Give a brief description of the inhabitant. The man. The legend. Do we know any significant details about these guys? If yes, great! Include that here. If not, then this can just be ignored.
D-22 (100 acres, 8 Jul 1790)
Philip Fry. Origin: Unknown
According to Sandra Riley. Philip Fry was a soldier and laborer who received a grant on Abaco, Little Guana Cay, in 1789. He was granted 100 acres in the Pettys area of Long Island on 8 July 1790; this land was bounded by the land of George Calveras, William Simms, and the sea on two sides. His land was later commuted to Arthur Newman. Appendix E of Homeward Bound lists his loyalty as “unproven.” As we were unable to locate his full name or last name in documents of the Bahamas before 1780, we suspect he was a Loyalist, but neither could we identify his name in Loyalist records.
