During and after the American War of Independence, many Loyalists (to the Crown) left the Colonies and lost their land permanently. Some went back to Mother England, most moved to Canada. They did not (or could not) claim land in the United States as British Territory after the fact.
Displacement is a fact of life. Usually leads to Replacement.
