Biography : Daniel Munro was probably born in Scotland about 1738 and died in Roseway, Shelburne, Nova Scotia on 20 Dec 1806. He married Mary Boyle before 1769 probably in New Jersey. Mary (Boyle) Munroe was born in New Jersey and died in Shelburne, Nova Scotia, after 23 March 1807 (date of letter to her Brother). Mary Boyle is the daughter of Solomon and Susannah Madelaine (Pelletreau) Boyle of Morris Town, New Jersey. Daniel Munro in his loyalist claim (that was denied) states that he farmed his land in Hoosick, Albany NY and had a loss of 187 pounds sterling. Daniel and his family may possibly have left Hoosick, NY after his land was confiscated and returned to New Jersey, living in Elizabeth Town. He is listed in the Tax Rateables for Elizabeth, Essex County New Jersey for the years 1779 and 1780.

In his loyalist claim, he states he is from Elizabeth Town. He also states that he was imprisoned more than a week for aiding the British. In June 1780 the British army had retreated back to Elizabeth Town. Daniel states in his deposition that in 1780 he "got into British lines and continued there in Government Service as a laboring man in the Wood and Forage yard". He joined with other Loyalists with what became known as the "Port Roseway Association" and was moved with his wife and family of four children to Roseway, Shelburne County, Nova Scotia in 1783. In Nova Scotia, he received 50 acres and a Town Lot. His occupation was listed as a carpenter when he arrived. In 1786 he calls himself a farmer when he applied for compensation for the loss of his farm in Hoosick. This claim was attested to by Evan Cameron, a long time friend. Later on, in 1791 in the Poll tax he is listed as a Mariner, in 1792, a Farmer and in 1794 he is found still living on the 50 acre grant, Lot 45.
