Sandy McNamara UE is member of Toronto Branch and has done extensive research on this little-known document. 


1776 Declaration of Dependence

The Declaration of Dependence was signed over a period of three days, ending November 28, 1776.

The Declaration was signed by 547 Loyalists from New York. The signers were merchants, yeomen, freed slaves basically a mixed bag of people all wishing to remain loyal to the Crown.

The Declaration of Dependence has 491 more signatures than its counterpart which was signed earlier in 1776.

The Declaration of Dependence is in the library of the New York Historical Society.
