Veteran Profiles A to C

Compiled by Fred Blair, with the Assistance of Fraser Closson & Stephen Wood
If you like to be a part of this project, please contact the project coordinator for more information.

The format used:

  • Rank and Name (Years of Birth and Death)
  • Service Records
  • Profile Information

Only the highest rank held is in the profile title. Some men were promoted and demoted. Where no rank is shown, the rank was Private. Troopers were paid as Privates. There were variations in the spelling of surnames. Two or more men with the same name sometimes served under the same officer. Some men also served in other regiments and corps.

The 3rd York Militia veterans often served at the York Garrison (Fort York) with other regiments and corps, which gave the officers the opportunity to form mixed companies and detachments from more than one regiment. A number of men also served away from the rest of their company or detachment. These men were “on command”, with the commissariat, with the engineering department or with other groups. Desertion or “absent without leave” was common. These men could be fined if they were charged. The British were reluctant to charge deserters as they were dependent upon the good will of the Upper Canadians. Desertion to the enemy was treasonous but not common.

NOTE: In each profile, the source used to provide the information is indicated by letters and numbers in brackets, e.g., (3Y16). The details of these sources can be found using these letters and numbers at the project’s Sources page.
