Pioneer Life Among The Loyalists In Upper Canada
An audio recording


Recording of Pioneer Life Among The Loyalists In Upper Canada by Walter Stevens Herrington. Read in English by David Wales

What became of the citizens who remained loyal to the Crown when the thirteen British colonies rebelled against England – and won! These Loyalists suffered discrimination and persecution in the nation aborning. Thousands of them left their homes for England; other thousands left for Canada and other British colonies. This book is about the Loyalists who settled in Upper Canada. “To present a picture of the early settlements of Ontario and enter into the daily life of the pioneers is a most fascinating task…. in our search for information concerning the evolution of the homestead, and the customs and peculiarities of the common folk of long ago.“ -
