Loyalist Muster Rolls
Loyal American Association

Among the very first Loyalists under arms were these Bostonians.

Initially formed into five companies, and later reduced to three, these officers and men helped do guard duty and patrol the streets of Boston during the long siege.

They were not a standing corps but more of a militia, only doing duty by a rotation for the most part.

Within their ranks though were men who would go and play influential or more prominent roles, such as Job WILLIAMS, Edward WINSLOW, George LEONARD, Ebenezer BRIDGHAM, Constant CONNER, John Lindal BORLAND, Thomas Aston COFFIN, Hugh Mackay GORDON, Benjamin POLLARD, Zebedee TERRY and Seth WILLIAMS.

The corps was disbanded on the evacuation of Boston and the officers and men were allowed to go their separate ways.

Many of the well-to-do left for England while many of those mentioned above would become officers in Provincial regiments.

The rolls below are the only ones known to exist for the corps. There is a duplicate of the Third Company roll which resides in the Audit Office Papers.

To read more about this unit, please see the Regimental History of the Loyal American Association.
