This Rent Roll was found in the Public Record Office in London, England, as noted above. Many of the people listed here served in the King's Royal Regiment of New York, Butler's Rangers and the 84th Regiment. Thanks go to Eric Eamon for making this transcript available for inclusion here. Note:-The rent is in pounds, shillings and pence.
