Maryland Loyalism Project

The Memorial of Jonathan Boucher

Jonathan Boucher (1738-1804), an Anglican minister, was connected to leading Maryland families and officeholders and served a well-off parish. He sought compensation for his lost property confiscated after he left Maryland in 1775. He was the author of A View of the Causes and Consequences of the American Revolution; in Thirteen Discourses, Preached in North America between the Years 1763 and 1775, with an Historical Preface (London, 1797). He claimed a loss for the 36 people he had enslaved.

Some themes his Loyalist Claim Commission memorial suggest include confiscation and persecution.
