Records of the Bay of Quinte

Why these two newspaper documents are of interest:
The Loyalist men named below had their land confiscated in Bergen County, NJ.
This county is adjacent to Rockland County, NY and many families came to the Bay of Quinte from this area.

Peter Johnson, President of the UEL Assoc of Canada had this to say: "Without checking every name I would think that both the New Jersey Volunteers and the King's Orange Rangers are represented. The Van BUSKIRK family for one were involved in both regiments. The Henry or Hendrick REDNER is likely the man who settled in Rednersville later.  His brother Peter REDNER also settled in the area a few years afterwards and these REDNER brothers were both in the NJV. "

Thanks to Mark Davenport for sharing these two newspaper clippings obtained from America's Historical Newspapers. and the third from Google Books.

Names in yellow are possible matches in the Upper Canada record.
Let me know if you see connections to add.
