Loyalist: The Honorable Daniel Bliss (#410) is associated with Concord, Massachusetts and Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. Born in 1739/40, the son of Daniel Bliss and Phebe Walker and brother of Loyalist Samuel. Daniel graduated from Yale College in 1760 and began practicing law in Rutland, Massachusetts. In his attorney’s oath, Daniel had sworn allegiance to King George and thought it would be perjury to oppose the King’s authority. In March 1775, he entertained British officers in his home and was accused of harboring spies. Daniel was proscribed by the Act of Massachusetts of 1778 and joined the British Army. He held the rank of Colonel and was stationed at Quebec. After the war, he removed to Fredericton, New Brunswick where he later became Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas. Following the war, Daniel visited the United States repeatedly, wanting to return to his native land, but the government prohibited his doing so.
