Claims & Memorials
Witness on behalf of James Kitching of Georgia

I do hereby certify that James KITCHING Esquire late Collector of the Customs for the Port of Sunbury in the Province of Georgia did early in the Year 1776 on the revolt of the said Province from His Majestys Government, retire into the Province of East Florida under my Government, and gave me information of an intended attack to be made by the Rebels on the Frontier Posts, and on His Majestys Armed Schooner St. John then lying in St. Mary’s River by which information their designs were in some measure frustrated.

That on the threatened invasion of the said Province by General Lee in September 1776 he voluntarily offered his Service and did take up arms in a loyal Volunteer Company under the Command of Captain Henry YONGE, and that during his residence in East Florida he always behaved as a Loyal and dutiful Subject.

Given under my hand the 3rd day of February 1786.


Great Britain, Public Record Office, Audit Office, Class 13, Volume 36, folios 322-323.
