Following the American Revolution, thousands of men, women and children abandoned their homes and families in the thirteen colonies and fled to territories still under the British flag. Many of these United Empire Loyalists, including James McMasters, were granted lands in the Bay of Quinte area where they established prosperous farms and raised thriving families. James McMasters originally settled in Adolphustown then moved with his family to Sidney Township. His descendants soon spread through the Quinte area and beyond. This is the story of some of those families and their 4000 descendants, published by General Store Publishing House in 1996.
