Sabine’s work remains to this day the standard biographical dictionary of the Loyalists. There are three quite distinct parts to the book: a balanced historical essay of some 150 pages; biographical sketches, alphabetically arranged, comprising the vast bulk of the work; and some 120 pages of “Fragments”–brief notices of approximately 1,500 Loyalists not covered in the biographies. The biographical sketches comprise notices of several thousand individuals and contain references to dates and places of birth and death, residence, occupation, military service, wives, children and other family members, an indication as to whether the subject was banished or proscribed, or had land confiscated, and miscellaneous references to incidents and events of biographical significance.
