*Excluding Martin Plieser who was apparently living 3/25/1765. 

Notes:
1. Based on (a) the Committee report, (b) newspaper records showing
180 arrived on Union, 140 on Dragon, and (c) the Revill lists.
2. Based on land grant data and the Revill lists. Where family size was insufficient to justify the acreage allotment, a child under two years was assumed, since these were entitled to fifty acres, but were not entitled to a bounty payment and so were not shown on the Revill lists.

Calculations based on the Committee report:

Union: 141 full passengers, 181 persons; 459.63 L @ 3.16 L each.
141 x 3.16 = 445.56 L.  14.07 L extra charges.
Distribution = 101 over 14, 80 under 14.
Dragon: 160 persons, 442.24 L @ 3.16 L each.
(442.24-14.07)/3.16 = 135.5 full passengers.
Distribution = 111 over 14, 49 under 14.
Planters Adventure: 33 persons, 31.5 full passengers.
Distribution = 30 over 14, 3 under 14. 
GAR. 7/28/87
