Denizations and Naturalizations in the British Colonies in America, 1607-1775
Loyd Bockstruck has compiled this comprehensive register of British denization and naturalization records between 1607 and 1775 from a large body of published literature, then expanded and improved on the information by examining original source material not previously available to scholars. For the more than 13,000 persons listed in this invaluable work, some or all of the following information is given; place and date of naturalization or denization; names of spouse and children, as well as where or when they were naturalized or endenized; country of origin; religion; length of time in the colony; location of current residence; occupation ; and any alternate names found in the records.

This is more of a correction than a review... James Irby, whom Bockstruck omits as outlined in his introduction, was, in fact, a soldier in Clark's regiment. This is supported by numerous documents available in the Library of Virginia's archives. James died while under Clark's command and is memorialized on the veteran's wall in his native Pittsylvania County, Virginia.
