  • Notes 
    • Isaac was included in the 1779 tax list of Livingston, New York (now Canaan, New York) for real estate valued at 66 pounds & taxed at 3 shillings 6 pence. The 1779 tax list of Livingston also includes two of his sons, Samuel Salls & Hix Salls. Under the name Isaac Searls, he was in the 1779 tax list of Kings District, New York, for real estate valued at 55 pounds & personal property valued at 28 pounds to make a total tax of 16 shillings 12 pence. The 1779 tax list of Kings District also includes his sons, Samuel Searls, Abraham Searls & Hix Searls. (A copy of both tax lists are in the New York State Library at Albany, New York.)
      Isaac, being a loyalist, was forced to leave his home in Long Island, New York in 1781 when the American Authorities confiscated his farm & all of the property that he could not carry with him. He sought the protection of the British Government & set his face towards the British Province of Lower Canada. Isaac was accompanied by his wife, son Jacob, Jacob's wife, Rebecca, Jacob's Daughter Phoebe, & Jacob's Son, George, who was born during the journey.
      At Skenesborough (now Whitehall, New York) at the head of Lake Champlain, the party embarked on the British sloop of war, the Maria, commanded by Commodore Steel, & landed at Ash Island in the Richelieu River on June 1, 1782. Under the guidance of friendly Indians they made their way five miles east to settle at the place that is now the village of Clarenceville, Quebec, Canada. Isaac's residence was on the spot occupied by Clark's Hotel in 1850 & by the Dussault Brothers store in 1972.
      Around 1784 two of Isaac's sons, Hix & Abraham Salls, who had settled & married in a vicinity east of Albany, New York came with their families to join the infant settlement. The phrase East of Albany refers to the vicinity of Canaan & New Lebanon, New York, where Isaac's son, Samuel, had established a homestead on a country road that is known as Salls Road.
      Other areas said to be temporary homes of Isaac & Hix are Mt. Hooker, Vermont (Rutland District) & Counter Hook, Vermont (Vergennes County).
