Current update 15 March 2018


   Elgin County was first settled after 1803 when many of the UE Loyalists had already taken up land in earlier settlement areas following the creation of  Upper Canada (now Ontario) at the end of the Revolutionary War in 1783.  Consequently, Elgin County was favourable land for the Sons and Daughters of UE Loyalists who were by allowed by Orders in Council, 200 acres of “Waste Lands of the King” as SUE (Sons of United Empire) Loyalists and DUE (Daughters of United Empire) Loyalists. Those sons and daughters were required to be of age and  proof was required that there father was a confirmed as UE Loyalist.

   This document will list sources for the few UE Loyalists that settled in Elgin County as well as for their Sons and Daughters that settled in the Five Townships that made up Elgin County (Bayham, Malahide, South Dorchester, Yarmouth, Southwold, Dunwich and Aldborough)

   The “Compendium” will link the Upper Canada Land Petition (UCLP) images that are available online at Archive Canada and  as well as other pertinent online primary source images.

Sons and Daughters of UE Loyalists in Elgin County

Land request petitions for SUE and DUE of approximately 75 UE Loyalists

“The proclamation also granted Loyalists and their families the right to obtain land (and later, to have fees waived for free grants), and to have the mark “UE” inscribed on militia rolls. Loyalists in Upper Canada and their families mostly used the land-related privileges. In the records, you may find the mark “UE”, or “DUE” (daughter), or “SUE” (son) of United Empire Loyalists.”

BRADT, Adrian

(I don’t see anything that confirms that he himself is a UE Loyalist- all descendants give him as Arent or Aaron UEL which causes some debate here as to whether this actually is the father of the chidlren from Nelson?)

Lives in Grantham, married now in 1797 has 6 children (5 in 1795) 2 born before 1789 Family lands – Doesn’t appear that he is claiming to be a UE Loyalists but does claim wife in earlier petition was UE – So this fits with Sophie Van FALKENBURG aka FOLLICK  being UE if she is wife of Adrian

BRADT, Arent, UEL 

“…this Arent was Arent A., b. 1732 in Schenectady and died in 1796 in S. Lincoln, Canada.  He was a prominent Loyalist and is the one who suffered a long imprisonment in the States, per his land petition of 1794.  He was a Captain under Sir John Johnson.  His wife, Eve (Van Antwerp) asked for family lands after her husband died, in 1797, as did several of their children, Peter, Margaret, and Roger (Ryer).  I’m not sure if the two other children, (Andrew and John) received land. The entire family settled in the Niagara area.  Arent’s sister, Catalina, was married to John Butler.  Could the Arent b. 1771 have been a son of Arent A.?  Not likely. There was no son named Arent in Arent A’s will in 1796.  Also all the children were baptized in the Schenectady Reformed Church, where there is no Arent b. 1771 listed.” (courtesy of Laurie Grimes 2018)

Dictionary of Canadian Biography for Mahlon BURWELL

“That during the Rebellion in America your Memorialist’s Father Adam BURWELL of Bertie in the Niagara District was frequently employed on very hazardous secret service, by Officers in the service of His Majesty, which he most humbly conceives is made  evident by the several Affidavits which accompany his Father’s Petition. That in the time of the Rebellion your Memorialist’s Father has a Wife and three small Children who looked to him for support which made it impracticable for him to follow the Army Constantly on account of whom and the uncertainty of the Operations of His Majesty’s Army he found it necessary to have his name kept secret, excepting to a very few for fear for the Rebels knowing that his life was at stake and the safety of his family greatly endangered. He often had instructions from Gen’l Cortland Skinner and other Officers in the King’s to perform services by way of Piloting detachments of His Majesty’s Troops by different Routes through the Provinces of Jersey and was always forced to destroy his Letters of Instruction soon after he received them – to that he has none remaining.”, 1816, 4.0, B 11, 164, pp. 786-788, RG 1 L3, C-1624
