Claims and Memorials
Memorial of Jared Bell of Connecticut

To the Honourable Commissioners
appointed by Act of Parliament for
enquiring into the Losses and services of the
American Loyalists.

The Memorial of Jared BELL late of Stanford in the Colony of Connecticut, now of Saint John in the Province of New Brunswick

Humbly sheweth

That at the Commencement of the late American War he took an active decided part in support of His Majesty’s Government and soon after the Kings Troops landed on Long Island he joined them and afterwards was employed in supplying the Garrison at New York where he remained until a few months previous to the Evacuation when he came to settle in this Province where he has remained ever since except when absent on Business as a mariner.

That your memorialist has been uniformly loyal and in Consequence of that Loyalty, and from his Attachment to the British Government, has been compelled to leave his Estate in the hands of the Americans who have actually confiscated and sold the same all which is fairly and particularly stated in the Schedule hereunto annexed.

Your Memorialist therefore prays that his Case may be taken into your Consideration, in order that your memorialist may be enabled under your Report to receive such Aid or Relief as his Losses and services should be found to deserve, and he as in Duty bound,

will ever pray &c.
