On Aug. 22, 1775 -
England's King George III proclaimed the "American colonies in a state of open rebellion."
PROCLAMATION "Those loyalists who have adhered to the Unity of the Empire and joined the Royal standard before
the Treaty of Separation in the year 1785, and all their children and their descendants by either sex are to be
distinguished by the following capitals, affixed to their names; U.E. Alluding to their Great Principle - The Unity Of The
In November, 1789, Lord Dorchester, requested the council at Quebec "to put a mark of honor upon the families who
adhered to the unity of the Empire and joined the Royal Standard in America before the treaty of separation in the year
1783." The council concurred, and thereafter all Loyalists were "to be distinguished by the letter U.E. affixed to their
names, alluding to their great principle, the unity of the Empire." A register of the U.E. Loyalists was ordered to be kept,
and for twenty years names were added to this list. The distinction has not been assumed.
The Loyalists resident in New York went to Britain, Nova Scotia, and Upper Canada. It is estimated that 2,000 persons
crossed the Atlantic between 1775 and 1785, a number of whom, however, afterwards came to Canada.
The Commission opened their investigation in October, under the following classification: -
0. Those who had rendered services to Great Britain.
1. Those who had borne arms against the revolution.
2. Uniform Loyalists.
3. Loyalists resident in Great Britain.
4. Those who took oaths of allegiance to the American States,
but afterward joined the British.
5. Those who armed with the Americans and later joined the British army or navy.
Claimants had to state specifically in writing the nature of their losses. Claims were first ordered to be presented by
March 25th, 1784, but the time was later extended till 1790. On the first date mentioned, 2,063 claims were presented,
representing a loss of about $35,000,000 in real and personal property. $11,770,000 in debts and $443,000 in incomes,
