Herkimer's Batteau Company
The pickup truck of the American Revolution, bateaux are uniquely linked to the Loyalists of the Bay of Quinte, their movements during the war and their settlement of what became the Province of Ontario. In lists of Loyalist military units can be found references to Harkimer's Batteau Company (used as transport during St. Leger’s expedition), Van Alstine's Batteau Company (used as transport of wounded after Saratoga) and the Royal Bateaux Volunteers.
Herkimer’s Batteau Company refers to Capt. Hanyost Herchermer who settled at Herchemer’s Nose (now Lemoine’s Point) in Kingston Township.
