BOSTON FIRE SUFFERERS, 1760

Four hundred and thirty-nine inhabitants of Boston, New England, petitioned the Mouse of Commons in England to compensate them for their losses during the great fire of 1760. The petition was sent by the house to the Lords of the Treasury in London (PRO: T1/412) where it was endorsed; "React February 1761. My Lords think it not proper to consent."
The Bostonians say In their appeal that "on 21) March last a most terrible fire, exceeding any that ever before happened in the American Colonies, broke out in the heart of Boston at two in the morning which, increased by the wind blowing from the North West and the flames of many wooden buildings raged with irresistible violence carrying alt before it, and widening in its progress, proceeded with such a rapid course to the water's edge that the houses and other buildings of your petitioners were reduced to ashes, and sane of your petitioners from affluent, and others from easy, circumstances, to great straits and indigence." The claimants say they were received with the greatest humanity by their fellow citizens but the financial burden on the town became unbearable since Boston "for many years past has bore more than other colonists in consequence of greater exertion to prevent French encroachments and to prosecute the war.
