Search the Bounty Rewards Archive

Land grants were authorized to individuals and to groups who petitioned the colonial government for large tracts to found settler towns and cities in the Dawnland (later rebranded as New England). In this bounty rewards archive we present evidence about land and cash bounties granted to people who participated in and/or profited from scalping, killing, and/or capturing Indigenous peoples. Use the search box below to search for town names, names of killers, captors, claimants, heirs, militia and soldiers, or by the year of the attack.

Due to limitations of archival records from this time period, we cannot say with certainty in all cases which individuals scalped and which individuals only supported or profited from the violence. Wherever possible, specific information, citations and sources are included in the Award Note and Source fields.
