2877 There are (at least) 2 candidates for James Higgins:

1. James Higgins buried December 6 1877 age 65 (born about 1812) ‘of Harbour Grace’
He may be James, son of John and Patience Higgins, born October 17 1811 in Harbour Grace baptized June 14 1812 at Harbour Grace Church of England.

2. James Higgins buried September 26 1873 age 51 (born about 1821-1822) ‘of Harbour Grace’
There is no baptism for a James Higgins born in this time period at Harbour Grace Church of England. This James seems less likely to be the husband of Mary Gudger as he is about 8 years younger than Mary Gudger. 
HIGGINS, James (I3563)
 
2878 There are (at least) two possibilities for the maiden surname of Catherine, wife of Phillip Wiseman; namely, Curtis and Eveleigh.

Curtis

Bill Pritchett's email to me dated January 1 2001 states Catherine's maiden surname is Curtis (i.e. "George Wiseman's parents were Philip Wiseman and Catherine Curtis"). In a subsequent email dated January 15 2001, Bill states "All bapt,births ,marriages come from parish records at the Provincial Archives". There is no known evidence in the existing parish records for Catherine Wiseman's maiden surname. Possibly, Bill's source for Catherine's maiden surname was oral family history, but he does not state in his emails this is his source.

Rupert Wiseman's email dated April 23 2002 (in Rootsweb Archiver) states:

I do not have proof that her [Catherine, wife of Phillip Wiseman] surname was CURTIS; it was reported to me by my father, her grandson and next door neighbour for almost 30 years. She was born abt 1831 in the Twillingate area and d. 1919 at Little Bay Islands. In the next cemetery plot to that with the headstones of Philip and Catherine WISEMAN, is the headstone marking the Grave of William Curtis “Born at Dorset, England, 31 Mar 1810, died 21 Jan 1899 at Little Bay Islands”.

Beth Whitehorn's email dated January 13 2003 (in Ancestry) states:

May I ask your source for Curtis as Catherine's maiden name? My source is Rupert Wiseman, whose father Frederick Newton Wiseman lived next door to Catherine; but Rupert told me he's also spoken with other sources who identify Catherine as an Eveleigh or a Pottle.

The Newfoundland's Grand Bank's website contains Jill Marshall's May 2005 transcription of the Little Bay Islands Methodist Baptisms 1865-1891 (Vital Statistics Volume 91). In the transcription of Walter William Wiseman's baptism, Jill records Catherine's Maiden Name as Curtis, and Jill's Research Notes column states "Maiden Name from Amalie Tuffin".

Eveleigh

Catherine Byrne's email of March 7 2012 (in Ancestry) states:

… my grandfather was walter wiseman son of philip wiseman and Catherine eveligh not sure if this is the correct spelling , but my mom always told us this, on the grand bank site they say she was a curtis , but that is wrong my grandfather walter lived with my mom and dad until his death , my dad was Donald Wiseman he pass 20 years ago

Mary (Wiseman) Johnson emailed me a Family Tree Chart containing both typed and handwriiten information on September 18, 2015. This Family Tree Chart originated from Nellie (Wiseman) Simms, daughter of Willis Wiseman and Lydia Ledrew, It was submitted to Mary (Wiseman) Johnson's Facebook page "The Wiseman's of Little Bay Islands" by Nellie (Wiseman) Simms' daughter Ruth (Simms) Churchill.

This Family Tree Chart records the maiden surname of Catherine, wife of Phillip Wiseman, as Eveleigh.

There is evidence of an Evely family in Deadman's Bay in the early 1830's. FamilySearch's Newfoundland Vital Statistics 1753-1893 records baptisms of the following children, all born in Deadman's Bay, of William and Sarah Evely at Greenspond Church of England.

1. Johanna age 7 on August 14 1832
2. Mary Anne age 5 on August 14 1832
3. Nathaniel age 3 on August 14 1832
4. William age 15 months on September 6 1834

Catherine may be the daughter of this William and Sarah Evely. But, if so, why wasn’'t she also baptized on August 14 1832 if she was born about 1831?

Catherine may be both a Curtis and an Eveleigh if she was previously married and widowed.

I have chosen to identify Phillip Wiseman's wife Catherine as Curtis-Eveleigh until (hopefully) her maiden surname can be proven.

Catherine Wiseman's Tombstone in Little Bay Islands reads:

In Memory Of
Catherine
Beloved Wife Of
Philip Wiseman
Who Died January 21 1919
Aged 87 Years
Blessed Are The Dead
Which Die In The Lord 
CURTIS-EVELEIGH, Catherine (I1300)
 
2879 There are 2 burials in Milton Abbas which may be for Ann, daughter of Stephen Vacher and Mary Huett, assuming Ann never married.

Ancestry's Dorset, Church of England, Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1538-1812 Collections records the burial of Ann Vacher on March 14 1804 in Milton Abbas. No other information is recorded.

Ancestry's Dorset, England, Deaths and Burials, 1813-2010 Collection records the burial of Anne Vacher of Milton age 59 on October 5 1832 in Milton Abbas. Anne was born about 1773 which is reasonably consistent with the birth of Ann, daughter of Stephen Vacher and Mary Huett. No other information is recorded.

Ancestry's Dorset, Church of England, Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1538-1812 Collections records the marriage of Ann Vacher and Thomas Herman on January 18 1791 in Blandford Forum. Ann Vacher is recorded as being "of this Parish". There is no evidence in the marriage record to confirm or refute that Ann Vacher who married Thomas Herman is the daughter of Stephen Vacher and Mary Huett. 
VACHER, Ann (I2266)
 
2880 There are 2 burials in Milton Abbas which may be for Jane, daughter of Stephen Vacher and Mary Huett, assuming Jane never married.

Ancestry's Dorset, Church of England, Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1538-1812 Collections records the burial of Jane Vacher on April 18 1809 in Milton Abbas. No other information is recorded.

Ancestry's Dorset, Church of England, Deaths and Burials, 1813-2010 Collection records the burial of Jane Vacher of Village age 46 on November 15 1816 in Milton Abbas. Anne was born about 1770 which is reasonably consistent with the birth of Jane, daughter of Stephen Vacher and Mary Huett. No other information is recorded. 
VACHER, Jane (I2267)
 
2881 There are 4 Walsh's recorded in the 1818 Census of Cape Breton as transcribed on the Cape Breton GenWeb site. They are:

1. James age 27, 5 years in Cape Breton, born in Nova Scotia, country of parents is Ireland, residing in Gulf of Canso, labourer, and widower with 2 children
2. Walter age 24, 1 year in Cape Breton, born in Ireland, country of parents is Ireland, residing in Gulf of Canso, labourer, and single
3. Edward age 55, 20 years in Cape Breton, born in Ireland, country of parents is Ireland, residing between Balhache's Point in the Gut of Canso and Grand Judique, farmer, and married with 3 children
4. Simon age 21, 3 years in Cape Breton, born in Ireland, country of parents is Ireland, residing in Port Hood, shoemaker, and single

As James Walsh age 27 is born in Nova Scotia rather than in Ireland where John Walsh's father was born, it seems unlikely James Walsh age 27 is John Walsh's father.

The Nova Scotia Archives has the following petition from Edward Walsh in 1814:

Petition to Nepean, 1805. Petition to Swayne: Petitioner, age 40, born in Ireland, has lived in Cape Breton the past fifteen years. He has a wife and five children all living at the Gut of Canso. He asks a lease of lands for which he passed Council some years before. Report of Crawley to Smyth: 120 acres, lot 8 at Long Pond, near the Gut of Canso. Plan.

Edward Walsh residing at the Gut of Canso and petitioning for land in 1814 appears to be the same Edward Walsh residing between Balhache's Point in the Gut of Canso and Grand Judique in the 1818 Census. As only three of Edward's children reside with him in 1818, perhaps two of his children married, moved, or died between 1814 and 1818.

One or both of the other two Walsh's in the 1818 Census of the Gulf of Canso (James and Walter) could be Edward's sons, and so account for one or both of Edward's missing children from the 1814 petition. But, Walter has only resided for 1 year in Cape Breton which seems to eliminate him as the son of Edward.

There is currently no evidence to connect the Little Bras ’d'Or Walsh's with these Walsh's in and around Canso in 1818.

The 1838 Census of French Village to Little Bras ’d'Or, Cape Breton County records one Walsh and one Welsh; namely:

1. John Walsh occupation Agriculture with 1 Male under 6, 2 Females 6 to 14, 2 Males over 14, and 2 Females over 14 for a total of 8 persons (Source: Nova Scotia Archives RG1 Vol 449 #28)
2. John Welsh Junr occupation Agriculture with 4 Females under 6, 2 Females 6 to 14, and 3 Females over 14 for a total of 10 persons (Source: Nova Scotia Archives RG1 Vol 449 #27)

Only John Walsh has a son who is a candidate to be the husband of Charlotte Kidd (i.e. a Male over 14). John Welsh Junr only has daughters.

At the time of the 1861 Census, John Walsh and Charlotte Kidd have 2 sons and 4 daughters who are unmarried: 1 Male 1-2 (Andrew James), 1 Female 4-5 (Ellen), 1 Female 5-10 (Emily), 1 Male 10-15 (John William), 1 Female 10-15 (Mary Ann), and 1 Female 15-20 Single (Elizabeth).

Margaret Walsh, daughter of John Walsh and Ellen [maiden surname unknown], married Simon Devoe in November 1860. If Simon Devoe and Margaret Walsh reside with John Walsh and Charlotte Kidd, there would be 1 Male 20-25 Married, and 1 Female either 15-20 Married or 20-25 Married. There would also be a record of a marriage since March 30 1860. Simon Devoe and Margaret Walsh's first child was born in October 1861, and so is not in the 1861 Census.

There are 2 John Welsh's in the 1861 Census of the Polling District of Sydney Mines, Cape Breton with the following numbers in each age range.

a. John Welsh Junr (Polling District 4 Abstract 9 Family 7 - 4 Males and 6 Females): 1 Male 2-3, 1 Female 4-5, 1 Male 5-10, 1 Female 5-10, 1 Female 10-15, 2 Females 15-20 Single, 1 Male 20-30 Single, 1 Female 30-40 Married, and 1 Male 40-50 Married; for a total of 4 Males and 6 Females. This family records 1 who has married since March 30 1860.

b. John Welsh (Polling District 4 Abstract 9 Family 14 - 5 Males and 5 Females): 2 Males 5-10, 1 Male 10-15, 1 Female 10-15, 1 Female 15-20 Single, 1 Female 15-20 Married, 1 Male 20-30 Married, 1 Female 40-50 Married, 1 Female 70-80 Married, and 1 Male 80-90 Married; for a total of 5 Males and 5 Females. Curiously, there are 2 Males and 3 Females Married. Presumably it is the Female 40-50 Married whose husband is missing. This family records 2 who have married since March 30 1860.

The page with ages 70 and over for Abstract 9 records these Welsh's as Family Numbers 6 and 13 (rather than 7 and 14).

The unmarried children residing with John Welsh Junr match in gender and are close in age range to those of John Walsh and Charlotte Kidd. Five children in the 1861 Census match the age ranges of John Welsh Junr's children; namely 1 Female 4-5 (Ellen), 1 Female 5-10 (Emily), 1 Male 10-15 (John William), 1 Female 10-15 (Mary Ann), and 1 Female 15-20 Single (Elizabeth). Two children in the 1861 Census do not match the age ranges of John Welsh Junr's children (i.e. 1 Male 2-3 and 1 Male 5-10), but are close with 1 Male 1-2 (Andrew James) and 1 Male 10-15 (John William).

It is reasonable to conclude (despite these slight age range discrepancies) John Welsh Junr is the husband of Charlotte Kidd. It is also reasonable to conclude John Welsh Junr is the son of John Walsh in the 1838 Census of French Village to Little Bras ’d'Or as he is the only Walsh or Welsh residing there with Males; including 2 Males over 14.

FamilySearch's Nova Scotia Probate Records, 1760-1993 records the Will and Estate Administration for John Walsh (Farmer) of Little Bras ’d'Or who died in February 1854. (Cape Breton Estate Files, 1845-1859, M13-P19 O3 Images 667-676 of 1018)

John Walsh's Will names his 8 daughters and indicates his wife is still living; his Will does not name a son, but does name a nephew James Freeman. It is reasonable to conclude this John Walsh who was a Farmer and died in February 1854 is John Welsh Junr in the 1838 Census of French Village to Little Bras ’d'Or. John Welsh Junr resides with no Males and with 4 Females under 6, 2 Females 6 to 14, and 3 Females over 14; or with a total of 9 Females. So, John Welsh Junr in the 1838 Census dies before the 1861 Census.

So, it is reasonable to conclude John Welsh in the 1861 Census (whose household includes a Male over 70) is John Walsh with 1 Male under 6, 2 Females 6 to 14, 2 Males over 14, and 2 Females over 14 in the 1838 Census; and is the father of John Walsh, husband of Charlotte Kidd.

See Notes for Ellen unknown, wife of John Walsh, for an analysis of those likely residing with John Welsh in the 1861 Census.

FamilySearch's Newfoundland Vital Statistics, 1753-1893 has no record of the marriage of a John Walsh/Welsh/Welch between 1780 and 1820.

FamilySearch's Nova Scotia, Antigonish Catholic Diocese, 1823-1905 records the marriage of William Scoffield and Elizabeth Walsh "of this parish" with witnesses Gregory Mahere, Catherine Maher, and Elisabeth Keating on November 25 1835 in Sacred Heart, Sydney (Marriage Image 158 of 166).

Elizabeth Walsh, wife of William Scoffield, may be the daughter of John Walsh and Ellen unknown. Although Elizabeth Walsh is "of this parish", Sacred Heart was larger than just Little Bras ’d'Or, and Elizabeth Walsh may be the daughter of a family other than John Walsh and Ellen unknown.

The Will of John Walsh (Farmer) of Little Bras ’d'Or who died in February 1854 (see above) records a daughter Elizabeth who is unmarried when the Will was written in December 1853. So, Elizabeth Walsh who married William Scoffield is not the daughter of John Walsh (Farmer) of Little Bras ’d'Or who died in February 1854.

It seems the only subsequent record of William Scoffield is in the 1838 Census of French Village to Little Bras ’d'Or (Family 25) with 1 Female under 6 and 1 Female over 14.

There is no record of William Scoffield is the 1861 or 1871 Censuses of Cape Breton County, and no record of baptisms of children of William Scoffield and Elizabeth Walsh in FamilySearch's Nova Scotia, Antigonish Catholic Diocese, 1823-1905. 
WALSH, John (I5353)
 
2882 There are at least 2 candidates for James Dalton, son of John Dalton and Isabella Davidson:

1. James Dalton who died in Carlisle in 1841 Q2 Carlisle Vol. 25 Page 54. The Death Registration alone may be insufficient to identify James as the son of John Dalton and Isabella Davidson.

2. James Dalton of James and Ellen Dalton in the 1851 and 1861 Censuses of Carlisle with children Jane born about 1839 and William John born about 1843; all born Carlisle. James Dalton's ages in both Censuses (37 in 1851 and 47 in 1861) imply a year of birth about 1813 to 1814 which is about 2-3 years younger than James, son of John Dalton and Isabella Davidson.

Neither FamilySearch's England Marriages, 1538-1973 nor Ancestry's England & Wales, Civil Registration Marriage Index, 1837-1915 record the marriage of a James Dalton and Ellen in Cumberland in the late 1830's.

James and Ellen Dalton were not found in either the 1841 or 1871 Censuses. Possible Death Registrations for James and Ellen were found in 1865 (Carlisle 1865 Q1 Vol. 10b Page 304) and 1864 (Carlisle 1864 Q4 Vol. 10b Page 263) respectively.

Daughter Jane’ Dalton's Birth Registration may be either Jane Dalton 1838 Q4 Brampton Cumberland Vol. 25 Page 36 or Jane Dalton 1839 Q1 Brampton Cumberland Vol 25 Page 31. But, Jane, daughter of James and Ellen Dalton, was born in Carlisle according to the 1851 and 1861 Censuses. FamilySearch's England Births and Christenings, 1538-1975 does not record the baptism of a Jane, daughter of John and Ellen Dalton, in Cumberland.

Son William John Dalton'’s Birth Registration may be William John Dalton Carlisle 1844 Q2 Vol. 25 Page 66. FamilySearch's England Births and Christenings, 1538-1975 records the baptism of John Dalton, son of James and Ellen Dalton on June 23, 1844 in Saint Mary, Carlisle. 
DALTON, James (I2362)
 
2883 There are many spelling variants for Charles' surname, including:

Goudreau - 1835 Marriage
Gauthreau - 1853 Baptism of daughter Catherine
Gauthreau - 1859 Baptism of daughter Agnès
Gouthrow - 1861 Census of East Bay
Guthro - 1871 Census
Gutho - 1881 Census
Gouthrou - 1883 Will
Gouthero - 1901 Census (of wife Bridget Walsh)
Guthro - Death Registration for wife Bridget Walsh

I have assumed these are spelling variants of Gautrot, and have chosen this spelling to be consistent with the Dictionnaire Généalogique des Familles Acadiennes 1636-1714. 
GAUTROT, Charles (I5790)
 
2884 There are no LeBlanc's recorded in either the 1811 Census of River Bourgeois or the 1813 Militia Roll for River Bourgeois. Benjamin LeBlanc's approximate year of birth indicates he should appear in the 1813 Militia Roll. So, Benjamin LeBlanc moved to River Bourgeois after 1813.

The 1811 Census of Little Arichat records one Benjamin LeBlanc; namely Benjamin LeBlanc (son Elias) with 1 Male 14-60, 1 Female 14-60, and no Unmarried Males or Females. Likely, the 1811 Census identifies Benjamin as the son of Elias because there is another Benjamin LeBlanc in Little Arichat.

The 1813 Militia Roll for Isle Madame records two Benjamin LeBlanc's, both in Little Arichat:
1. Benjamin LeBlanc age 27 born Cape Breton Mariner with no Women, Boys, or Girls; suggesting he is not married. This Benjamin LeBlanc is listed within Mathurin LeBlanc's sons.
2. Benjamin LeBlanc age 23 born Cape Breton Mariner with 1 Woman, 2 Boys, and no Girls. This married Benjamin LeBlanc is the son of Hyacinth dit Elias LeBlanc and his first wife Émilie Dugas dite Baie de la Ouine.

The Nova Scotia Archives has the following Land Petition dated 1814:

LeBlanc, Benjamin
Petition to Swayne: Petitioner, a native of Cape Breton, is 25 years old, married, and has two children. He asks a lot at the River Burgeois (sic). Note: complied for a lot.

Likely, this is a petition from the Benjamin LeBlanc who came to reside in River Bourgeois. The Benjamin LeBlanc making the Land Petition in 1814 has 2 children born earlier than 1814 which is consistent with the Benjamin LeBlanc in the 1813 Militia Roll for Little Arichat who is age 23 and has 2 boys.

Neither of Benjamin LeBlanc's sons Élie LeBlanc or Étienne LeBlanc are born prior to 1813. So, Benjamin LeBlanc must have other, older children. Both sons Élie LeBlanc and Étienne LeBlanc identify their mother as Anne Landry in the records of their marriages in River Bourgeois (in 1859 and 1860 respectively).

Anne Landry's first husband is Joseph Fougère, son of Simon (dit Caniche) Fougère and Marguerite Samson. See Notes for Anne Landry, wife of Joseph Fougère and Benjamin LeBlanc, and Sources for Joseph Fougère, husband of Anne Landry, for further information.

The 1813 Militia Roll for River Bourgeois records Joseph Foshear (sic) age 23 born Cape Breton Mariner with no Women, Boys, or Girls; following Simon Foushear (sic) Senior and Simon Foshear (sic) June. As Anne Landry has not yet married her first husband in 1813, she can not be the mother of Benjamin LeBlanc's 2 sons born before 1813. Benjamin LeBlanc must have been married prior to his marriage to Anne Landry.

The 1838 Census of River Bourgeois records the following LeBlance (sic) families with the numbers of Males under 6, Females under 6, Males under 14, Females under 14, Males over 14 (not Family Head), Females over 14 (not Family Head), and Total (including Family Heads). All of these LeBlance (sic) Male Heads are Fishermen.

Benjn & Nancy 2 0 0 0 0 1 5
Peter & Charlotte 0 0 0 0 1 0 3
Simon & Victoire 0 2 0 0 0 0 4

Benjamin LeBlanc and Anne Landry reside with their 2 sons Élie and Étienne, and another Female over 14. This Female over 14 is likely Henriette (k.a. Harriet) LeBlanc, daughter of Benjamin LeBlanc and his first wife Magdeleine Richard.

The 1861 Census of River Bourgeois records the following LeBlanc families with their number of males, number of females, and total number:

Page 2 No. 36 Simon 5 5 10
Page 3 No. 3 Elias 2 2 4
Page 3 No. 6 Benjamin 2 1 3
Page 3 No. 29 Peter 1 2 3
Page 4 No. 16 Simon 4 5 9

Benjamin LeBlong's family has 2 Males and 1 Female, including 1 Male 20-30 Single, 1 Female 50-60 Married, and 1 Male 70-80 Married. There is also 1 person married since March 30 1860; namely son Étienne who married Nathalie Landry. The Male 20-30 Single may be a third son (born about 1830-1840), or perhaps a servant or other employee.

Elias LeBlanc is very likely the son of Benjamin LeBlanc and Anne Landry, although with an additional, unknown son. There is no Élie/Elias LeBlanc in the 1861 Census of ’D'Escousse (County of Richmond, Polling District No. 3).

Peter LeBlanc is likely the son of Benjamin LeBlanc and Magdeleine Richard with his first wife Charlotte Dugas.

It is odd there are 2 Simon LeBlanc's with similar size and composition families. Based on current research, Simon LeBlanc's family may consist of as many as 7 males and 5 females (including Simon LeBlanc and Victoire Fougère, but excluding daughter Victoire who died young). So the number of females match both Simon's, but the Simon's have 2 or 3 fewer males. One of these Simon LeBlanc's is likely Benjamin LeBlanc and Magdeleine Richard's son. The other Simon LeBlanc is a mystery. 
LEBLANC, Benjamin (I1404)
 
2885 There are no Normand's recorded in either the 1811 Census of Richmond County or the 1813 Militia Rolls for Richmond County. This suggests Joseph Normand arrived in Arichat late in or after 1813.

The 1838 Census of Arichat (Page 3) records Joseph Normand & Wife Mariner with 1 Male under 6, 2 Females under 6, 1 Female 6-14, and 1 Female over 14 for a total of 7 persons.

In the 1838 Census, Joseph Normand is followed by:
1. Maximan Landry & Wife Carpenter with 2 Males over 14 and 3 Females over 14 for a total of 7 persons
2. Widow Sophia Foret Spinster with 1 Male under 6, 2 Males 6-14, 1 Female 6-14, 4 Males over 14, and 2 Females over 14 for a total of 11 persons 
NORMAND, Joseph (I5684)
 
2886 There are only 3 known records of Susanne Samson's age: the 1871 Census, her burial in ’L'Ardoise, and her Death Registration.

The 1871 Census of ’L'Ardoise records Patrick Doyle age 45 Fisherman Widower, Patrick Doyle age 13, Susan Grassie age 82 Widow, and Mary Grassie age 34; all born NS (Page 5 Family 16). Patrick Doyle's family is recorded immediately before Fidele Gracie and Mathilde LeRoux.

Patrick James, son of Patrick Doyle and Catherine McDonald, was born March 24 1858 and baptized May 18 1858 in ’L'Ardoise. The godmother for Patrick James Doyle is Marie Graisse.

There is no known family connection between Patrick Doyle and Suzanne (Samson) Gracie.

The age recorded at her burial and in her Death Registration is 89; both completed by the parish priest (Rev. J. Quinan in her Death Registration).

So, there are 2 suggested years of birth; about 1781-1782 based on an age of 89 on her burial and Death Registration, and about 1788-1789 based on the 1871 Census.

Marie, daughter of Alexis Gracie and Suzanne Samson, was born June 16 1833. It is more reasonable to believe Marie was born when her mother was about 45 than when she was about 52. So, it is more reasonable to believe Suzanne Samson's age in the 1871 Census is more accurate. 
SAMSON, Suzanne (I2062)
 
2887 There are River Bourgeois burials for Joseph Bourke age 79, husband of Susan Bourke, who died April 21 1882 and for Susanne Burke age 97, wife of Joseph Burke, who was buried December 14 1897. What is Susanne Bourque's maiden surname and who are Joseph Bourque's parents?

Ancestry's 1881 Census of River Bourgeois records Joseph Burk age 78 Fisherman and wife Susan age 77, both born Nova Scotia. They reside with Urban Sampson age 48 Fisherman, wife Susan age 46, and their 5 children. So, Joseph Bourque was born about 1802 and his wife Susanne about 1803.

There seems to be no record of Joseph and Susanne Bourque in the 1871 Census of River Bourgeois.

Ancestry's 1861 Census of River Bourgeois records one Joseph Burke with 2 Males and 2 Females; 1 Female 5-15 and all others over 15. None can read or write.

FamilySearch's Nova Scotia, Antigonish Catholic Diocese, 1823-1905 records the following marriages involving children of a Joseph Bourque between 1840 and 1865 in River Bourgeois:

1. Rufine Bourg, daughter of Joseph Bourg and Susanne Fougere, and Pierre Landry, son of Pierre Landry and Susanne Mombourquet, on January 22 1844
2. Olive Bourg, daughter of Joseph Bourg and Susanne Fougere, and Desire Dugast, son of Martial Dugast and late Marine Landry, on January 9 1854
3. Simon Bourg, son of Joseph Bourg and Susanne Fougere, and Marine Dugast, daughter of Martial Dugast and late Marine Landry, on October 23 1854
4. Susanne Bourg, daughter of Joseph Bourg and Susanne Fougere, and Urbain Samson, son of Boniface Samson and Euphrosine Samson, on January 8 1855
5. Honore Bourg, son of Joseph Bourg and Susanne Fougere, and Adele Samson, daughter of Jean Samson and Marguerite Landry, on January 7 1862

These are the only marriages for children of a Joseph and Susanne Bourque between 1840 and 1865 in River Bourgeois. It is reasonable to conclude Susanne's maiden surname is Fougère.

In the 1881 Census, Joseph Bourque and Susanne Fougere reside with their daughter Susanne who married Urbain Samson in 1855.

The 1813 Militia Roll for River Bourgeois records the following Burke's: Peter age 69 with no Women, Boys, or Girls, Joseph age 36 with 1 Woman, 3 Boys, and 1 Girl; John age 30 with 1 Woman, 1 Boy, and no Girls; and Peter age 28 with 1 Woman, 3 Boys, and no Girls.

The 1811 Census of River Bourgeois records the following Boureq's: Joseph with 3 Males under 14 and 1 Female under 14, John with no Males under 14 and 1 Female under 14, and Peter with 2 Males under 14 and no Females under 14. None have children aged 14-60.

As John Bourque resides with no Males in 1811, he can not be the father of Joseph Bourque, husband of Susanne Fougère, born about 1802.

The 1813 Militia Roll for River Bourgeois records Peter Burke as age 28 implying a year of birth about 1785. Peter is likely too young to have a son born about 1802 when he was about 17.

So, it is reasonable to conclude Joseph Bourque, husband of Susanne Fougère, is the son of Joseph Bourque and his first wife Rufine Landry. 
BOURQUE, Joseph (I2887)
 
2888 There are several Heart's Content Church of England baptisms for children of George and Susannah Rendell, including:

Leah Margaret baptized December 6 1880
Hubert Norman baptized March 24 1883
Emily Bennett baptized September 15 1885
George William born August 5 1887 baptized October 12 1887

This is the only Rendell family baptizing children in Heart's Content Church of England with the wife's name as Susannah. It is likely this George Rendell is the husband of Susannah Warren, especially with their son named Hubert and their daughter named Leah (which I believe is the first name of Susannah Warren's mother).

There is a George Rendell age 33 occupation Fisherman son of Charles Rendell born in Heart's Content in the 1889 Voter's List for Heart's Content. There is no other George Rendell on this Voter's List.

FamilySearch's Newfoundland Vital Records, 1840-1949 does not record the Death Registration for a George R[a/e]ndell who is a candidate to be the husband of Susannah Warren.

Possibly, George Rendell died between 1889 (after the 1889 Voter's List) and 1890 (before Civil Registration began in 1891). 
RENDELL, George (I2076)
 
2889 There are several Nova Scotia Land Petitions which identify Celestin Landry and show he settled in D'Escousse.

In 1816:

Landris, Selestain
Petition to Fitzherbert: Petitioner, age 21, a native of Cape Breton, asks a lot on the south side of St. Peter's Bay near Little Discouse.

The (unusual) name and age confirm this Petition is from Celestin Landry of River Bourgeois. Also, Celestin states he is a native of Cape Breton, not Isle Madame.

In 1819:

Porrier, Hubert
Petition to Ainslie: Petitioner, age 24, married, is a native of Isle Madame. His mother has a lot, but has several children and supports herself by working the land. He asks a certain lot at Descousse for which a warrant was issued to Celestine Landrie in 1816. Landrie has purchased other land and Charles Porrier cuts the hay on a small clearing. Note: rejected.

In 1820:

Landrie, Celistin
Retort of Crawley to Crowdy: Lot 6 at Lower Descousse on the west side of St. Peter's Bay, 42 acres. Plan. 
LANDRY, Celestin (I2843)
 
2890 There are several variant spellings for this Ewing surname in the available civil registration and census records.

The maiden surname for Sarah, wife of Robert McBride, is recorded as Uins, Euens, and Evens (?) in the Birth Registrations of her children born after the start of Civil Registration in England.

Ann, wife of Isaac Ewing, is recorded as Ewans in the 1841 Census, and as Ewing in her Death Registration.

George, son of Isaac and Ann Ewing, is recorded as Ewings in the 1841 Census, Ewing in the 1851 Census, and Ewings in the 1861 Census.

Catherine Finnigan, wife of George Ewing, is recorded as Ewings in her Death Registration.

In the interest of consistency, I have chosen the spelling of Ewing for this surname.

The following description is from the Ulster Ancestry website - A Sample of Irish Family Names for the surname Ewing.

Ewing is quite a numerous surname in Ireland; in 1866 there were 27 births registered for it. Including a few for the synonyms Ewings and Ewin, while in 1890 the number was 24, in both cases almost entirely in Ulster.  In that province it has since the seventeenth century been especially associated with the counties of Donegal, Derry, Tyrone and Antrim.  Many Ewing wills are recorded for the dioceses comprising these northern areas.  The "census" of 1659 is one of the earliest Irish documents to include the name - in it Alexander Ewing appears as one of the leading inhabitants of Letterkenny, Co. Donegal.  A few years later it appears frequently in the Hearth Money Rolls for that county.  It is probable that Dublin Ewings, such as the notable printing and publishing family of the mid-eighteenth century, came to the capital from the north.

The origin of the name is interesting.  According to Reaney it goes back to the Greek eugenes (well-born), cognate with the Gaelic Irish eoghan.  Mac GiollaDomhnaigh, too, states that Ewing, also found as MacEwing, is a form of the well known Scottish name MacEwen, gaelice Mac Eoghain, i.e. our Irish MacKeown. 
EWING, Isaac (I5261)
 
2891 There are the following sources for Frederick George King's date of birth:

1. The 1921 Census of Sydney Nova Scotia which is as of June 1 1921 records Fred King age 32, implying a year of birth between June 1888 and May 1889.

2. The Death Certificate (Nova Scotia) for Fred George King, completed by his daughter Bertha (King) Mersereau, records Fred George's date of birth as February 2 1889.

In addition, Ancestry's Canadian Passenger Lists, 1865-1935 records Fre’d'k King age 21 Born Newfoundland Destination Sydney Current Occupation Fisherman Intended Occupation Laborer Religion Methodist arriving from Port aux Basque in Sydney on September 22 1910, implying a year of birth between September 1888 and September 1889. This Fre’d'k King is a candidate to be the husband of Minnie Coombs as his date of birth is consistent with those above. But, Ancestry's 1911 Census of Canada does not seem to record a Fred King who is a candidate to be the husband of Minnie Coombs.

From the Cape Breton Post (February 22, 1964) available on the Cape Breton Genealogy & Historical Association website (www.cbgha.org):

The funeral of Fred G. King will take place from the Fillmore Funeral Home, Sunday (Feb. 23) afternoon at 3 o'clock. Interment in Forest Haven Memorial Gardens. 
KING, Frederick George (I2094)
 
2892 There are various spellings used for the surname of Charles, husband of Elizabeth Pavitt. These include:

1. Marriage of Charles Desbrow and Elizabeth Pavitt in Tottenham in 1830
2. Baptism of Ann, daughter of Charles and Elizabeth Disborough in 1831
3. 1841 Census records Charles Disbrow, Elizabeth Disbrow, Ann Disbrow, and Bett Pavitt on Waggonhorse Lane, Tottenham

There is no record of a Charles Desbrow (or variant spelling) in the 1851 Census of the County of Middlesex.

Ancestry's Collection for London, England, Deaths and Burials, 1813-1980 records the burial of Charles Desbrow age 64 abode Tottenham on November 5 1850 at All Hallows, Tottenham, Middlesex. This may be Charles Desbrow, husband of Elizabeth Pavitt, but there is insufficient information in the burial record to determine this. 
DESBROW, Charles (I2548)
 
2893 There is a baptism for John, son of John and Elizabeth Pike of Bradley's Cove, on January 26 1798 at Carbonear Methodist. Possibly, if Ann's surname is actually Pike, she may be the daughter of this John and Elizabeth Pike. PIKE?, Ann (I2582)
 
2894 There is a Blackhead Methodist marriage for George Kennedy (of Western Bay) and Susanna Butt (of Western Bay) on May 14, 1843 in Western Bay. There are Blackhead Methodist baptisms for the following children of George and Susan(na) Kennedy: Flora Jane (born/baptized July 15, 1843), Mary Ann (born/baptized September 1, 1845), and William Douglas (born/baptized September 12, 1848).

There is no burial for either a George or a Susan(na) Kennedy in either the Blackhead Methodist or the Western Bay Methodist parish records. There is, however, a burial for George Kennedy age 66 in Catalina or Little Catalina on August 15, 1877, implying a year of birth about 1811. There is no burial record for a Susan(na) Kennedy in Catalina or Little Catalina.

There is a Catalina Methodist marriage for William Douglas Kennedy (of Little Catalina) and Susanna King (of Little Catalina) on December 18, 1879. There is a Catalina Methodist burial for William (of Little Catalina) age 58 who died on May 28, 1904; implying a year of birth about 1845 to 1846. This approximate year of birth is consistent with the birth of William Douglas, son of George Kennedy and Susanna Butt (of Western Bay). The Death Registration for William Kennedy gives his place of birth as Western Bay. This confirms George Kennedy and Susanna Butt of Western Bay moved to Little Catalina around 1850. 
KENNEDY, George (I5202)
 
2895 There is a Burgeo Church of England baptism on May 8 1863 for an unnamed child of William and Mary Ann Crew of Ramea. Unfortunately no name, date of birth, or gender is recorded for this baptism.

There is also a Burgeo Church of England baptism on June 29 1863 for an unnamed child of John and Elizabeth Crew of Morgan's Island. This child is recorded as male, but no name or date of birth is recorded.

There is a Burgeo Church of England marriage on August 28 1886 at Deer Island for William Thomas Crewe age 23 of Seal Islands and Tryphena Rose age 25 of Seal Islands. Thomas' age at marriage implies a year of birth about 1862 to 1863. It is reasonable to conclude William Thomas Crewe is one of the unnamed children baptized in May and June 1863. But which one?

The marriage of William Thomas Crewe and Tryphena Rose occurred on Deer Island, and the witnesses were William Crewe and Hannah Crewe. William Crewe is either the husband of Mary Ann Harris, or the husband of Ann (and the father of William, husband of Mary Ann Harris). Hannah Crewe is the oldest daughter of William Crewe and Mary Ann Harris.

The location of the marriage on Deer Island (although both William Thomas Crewe and Tryphena Rose reside on Seal Islands) as well as the presence of William Crewe and Hannah Crewe as witnesses are compelling reasons to believe William Thomas is the son of William Crewe and Mary Ann Harris. Likely it is William Thomas' father and sister who are the witnesses.

Based on the baptisms of their known children, John and Elizabeth Crewe resided in Morgan's Island (in 1855, 1858, and 1863), and Hunt's Island (in 1863). There's no evidence they ever resided on Deer Island.

So, it seems reasonable to conclude William Thomas is the son of William Crewe and Mary Ann Harris. 
CREWE, William Thomas (I3895)
 
2896 There is a burial for Caroline Pittman Caines at Lamaline Church of England on March 18 1865 in the burial record transcription originally provided by Violet Hann and made available online by Randy J. Harnett at familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/h/a/r/Randy-J-Harnett/.

Randy Harnett identifies this Caroline Pittman Caines as the daughter of James Caines. Caroline Pittman Caines' age at death is not recorded in the burial record.

The baptism of Caroline, daughter of James and Susannah Caines of Lamaline, at Grand Bank Methodist Circuit does not record a middle name for Caroline.

Before the 1865 burial of Caroline Pittman Caines, there is a Caroline Pittman Caines baptized at Lamaline Church of England. She is the daughter of James Caines, son of James Caines and Susannah Pittman, and Eliza Louise Laskey. However, this Caroline Pittman Caines is known to have lived well beyond 1865.

If there were another Caroline Pittman Caines born before 1865, she would need to be the daughter of George Caines, Richard Caines, or Ambrose Caines; all sons of James Caines and Susannah Pittman. None of George, Richard, or Ambrose are known to have married prior to 1865. There are no baptisms for daughters of George, Richard, or Ambrose at Lamaline Church of England prior to 1865.

So, it is reasonable to believe this is the burial for Caroline Pittman Caines, daughter of James Caines and Susannah Pittman. 
CAINES, Caroline Pittman (I2069)
 
2897 There is a burial for Harriet Caines at Lamaline Church of England on May 1 1879 in the burial record transcription originally provided by Violet Hann and made available online by Randy J. Harnett at familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/h/a/r/Randy-J-Harnett/. Randy Harnett identifies this Harriet Caines as the daughter of James Caines and the wife of Samuel Pittman. Harriet Caines' age at death is not recorded in the burial record. CAINES, Harriet (I3937)
 
2898 There is a burial for Mary Ann Eliza Caines at Lamaline Church of England on December 7 1887 in the burial record transcription originally provided by Violet Hann and made available online by Randy J. Harnett at familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/h/a/r/Randy-J-Harnett/. Randy Harnett identifies this Mary Ann Eliza Caines as the daughter of James Caines and the wife of John King. Mary Ann Eliza Caines' age at death is not recorded in the burial record. CAINES, Mary Ann (I2067)
 
2899 There is a burial in D'Escousse for Anne Josse age 95 who died August 1 1834.

Anne Josse, wife of Guillaume Cordeau, submitted a Land Petition in 1815 indicating the Cordeau's settled in ’D'Escousse about 1779 and resided in ’D'Escousse since then. As the burial records Anne Josse as age 95 (and so born about 1739), it is reasonable to conclude she is the wife of Guillaume Josse.

The 1752 Census of Île Royale on the north coast of Isle Madame records François Josse age 26 Coaster native of Port Toulouse, wife Marie Margueritte Tardif (sic) age 22 native of Louisbourg, and daughter Jeanne age 1 year. There is no record of how long they have resided on the north coast of Isle Madame.

There is no daughter Anne age about 12 (which would imply Marie Margueritte Dardy gave birth at age 10). Possibly, Anne is Jeanne. If not, Anne was born after the 1752 Census.

Anne Josse was born in Louisbourg (rather than on the north coast of Isle Madame) according to the record of her marriage to Guillaume Cordeau. 
JOSSE, Anne (I2870)
 
2900 There is a Death Registration for Barbe LeBlanc age 64 born Arichat died 20 April 1867 in West Arichat of Consumption (Registration Year: 1867 - Book: 1815 - Page: 12 - Number: 65). There is no record of her spouse, parents, or marital status (i.e. married or widowed). So, it is not possible to conclude this is Barbe Beauséjour, wife of Benoni LeBlanc.

The informant for the Death Registration is Joseph DesVeaux. A Joseph deVaux married Charlotte-Marine LeBlanc, daughter of Benoni LeBlanc and Barbe Beauséjour, and so is Barbe (Beauséjour) LeBlanc's son-in-law. This suggests Barbe LeBlanc who died 20 April 1867 in West Arichat may be the widow of Benoni LeBlanc.

There is no Barbe Beausejour or Barbe LeBlanc recorded as a head of family in the 1861 Census of West Arichat, but she may reside with one of her children. 
BEAUSÉJOUR, Barbe (I945)
