I agree with David and Ellen. The category British Colonial Loyalist is not accurate for a description of a loyalist during the American Revolutionary War.
Some clarifications are needed here:
During the American Revolutionary War, a "loyalist" or a "Tory" was anyone who lived in the Thirteen Colonies during the war and "sided with the British" - meaning they did not side with the Continental Congress. Now to clarify even further, if the Colonist was not on the side of the Continental Congress, they were automatically deemed to be a "Tory." This included those who were neutral, such as Quakers.
Those enlisted as soldiers with the British Army (British Regulars), or sailors with the British Navy, as well as Hessians, Brunswickers and Waldeckers were not considered loyalists. These men were all employed -paid- to do a job which was to fight against the Americans. They were career soldiers or sailors.
An American Loyalist was someone who lived in the Thirteen Colonies (didn't have to be born there) during the ARW, sided with the British during the ARW, and remained in the newly-formed United States of America after the war.
A United Empire Loyalist was someone who lived in the Thirteen Colonies before April 19, 1775; was loyal to the Crown - served in a militia or provided some other service during the war to the Crown; and moved to Canada during the ARW or shortly thereafter.
Lord Dorchester's proclamation clearly stated those whom were loyal to the Crown during the ARW and came to Canada were United Empire Loyalists - because of their loyalty to the unity of the empire. The Loyalist ancestor was the one who used the post-nominal U.E.L.
The descendants of the U.E.L use the post-nominal U.E.
This is the only hereditary title recognized in Canada, and why it should be allowed as a suffix on a WikiTree profile.
Mags, perhaps British North America Loyalist would be a better descriptor for a top level category.
