* The discrepancy between this total and the "360 persons" noted in the manifest header may perhaps be explained by the erroneous inclusion of a woman (presumably wife) with Alexander Sharp, above. The listing of Major Ward's group of refugees at New York, prior to embarkation, shows Alexander Sharp (in the list above) without wife or family, and no record has been yet found of a marriage previous to his c1785 wedding to Hester Campbell in New Brunswick.
