Many of you will be familiar with the history of this publication. Cruikshank's history of the King's Royal Yorkers was published by the Ontario Historical Society in 1931. It was reprinted in 1984 along with photos, illustrations and the Muster Roll by Gavin Watt. The 1984 edition is certainly sought after and quite expensive.
Now we have the long-awaited 2006 update with corrections, and a Master Roll of the Yorkers which has been reworked, added to, and corrected. For those of you with KRRNY KRRNY King's Royal Regiment of New York ancestors, this is heaven! Even if you don't Even If You Don't is a single released by the band Ween in 2000 on Mushroom Records.

For each identified Yorker, you will get a surname, given name, born/died, enlistment date, Battalion, Service details, Domicile/trade, and where settled and with what family. Obviously the data included is going to vary from entry to entry.
In the earlier edition there were photos of reenactors in uniforms. That has been avoided this time, because of new research on what the Yorkers wore and continuing debates about it. Rather there are photos of Yorker artefacts, especially the famous Jeremiah French Jeremiah French (July 8 1743-December 5 1820) was a soldier, judge and political figure in Upper Canada.
He was born in Stratford, Connecticut in 1743, later settling at Manchester, Vermont. He served with General John Burgoyne during the American Revolution. UE uniform, maps, Discharge Certificates, and other pertinent documents and pictures.
I have said it before regarding Gavin's other books. For Loyalist research, it doesn't get better than this! Imagine if we had books of this calibre for all the other Loyalist regiments!!
