Loyalist Muster Rolls
Volunteers of New England

This was a corps about which you could easily ask- Why did they bother?

The one New England Provincial Corps, the Loyal New Englanders had just been disbanded at Lloyd's Neck, Long Island when it reached the strength of less than one company.

The rationale was they would never be able to recruit up to strength, given the British didn't occupy any part of New England outside of Penobscot.

For that reason it is particularly strange that the British would authorize Joshua UPHAM of the Associated Loyalists to raise another New England Loyalist unit, styled the Volunteers of New England.

They actually existed for about a full year, with less than a company's strength, before being drafted into the King's American Dragoons.

There are a few rolls around for this group, including lists of recruits, all scattered about the National Archives of Canada. Some are in the RG 8, "C" Series, Volumes 1891 & 1893, while others are in the Ward Chipman Papers, MG 23, Volume 27.

For additional information on this unit, please see the Regimental History of the Volunteers of New England.
