Loyalist Muster Rolls
Guides and Pioneers

The Guides & Pioneers was a unique corps raised in December of 1776 at New York City.

It passed through a succession of commanders, including two foreigners: Captain Andreas EMMERICH of Germany, Major Samuel HOLLAND of New York, Captain (Major) Simon FRASER of the 71st Regiment, Colonel Beverly ROBINSON of the Loyal American Regiment, and Major John ALDINGTON of New Jersey.

The muster rolls below were transcribed from Volume 1888 of the National Archives of Canada, RG 8, "C" Series microfilms. They cover a period in the regiment's history when it was under the command of Colonel Beverly ROBINSON.

Muster rolls unfortunately do not exist before October of 1778, so much information on the membership of the Guides & Pioneers has been lost.

For additional information on this regiment please see the Regimental History of the Guides and Pioneers.
