Search Loyalist Provincials' Burial Ground:

City of Fredericton, New Brunswick dates from 1783, when the United Empire Loyalists settled in Ste. Anne’s Point (site of present day Fredericton) after the American Revolution. About 2,000 Loyalists settled in the area of present day Fredericton including several army regiments. The first winter was harsh with early and severe snowfalls. Bedding was in short supply and many perished during that harsh winter of 1783/84. Those who perished were buried in what became the Loyalist Provincials' Burial Ground, which is still found on the south bank of the Saint John River.
