NORTH CAROLINA LOYALISTS DURING THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION

Appendix D - Pension Rolls

These lists of North Carolinians who received pensions from the British Government are believed to be complete for the years given. Not only did the names constantly change as older members died and new names were added, but the amount allowed to the same individual varied from time to time. The names certify to the loyalty of certain families within the state to the King's cause. - Robert DeMond
