Three Black Loyalist men who wrote and published their life
stories came to Nova Scotia, then emigrated to Sierra Leone.
Their writings provide a rich source of information about the
Black Loyalist experience. Boston King was born near Dorchester,
South Carolina, in 1760, came on the ship L'Abondance to Shelburne,
and became a Methodist minister. David George was a slave at
Silver Bluff, South Carolina. He helped bring the Baptist faith
to Nova Scotia. John Marrant, a free-born Black from South Carolina
and New York, came to Nova Scotia from England as a Methodist
missionary preacher, so his name does not appear in the Book
