By: James H. Stark, Pub. 1910, reprinted 2024, 606 pages, Index, Ebook, ISBN #978-1-63914-296-5.  This book begins with the documenting of the trials of Loyalists at various levels of Massachusetts society, such as those of native-born Governor Thomas Hutchinson and John Singleton Copley, both of whom abandoned Massachusetts to live out the balance of their years in exile in Great Britain. Next the author describes general patterns of Loyalism, such as the confiscation of Loyalist property and the Loyalist exodus to Canada.  The bulk of this book is devoted to detailed biographies of specific Loyalist families. In most cases these biographies carry the family out to several generations, the events leading up to the family’s departure from the United States, and some account of the Loyalists’ post war fortunes or whereabouts.
