Bay of Quinte Branch

of the

United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada

Welcome!Here you will find information on our branch, our UEL ancestors, our history, and our area.

Plus, you will find a growing number of links to other UEL and relevant genealogy and history sites (there are many...). And, by going to the Dominion UEL site you can establish web and email contact with many of the other 28 UEL Branches in Canada.

You will find information on how to join our branch and become a member of the United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada. We are always looking for members and prospective members who wish to help with their ideas and efforts. All are welcome to attend our meetings and take part in our various activities.

Please consider attending our June 15th, 2002 Re-enactment of the June 1784 Loyalist Landing at Adolphustown (now the Canadian province of Ontario, then the western part of the British Colony of Quebec). This will be our fourth celebration of United Empire Loyalists' Day in Ontario, marking the 218th anniversary of the U. E. Loyalists' arrival on the Bay of Quinte.

See paintings and pictures and maps in our UEL Landing Gallery page.

Below, you will find links of particular relevance to the Bay of Quinte area, as well as contacts for our branch, meeting information, and a list of our Branch Presidents since our founding in 1956.

To support our activities, we sell Loyalist-era flags and various other Loyalist-related items. Go to our support page to see what we have to offer.
