There is a Loyalist Bridget Lunney from Montreal that tries to apply for Loyalist status after the death of her husband Hugh Lunney from Montreal. Apparently, he died in Hospital in Ireland but she moved with her family first to Montreal and then into Ontario apparently near Toronto.
A loyalist application shows up and is denied yet again for Hugh Lunney Township of Maryborough lawfully discharged, British Forces with active service and dated 25 May 1802.
The reason for denial was either he received land elsewhere or was denied access because he didn't fight on American Soil during the revolution. On the refusal it states that the Applicant should have applied while he was still alive.
I'm finding that there was an Irish Unit that fought during the American Revolution on a series of small islands south of the U.S. Mainland that was captured by the Americans during the revolution. These Irish guards of the 84th Reg. appear to be denied loyalist rights on this ground they didn't fight on the continent during the war.
Another group which I think might connect to mine on the same document lists a John Lunney with three sons Edward, Samuel and William Lunney also denied same reason. The page also references the 84th Regiment apparently the 84th Royal Highland Emigrants. William is later given status as a result of his marriage to a Loyalist bride and apparently settles in Hope Township, Durham County. I loose the other two listed brothers. Williams original application appears even earlier if the same one dated 5 Jan 1798
William Lowny (Lunney) Praying for lands as a son of a Loyalist later granted husband of Eleanor d/o of U.E.L. Loyalist but no maiden name for Eleanor given.
Hugh Lunney appears to be Protestant his wife Bridget Roman Catholic based on what I've been able to find out. The name continues with apparently family members near Ottawa and possibly near Balfour Park, Toronto, Ontario.
