It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject

THE CONFISCATED ESTATES 



OF 



BOSTON LOYALISTS. 



The members of the Massachusetts Historical Society are 
doubtless aware that the land on which the Society's building 
now stands was confiscated during the Revolutionary War, as 
the property of a Loyalist, the Rev. Henry Caner, the Rector 
of King's Chapel. His estate is described in the Inven- 
tory taken January 22, 1779, as "A Dwelling House, Barn 
&c. situate in Tree Mont Street near the Stone Church, with 
the Land & Appurtenances," and it was appraised at £2550. 
The lot was then two hundred feet from front to rear. The 
entire estate was bought for £750, at private sale, of the 
Committee empowered by the General Court to sell the estates 
of conspirators and absentees. The purchaser was Samuel 
Henly. The deed, dated April 8, 1782, was not recorded mitil 
September 30, 1793 (Suffolk Deeds, Lib. 177, fol. 82). By 
certain mesne conveyances, the front part of this estate on 
Tremont Street became the property of the Society in 1856 
(Lib. 695, fol. 56). 

The adjoining estate on the North, which now forms part of 
the Boston Museum, was also confiscated. It was the property 
of William Brattle, a Loyalist. 



4 CONFISCATED ESTATES 

The estates of Loyalists were sold under an Act passed April 
30, 1779, entitled " An Act to confiscate the estates of certain 
notorious Conspirators against the Government and liberties of 
the inhabitants of the late Province, now State, of Massachusetts 
Bay " ; an Act passed May 1, 1779, entitled " An Act for confis- 
cating the estates of certain persons commonly called Absen- 
tees " ; an Act passed 1780, entitled " An Act to provide for the 
Payment of Debts due from the Conspirators and Absentees, 
and for the recovery of debts due to them " ; an Act in addi- 
tion to that Act ; and under various resolves of the General 
Court. 

I have compiled, from the records in the Suffolk Registry of 
Deeds, a list of these confiscated estates, giving the date of 
record of the deed, the name of the Loyalist owner and of the 
purchaser at the sale, the Lib. and fol. of the record, and a 
brief description of the confiscated land. These estates are one 
hundred and fifty-nine in number, and they belonged to forty- 
nine different owners. Nineteen parcels of land were taken 
from Governor Hutchinson, the Committee receiving for them 
£98,121 4:8. 2^d. His mansion-house on the corner of Meet 
and Hanover Streets brought £33,600. Eighteen parcels were 
taken from Eliakim Hutchinson, of the value of £4386. 
Samuel Sewall lost fourteen pieces of land at £6040 6«. The 
highest price brought by any single estate was £102,000. 
This was paid for dwelling-house and land on both sides of 
Summer Street, belonging to Sir William Pepperell the younger. 
The sum total of all these sales amounted to £629,691 18«. 
8d. But as the deeds recite that the consideration was paid 
sometimes in '' gold and silver," sometimes in " gold or silver 
or its equivalent in paper," sometimes in " specie " or " coined 
specie," sometimes in "lawful silver money," sometimes in 
" specie and paper," sometimes in " specie or its paper equiva- 



OP BOSTON LOYALISTS. 5 

lent," sometimes in " lawful money," and sometimes in " Con- 
tinental currency," these figures are very misleading. 

By an Act passed April 9, 1777, and an Act in addition 
thereto, passed October 16, 1778, the Judge of Probate for each 
county was authorized to appoint agents for the estates of 
absentees in such county. The Suffolk County Probate Rec- 
ords contain the following names of absentees : —

Several of these riames are not to be found in Sabine's " Loyal- 
ists of the American Revolution *' ; and we are able also from 
these records to make a few p.dditions to the names of Loyalists 
in the " Memorial History of Boston," TIL 175. 

These lists have been compiled from notes and memoranda 
made by me many years ago, while engaged in making researches 
in the County Records, when those records were not as acces- 
sible as they now are* It is possible, indeed, that further in- 
vestigations and future improvements in methods of indexing 
may bring to light a few more names. But it is not probable, 
however ; and these lists may be considered as practically com- 
plete, so far as the records in these two public offices are 
concerned. In some cases where confiscated estates were ac- 
tually sold, the purchaser failed to record his deed. 



OF BOSTON LOYALIBTa 7 

This, with much other material, was collected and laid aside 
mitil^ I should have leisure to use it in a long-contemplated 
work. But as this period of leisure is still remote, and may 
come to me, as it often does to others, too late, I have thought 
it best to put a part, at least, of this material at the disposal of 
historical students and investigators, by making it immediately 
accessible in print. In this way it will be safe from destruction 
and loss, and will be available to others. It illustrates an ex- 
ceedingly interesting and important chapter in the history of 
Boston.
