1911 Census

Boswalis (Boswarlos)

1911 Nfld Census records; District of St. Georges; Enumerator: William Dollard. Date submitted: 30 Nov 1911 * = Immigrated; ** = naturalizion
Courtesy is extended to Mr. David Messervey, a relative of Rev. E.A. Butler, who is credited with the safe storage of the original records. Mr. Messervey allowed his copy of the census records to be copied for the purpose of transcribing them and posting them to the NL GenWeb site. With the help of a fellow researcher in Fort McMurray and her sister in law, Theresa Samsone (nee Young), the copies were made and delivered to me here in Fort McMurray. The census was read, recorded and transcribed by LAVERNE (PERRIER) CORMIER, September 2000. While I have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there may be typographical errors.

Schubb Family name, Schubb, should be Chubb. They are my Great Grandfather and my grandfather.(Thomas and Jonathan). The whole list of Schubb should be changed to Chubb. Lyndon Chubb
Boswalis Boswarlos. The community was named by my great grandfather, Andrew Harvey, after the farm in Cornwall England, where his wife Honour (Tregear) grew up. Somehow, the last "o" and "a" were reversed in the Newfoundland community. The farm in Cornwall is named Bosworlas, which is Cornish for Bos = "home", wor = "with", las= drink of lichen. It is reported that the Tregears were some of the "Pirates of Penzance", and when we visited there in 1969, heard several interesting stories of those days at that farm. I do have a picture of the name on the original farm spelled Bosworlas. Doug Harvey
