My certain Loyalist was Henry Philip Lewis (or Philip Henry as is seen in
some cases) who was supposedly born in 1758 in Virginia or possibly Wales.
He was captured with Cornwallis at Yorktown and spent a year on the ship
"Bonetta" in New York Harbor as a prisoner on parole.

Crown Grant. He married Catherine Elizabeth Boutellier in Halifax, N.S. in
The CD is somewhat misnamed, as it is an index of surnames found on all the
letters which crossed Carleton's desk in New York, 1775-1783.
While many of those mentioned are Loyalists, the letters deal with a
multitude of matters which were of concern to a military commander.
I have searched the `L' file for you, and while there are 85 Lewis' listed,
there is no Henry Philip or Philip Henry. In fact, not one Henry or one
I also checked the LEWES spelling, as well as LOUIS. As with many old
documents, the writer wrote down what he thought he heard, often spelling
names phonetically. That is why I check every spelling I can think of.
Under these circumstances you may wish to save your money, but I will give
you the info you requested. Despite what the Order Form says, all the files

For what it is worth, I have done about 40 lookups in the past few weeks.
Some yielded results, others none, and I did not find the folks I was
looking for when I bought it. In a few days I will be away from the
computer for about 10 days, doing some research for myself.
