1830 "Petition TO HIS EXCELLENCY SIR THOMAS JOHN COCHRANE KNIGHT GOVERNOR AND COMMANDER- IN- CHIEF IN AND OVER THE ISLAND OF NEWFOUNDLAND AND ITS DEPENDENCIES & & & THE HUMBLE PETITION of the distressed Planters and Fishermen of BONAVISTA and BIRD ISLAND COVE. HEREWITH THAT the unprecedented failure of the Fishery has involved your Petitioners in circumstances of great distress and deprived therefore of all expectation of winter supplies from their respective Merchants. THAT on an enquiry instituted for the purpose of ascertaining the actual condition of the inhabitants of Bonavista and Bird Island Cove it was found that a large proportion of them are totally destitute of [?] food except the Potatoes produced in their own Gardens. THAT in five hundred and eighty seven ascertain Cases the quantity of Potatoes when dug is estimated at an average of only about three barrels and one eighth of a barrel for each individual. THAT the Stores of Bonavista do not contain any Provisions to meet the wants of the Population. THAT your Petitioners cannot calculate upon anything being brought for their relief until the Month of June next. THAT their stock of Potatoes is exhausted which will be early in the Winter Starvation must be the inevitable consequence.

Your Petitioners therefore HUMBLY PRAY that YOUR EXCELLENCY will be pleased to take the above facts into YOUR compassionate consideration and afford them such assistance as in YOUR EXCELLENCY'S judgement may seem expedient and their exigencies require.

AND your PETITIONERS as in Duty bound shall ever PRAY.

Jan. 3,1831 "THE MASTER-CARPENTER WAS JEAN VINCENT, JERSIEN, THAT OPERATED A MARINE SHIPYARD ON THE ACTUAL PROPERTY OF W.S. LOGGIE. IN HIS COMPLETE NAME JEAN-ADOLPHE-FREDERIC VINCENT, THIS MASTER-CARPENTER SEEMS TO HAVE WORKED FOR THE COMPANY OF ROBIN OF PASBEDIAC, WHO HAS NAMED ONE OF THEIR SHIPS "THE VINCENT" IN HIS HONOR. ( FROM THE NOTARY BATHURST 1-611 NO. 579)

  "(translated from French) the only Jersien of this name is JEAN-ADOLPHE-FREDERIC VINCENT , known under the name of Jean Vincent, seems to have come to Shippagan as constructor of ships and manager of enterprises for PETER JOHN DUVAL. He was certainly at Shippagan the 3 jan. 1831, because he gave a receipt to ANTOINE LANDRY

July 13, 1830 Charles Batson (cooper) married Maria Knight, eldest daughter of Thomas Knight; married by Rev. Carrington. (Paper date July 13, 1830.) Barbara Pederson as told by Queen Milley

ca 1830 "In the early 1830s, about 110 years ago, there came to the Island the next family, that of John Campbell from St. John's, who settled on what is now known as Campbell's Point. It seems that a certain Mr. Knight of St. John's was a trader around this section of Notre Dame Bay at that time, and also had schooners built at Halls Bay. He told John Campbell of the fish and game here, and finally persuaded him to migrate North. This man Campbell had a great influence on the early life of the community and played a prominent part in all the improvements that came with the influx of population twenty or thirty years later." And further on, same reference: "The first settlers of Little Bay Islands, the Campbells, (110 years ago) got their supplies from a man Knight of St. John's, who has been mentioned before under the section about the history of our people. He sent a trader around the Bay each summer supplying the people who were not in contact with merchants of other places." "Little Bay Islands U.C. School Magazine 1942" Barbara Pederson

" Hi Allen Thank you for your last two e mail notes. I am pretty lax in checking the E mail. your last one sent 15 mar. I never checked mon. and tue. was off wed and thur. just happened to check now and there is one for me. you are doing more for me than I am doing for myself. This no doubt is a connection. my problem is that I don't know the name for sure of grandfather white's grandfather ( the one who raised him as a son). I recall a man named Jack Adams joking with grandfather white about living as long as old uncle jimmy who lived to be 95 or something like that. as you know in NFLD we called every senior aunt or uncle. So I know there was a James White in there. if you will look at that 1921 Bulley's cove census you will see Elias white born 1875 I think and Arthur White my grandfather listed as born jan 1877(though he didn't have a birth certificate he said his birthdate was jan 24 1878, and that was the age he went by) Elias white was actually grandfather's uncle, his mother's brother. by the way uncle Elias's wife aunt Alice was a Knight from jacksons cove. I still have pair of socks that she knit around 1960 time. Grandfather's mother's name was Mary ann I believe and she never married I heard my mother say. I didn't know much of this until I was older and my grandfather was dead, and too late to get the names, he used to tell lots of stories about growing up and things that were done but I never heard about a father only his grandfather, apparently he was thirteen or fourteen before he knew that the one he thought was his father was actually his grandfather. My father's stepmother I recall saying to me (trying to be insulting I think) uncle Arthur he's an old syri, I was a boy and I did'nt get the point, I didn't know what she was talking about. years later when I learned about the background then I could see what she meant. Another old great aunt told me that gfather white's father was a syrian Jew. On looking through all of the names in that Notre dame bay 1921 census I find no one listed as jewish but I do find a few names listed with place of birth assyria, Lebanon which was a part of Syria, but the religion is listed as RC. I know it was not popular to be a Jew in those days and its not unlikely that a change of religion to Catholic or to state such would certainly be the expedient thing to do. I don't know if a jew would even be allowed into NFLD then, it was not until the 1830s I think before they had any legal rights in England. Its possible that my g grandfather was a Syrian Jew or just Lebanese. The name is lost to us and I know of no way to recover it. By the way Allen while reading through some of your material I came across a Temple William Knight who in june 1890 married Priscilla Smith. Priscilla Smith was the daughter of Joseph Smith, the Joseph Smith that married Amelia Bridger my g grandmother and the widow of James Bridger who drowned with Temple Knight. Priscilla Smith must have been widowed quite young, because she married Esau Burt of Kings Point later, her first son Joseph was born apr 1897, Bill and Frank in 1901 and 1903 respectively. I knew uncle Esau and remember him well I grew up with his grandsons, and my youngest brother is married to the g granddaughter of Esau Burt and Priscilla Smith, one of her names is also Priscilla. Unless there was another Priscilla Smith, and that I doubt because that was the only Smiths in Southwest Arm (King's Point Bulley's Cove) Still the only ones. I guess you can see what I am thinking, is it possible that the Temple Knight that drowned with James Bridger was the young son in law of Joseph Smith, who pays his respects to the also grieving widow and a practical relationship develops, him being a widower or becomes one in the interval. has a son born nov 1902.Joseph Smith was then 54 and G grandmother 43. against that theory is that the Temple Knight that was your G grandfather was the same generation as G grandfather Bridger, and also as you have confirmed that your G grandfather did drown. If there was any connection between the Temple Knight that drowned with J bridger and grandfather Smith(thats what dad refered to him as) its odd that I never heard mention of it, at a time when these yarns and storys and all the rest got told over and over. I hesitated to refer to that point with you again but an incorrect assumption based on wrong information is worthless, if we're not based on fact its all worthless. anyway I had better quit, thanks for your continued digging on my behalf, maybe i'll be able to contribute something somewhere along the line, lets keep in touch.

1832 "KNIGHT, MICHAEL THOMAS (1832-1916). Politician; civil servant. Born St. John's, son of Thomas Knight. Knight began his working life as a clerk with the firm of P. Rogerson and Son. Well connected politically -- his father was Conservative MHA for Twillingate and Fogo from 1855 to 1869 and Michael Knight married a daughter of Old Perlican merchant Stephen March -- in 1864 he was appointed the first customs collector for the Labrador coast. He retained that position until 1876, when the position was abolished and Knight was appointed bookkeeper of the Board of Works. In 1882 he first stood for election to the House of Assembly, unsuccessfully, in Baie de Verde. He was elected in 1885 in Twillingate as a supporter of the Reform party of Robert Thorburn, but was again defeated in 1889 before being re-elected as a Conservative in 1893. Knight was Surveyor General in the short-lived administration of A.F. Goodridge in 1894, but was again defeated in Bay de Verde in [?]. He was finally successful in this district in 1900 as a supporter of the Liberal party. Knight retired [from?] active politics shortly thereafter, to become [deputy?] minister of Public Works. H.Y.

 1832 "The Tale of the Greenspond letter"

Michael T. Knight (1832-1916), a native of St. John's. was a career civil servant who also had a political career. Today we know him best for his role in a scandal involving the notorious Alfred B. Morine, the always controversial politician introduced in last week's column. First, some background on Knight. In 1864 he was working as a clerk at Rogerson & Co. where he was appointed as the first customs' collector for the coast of Labrador. His father, Thomas Knight, was a member of the House of Assembly for Twillingate and Fogo, and as such may have played a small part in his son's good fortune. Knight junior held the post until 1876, when it was abolished. He then joined the civil service as secretary-bookkeeper of the Board of Works.

In 1882 he made his first attempt at seeking elected office when he became a candidate running on William Whiteway's platform in the district of Bay de Verde. It was a natural choice of party as Whiteway had for many years been Knight's father's running mate in Twillingate and Fogo. He was defeated, but not discouraged; in 1885 he was elected as one of the members for Twillingate... Shortly after the election Prime Minister Thorburn appointed Knight to cabinet as financial secretary.

-----------------

**{Then it goes on about his political career up to the 1900s, when he retired in 1904 to become deputy minister of public works, followed by the episode of a case which involved Morine - }continued: **What Knight did to make Morine so upset, even vindictive, against him is not known, but Morine's attempt to discredit Knight is nothing short of criminal."

"Greenspond is situated on an island in the northern part of Morine's Bonavista Bay district. A long-settled and prosperous community, because of its strategic location, it became a major distribution and collection centre for the communities which were established in Notre Dame Bay and points west during the 19th century. It was pften referred to as the capital of the north. On Dec. 30, 1887, Morine wrote to one of his supporters in Greenspond, a man named White. The letter begins innocently enough with Morine commiserating with White about the difficulties in procuring foodstuffs for the area, and makes a half-hearted promise to attempt to get flour to be shipped down the coast.But then Morine gets down to business. He writes, "I want you to do a particular and important job for me. I understand that J.C. [a young Greenspond woman], now in Greenspond sick with a venereal disease, stated to her doctor here [in St. John's], and to others also, that M.T. Knight, the Financial secretary, was one of the men who had connection with her. I want you to interview her, and to induce her, by threats or bribes, to swear to the truth regarding her relationships with Knight. If she will make a deposition before you in the statutory form, I will force Knight to resign forthwith, and his resignation will kill the government. You will see how important this matter is, and all the vast consequences which may result from it; and you will not fail, please, to send me a deposition by return mail. Youi may promise J. a passage to Nova Scotia next year, which I will will obtain for her, or anything else reasonable, for the unmasking of the hypocrite I am after is a sacred duty. by Bert Riggs, who is "an archivist with the Centre for Newfoundland Studies at Memorial University".

DREADFULL SHIPWRECK: H.M.S. "Whiggery", Captain MELBOURNE, originally built to replace the "Wellington", was built about four years ago, upon a new and reformed principle, of teak timber, with pewter bolts. The first voyage was made under Captain CHARLES GREY. She was overhauled in St. S~ephen's harbor under the direction of a strongly-opinioned surveyor, J.G. LAMBTON, who gave his directions through the medium of the most efficient seaman in the ship, JOHN RUSSELL,. On the second voyage, LAMBTON was replaced by a good natured but somewhat inefficient workman named ROBINSON. Due to the wrong-headed confidence of the pilot, a foreigner, TEMPLE, and the unskillfulness of the Captain, the ship struck more than once on rocks and shoals. Lt. JAMES GRAHAM, LENNOX & STANLEY, resigned and gave up their commission, accompanied by surveyor ROBINSON. One HOWARD, an old and worn friend of the Captain, also left. CAPTAIN GREY, put into Windsor Creek and replaced the Officers by SPRING RICE, a little Irish affidavit maker, and another Irishman, PONSONBY, and a worn out mate named EDEN, and a carpeuter named HOBHOUSE. Off the coast of Ireland, LITTLETON, an Irish Midshipman, with ALTHORP, the purser, and BROUGHAM, the clerk and Schoolmaster, attempted to deceive the Captain who threw up the command. The Purser's Father died, so he feft to thus tend the Bookstore, near Spencer's Head. The "Whiggery" floundered unexpectedly and went down. In addition to the Officers named, there perished also JOHN RUSSELL,, Powder monkey; G. GRANT, Chaplain; P. THOMSON, Slop Seller; CAMPBELL, a Squabber and ROLFE, a lob lolly boy who joined a few days before. Captain MELBOURNE was taken up most exhausted. BROUGHAM was seen floundering and believed drowned. An old hat marked B. KER has been picked up and a waist coat of many colours, with BOWRING marked on it. Amongst the names filed, the sufferers are TORRENS, EASTHOPE, GROTE & C. WOOD. Excerpt.

Within a tew years of the coming of Mr. Matthews, it became known that

there was a good winter fishery here and a fall catch of large fat

herring for which there was a demand in the United States. This winter

fishery attracted others to come West. The first of these newcomers were

the Colliers, Dicks, and Vatchers, who came from Lamaline. As far as I

can gather this would be in about 1830. These three families married

their sons into the Matthews family. There were a goodly number of

Matthews daughters for this purpose. The servant men, from England, who

came out to serve, either as fishermen's helpers or as workers in

various business houses, either found their wives among these early

Burgeo settlers or at nearby places.

 

At this time, 1835, there were living at West Burgeo the following

families: John Anderson, Frederick Cox, Thomas Anderson, John B. Cox

moved on west to Lapoile and West Point.

 

These included Fred Cox, Samuel Cox, Robert Rose, Jonathan Rose, Francis

Mauger). Frederick Cox was appointed Stipendiary Magistrate for Channel

in or about 1875. He died there, say five years later.

 

The population during the 1850s was increasing fast by immigration from

Hermitage Bay. Many of them settled at Hunt's Island and Our Harbour.

 

This is an excert from Small's Diary of Burgeo B. Crant <crant@ns.sympatico.ca

1835 "John Cox was a merchant from St. John's who set up a business in Burgeo in 1835. At that time "there were 23 families at Burgeo". Some surnames listed were: "Anderson, Matthews, Strickland, Cox, Skeard, Dicks, Cheveilier..."Decks Awash" Sept./Oct. 1984: Article on Burgeo, on Nfld.'s south coast: Barbara Pederson

1835 CHANCE COVE (Population in 1991 - 435

The town of Chance Cove, which is located on the west side of Trinity Bay, is on a road that turns north off Route 201 about four kilometres from Route 1. Chance Cove consists of two adjoining coves, Big Chance Cove and Little Chance Cove. In the early 1800s they were known as Great Chance Cove and Lower Chance Cove respectively. Although the original inhabitants who went there in the early 1800s settled in both coves, the community now is situated only in Little Chance Cove.

Some of the men living in the community with their families in 1835 were John Peddle, James Bryant, Thomas and Benjamin Smith and George Temple. All of them except John Peddle lived in Big Chance Cove. Since the community was close to good cod and salmon fishing areas, it soon attracted more people. By 1869, families named Andrews, Hutchings, Linch, Liven, McCarthy, Noseworthy and Rowe had moved there from other communities in Trinity Bay. By 1911 the population had reached one hundred and ninety-five. Although the fishery remained the backbone of the community’s economy, several small sawmills were started there in the early 1900s. The origin of the community’s name is a mystery. It has been suggested that it was called Chance Cove, after a ship had run aground in one of the coves by mischance. It is just as likely that the name reflected a more positive incident, such as a ship finding safety in one of the coves by chance during a storm. In any case, there is every reason to believe that some kind of luck, good or bad, played a role in the origin of the name. http://www.wp.com/JR/

1800's In reply to your request for info on Temples who came to Newfoundland: Canon Robert Temple came from Coventry or Norfolk in the early 1800's. His brother, William, went to St. Pierre where he was a schoolteacher. Canon Robert married a Vincent from Suffolk. they settled in Twillingate. He died in Sandy Point where he had spent his last years with his daughter and her family and he was buried in Twillingate. Hope this is of some help to you in your research.

 1835 "Four families were living in winter tilts around the head of Bull Arm in 1835. According to a 1869 census report, which was the first report that listed the community, twenty-eight persons were living there that year. Fifteen years later a census report divided the community into two areas - the Bottom and Centre Cove. The Bottom had twenty-two residents and the Cove had twelve. A Snook family from Old Perlican and a Lilly family from Harbour Grace were two of the first families to settle at Centre Cove. Families by the name of Hutchings and Smith moved to the community from Chance Cove about the same time. About 1889 two men named Parsons and Peddle and their families went to Sunnyside and set up a sawmill. Some of the families who were already there then were the Bensons, Coshs, Drovers and Temples. By 1900 the community had two hundred and forty-one residents. The early economy depended on the fishery and the lumber business." http://members.home.net/j1-religa/ John Religa

I have just returned from Newfoundland and I did write down quite a few Mills names while I was there since I can't seem to link up my ggrandmother Lucy Mills, born 1838, with anyone!!!! Sometime though, something has to click!!! I am now in the process of sorting out what I have. I did do a quick scan for the names you sent and I also found the marriage of Eliza Mills and Thomas Knight. A witness at the wedding was William Mills. I recorded this info from the DPHW records on microfilm. The Critch, Mills and Knight family names are all found in the Moreton's Hr area so it could well be possible that we link up there somewhere along the way.

PETITION OF THE INHABITANTS OF CARBONEAR to avert the contemplated

dismissal

of Mr. GADEN from Office. We feel that Mr. GADEN's request for a raise

in

salary, by means which may be objectionable, is not sufficient ground

for

dismissal. His net income after paying rent, servant's wages and fuel

amounted to only about 60 pds.

. While driving home from work I was thinking about the story of our great grandfathers and it came back to me what they were doing when this tragedy happened. They were on their way down to Tilt Cove where they worked in the mine. I don't know if you are familiar with the geography of the area or not if you have a road map of NFLD you could look it up.(If you want one I can send you one). Some of these towns listed as places of birth in the early census info are now no more, just grown over with bush as if no one was ever there. I go to NFLD every summer, I left to serve in the RCAF in 1956, been on the government payroll ever since. Still enjoy going back. My great grandfather James George Thomas came to NFLD from St. Hilliers in Jersey, married a nfld girl Rachael Richmond (raised by Burtons) so I was never sure whether she was a Richmond or a Burton. Her so G uncle Charlie Thomas told me she was Richmond whose mother fell down through the flake(platform for drying fish) hit her head and died and a Burton family raised Rachael. I don't know anything else about her side at all. I correspond with a first cousin of my grandfather(a lady who is now 97 in Jersey. Some years ago she told me that my great grandfather was not born in jersey but in Ringwood, Hampshire eng. his father James Thomas and wife Emily(nee Brewer) moved to Jersey with some children(I don't know how many of his other children were born in Jersey). Thats as far back as I have got. I have talked with people familiar with the Hampshire area and tell me that it should not be too hard to research if you had time to visit or have someone check it all out. I suspect it would end up that they were originaly Welshmen who came from the mountains of Wales just 50 or 60 miles to the north. My interest in the Whites: My mothers father was Arthur White born at Indian Burrying Place(Burrying Place abbrv. BUPL on 1921 census for Notre Dame bay). You asked where that was. It is(was) on the north side of Green Bay (Jackson's Cove is on the south side) on the map you see Burlington, Smith's harbour, nippers harbour there was then Stocking harbour, Rogues harbour, Tilt Cove Betts cove Bobbys cove, Burrying Place. that order may not be correct but close. These communities were all fairly populous at one time. now most are no more. I noticed a couple days ago while looking at a net site that Betts Cove in the late 1800's had 2600 people, 3 churches but then the Mine closed and it went back to a few people. Back to the Whites. my grandfather Arthur White was raised by his grandfather James??? White. Grandfather was an illegitimate child I was told by an old great aunt some years ago that his father was a Syrian Jew and that the old man would not allow his daughter to marry this fellow fellow for religious reasons. I don't know how correct this is. there used to be pictures around but long lost now. not even names are recorded. When i was young I knew people who would have had this knowledge, but you didn't talk about such things then. While visiting home in 1960 a few months before my grandfather died he started to talk to me about some of it but I changed the subject. How stupid I was. later on when I got interested and wanted to know about these things, all the people who knew were either dead or their memories were failing and could no longer remember. So Grandfather White was not really grandfather White if things had run in the normal manner of paternity. I don't think baptisimal records survived. Grandfather used to be a lay reader in the Methodist church when he was younger man. Lloyd Thomas rcimnstn@ottawa.cbc.ca

1800's Re your jan 23 note. with regard to mining in the Green Bay during 1800s I understand there were several mines around the area, Tilt Cove, Betts Cove, King's Point I believe and Pilleys Island(a bit farther away), the basic occupation of the people was mostly fishermen but if there were mines around they were also miners and of course loggers, depending on the time of year. I bought a book down there last summer, its called moments in time and it has a brief history of a lot of communities in the green bay. its not very in depth but to make it so would require a book about foot thick. Another of my g grandfathers Thomas Noble of Smith's Harbour was a fisherman but also a miner (got his temple crushed while standing behind someone swinging a hammer while working in the mine at Little Bay in 1800s.) I would like to correct a couple of typos in my last note. I almost fell off my chair laughing when I reread it. when speaking of my G grandmother I wrote her g uncle told me, that should have read my g uncle(her son) told me. Also the first cousin twice removed that I have been corresponding with in Jersey is not 970 years old, she is only 97, in fact her neice now does the writing for her. I guess you should always proof read before sending. Most of the people coming to that area of nfld from UK in 1800s were not as I used to think coming blindly to an unknown place, they knew someone already there in many cases. as I looked at the history of Three Arms(not far from Jackson's Cove) I noticed it was a supply center for the area in mid 1800s, three of the names listed were from Ringwood Hamps. where I was told my g grandfather's family came from, so it was not unlikely that he was coming to an area that he or his family knew someone already there. by the way Welshman is and more so was a common name around Green bay. The character of the people is very much like that of the Welsh, the love of singing, the love of worship. With regard to your using any info that I give or have given you, no I don't mind as long as there is nothing personal in it, you know what I mean. I doubt I can give you anything useful anyway, you're away ahead of me. I don't know if the line we are pursuing re Temple Knight is your line, but I do know that the information I have given you re the fact that a Temple Knight and James Bridger drowned together is correct as I said on their way from Jackson's Cove to Tilt Cove. I have heard it too long and too often to be confused about it.so thats all for now bye. regards Lloyd Thomas rcimnstn@ottawa.cbc.ca

There were already two sawmills. Rowsell and Knight were the first to arrive as loggers in about 1850."

1852 "I was born in Newfoundland and now I'm tracing my roots on my father's side. My father's name was: Robert Vivian His father's name was: Joseph Vivian, Born about 1890 and died about 1926, Catalina, Trinity Bay, NFLD. I would like to know who Joseph's parents were and maybe even their parents. My father's mother was Mary Wiseman, Born 1893 and Died 1981 in Hare Bay, NFLD. Her father's name was John Wiseman, Born 1852 Greenspond and Died 1993 Her mother's name was Rachel Wilkins, Born 1856 Cobbler's Island, BB, NFLD, Died 1925 Greenspond. I have been told that we have Indian status and would like to know where it evolved from. Do you think it was on the Vivian side or the Wiseman side? If you have any information, would you please let me know how you can help me. Thanking you in advance. Boyd Vivian blvivian@rogers.com <blvivian@rogers.com> 905-987-3975

Dear Allen,

 

I have a library book here now about the early seal fishery called "Goin' to

the Ice", written by Michael Harrington, and one chapter is about "Uncle

Fred" Knight, "The Man from Moreton's Harbour". I checked your page and

Moreton Harbour Knights and don't see much about him so here's a little

more. At least it shows he didn't die before 1946.

 

"Moreton's Harbour on New World Island in Notre Dame Bay has a number of

claims to fame not the least of which was a fabulous fisherman named

Frederick Knight, 'Uncle Fred', who was born in 1853 and 'went to the ice'

for the first time in the Spring of 1875, in a steamer. Like most young

Newfoundland males, by the time he was 22 he had already made several trips

in sailing ships of various types, but 1875 was his introduction to the

famous 'wooden walls'. This is his story of that voyage as related in 1946

at the age of 93..."

It goes on to tell his story, a trip to the ice in the 505-ton "Eagle", under Captain Billy Knee. Haven't read it yet but there's nothing else of a genealogical nature. Just thought I'd send it along as I have it right here, was looking through it trying to find some ship. There's still nothing like a Knight to brighten the night. Barbara

Aug.29,1854 From my MURSELL Family Tree: Francis (Fanny) Mursell, daughter of William and Lydia Mursell, bapt. Aug. 29, 1854, Little Bay Islands, age 2 weeks; married Lemuel Knight. Their children: Ernest, Mary [?], and Henry. [That's all I have on them.]

 A letter I have dated Nov. 1986, says: "Aunt Fanny Knight was the youngest of the family and was a sister of Annie Mursell Strong. [My g-grandmother.] May and young Harry used to fight like young tigers. He as a boy had blond curly hair and was the same age as Rex*. They lived in St. John's and the oldest son was Ernest, then Mamie, later shortened to May. She later married a Milley. I never saw Ernest but Mamie used to visit at our house." [*Rex, born 1898, brother of the writer of the above letter.]

 In another letter, this one dated Sept. 4, 1943, from a relative stationed at that time in New Orleans, written to my great-uncle in Little Bay Islands from a nephew of Fanny: "Being so far away on the Pacific coast I've lost touch with all those who left home before or since I did. I've tried to locate Aunt Fanny Knight's people in New Jersey -- you know -- Harry Knight and May Milley. They used to live in I---ngton [unclear], New Jersey but have moved and left no trace..."

 In another letter, written by my g-grandfather in Little Bay Islands in 1935, to Chester J. Strong, a cousin of his in Cambridge, Mass., he says [typed as written; all his inquiries are about Strongs except for Miss May and the others]: "...I often think and spake of when I was at your Fathers home in 1916. He put me so much in mind of my own Father. It seemed like home. He resembled in aperance and maner so much. I think the oldine [only] thing I remember is when Uncle Fred and Uncle Samuel left Twillingate. I do not know how old I was but I remember their having a joyful time at our house the night before leaving. Do you know anything about Uncle Samuels family. Father left Twillingate and came here a few years after your Father and Uncle Samuel left for Canada or the States, and it seems the old people did less corresponding than their descendents. But Familys do get scattered and in some cases very seldom hear from each other. How is Miss May. Think I have heard her name oftener then I have others of your Family. When at your fathers in 1916 I remember meeting Mrs. George and your sister Mrs. Colbourne and her two Daughters. How are they all now. I thought then that Miss May would be Mrs. someone before now..."

 Towards the end of his leter he says: "Refering to your letter re seven children are these your own Family or do you mean Brothers and Sisters. Dont know that I have heard of only yourself and George and Miss May and Mrs. Colbourne..."

 I put in the extra text of the letter so you could get a better idea of the whole "picture". Looks like we might have to some serious investigating if we want to find these Knights-- I don't know a thing about this Miss May or Harry, except for the above references, and hope you can make a little sense out of it all. I hope to trace this "Cousin Chester" and the other Strongs mentioned here some day as I have nothing on them either, except they are brothers of my gg-grandfather.  Barbara > bpederso@terra.nlnet.nf.ca

Aug.29,1854 I was just going through some of my family information, another branch, the MURSELL side, and am wondering if I gave you anything on a Lemuel Knight who married Francis (Fanny) Mursell, bapt. Aug. 29, 1854, Little Bay Islands (not far from here); their children were Mary and Henry (I have no b. dates on them). one reference indicates that they lived in New Jersey at one time.

 1855 "About 1855 Rev. L. Noble's book "After Ice Bergs with a Painter" states the captain of their hired schooner on a cruise around Newfoundland was named "Knight". Dr. Cluny MacPherson says that this man was his "Uncle William Knight" who lived in Bannerman House on Circular Road. His uncle (or great-uncle) by a Duder or Pitts marriage. 3.

>>in the "Who's Who in and from Nfld. 1937" I have here. He was the son of

>>Another interesting note on this Haddon Tree which connects us with the

>named

>>Jess Knight Haddon (a female), and I have yet to find out where the Knight

I also discovered there was a Richard Knight in Bridport Devon in >the late 1700's. Scrolling back over the page, I discovered that a Revd J.H. Ashe was the minister there at the time.

I haven't placed that one yet. So far no one seems to have lost a daughter at that time. See the confusion? Now in Merton Devon in about 187- comes along a grandson with the surname of Knight living with the Ebsary family there. Jackie aband@email.msn.com

May 1, 1862 KNIGHT, STEPHEN, house burnt at Hall's Bay, Green Bay, and young woman named Ebsary perished, May 1, 1862. Mosdell's "When Was That?" beverly.warford@nf.sympatico.ca

Hi Barbara

>>Remember me - about the Ebsary girl who died in a fire in a Mr. Knight's

>>home.

>>The girl may have been named Selina Julia but I think that only because

>>she is the only Ebsary I have found so far, and I've found quite a few,

>>who survived infancy but died young.

What I have is that the Ebsary girl who died in the fire at Halls Bay was

>> Selina Julia, daughter of Captain William ane Belinda Pitts Ebsary, born

>> 1843. Since I last corresponded with you I had a long chat with my aunt

>> Vera Carnell, the last surviving child of my grandmother, Mary Bishop Ebsary

>> Carnell, and she confirms that it was Selina who died in that fire. She

>> remembers the story well althou not quite the same way in detail as I did

>> but the same in essence. She also told me that Selina was supposed to have

>> been very beautiful.

>> As to the Knight-Pitts-Ebsary connection, my information is that Captain

>> William (abt1808-1865) married Belinda Bartrum(?) Pitts (1816-1906),

>> daughter of James Pitts and Frances Bartlett. They would be my gg

>> grandparents.

>> Captain Thomas Ebsary (abt 1806-1863)married Mary Pitts (abt1820-aft 1871),

>> daughter of John Pitts and Elizabeth Picco.

>>John and James were brothers, sons of Joseph.

>> So Belinda and Mary were first cousins, not sisters.

>> Now it gets complicated.

>> Mary's younger sister Charlotte married William Knight, 01/13/1841.

>> Belinda's younger sister Caroline married Stephen Knight, 04/12/1858.

>> I'm not sure what if any was the relationship between the two Knights but I

>> imagine you do.

>> I have some other info on Pitts children, not much, but I would be happy to

>> send it if of interest.

>> Hope this is help.

>> Regards

>> Dave

1863 In my second voyage, I mean that of last year, I had the great gratification of finding candidates prepared for Confirmation in the region of White Bay and Canada Bay, on the eastern French Shore, so long unthought of and uncared for, but now blessed with the services of a zealous and faithful Missionary. The Rev. Mr. Temple presented to me candidates in both White Bay and Canada Bay, the firstfruits of, I trust, an abundant harvest. They were chiefly persons advanced in life, who thankfully embraced the first opportunity of being thus presented, thereby testifying their allegiance to the Church, and their desire to profit by her holy ordinances and means of grace. Mr. Temple also petitioned for the consecration of four graveyards, cleared and fenced by the people at his instigation and under his superintendence. http://www.mun.ca/cgi-bin/mfs/03/rels/hrollmann/ang/texts/ang6.html?147#mfs

1865 "The inevitable legal conflicts over claim boundaries and possession finally led [Newfoundland's surveyor general, John] Warren to hire extra assistants for the Notre Dame Bay district, one of whom was a retired sea captain named Robert G. Knight. Knight was 45 years old when he became a deputy surveyor and, by chance, discovered the Betts Cove ore body..."

"The Betts Cove mine lay 8 miles south of Tilt Cove and exemplified all that is romantic in mining. It turned men into milliionaires and was worked by a German baron before passing into oblivion 15 years after its discovery. Modern deputy surveyors, like other government employees, are strictly forbidden to use information gathered at public expense to further their private ends. In the 1860s, however, no such regulations restricted the initiative of Robert Knight. While pursuing his official work as deputy surveyor along the western shores of Notre Dame Bay, he obtained mining licences for copper deposits at Betts Cove in 1865, Nickeys Nose in 1868 and Burtons Pond in 1868. Higher government officers also indulged in extracurricular activities. When surveyor general John Warren heard of Knight's good fortune, he and other Liberal Members of the House of Assembly formed the Notre Dame Mining Company in 1869. At the same time, they persuaded Robert Knight to join them and to transfer his claims to the company. Rather than following Knight's suggestion of exploring the Betts Cove claim, the Notre Dame Mining Company chose in 1869 to work the far less promising Burtons Pond discovery. Even after the Burtons Pond mine failed in 1872, the company showed no interest in Betts Cove other than demanding that Knight forfeit his share in the claim in lieu of paying a debt that he owed company directors. Knight died in poverty on 18 January 1873, resentful to the end of his associates' behaviour."From "Once Upon a Mine" by Wendy Martin (1983): from Barbara Pederson Note (by Barbara Pederson): Four years after Robert Knight's death, in November 1876, the Notre Dame Mining Co. leased the Burtons Pond mine to Dr. Henry Eales of London, who in 1878 shipped 1500 tons of copper ore from the site to Swansea, Wales

Yes, this is all the same Jonathon, just moving around to find the fish. I have seen it many times where men are listed in different communities; in those days many fishermen travelled around and spent summers in different locations every year, and they would be recorded wherever they were at that time, which makes it seem they are different people when actualyl they were just fishing and residing at different places. The French Shore started at Cape John, just past Tilt Cove, and at one time went right up around the top northern Cape whatever and all down the west coast of Nfld. The French Shore where "our" men fished would be around Griguet and Conche, that area north of here. It was a good fishing area; the men often travelled long distances where they would stay for the summer. *A note of interest, up there marked with an asterisk: Jonathon Knight and Familo Pollard were married at Black Island. All those places are in the same area, (excpet for the French Shore), and many fishermen from all over the Island fished on the French Shore during the summer.

Curling also offered himself for missionaru work in Newfoundland and was ordained in 1973, working here until his return to England in 1900."

1876 "one of the old ledgers of my family's (now long-gone) fishery-supply business, started by my great-grandfather in the 1870s at Little Bay Islands, of Stephen Knight. The "Dr" stands for "debit" -- so I guess this means he was being charged for the following services. It reads:

Dr. [debit to] Stephen Knight

To Samuel Short For

Carrying a letter To Traitdoon 1-0-0

Order To Widow Wiseman 2 Glns. Molasses 3/3 6-6

  " " Geo Anstey 1-7-6

  " " Samuel Short 15 Glns. Molasses 3/ 2-5

  " " " " 50 lbs. Rock 1-12-6

"Traitdoon" is the old name for a community near here now called Triton. The currency was in pounds-shillings-pence, 20 shillings to the pound. (Looks like Widow Wiseman got gypped on her molasses...) Barbara Pederson

This is from "St. Peter's Anglican Church, Twillingate. One Hundred and

Twenty-five year History. 1845 - 1970". It's a small (5 x 8, 74 pages) book.

It says:

 

On page 20:

  "A gift of an electric lamp was donated for the organ in 1950 by W. B.

Temple, Esq., (son of the late Canon Temple) in memory of his wife who was

an organist for many years. The inscription reads -- "This lamp is to the

memory of Sarah Crosby Temple -- a former Organist." "

 

On pages 20 to 21:

  "Among the other organists who have given their services at the organ

are -- Miss Sarah Taylor, Miss Tucker, Miss G. Stirling, Mrs. Robert Temple

and daughter Carrie -- who afterwards became Mrs. E. A. Butler, Miss Sarah

Manuel (already mentioned as Mrs. W. B. Temple), daughter of the late

Obadiah Manuel, Mrs. Harry Peyton, the former Miss Hannah Pearce, Miss Eliza

Blandford (now Mrs. Edgar Sweetland), Miss Mary White (later Mrs. Thomas

Dawe), Miss Mildred R. Manuel, Mrs. A. H. Hodge, Mr. Wilson A. Manuel, Mr.

Frank Anstey, (over forty years as Organist), Mrs. Alfred Manuel, assisted

by Mrs. Donna Watkins."

 

On page 24:

  "In Snelling's Cove rest the bodies of Rev. Canon Robert Temple, and his

wife and daughter Nellie. Canon Temple was incumbent of St. Peter's from

1877 to 1905."

 

On page 26:

  "The Annual Flower Service

 

  "The Rev. Robert Temple (later Canon Temple) who was the Incumbent of

Twillingate Mission from 1877 to 1905, is remembered with affection by those

who had the privilege of knowing him, and who were baptized or married by

him.

 

  "His incumbency saw many changes and events in church life in

Twillingate, including the consecration of Snelling's Cove cemetery, the

enclosure of the Parsonage grounds by a substantial fence, the election of

the First Vestry in 1882, and his introduction of the Annual Flower Service,

1892, similar to that held in England."

 

I'm assuming that "Canon" in this context refers to a clergyman.

I have been busy at work and haven't been in on a weekend day when I can have a bit more time with my own stuff. anyway I have been looking over what you sent. The Mary Ann White interest me, I don't know if there is a connection between my great grandmother and that one, an aunt??. Grandfather White was born Jan 24th 1878 (1921 census says 1877)(In fact 121 years ago today). His mother's name was Mary Ann if I remember correctly what I was told. From what I remember from my mother she never married. Grandfather White would have been grandfather somebody else if things had taken their traditional course. Thats the missing link I would like to fill in, but my information is too sketchy and records too poor from that period it seems that it would probably be impossible to do. I haven't heard or seen any name that would be distinguishable as Syrian or Syrian Jewish (as I was told) that could be labled as a possible for paternity. I guess its best to leave the skeltons in the closet. ha. I guess things haven't changed much through the years. Between the Bridgers and the Whites and the knights and goodness knows who else we could be closer than we think. I wish I had taken the time when I was young to ask more questions, especially when my grandparents were alive. When I get retired I might be able to dig out some more info in nfld. Anyway Allen thanks for keeping me posted, I appreciate it. Best regards Lloyd rcimnstn@ottawa.cbc.ca

1879 A great revival broke out during the term of Rev. Thomas W. Atkinson who was appointed to Twillingate in 1879. Four hundred individuals professed conversion. This resulted in an additional Church being built on the North Side. It was completed in 1881, and included three galleries and a choir gallery with a pipe organ. Total seating was 500. It was commonly called "the Church on the Hill." The committee for the Church was made up of: Rev. T. W. Atkinson Peter Samways Frank Roberts Andrew Roberts James Wylds Thomas Linfield John Minty R.

Crosbie Hotel

Originally located at 173 Water Street, The Knight's House or Knight's Home was purchased by George Graham Crosbie qv from proprietor Samuel Knight in 1882. Renamed The Central Hotel by Crosbie, it operated from 1886 until it was destroyed by fire on July 8, 1892. The Trade Review (1901) reported that Crosbie promptly moved his guests into a large rented store on George Street while he negotiated for land on the site of the old Courier qv of fices on Duckworth Street adjacent to Victoria Street. The new hotel which was erected on the site, and opened in December 1894, became the Crosbie Hotel. Upon the death of George Crosbie in 1895 the hotel passed into the hands of Mrs. George G. Crosbie and his son John C. Crosbie qv.

Devine and O'Mara's City Directory for 1897 described the new Crosbie Hotel as the largest in the city. The hotel featured hot water, electricity and bathrooms on each floor. The hotel's cuisine was supplemented by John C. Crosbie's purchase of a farm on Logy Bay Road in the late 1890s. The farm produced vegetables and dairy products for the hotel. In 1900 the hotel was sold to Mrs. Crosbie's daughter, Mrs. S.K. Bell, who operated The Crosbie until 1937 when William Spurrell became manager with controlling interest in the hotel. Spurrell sold the hotel to John Murphy in 1965 who subsequently renamed it the Welcome Hotel. Two years later the Hotel was resold to Hotel Properties Limited owned by William Toytman. The property was operated by City Holdings Limited after 1979 and in 1980 remained one of St. John's oldest hotels still in operation.

June 13, 1896 Hi all, I am looking for information on JOSEPH ERNEST SELBY HUDSON, b.June 13 1896 in Newfoundland. He married NELLIE ELIZABETH BATES in Everett, MA on December 9th 1922. Joseph died on March 23 1967 and is buried in the Malvern/Melrose cemetery. His father was Joseph L. Hudson, his mother was Letia Moran, both from Newfoundland Any information about him or his parents would be greatly appreciated. Please e-mail direct to Harvey Bates bateshe@senet.com.au

Dec. 4, 1890 "I found a marriage record from Vernon BC for Frederick William Strong. He was born in Twillingate and his parents were George and Louisa Strong. He was 22 years old when he married, on December 4 1890, to Elizabeth Ann Brewster. They were living in Enderby BC at the time. I'm convinced this refers to Ralph Frederick William Strong. Cyril Wellington Strong wrote in his memoirs "My father, Ralph Frederick William Strong, was born at Twillingate, Newfoundland" ... and ... "My father had been married previously, in British Columbia, and was divorced." Allen, one of the witnesses appears to be "H.W. Knight".

1891 Over the weekend I was looking through one of my g-grandfather's notebooks (brought it to CBrook with me to read it over again in some of my abundant spare time) and you won't believe what I found in there, after looking at it a hundred times before. I wasn't going to tell you until I had it in detail tomorrow, but I can't help it now - he was on a business trip to St. John's (in 1891) and apparently paid a visit across to Western Bay, and guess what! He had Fanny Knight's name there on a list of his expenses. " Barbara Pederson

The three-storeyed, semi-detached stone dwelling with a brick facade was

built between 1854 and 1875. The structure is of note because of the early

use of masonry in the construction of a private residence. The five-sided

Scotch dormer is also an unusual feature of the home as is the two-storeyed

bay window in the front of the home.

Although no one knows the original owner of the home, Robert Wakeham did

own the land in 1843. In 1894 the house was registered to James and Mary

Knight. The twentieth century saw the house change hands often. In 1928

Florence Canning bought the house and in turn sold it to William Chafe in

1942. Chafe sold the house to Robert George Fahey in 1957. Antonia McGrath

bought the house in 1980 from Robert Fahey's widow, Mary Fahey, who worked

for many years at City Welfare.

 

The building was one of the few to survive the Great Fire of 1892. It did

not escape the blaze unscathed, and the interior of the structure had to be

rebuilt.

 

The building was made a Registered Heritage Structure by the Heritage

Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador in April 1992.

The Jessie's Trip of 1902 Contributed by John Holwell

The original source of the following account is uncertain however I strongly suspect it was from the Twillingate Sun. This text is a duplication of an earlier transcribed version.

WRECKED MARINER'S RETURN

Crews of the Jessie and Pioneer arrived by the Glencoe After being absent for nearly two months, a considerable part of which time they suffered the severest hardships at sea, the crews of the wrecked schooners, Jessie and Pioneer arrived here by the S.S. Glencoe at 8:30 p.m. on Thursday last. There were a large number of friends and others at the dock to welcome them home, and as the steamer reached th pier they hurried on board to exchange greetings with the shipwrecked mariners. The following are the details of shipwreck and suffering as gathered from the sufferers.

The Jessie's Trip of 1902

 On the 3rd of December last with a load of lumber for this port, the Jessie left Gander Bay in charge of Arthur Holwell, master; George Holwell, mate; and crew comprising Claude Holwell, Elijah Warren, Jeremiah Fudge, and Elias Grimes, all of Herring Neck.

That day, the weather became stormy and the vessel was run from Seldom-Come-Bye where she remained until the morning of the 5th when in company with the Pioneer, Nakomis, and St. Clair she left again with wind and weather favourable, expecting to reach St. John's next day.

But about 8 o'clock that night a snow storm was encountered while the wind increased to a hurrican, continuing all that night and during the next day, Saturday the 6th. During that time, the ship was laying to steadily, but about 10 o'clock Saturday night a tremendous sea swept over the vessel, carrying away bowspit, jibboom, fore topmast and breaking the mainmast about 20 feet from the deck. Every sail was likewise carried away, their only boat was smashed up, and the once staunch craft was now a helpless hulk at the mercy of wind and sea.

They could do nothing now to help themselves, except to keep the vessel in position by steering, and simply drifting wherever the wind drove them. The Captain had no idea of his position, as his log had been lost, and he was without a chart or nautical instrument. For four days the wind veered from S.E. and E. to N.N.W., but on Thursday the 10th it changed for a time to S.W., only to change back again to N.N.W. blowing with increased volocity and accompanied by a snow storm.

The vessel was now much iced up, and after the heavy straining from the sea was beginning to leak. For a time the pumps were manned, but one of them became useless, getting clogged with sand, about 10 tons of which was in the hold for ballast. Their condition was becoming desperate.

From Sunday the 7th all were on short allowance, a day's food being one-half pint of water and a small quantity of biscuit. Every twenty-four hours, the crew gave up their supply of water and the kettle was boiled in the forecastle and tea was shared out. For eighteen days this was all they lived on and how they managed to work the pumps and keep the vessel aloat they themselves cannot say. But work they did and not once was hope entirely abandoned.

On the night of the 12th, a steam was sighted in the distance and a "flare up" was burned to attract her attention, but she passed on without noticing them. This was a great trial to the wearied men and their work seemed harder afterwards. Fortunately, the weather subsided and from the 13th to the 19th was fairly moderate, giving the men a chance to secure some badly needed rest. On the latter day the storm broke with renewed fury, and for the next four days their sufferings were intense. The food and water supply had nearly given out, only about a gallon of water and a pan of bread dust remaining; the vessel was gradually sinking the men being too worn out to keep her free from water, the wheel had been carried away by a big sea, which also injured the Captain in the thigh, the chance of rescue was apparently a hopeless one. Such was their condition on the morning of the 23rd. In a hopeless kind of way the men work at the pumps all that day. In the evening the storm again went down, but the crew were again in such a state that it made but little difference to them.

That night, however, was to be their last night on board, for about 11 o'clock the masthead lights of a steamer was seen about five miles away. There was only about a gill of oil left in the lantern which was hosted up and down by a single halliard which had been rigged to the broken foremast. This failed to attract the steamer, however, and some birch rind which was around the vessel was set on fire. For a time this also appeared to pass unnoticed, but at length to the unbounded joy - who can described it? - of the worn-out crew of the steamer was seen to change her course and bear down on them.

As reported in the Free Press last week, she proved to be the Hornby Castle bound from Galveston to Antwerp. It was about midnight when the Jessie's crew were rescued by chief-mate Craven, who was in charge of the steamer's boat.

On board the steamer they were shown such attention and kindness that they will not soon forget. To their joy, they found the Captain to be a Newfoundlander, Captain Jackman, who left here about thirty years ago. He desired to be remembered to friends in St. John's, especially to Mr. J.W. McCoubrey, printer.

On New Year's Day Antwerp was reached, and on the following day they were sent to Harwich by the English consul. Here they were badly treated by the custom's authorities, and after some difficulty were sent on to London, where they were kindly looked after, especially by Captain Joy, Superintendent of Seamen's Home. From London, they were forwarded to Liverpool, where passage was obtained for them by the "S.S. Pretorian" to Halifax, where they arrived on Monday last week. The following day they joined the Glencoe, arriving here in due course, thankful to be once again on Terra Nova's shores and glad - oh, so glad - to reach Home, Sweet Home.

1904 "I am searching for information on the surname Gaultois. My grandparents Rose(Brighter) and Joseph Anthony Gaultois came to the U.S. and then to Canada in approx 1904 from Hasroun, Lebanon. They lived in St. George`s, NL for many years and after the death of Joseph Anthony in1946 Rose and her family moved to Stephenville Crossing,NL . I have a fair amount of information but have hit a brick wall in researching the Gaultois surname. I believe it was Gaulthas and probably changed to the French version Gaultois as they immigrated from Lebanon. Perhaps it is related in some way to the community of Gaultois ( the South West coast of Nfld/Lab) as been an early Customs Port of Entry or to St. Pierre & Miquelon ,but there are no records @ the Provincial Archives. I continue to search Canadian and U.S. ship passenger lists from the late 1800s - early 1900s and have written a few addresses in Lebanon. I would appreciate any help . Thank you so much for having a place to post another query. Joanne Young ( Gaultois) captain.young@nf.sympatico.ca

1910" Last year I heard a man call in to a local radio talk show, and as it turned out it was Chaz' father's brother, in his 80s, who said he remembered as a boy in JCove, an old man called Stephen Knight who used to sing this certain song. Since then I've seen somewhere on someone's Tree I believe, who that Stephen must have been, a Stephen Knight who would have been an elderly man around 1910-20. He didn't say Steohen Knight Batstone so I'm going to look through my stuff later and find where I saw that. . He was apparently a good singer, and used to sing a song called "Tom, Jack and Joe" or something like that. Barbara Pederson March 1998

 April 15, 1919 "...possibly a majority of our people who are not of Irish or Scottish descent came from Channel Island stock, principally Jersey and Guernsey men. All the Grealeys and Piccos of Portugal Cove, the Squires of St. Phillips, the Clements of Torbay and the Groucheys, Williams and Caines of Pouch Cove are of Jersey ancestry as are the Normores and Skanes of Bell Island... The ancestor of the Clements family of Torbay was a Jerseyman of that name who at first fished for several years at Western Bay, on the North Side of Conception Bay. From there he moved to Bell Island Beach. After remaining there for a number of years he moved over to St. Phillips where he lived for only 3 or 4 years when he took up his final residence at Torbay.

1934 "my maternal grandmother was Esther Rowsell Mitchell. She married John Mitchell,probably from LaScie. They were buried in the Methodist Cemetary in 1933/4 at Lascie, Green Bay,NF. My mother knows little about them because when she was only 4 yrs old they died of consumption, just days apart.At this time, she moved up to Leading Tickles,ND bay from Lascie, where she was raised by foster parents. I have always wondered whether my Mitchell's were in any way associated to the notorious "Mattie Mitchell" of Halls Bay. A Micmac Indian chief who was part of the finding of mineral deposits near Buchans." Florence MacDonald geomacdo@odyssee.net

1935 "In another letter, written by my g-grandfather in Little Bay Islands in 1935, to Chester J. Strong, a cousin of his in Cambridge, Mass., he says [typed as written; all his inquiries are about Strongs except for Miss May and the others]: "...I often think and spake of when I was at your Fathers home in 1916. He put me so much in mind of my own Father. It seemed like home. He resembled in aperance and maner so much. I think the oldine [only] thing I remember is when Uncle Fred and Uncle Samuel left Twillingate. I do not know how old I was but I remember their having a joyful time at our house the night before leaving. Do you know anything about Uncle Samuels family. Father left Twillingate and came here a few years after your Father and Uncle Samuel left for Canada or the States, and it seems the old people did less corresponding than their descendents. But Familys do get scattered and in some cases very seldom hear from each other. How is Miss May. Think I have heard her name oftener then I have others of your Family. When at your fathers in 1916 I remember meeting Mrs. George and your sister Mrs. Colbourne and her two Daughters. How are they all now. I thought then that Miss May would be Mrs. someone before now..."

 Towards the end of his leter he says: "Refering to your letter re seven children are these your own Family or do you mean Brothers and Sisters. Dont know that I have heard of only yourself and George and Miss May and Mrs. Colbourne..." Barbara Pederson bpederso@terra.nlnet.nf.ca
