An Act passed in 1839 allowed for the distressed soldiers or their widows to apply for a pension of ten pounds per annum. There were two major types of records resulting from this pension process: petitions and schedules of payments. The petitions contain much detail on the history and life of the old soldiers or their widows because applicants were required to relate how long they had been in New Brunswick, their economic condition, military service and, in the case of the widows, when and where they married the soldier. All documents concerning the old Revolutionary Soldiers were identified, scanned (3000 images), and indexed for this project.
