Hello~

In the book by JF Pringle, "The Old United Empire Loyalists List," the following is written in Appendix B. (p. 238) about my g-g-g-g-grandfather, RICHARD PRENTICE:

"E. District, 1785 - Called Loyalist by G. Hamilton, 100. A.Mc.L. a Blacksmith. Stamped Book."

Am I correct in assuming that he lived in the Old Eastern District (I am positive this is in Charlottenburgh, based on land records for his older brother, Daniel Prentice) as of 1785? And that he was called Loyalist by Governor Hamilton? That he was granted 100 acres? I can't find what the abbreviation A.Mc.L. stands for. Could somebody please tell me? Also, I'm not sure exactly which "book" was "stamped." I'd truly appreciate any help you could give me. Thank so much.

Sincerely,
Jan Mongoven
