The Memorial of Christopher Martyn
Christopher Martyn, grocer, recounts his flight first to New York (in 1776), then to Quebec (in 1783), and finally to England (in 1784). His Memorial speaks to how disorienting all this upheaval was.
Some themes his Loyalist Claim Commission memorial suggest include family experience and migration.
