Note

Family history researchers should also refer to Colin Read's book, The Rising in Western Upper Canada, 1837-8 : The Duncombe Revolt and After (cited under The Rebellion in Upper Canada, 1837-1838, in the General References section) for lists of individuals connected with the Upper Canadian revolt led by Dr. Charles Duncombe. In a series of appendices, Read includes biographical notes on rebels and those who assisted them, suspected traitors, loyalists and others connected with "Duncombe's revolt". Similarly, Donald Graves' book, Guns Across the River: the Battle of the Windmill (2001), in that same section, includes the militia pay lists for November 1838 (appendix C, p. 216-226) and a list of the patriot hunters who fought at Prescott (appendix D, especially p. 230-239). As well, Jack Cahill's book, Forgotten Patriots: Canadian Rebels on Australia's Convict Shores (1998), found in under The Prisoners and Exiles in the Personal Stories section, includes a partial list of those transported to Australia. Similarly, Colin Duquemin's Niagara Rebels: the Niagara Frontier in the Upper Canada Rebellion, 1837-1839 (2001), under The Rebellion in Upper Canada, 1837-1838, in the General References section, includes an appendix with personal information and biographical details on the insurgents involved in the battle of Short Hills in June 1838.

For researchers interested in events in Lower Canada, the website "Les patriotes de 1837@1838", cited in the Web Research section, includes a searchable database of "Patriotes", with biographical sketches.
