Richard Yeomans

M.A. Candidate
Colonial British North America, Loyalist History


B.A. History (Hon), University of New Brunswick


Richard graduated from the University of New Brunswick in October of 2015, completing his Bachelor of Arts with Honors in History. Throughout his first degree, Richard explored a variety of topics but his interests largely rest in late 18th century British North America, early Canadian studies and the development of the Atlantic region. Richard’s undergraduate work on the metanarratives of loyalism within the American Revolution have culminated into his future research on Loyalist opposition to violence as a mechanism of change within revolutionary British America. Richard is working under the supervision of Dr. Jane Errington.
