Stephen Davidson's Publications
Stephen is one of the most popular Loyalist Authors of our time. I encourage you to visit his website. His accomplishments are many but the three most recent; "The Burdens of Loyalty," tales of Loyalist Refugees, and "Letters For Elly," a wonderful story of a young girl and her Loyalist ancestors spirit (reminds me of the own story, "Holy Smokes! I've Got A Loyalist in My Locker", a project that has just not made it to completion.). Stephen also has articles in nearly every issue of the free Loyalist Internet newsletter, Loyalist Trails published by Editor, Doug Grant email@example.com. Check out his site listed below. It is very well done.
I HEAR 'TIS GETTING SOLIDLY ON
By Norma Jane Langford
Norma Jane Langford is a freelance writer with a special interest in history. She is an active member of the Colonial Loyalist Alliance of Massachusetts. While helping to create a Tory Trail map linking Loyalist house museums there, she became fascinated by the trials of those "other" Americans before and during the siege of Boston---or the Blockade, depending on whose side you are on---and the drama of their flight, their reception in Halifax, and their struggle to pick up the pieces of their lives and start over.
The names she has tracked include: Allen, Alpin, Bayley, Boardwood, Broderick, Burton, Byles, Chandler, Chipman, Deblois, Dickinson, Dumaresq, Etter, Faneuil, Flucker, Foster, Full, Gage, Gay, Geyer, Gilbert, Green, Griffith, Hancock, Hill, Holmes, Hooper-Lee-Nichols, Howe, Hubbard, Hutchinson, Jarvis, Jay, Johnson, Knox, Lechmere, Leonard, Lewis, Logan, Lovell, Mackinstrey, Marston, Oliver, Paxton, Pelham, Percy, Phipps, Putnam, Richards, Rogers, Rose, Ruggles-Fayerweather, Stow, Sutherland, Thomas, Vassall, Washington.
This publication is an excellent outline of many Massachusetts Loyalists and their selected struggles that changed their lives forever. Norma Jane's professional writing skills are displayed in presenting each family's encounters, confiscations, trials and banishments.
