Hello, Joan, I would really like a look up of John Brown, b. 1712 in
Yorkshire;"soldier of rank" in New York in 1750. Settled in upper New York and
had nine children. His son, John Brown, b. 1742 in Yorkshire, was a Loyalist and moved to
Nova Scotia with his family in 1783, from what is now Greenwich, CT. I have his petition
for remuneration for his service to the Crown. Thank you. Shirley

Chelsea Pensions were awarded to British army personnel who were discharged with
served an extended period.
Many emigrants to Canada accepted a settlement , partial payment for transportation costs
and a short
period of support after, which left them destitute. Unless they wrote a begging letter,
their records are lost.
I have a copy of Norman K Crowder's "British Army Pensioners Abroad",
1772-1899, if anyone wants a look-up.
