3001 The National Archives contains the Will of Thomas Pike Durell of Poole a Captain in the Royal Navy dated 30 June 1803 (PROB-11-1404-249). The margin identification names him as "Thomas otherwise Thomas Pike Durell Esquire".

Thomas Pike Durell’s Will bequeaths to his following "Relations":

1. "my relation Young West of Poole aforesaid Surgeon". The proving of the Will states Young West is the nephew of Thomas Pike Durell.

2. "Elizabeth West daughter of the said Young West to be payable at her age of twenty one years".

3. "children of Martha Willis Widow viz Martha Willis Susanna Willis and Eliza Willis". The Will does not state the nature of the relationship between Thomas Pike Durell and Martha Willis.

4. "Harriett Green daughter of the late Young Green deceased to be payable when she attains her age of twenty one years". The Will does not state the nature of the relationship between Thomas Pike Durell and Young Green.

5. "my niece Elizabeth Pike Barnes wife of [blank] Barnes of Longfleet near Poole"

Thomas Pike Durell’s Will also mentions "my nephew Thomas Green", who owes money to Thomas Pike Durell.

Who is "Harriett Green daughter of the late Young Green”? She can not be the daughter of Young Green, husband of Susanna Pike, because this Young Green died in 1751 and can not have a daughter under 21 in 1803.

Young Green, husband of Mary Henning and son of Young Green and Susanna Pike, has a daughter Harriet Margaret born Apr 21 1788 and baptized August 11 1788 at Old Meeting Hill Street Presbyterian, Poole, Dorset. Harriet Margaret Green is the niece of Thomas Pike Durell if his wife is Susannah Green, daughter of Young Green and Susanna Pike.

Young Green and Mary Henning have a son Thomas born May 22 1779 and baptized June 20 1779 at Old Meeting Hill Street Presbyterian, Poole, Dorset. Again, Thomas Green is the nephew of Thomas Pike Durell if his wife is Susannah Green, daughter of Young Green and Susanna Pike.

Thomas Pike Durell’s Will does not name a wife, but bequeaths to his daughter Susanna Durell. The bequest is "for her sole and separate use independent and exclusive of any husband with whom she may intermarry”; indicating she is a spinster.

FamilySearch’s England Births and Christenings, 1538-1788 records Susannah born January 10 1776, daughter of Thomas and Susannah Durell, baptized March 3 1776 at Old Meeting Hill Street Presbyterian, Poole, Dorset. Father Thomas Durell’s wife’s forename of Susannah is consistent with Thomas Pike Durell’s marriage to Susannah Green, daughter of Young Green and Susanna Pike.

It is reasonable to conclude Thomas Pike Durell Captain in the Royal Navy who wrote the Will dated June 30 1803 is the husband of Susanna Green. It is not reasonable to believe there is another Thomas Pike in Poole at this time with the same name combinations for a wife, daughter, niece, and nephew.

The Maritime History Archive website has published Keith Matthews Name Files, 1500-1850. There is the following item for Thomas Durell;

1735: Poole, Unitarians, Dorset Parish Records, England - Thos Pike Durell, son of David/Mary

So, Thomas Pike Durell’s parents are David and Mary Durell. With forenames of Thomas Pike, his mother’s maiden surname may be Pike. Mary, daughter of Thomas Pike and Elizabeth unknown, married a Durell, whose forename is not known. If Thomas Pike Durell is the grandson of Thomas Pike and Elizabeth unknown, then he married his first cousin Susannah Green.

Ancestry’s England and Wales, Non-Conformist and Non-Parochial Registers, 1567-1970 record the following baptisms at Poole Skinner Street (Independent):

1. Martha born March 24 1782, daughter of Sam: and Martha Willis, baptized May 9 1785 (Image 13 of 30)
2. Benjamin, born January 26 1785, son of Sam: and Martha Willis, baptized May 9 1785 (Image 13 of 30)
3. Eliza born December 30 1786, daughter of Sam: and Martha Willis, baptized February 8 1788 (Image 13 of 30)
4. Thos Durell born July 1 1788, son of Sam and Martha Willis, baptized September 19 1788 (Image 14 of 30)

With daughters Martha and Eliza, this may be the Willis family in Thomas Pike Durell’s Will. One child is named Thomas Durell Willis. That suggests Martha, wife of Samuel Willis, may have a maiden surname of Durell, and so may be the sister of Thomas Pike Durell. 
DURELL, Thomas Pike (I5893)
 
3002 The National Archives contains the Will of Thomas Pike of Poole Merchant dated 29 March 1741 and proved June 10 1741 (PROB-11-710-990). Thomas Pike’s Will names his wife and children, but does not mention any other relatives. Is this Thomas Pike the son of Thomas Pike and Susanna Bird?

Thomas Pike’s Will bequeaths property known "by the Name of Irgant otherwise Organt House situate at Irgant in the parish of Lytchett Minster … now in the occupation of Cornelius Cheesman … purchased by me of William Cheesman father of the said Cornelius Cheesman".

Lytchett Minster is 3 miles northwest of Poole Saint James.

Dorset Archives and Local Studies contains the document (Dorset County Museum Collection D1/8279) in which Thomas Pike of Poole, Newfoundland Planter, leases land for one year in Lytchett Minster to William Cheeseman, William Oakley, and Ann Emberly on April 21 1703. This land is "Irgant House aka Organt House". One of the witnesses is Timothy Bird, likely the brother of Susanna Bird, wife of Thomas Pike. (A transcript of this agreement is available at https://www.math.mun.ca/~dapike/family_history/pike/deeds/OrgantHouse/)

The lessor Thomas Pike may be the husband of Susanna Bird, or the son of Thomas Pike and Susanna Bird. In either case, this lease establishes a connection between the family of Thomas Pike and Susanna Bird, and "Irgant House aka Organt House".

Dorset Archives and Local Studies contains another document (Dorset County Museum Collection D1/2504) in which Susannah Pike of Poole, Widow, sells lands in Lytchett Minster to Thomas Pike of Poole, her son, Newfoundland Planter in 1710.

Thomas Pike’s Will bequeaths other property in Lytchett Minster, and other documents in the Dorset Archives and Local Studies describe Thomas Pike involved in a number of Lytchett Minster properties. See description of various Dorset Archives and Local Studies documents below.

This connection to Lytchett Minster and, in particular to "Irgant House aka Organt House", makes it reasonable to conclude Thomas Pike Merchant bequeathing property in Lytchett Minster is the son of Thomas Pike and Susanna Bird.

Dorset Archives and Local Studies contains the following documents involving Thomas Pike which name him as a Newfoundland Planter, Mariner, and Merchant at various times.

PIKE, Thomas (I5840)
 
3003 The National Archives contains the Will of Thomas Pike the Younger of Poole Mariner dated 4 April 1737 and proved November 13 1740 (PROB-11-706-88). This Will identifies his wife as Elizabeth, and his father as Thomas Pike. It is reasonable to conclude Thomas Pike the Younger of Poole Mariner is the deceased son Thomas with wife Elizabeth mentioned in the Will of Thomas Pike of Poole Merchant dated 29 March 1741 (PROB-11-710-990).

Ancestry’s Dorset, England, Church of England Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials, 1538-1812 does not record a burial for Thomas Pike between 1737 and 1740 at Saint James, Poole, Dorset. Perhaps Thomas Pike did not die in or near Poole, and/or he drowned and his body was not recovered. 
PIKE, Thomas (I5878)
 
3004 The National Archives contains the Will of Young Green of Poole Merchant dated 19 November 1751 (PROB-11-791-180). Young Green’s Will identifies his wife Susanna; his sons John and Young; his daughters Elizabeth, Martha, Susanna, Mary, Anne, and Sarah; his late father John Green; and his brother in law and partner John Pike. It is reasonable to conclude this Young Green is the husband of Susanna Pike, daughter of Thomas Pike and Elizabeth unknown. GREEN, Young (I5886)
 
3005 The National Archives records the Will of Margarett Card of Portsmouth Widow dated August 25 1718 (PROB-11-570-181). This Will bequeaths to and names as Executor Margarett Card’s "kinsman William Pike of Portsmouth aforesaid Cooper”. See Notes for William Pike, husband of Ann Bird and Ann Wyatt, for conclusion this William Pike is the son of Thomas Pike and Susanna Bird. William Pike is Margarett Card’s nephew.

Kinsman or kinswoman indicates a blood relative.

Margarett Card’s Will bequeaths to her "kinswoman Mary Lambert". Mary Lambert is the married daughter of Thomas Pike and Susanna Bird. Mary Lambert is Margarett Card’s niece.

Margarett Card’s Will bequeaths to her "kinsman John Pike". Thomas Pike and Susanna Bird have a son John who is Margarett Card’s nephew.

The only other beneficiary is "kinswoman Margarett Pike".

The National Archives records the Will of Thomas Pike of Poole Mariner dated March 20 1703/04 (PROB-11-499-36). This Will states Thomas Pike and his wife Susanna have 3 daughters. One of these is Mary who married an unknown Lambert.

It is reasonable to conclude one of the two other daughters is "kinswoman Margarett Pike" in Margarett Card’s Will.

Based on the Will of Margarett Card of Portsmouth Widow, Margaret Pike marries after August 25 1718. 
PIKE, Margaret (I5862)
 
3006 The National Probate Calendar for England and Wales (1858 to 1966) in Ancestry contains the following entry for Hannah Plowman:

25 July 1881: The Will of Hannah Plowman formerly of Fortis Green in the Parish of Hornsey but late of Ballards-lane Finchley both in the County of Middlesex Widow who died 4 April 1881 at Ballards-lane was proved at the Principal Registry by Mary Ann Legg of Dantzic House Finchley Widow the daughter the sole Executrix.

Mary Ann, daughter of Mark Plowman and Hannah Pavitt, married James Legg in 1844.

3007 The Newfoundland Ancestor Volume 7 No. 4 (Issued 1991 Winter) contains Burgeo Church of England Burials transcribed by Leslie A. Winsor for those older than 50 (on pages 165-166) with the following burial record:

Hatcher, Grace 1886 06 23 79 yrs Ramea

This Grace Hatcher's date of and age at death correspond to the years stated in Bill Crant's post below regarding the Harris and Hatcher families for Grace Hatcher who married James Harris.

However, as the Widow Grace Hatcher married James Harris in 1849, Grace's burial would record her as Grace Harris, not Grace Hatcher.

The following post from Bill Crant on January 19 2002 offers information regarding James Harris' marriage to the widow Grace Hatcher (located at: http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/NFLD-LAB/2002-01/1011470151.)

HATCHER

Like many of the people who first settled in Ramea GEORGE HATCHER was a native of Dorset. He came to Newfoundland as an employee of Newman and Co. After some time he married and settled in Furby's Cove where his three oldest children were born. Sometime after 1837 he and his family came up the coast and settled at Ramea. Unfortunately George died in 1848 while still a young man.

3008 The Newfoundland Ancestor Volume 7 No. 4 (Issued 1991 Winter) contains Burgeo Church of England Burials transcribed by Leslie A. Winsor for those older than 50 (on pages 165-166) with the following burial records:

Crew, Ann 1886 08 09 66 yrs Upper Burgeo
Crew 1867 08 19 72 yrs Hunts

Ann Crew who died in 1886 was born about 1820. However, Sarah, daughter of William and Ann Crewe, was born about 1832 and Ann, daughter of William and Ann Crewe, was born about 1835 (based on the ages recorded on their Death Registrations). So, it is unlikely (unless her age is incorrect) for Ann Crew who died in 1886 to be the wife of William Crewe.

The unknown Crew who died in 1867 was born about 1795. Martin, son of William and Ann Crewe, was born June 5 1847. This unknown Crew was about 52 years old in 1847 when Martin, son of William and Ann Crewe, was born. So, she seems unlikely to be the wife of William Crewe. 
UNKNOWN, Ann (I2461)
 
3009 The Newfoundland and Labrador GenWeb records Strattan Parsons Shipwright in Bears Cove in the 1864 Hutchinson’s Directory for Harbour Grace.

Stretton Parsons does not appear in any later Directories.

Gertrude Crosbie’s Births, Deaths and Marriages in Newfoundland Newspapers 1810-1890 records the death of Stretton Parsons age 81 with Reference Date July 29 1876, implying a year of birth about 1794-1795. He is a strong candidate to be the son of Charles Parsons and Susannah Pike. 
PARSONS, Stretton Thoresby (I6142)
 
3010 The Newfoundland's Grand Banks transcription for Richard Horwood's tombstone in the Bethany Methodist Church Cemetery in Carbonear includes the following comment: "born at Carbonear; shipwright & master mariner".

The Maritime History Archive website has published Keith Matthews Name Files, 1500-1850. They include the following for Richard Horwood.

1. 1819 Nov Richard Horwood, Robert Horwood, and Reueben (sic) Small of Moretons Harbour; planters. Fortitude - Richard Horwood Captain 74 ton, built Exploits by Richard Horwood.

2. 1821 Richard Horwood at Mortons Hr built "Ann" 50 ton for Ann McCarthy widow of Crockers Cove.

3. 1825 Dec Richard Horwood and Robert Horwood Carbonear Planters registered Venus 51 ton, Richard Horwood Captain. Built Brigus 1807; r/b (rebuilt?) Mortons Hr by Richard Horwood 
HORWOOD, Richard (I2642)
 
3011 The Nova Scotia Archives has the following Land Petition from Peter LeBlanc:

1821: Petition to Kempt: Petitioner, age 23, a native of Cape Breton, is married and has one child. He asks a lot north of the Mancoleur, between the lots of Galatin and Maturan LeBlanc. Note: 25 acres, Little Arichat.

There is only one Peter LeBlanc recorded in the 1813 Militia Roll for Isle Madame, namely Peter LeBlanc age 17 born Cape Breton Mariner with no Women, Boys, or Girls. Given Peter's age and his request for a lot between Gaetan LeBlanc and Mathurin LeBlanc, it is reasonable to conclude this Peter LeBlanc is the son of Mathurin LeBlanc recorded in the 1811 Census.

Ancestry's 1871 Census of Arichat records Peter LeBlanc age 73 Ship Master and wife Barbara age 73, residing in the same dwelling as Isidore LeBlanc age 33 Ship Master and his wife Seraphine age 33.

Ancestry's 1881 Census of Arichat records Peter LeBlance (sic) age 83 Widowed Mariner residing with Isidore LeBlance (sic) age 42 Mariner and his wife Saraphine (sic) age 43.

Ancestry's Acadia, Canada, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1757-1946 records the marriage of Isidore LeBlanc, son of Pierre LeBlanc and Barbe Landry, and Seraphine Babin, daughter of Simon Babin and Eliza Coste, on January 9 1860 in Arichat.

Peter LeBlanc's consistence in age in the 1871 and 1881 Censuses (implying a year of birth about 1797-1798) make it reasonable to conclude he is the son of Mathurin LeBlanc.

There is an inconsistency in Pierre LeBlanc's Arichat burial record in which he is recorded as being "age de quatre vingt treize ans" (i.e. 93 years old). Perhaps this was an error in the entry which should have been "quatre vingt trois ans". 
LEBLANC, Pierre (I4915)
 
3012 The Nova Scotia Archives has the following Land Petitions from Moses LeBlanc:

1809: Petition to Nepean: Petitioner was born in St. Malo, France, 44 years ago, and came to this country 35 years ago. He has lived in Arichat 25 years, 20 years on the lot he now occupies on the north shore of Arichat Harbour, adjoining the land of Victor LeBlanc. He took the Oath of Allegiance in Arichat in 1793, is married and has seven children. He asks a title to the land he occupies. Note: Recommended for a grant.

1815: Petition to Swayne, 1815: Petitioner, age 50, a native of St. Malo, France, has lived in Cape Breton forty years. He has a wife and seven children. In 1800 he deposited 8 to pay the expenses of a grant of the lot on which he lives at Arichat, which lease he did not obtain. He asks a grant of the lot and also of a wood lot on Dor'mant Lake. Report of Crawley to Crowdy: 56 acres on the north side of Arichat Harbour. Plan.

The 1811 Census of Arichat records Moses LeBlanc with 3 Males 14 to 60, 3 Females 14 to 60, no Male or Female over 60, 1 Male under 14, 2 Females under 14, and 7 Unmarried Males or Females. Thus, the Census includes Moses, his wife Martha Godin dit Bellefontaine, and their 7 children.

The 1813 Militia Roll for Greater Arichat records Moses LeBlanc with 1 Woman, 1 Boy, and 4 Girls. Immediately below Moses LeBlanc is Anselin (sic) LeBlanc age 20 born Cape Breton Mariner with no Women, Boys, or Girls. It is reasonable to believe Anselin (sic) is one of the 2 Males 14 to 60 residing with Moses in 1811. 
LEBLANC, Moises Jean (I4941)
 
3013 The Nova Scotia Archives has the following petition from Homer Mombourquet in 1816:

Petition to Ainslie: Petitioner, age 50, a native of Cape Breton, has a wife and ten children. His family has lived in Lardoise since 1765. He asks a lot "at the bottom of the Three Island Bay". Note: granted. 
MOMBOURQUETTE, Omer (I1042)
 
3014 The obituary for Jacob Hobbs of Heart's Delight was published in the St. John's Daily News on June 15, 1920 and is as follows:

There passed peacefully away at Heart's Delight on May 28th Jacob HOBBS, in his 68th year. Deceased had been unwell for the past year and the death of his wife three months ago so greatly added to his sorrow and suffering, that he gradually grew weaker until death came on the date mentioned. He was buried on May 30th in the C. of E. Cemetery by the Rev. E. M. BISHOP and attended by the members of the S. U. F. Lodge, of which he was a member for the past thirty-five years. His younger days were spent in seafaring, having sailed different parts of the world. Owing to ill health during later years he spent most of his time at home. He leaves to mourn three sons, Robert, agent with the Reid Nfld. Co. at Heart's Delight; George of the postal telegraphs, Brigus Junction, and Stephen of the Western Union Telegraphs Co., Heart's Content, and five daughters, Mrs. Joshua CHISLETT and Mrs. Jacob BRYANT of Islington; Mrs. WARREN of Heart's Content, Mrs. Walter REID of Heart's Delight and Mimy of the Postal Telegraphs at the same place; also two brothers and a sister, and a large number of friends. The community extends its sincere sympathy to the bereaved family in their sorrow.

Transcript of Obituary available on Newfoundland's Grand Banks website.

3015 The only information known about Sarah Collin, first wife of Hugh McCluskey, comes from their marriage record in 1862. COLLIN, Sarah (I33)
 
3016 The only Josse's in the 1811 Census of Isle Madame, River Bourgeois, ’L'Ardoise, and St. Peter's reside in ’D'Escousse. The 1811 Census of ’D'Escousse records the following Josse's (together and in this order):

1. Frances Josse (Senior) Yeoman with 2 Males and Females Over 60, and no Unmarried Males or Females
2. Frances Josse (Junior) Yeoman with 1 Male 14-60, 3 Females 14-60, 2 Males under 14, 1 Female under 14, and 5 Unmarried Males or Females
3. Joseph Josse Mariner with 2 Males 14-60, 1 Female 14-60, 1 Male under 14, 5 Females under 14, and 7 Unmarried Males or Females
4. John Josse Fisherman with 1 Male 14-60, 2 Females 14-60, 3 Males under 14, 2 Females under 14, and 6 Unmarried Males or Females

Joseph Josse Mariner is the only Joseph Josse in the 1811 Census of Isle Madame, River Bourgeois, ’L'Ardoise, and St. Peter's.

The 1813 Militia Roll for ’D'Escousse records the following married Josse’s:

1. Joseph Josse age 47 born Cape Breton Fisherman with 1 Woman, 1 Boy, and 5 Girls
2. John Josse age 53 born Cape Breton Mariner with 1 Woman, 2 Boy, and 3 Girls
3. Francis Josse age 52 born NS Fisherman with 1 Woman, 3 Boy, and 3 Girls

Immediately following is Joseph Josse age 47 is Joseph Josse age 18 born Cape Breton Fisherman with no Women, Boys, or Girls. It is reasonable to conclude Joseph Josse age 18 is the son of Joseph Josse age 47, and the second Male 14-60 with Joseph Josse in the 1811 Census. Joseph Josse age 18 is born about 1795. Although he may not be the oldest child of Joseph Marie Josse and Anne Landry, it does indicate they married before about 1795.

Nova Scotia Archives contains the following Land Petitions from John (Josse) Joice:

Petition to Fitzherbert, 1815: Petitioner, age 54 a native of Cape Breton, has three sons and three daughters. He asks a lot adjoining the one he now occupies, which he wishes for a place to cure fish. The lot has been in the possession of Peter Giroir, who is now deranged "strolling about the country as a madman", and his family dispersed. Note: postponed.

Petition to Ainslie, 1818: Petitioner was born at Louisbourg, is 57 years old, his wife and four children reside with him at Descousse. He asks a grant of a lot he has held by crown lease since 1804, 270 acres, and of which his brother, Joseph, occupies a part. Report of Crawley to Ward: 273 acres at Descousse near the entrance of Lenox Passage, to be called "Retribution". Plan.

Given John Josse’s name, age, and residence in D'Escousse and the presence of Peter Giroir Mariner in the 1811 Census of D'Escousse as the second family following John Josse Fisherman; it is reasonable to conclude:

1. The Petitioner is John Josse recorded in the 1811 Census of ’D'Escousse and the 1813 Militia Roll for ’D'Escousse
2. Joseph Josse and John Josse recorded in the 1811 Census of ’D'Escousse and the 1813 Militia Roll for ’D'Escousse are brothers

Joseph Josse's age 47 in the 1813 Militia Roll for ’D'Escousse implies a year of birth about 1765-1766. John Josse's age 53 in the 1813 Militia Roll for ’D'Escousse, age 54 in the 1815 Land Petition, and age 57 in the 1818 Land Petition implies a year of birth about 1759-1761.

It is reasonable to conclude:
1. Joseph Josse is Joseph Marie Josse, son of Guillaume Josse and Cécile Préjean, born August 15 1767
2. John Josse is Janvier Josse, son of Guillaume Josse and Marie Dugas, born January 1 1763

3019 The Picard Surname Homepage website (at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~picard/Index.html) records the following information about Pierre Gareman dit LePicard:

According to James Carten of the Acadien-Cajun-L@rootsweb.com Mailing List:

Madeleine Charlot was also captured by the Hurons, 05-05-1660. She got away, but was dangerously wounded, dying later.

This is inconsistent with the Dictionnaire Généalogique des Familles du Québec (Page 464) which records Madeleine Charlot dying before January 29 1652 in Québec. 
CHARLOT, Madelaine (I4588)
 
3020 The Picard Surname Homepage website (at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~picard/Index.html) records the following information regarding Charles Gareman, son of Pierre Gareman dit LePicard:

According to James Carten of the Acadien-Cajun-L@rootsweb.com Mailing List:

The Jesuit Journal tells us that on the 10-06-1653 the Onieda tribe of the Iroquois attacked Cap Rouge. They took three captives, a young man Hugues le Cousturier, Pierre Gareman and his ten year old son, Charles. Captive children were raised as members of the tribe. This is what they did with Charles Gareman. Charles married an Onieda woman named Marie Gonnentenne and was living in an Onieda village, upstream from Québec in 1677. That year he took his daughter Louise to Québec for baptism. He left her with the Ursuline nuns. Louise died there in 1683. Nothing more is known of Charles Gareman.

In the Histoire De Notre-Dame de Ste. Foy, the priest H.-A. Scott writes (pp. 295-296): "the 10-06-1653, ... Pierre Gareman, called the Picard, had a consequence even more sad, as he was taken alive with his son Charles, of eight years, ... Charles owes his life to his young age and was later released." Effectively, in the autumn of 1655, the Jesuits bought him from the Onneyouts. In 1676, Charles will wed Marie Gonnentenne, of which the daughter Louise, god-daughter of Frontenac, will die at the Ursulines in 1683.

3021 The Pike Family Trees in the "Everitt Collection" at the Portsmouth Central Library in Hampshire, England do not record a John Pike as the son of John Pike and unknown wife. PIKE, John (I5924)
 
3022 The Pike Family Trees in the "Everitt Collection" at the Portsmouth Central Library, in Hampshire, England do not record a William Pike as a son of John Pike and unknown wife.

The Will of Susanna Lee of Portsmouth Widow dated 28 May 1798 bequeaths to the "children alive at my decease of my late brother William Pike”. So, William Pike died before May 28 1798, but married and had children.

Ancestry’s Dorset, England, Church of England Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1538-1812 records the following marriages of a William Pike in St James, Poole between 1730 and 1790:

1. William Pike and Ann Wise on January 23 1739 (Image 1035 of 1508).
2. William Pike and Mary Jarvis, both of Poole, on March 29 1764 (Image 1450 of 1508). Both William Pike and Mary Jarvis made their mark, rather than signing their names. It is unlikely this William Pike is the son of John Pike and unknown wife.
3. William Pike Sojourner Batchelor and Hannah Brixey of this Parish Spinster on March 23 1785 (Image 226 of 1508). Both William Pike and Hannah Brixey made their mark, rather than signing their names. It is unlikely this William Pike is the son of John Pike and unknown wife.

There are several other William Pike marriages in Dorset, but outside of Poole, during this period.

Ancestry’s England & Wales, Non-Conformist and Non-Parochial Registers, 1567-1970 records the baptism of John Wise born November 8 1742, son of Will’m and Ann Pike, baptized February 20 1744 at Skinner Street Independent, Poole (image 7 of 30). It is reasonable to believe the parents are William Pike and Ann Wise who married in 1739.

William Pike, husband of Ann Wise, is the best candidate in Poole to be the son of John Pike and unknown wife.

Ancestry’s Dorset, England, Church of England Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1538-1812 records the following burials of a William Pike in St James, Poole in or before 1798:

1. Wm Pike February 10 1735 (Image 1045 of 1508)
2. William Pike an Infant January 22 1749 (Image 1127 of 1508)
3. William Pyke December 24 1782 (Image 1144 of 1508)
4. William Pike November 23 1795 (Image 1320 of 1508)

It is unlikely William Pike, brother of Susanna (Pike) Lee, died in 1735 and was named in her Will almost 65 years later. The William Pike’s buried in 1782 and 1795 are candidates. Unfortunately no ages or other information are recorded.

The National Archives does not probate a Will for a William Pike between 1725 and 1825 who is William Pike, son of John Pike and unknown wife. The National Archives records 7 Wills for William Pike’s; including 3 Wills in Middlesex, 2 Wills in Berkshire, and the Will of William Pike, husband of Ann Bird and Ann Wyatt, in Portsmouth, Hampshire. The other Will is for William Pike late of Portsmouth and now of Limington, Southampton dated October 5 1752. But this Will names his sisters as Jane Sheppard, wife of Joseph Sheppard, and Mary Markham; and so he is not the son of John Pike and unknown wife. 
PIKE, William (I5925)
 
3023 The Pike Family Trees in the "Everitt Collection" at the Portsmouth Central Library, in Hampshire, England record "Capt Francis Pike of Newport IW" as the son of John Pike and unknown wife. This is the only information recorded.

My research has so far not confirmed whether or not "Capt Francis Pike of Newport IW" is the son of John Pike and unknown wife. See the following research summary.

David Pike's Family History & Genealogy Resources website records a transcript of the Will of Francis Pike of Newport, Isle of Wight, Gentleman dated 1 October 1805 and proved 15 June 1811. Francis Pike’s Will bequeaths to:

- "my daughter Ann Moore wife of William James FitzGeorge Moore Esquire Captain"
- "my son Francis Pike"
- "Mary Pike now of Newport aforesaid Widow of John Pike deceased"
- "Susannah Blackford now of Newport Widow of Joseph Blackford deceased"
- "Mary Cheverton Widow of Thomas Cheverton late of Alvington in the Isle of Wight deceased"
- "Jane Usher and Maria Cheverton daughters of the said Mary Cheverton"

Francis Pike’s Will names friends James Kirkpatrick of Newport Esquire and George Young of Ramsdown in the Isle of Wight Gentleman as Executors.

Unfortunately, Francis Pike’s 1805 Will does not provide any obvious connections to the family of John Pike and unknown wife. Francis Pike’s approximate year of birth about 1721 is consistent with being the son of John Pike and unknown wife.

It is reasonable to believe Francis Pike likely married on or after the age of 20. So, it is reasonable to believe the earliest Francis Pike would have married was about 1740.

Ancestry’s Dorset, England, Church of England Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials, 1538-1812 records the following marriages for a Francis Pike after 1740:

1. Francis Pike and Mary Catheridge on May 1 1741 at St James, Poole (Image 1101 of 1508)

2. Francis Pike and Ann Dean of Margaret Marsh on November 8 1742 at Iwerne Minster (Image 5 of 110). Iwerne Minster is 17 miles northwest of Poole.

3. Banns for Francis Pike and Elisabeth Shippard, both of this parish at St James, Poole. Third banns on October 23 1757 (Image 401 of 1508). There is no record of this marriage at St James, Poole.

4. Francis Pike of this Town and Sarah Righted of the same on July 22 1759 at St James, Poole (image 1413 of 1508). As Francis Pike makes his mark rather than signing, it is unlikely he is the son of John Pike and unknown wife. Francis Pike, testator of the Will of Francis Pike of Newport, Isle of Wight, is recorded as a Gentleman and undoubtedly knew how to write his name.

None, one, or several of these marriages may be for Francis Pike, son of John Pike and unknown wife.

Ancestry’s Dorset, England, Church of England Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials, 1538-1812 records the following baptisms for children of a Francis Pike after 1740.

1. Elizabeth, daughter of Francis Pike [no wife recorded], baptized December 27 1742 at Shaftesbury (Image 140 of 236). Shaftesbury is 22 miles northwest of Poole.

2. John, son of Francis and Mary Pike, baptized August 20 1746 at Saint James, Poole (Image 1055 of 1508)

3. Susanna, daughter of Francis and Mary Pike, baptized May 5 1751 at Saint James, Poole (Image 1059 of 1508)

Some of these may be children of Francis Pike, son of John Pike and unknown wife.

The following events (in chronological order) may involve those named in Francis Pike’s Will:

1. Marriage allegation for Thomas Cheverton of Newchurch Yeoman age 27 Bachelor and Mary Wavell of Newport age 24 Spinster on December 24 1765 (Ancestry’s Hampshire, England, Allegations for Marriage Licences, 1689-1837 Volume 1 Page 147 Image 151 of 557). Thomas Cheverton was born about 1738 and Mary Wavell about 1741. Newchurch is on the Isle of Wight.

2. Burial of Mary Pike, wife of Frans Pike, on July 31 1782 in Newport (FamilySearch’s England, Hampshire Bishop’s Transcripts 1680-1892). No age or other information is recorded.

3. Marriage of Francis Pike Widowed and Anne Wavell Single on July 31 1783 at Newport, Hampshire, England (FamilySearch’s England, Hampshire Parish Registers, 1538-1980). The FreeReg website also records this marriage, but does not record Anne Wavell’s marital status.

4. Baptism of Frans (sic) Carter Pike (male) born May 4 1784, son of Francis Pike and Anne Wavell Pike, baptized June 4 1784 (FamilySearch’s Isle of Wight Parish Registers, 1538-1983). No location is recorded. FamilySearch’s England, Hampshire Parish Registers, 1538-1980 also records this baptism with a location of Newport.

5. Baptism of Edward born August 18 1785, son of Francis and Ann Pike, baptized September 27 1785. (FamilySearch’s Isle of Wight Parish Registers, 1538-1983). FamilySearch’s England, Hampshire Parish Registers, 1538-1980 also records this baptism with a location of Newport.

6. Baptism of Anne Orrill born June 3 1788, daughter of Francis Pike and Anne Wavell on March 6 1789 on Isle of Wight (FamilySearch’s Isle of Wight Parish Registers, 1538-1983). FamilySearch’s England, Hampshire Parish Registers, 1538-1980 also records this baptism with a location of Newport.

7. Marriage of Joseph Blackford and Susan Pike on April 22 1793 in Newport, Hampshire, England (FamilySearch’s England, Hampshire Parish Registers, 1538-1980). This marriage is also recorded in FamilySearch’s England, Isle of Wight Parish Registers, 1538-1983 but with the groom’s surname as Blachford. The FreeReg website also records the groom’s surname as Blachford. Only transcripts are available, not images of original documents.

8. Burial of Anna Pike age 51 on July 7 1799 in Newport (FamilySearch’s England, Hampshire Bishop’s Transcripts 1680-1892). Anna Pike was born about 1747-1748.

9. Burial of Edward Pike age 16 on August 9 1801 in Newport (FamilySearch’s England, Hampshire Bishop’s Transcripts 1680-1892). Edward Pike was born about 1784-1785.

10. Marriage of William Moore and Anne Orrell Pike on September 25 1805 in Carisbrooke, Hampshire (FamilySearch’s England, Hampshire Parish Registers, 1538-1980). This marriage is also recorded in FamilySearch’s England, Isle of Wight Parish Registers, 1538-1983, but only recorded as occurring on the Isle of Wight. Carisbrooke is a village on the outskirts of Newport.

11, Burial of Francis Pike age 88 on January 18 1810 in Newport (FamilySearch’s England, Hampshire Parish Registers, 1538-1980). This burial is also recorded in FamilySearch’s England Deaths and Burials, 1538-1991 and records Francis Pike as a Widower. This is the only burial of a Francis Pike recorded in FamilySearch’s England Deaths and Burials, 1538-1991 or in FamilySearch’s England, Hampshire Parish Registers, 1538-1980. This burial implies Francis Pike was born about 1721.

It is reasonable to conclude:

1. The burial of Francis Pike age 88 Widower on January 18 1810 in Newport, Isle of Wight is for Francis Pike of Newport testator of the Will dated 1 October 1805 and proved 15 June 1811. Francis Pike was born about 1721, and could be the son of someone baptized in 1687.

2. Francis Pike of Newport, testator of the Will dated 1 October 1805, married Anne Wavell in 1783 at Newport. Francis Pike was widowed and Anne Wavell was a spinster.

3. Francis Pike and Anne Wavell had a son Francis Carter Pike born 1784 in Newport and a daughter Anne Orrill Pike born 1788 in Newport. Daughter Anne Orrill Pike married William Moore in 1805 in Carisbrooke, a village on the outskirts of Newport. This accounts for daughter Ann Moore and son Francis Pike named in Francis Pike’s 1805 Will.

4. Mary Cheverton, widow of Thomas Cheverton, named in Francis Pike’s 1805 Will is Mary Wavell of Newport. Her marriage allegation with Thomas Cheverton in 1765 indicates she was born about 1741 and a spinster. Anne Wavell who was married in Newport and Mary Wavell of Newport, the two Wavell’s named in Francis Pike’s 1805 Will, are related which explains why Mary (Wavell) Cheverton is included in Francis Pike’s 1805 Will. Mary (Wavell) Cheverton was born about 1741. Anne (Wavell) Pike’s children were born in 1784, 1785, and 1788; she may be a younger sister or perhaps niece of Mary (Wavell) Cheverton.

5. Anne Wavell, wife of Francis Pike, is not mentioned in Francis Pike’s 1805 Will. This indicates she died between the birth of her last known child Anne Orrill on June 3 1788 and Francis Pike’s Will dated October 1 1805. There is only one burial of an Anne (or variant spelling) Pike buried in Newport during this period; namely Anna Pike age 51 buried July 7 1799.

6. Anna Pike age 51 buried July 7 1799 in Newport is the wife of Francis Pike. Anna Pike was born about 1747-1748. FamilySearch’s Births and Christenings 1538-1975 record the baptisms of Mary Wavel on December 17 1744 and Ann Wavell on February 9 1745, both in Shorwell, Isle of Wight and daughters of William and Mary Wavell. These sisters are the wives of Thomas Cheverton and Francis Pike respectively. Ann Wavell baptized in 1745 would be age 54 in 1799, fairly consistent with the burial of Anna Pike age 51 buried July 7 1799. Mary Wavell baptized in 1744 would be age 21, consistent with her age of 21 at the marriage allegation of Mary Wavell and Thomas Cheverton in 1765.

7. Edward Pike age 16 buried August 9 1801 in Newport is the son of Francis Pike and Anne Wavell. His death explains his absence from Francis Pike’s 1805 Will.

It is reasonable to believe:

1. Francis Pike’s Will dated October 1 1805 bequeaths to Susannah Blackford now of Newport Widow of Joseph Blackford. Francis Pike’s relationship to Susannah Blackford is not stated in his Will. Susan Pike who married Joseph Blackford (or Blachford) on April 22 1793 at Newport is in Francis Pike’s Will because she is his daughter with a previous wife.

2. Francis Pike’s Will dated October 1 1805 bequeaths to Mary Pike now of Newport aforesaid Widow of John Pike. Francis Pike’s relationship to John and Mary Pike is not stated in his Will. It is unlikely Mary Pike’s maiden surname is also Pike. Mary Pike is in Francis Pike’s Will because she is the widow of John Pike who is Frances Pike’s son with a previous wife.

3. The burial of Mary Pike, wife of Francis Pike, on July 31 1782 in Newport is for the wife of Francis Pike testator of the Will dated 1 October 1805. Francis Pike’s previous wife died before his marriage to Anne Wavell on July 31 1783 at Newport. Remarkably, this marriage occurred exactly one year after the burial of Mary Pike, wife of Francis Pike. There would be more certainty if there was evidence for the name of Francis Pike’s previous wife and/or if Mary Pike’s age at death was recorded at her burial.

Based on these 3 beliefs, Francis Pike married a Mary, and had a son John and daughter Susannah old enough to be married before 1805.

Ancestry’s Dorset, England, Church of England Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials, 1538-1812 records the following events as described above:

1. Marriage of Francis Pike and Mary Catheridge on May 1 1741 at St James, Poole (Image 1101 of 1508)

2. Baptism of John, son of Francis and Mary Pike, on August 20 1746 at Saint James, Poole (Image 1055 of 1508)

3. Baptism of Susanna, daughter of Francis and Mary Pike, on May 5 1751 at Saint James, Poole (Image 1059 of 1508)

Is there evidence for the dates of birth of Susanna Pike, wife of Joseph Blachford, and John Pike, wife of Mary unknown? If they both have dates of birth consistent with John and Susanna, children of Francis and Mary Pike, it is reasonable to believe they are children of Frances Pike and Mary Catheridge.

FamilySearch (Film 4626938 Images 1807-1809 of 2266) records a certified copy of the Will of Susanna Blatchford Widow of Plymouth Dock, Devon dated November 13 1822 and proved July 3 1827. Her Will describes property in Holne and Ipplepen both in Devon, and bequeaths her entire estate to her son in law William Furneaux Cordwainer of Plymouth Dock who is also named as the sole Executor. Within the Will, her surname is also spelled Blachford. Plymouth Dock was renamed Stoke Damerel in the 1820’s and includes Devonport. The cover page refers to Susanna Blachford late of Devonport Devon Widow and William Furneaux of Churston Ferrers Devon Cordwainer.

To find this Will in FamilySearch, select Search > Catalog > Keywords and enter "wills diocese exeter". From the resulting list, choose "Wills for the Diocese of Exeter (County of Devon), 1812-1857" (which is currently the first entry) and then Film 4626938.

FamilySearch’s England, Devon, Parish Registers, 1538-1912, records an image of the burial of Susanna Blatchford age 73 of John Street on July 11 1824 in Stoke Damerel, Devon. This is the only burial of a Susanna Blachford (or variant spelling) recorded between 1822 and 1827 in FamilySearch’s England, Devon, Parish Registers. It is reasonable to conclude she is Susanna Blatchford Widow of Plymouth Dock, Devon whose Will is dated November 13 1822 and proved July 3 1827. This Susanna Blatchford was born about 1750-1751, consistent with the baptism of Susanna, daughter of Francis and Mary Pike, on May 5 1751 at Saint James, Poole.

FamilySearch’s England, Devon, Parish Registers, 1538-1912, records an image of the marriage of William Furneaux Cordwainer and Ann Blatchford Spinster, both of this Parish, on March 28 1822 in Stoke Demerel, Devon (Film 4634206 Image 104 of 396).

I have not found evidence that Joseph Blackford and Susan Pike who married on April 22 1793 in Newport had a daughter Ann (who would be born between 1793 and 1805). Further research into William Furneaux and Ann Blatchford did not identify a connection to Francis Pike Gentleman of Newport. The 1851 (Stoke Demerel, Devon), 1861 (St Andrew, Devon), and 1871 Census (Plymouth, Devon) entries for Ann M Furneaux Widow identify her as born about 1794-1796 in Hatfield, Hertford. There is no available record of an Ann Blachford (or variant spelling) born in Hertford between 1793 and 1805.

There is insufficient current evidence to conclude or believe the Will of Susanna Blatchford Widow of Plymouth Dock, Devon dated November 13 1822 is for the believed daughter of Francis Pike Gentleman of Newport. Only their names and approximate years of birth are consistent.

FamilySearch’s Isle of Wight Parish Registers, 1538-1983 records the burial of John Pike on May 9 1789 in Newport. No age or other information is recorded to identify his date of birth or to establish a connection to Francis Pike of Newport who wrote the 1805 Will. Francis Pike’s 1805 Will bequeaths to "Mary Pike now of Newport aforesaid Widow of John Pike". The "now of Newport" may indicate John Pike, son of Francis Pike, died somewhere other than Newport or the Isle of Wight and widow Mary then moved to Newport. There are a lot of John Pike’s buried in England between 1765 and 1805 with little or no information recorded to distinguish them.

FamilySearch’s England, Hampshire Parish Registers, 1538-1980 records the marriage of John Pyke (or Pike) Widowed and Mary Sibley Single on May 2 1793 in Newport. This is not John Pike, son of Francis Pike.

FamilySearch’s Isle of Wight Parish Registers, 1538-1983 records the baptism of Robert, son of John and Mary Pike, on December 25 1808 on Isle of Wight. FamilySearch’s England, Hampshire Parish Registers, 1538-1980 also records this baptism with a location of Newport. John Pike, son of Francis Pike, died before Francis Pike’s 1805 Will and well before the baptism of Robert, son of John and Mary Pike. So, there were 2 John and Mary Pike families in Newport, Isle of Wight in the 1790’s and early 1800’s. 
PIKE, Francis (I5922)
 
3024 The Pike Family Trees in the "Everitt Collection" at the Portsmouth Central Library, in Hampshire, England record "Moses Pike D[ied] July 1813" as the son of John Pike and unknown wife. It also records he had a daughter Elizabeth Pike who was alive in 1840.

FamilySearch’s England, Hampshire Parish Registers, 1538-1980 records the burial of a Moses Pike age 34 on August 1 1813 in Portsmouth, Hampshire. This is FamilySearch’s only burial of a Moses Pike who died in 1813 in England (i.e. as searched through all Historical Records). This Moses Pike was born about 1779 which is after the death of father John Pike in or before 1773.

The Will of John Carter of West Bourn (sic), Sussex but late of Portsmouth, Southampton Esqr dated 1 March 1786 (PROB-11-499-36) includes a Codicil dated 3 March 1791 which bequeaths to "Mrs Susan Lee twenty guineas to be applied as she shall think proper to the use of the two daughters of her brother Moses Pike". So, Moses Pike has 2 daughters living in 1791.

Ancestry’s Dorset, England, Church of England Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1538-1812 does not record a marriage for a Moses Pike between 1730 and 1812, or a burial for a Moses Pike between 1798 and 1812.

FamilySearch’s England Marriages, 1538-1973 and FamilySearch’s England, Hampshire Parish Registers, 1538-1980 both record only one marriage of a Moses Pike between 1730 and 1812 (although with slightly different information); namely Moses Pike and Elisabeth Tilsed Single on February 7 1758 in St Mary, Portsea, Hampshire.

Ancestry’s Hampshire, England, Allegations for Marriage Licences, 1689-1837 does not record a marriage allegation for a Moses Pike.

Neither the National Archives nor Ancestry’s Dorset, England, Wills and Probates, 1565-1858 records a Will for a Moses Pike between 1798 and 1850.

FamilySearch’s England, Hampshire Parish Registers, 1538-1980 records only one burial for a Moses Pike in addition to that above; namely Moses Pike buried January 14 1810 in Portsea, Hampshire. No age or other information is recorded.

FamilySearch’s England Births and Christenings, 1538-1975 records the baptism of Moses, son of Moses Pike [mother not recorded], baptized September 2 1764 in St Mary, Portsea, Hampshire.

FamilySearch’s England, Hampshire Parish Registers, 1538-1980 records the baptism of Moses, son of Moses Pike [mother not recorded], baptized September 2 1769 in Hampshire. This may be a duplicate of the 1764 baptism above, but with a transcription error in the year (i.e. 1769 instead of 1764).

3025 The Poingdestre/Puddester/Puddister Family Tree website (http://www.pudnewfoundland.ca/records/contact.html) records the burial of John Kennedy age 78 of Western Bay on June 7 1878 at Western Bay Methodist. He is the only John Kennedy buried in Western Bay or Blackhead who could be a candidate as the husband of Elizabeth King. But, he is about 16 years older than Elizabeth King. KENNEDY, John (I2629)
 
3026 The Poingdestre/Puddester/Puddister Family Tree website records the burial of 2 John Perry's in its transcription of burials for Western Bay Methodist. The transcription of Blackhead Methodist burials begins in 1883.

1. John Perry age 39 buried March 17 1842, implying a year of birth about 1802
2. John Perry age 53 buried April 4 1869, implying a year of birth about 1815

The Poingdestre/Puddester/Puddister Family Tree website records the marriages of 2 John Perry's in its transcription of marriages for Blackhead Methodist. There are 2 John Perry marriages for Western Bay Methodist, but they occur in 1895 and 1906.

1. John Perry of Western Bay and Jane King of Bradley's Cove married January 22 1824 in Bradley's Cove
2. John Perry of Western Bay and Elizabeth Penny (Widow) of Western Bay married October 14 1836 in Western Bay

It is not reasonable to believe John Perry who died in 1869 is the husband of Jane King as this John Perry was only about 9 years old when Jane King married John Perry.

It is more reasonable to believe John Perry who died in 1842 is the husband of Jane King. The baptism of daughters Elizabeth and Emma place John Perry in Western Bay in 1839, and there were no further children of John Perry and Jane King baptized after 1839.

3027 The Port Hawkesbury Reporter published the following article by Don Boudrot about Isidore LeBlanc on May 14 2017:

Isidore LeBlanc's grandfather, Mathurin LeBlanc, was born in Grand Pré.

He escaped deportation in 1755 and settled in Arichat some 20 years later. At the time, Arichat was a thriving fishing community based on the entrepreneurial efforts of the Robins, a well-known Jersey family who had established a fishing operation on Jerseyman's Island in the 1760's.

Isidore was born on November 30, 1837, the same year that the Notre Dame de ’l'Assomption Church celebrated its first mass. He was the son of Pierre LeBlanc and Barbara Landry.

After attending school at Arichat, Isidore, like his father and grandfather before him, took to the sea. He was 14 years old. For the next 20 years, he travelled the world as Ship's Master to the U.S., Europe, South America, and the West Indies. He even piloted several French war ships between Halifax and Arichat, as well as on the St. Lawrence.

On January 9, 1860 he married Seraphine Babin, daughter of Captain Simon Babin. Isidore and Seraphine had three sons and three daughters who lived to adulthood.

Isidore LeBlanc was a captain, ship owner, politician, merchant, commissions' merchant, shipbroker, agent for underwriters and shipping insurance companies, and a politician. As well, he was a Notary Public, and in 1866, LeBlanc was appointed Justice of the Peace, an indication of his social and financial standing in the community.

By 1870 he had put his days at sea behind him. He established a general store and wharf at the west end of Arichat from which he provisioned ships for about a decade. At the same time he continued to buy and sell ships. In 1875, for example, he commissioned a 410-ton three-masted barque, the County of Richmond, "the largest vessel produced in the southern part of Cape Breton.” LeBlanc was fond of saying in the Legislature that he built the County of Richmond, owned the County of Richmond, and ran the County of Richmond. Not realizing he was referring to his ship, his colleagues were left in amazement.

In 1871 LeBlanc tried his hand at politics, but was unsuccessful in capturing the seat for the Liberals in the Provincial Legislature. Such was not the case in the provincial election of 1878 when he was elected to the House of Assembly as an Independent. At that time, Richmond County was represented by two members; the other was Alexander McCuish. LeBlanc fought tirelessly and passionately for his constituents.

He sat in opposition for four years until the Liberals came to power in 1882. He served on the Executive Council from February 18, 1883 to June 1886, the first Acadian to attain cabinet rank in Nova Scotia. He did not reoffer in the election of 1886. On March 10, 1887, he was appointed to the Legislative Council on which he sat until his death.

3028 The Port Hawkesbury Reporter published the following article by Don Boudrot about Jean Fougère on October 9, 2016:

Fougeres is a town in France on the edge of Brittany, Maine, and Normandy. Its inhabitants are referred to as Fougerais and Fougeraises.

Fougere is also a family name dating back to medieval northwestern France in the region of Brittany. The name is derived from the old French word "fougere” meaning "fern,” perhaps indicating an area heavily grown with the plant of the same name. As is the case with most Acadian surnames, there were numerous variations of the name, probably in excess of 25.

The first Fougere known in North America was Jean Fougere, a native of Poupry, a community 100 miles south of Paris. He reportedly arrived at Port Royal in the Annapolis Valley in 1698. However, his date of birth was about 1685 so these dates may lack some accuracy. What documentation does reveal is that on February 5, 1709 Jean Fougere attended the wedding of Claude Giouard and Elizabeth Blanchard at Port Royal. His name appears in the register as a witness. He would have been around 24 years old at the time.

On November 27, 1713, Jean Fougere and Marie Bourg (Bourque) were married. A Recollet missionary priest, Father Justinian Durand, presided at the ceremony and the witnesses were Abraham Bourg, Pierre Allain, Madeleine Bourg, and Pierre Broussard. Twin girls were born to the young couple but, tragically, died within three months. There ensued three daughters and two sons, all born at Port Royal.

The Port Royal church records show that on April 21, 1715, Marie Bourg, wife of Jean Fougère, was godmother to her niece, Marie-Josèphe Bourq, daughter of Pierre Bourq and Élizabeth Broussard.

In 1715 Jean Fougere's name appears once more in official records on the occasion of his swearing allegiance to King George II of Great Britain as many Acadians did at the time.

Whether there was any connection between this and the Fougeres leaving Port Royal for the French territory, then known as Port Toulouse and later as St. Peter's, is unknown.

Jean Fougere and his family arrived in Port Toulouse in 1722. There were 13 Acadian families there numbering 26 persons. The census of 1724 lists Jean Fougere, a navigator from Orléans with a wife, two sons, three daughters, one servant, and three employees. With one boat Fougere began his fishing business, and within a few years had expanded his work force to eight men. The employer paid the passage from France with the agreement the man would work the designated time in return for board. Often they were badly treated.

Three children were born to Jean and Marie but in 1727 both Marie and Jean, their nine-year-old son, died. A few years later, the widower married Marie-Madeleine Belliveau, daughter of Jean Belliveau and Cécile Melanson. Jean and Marie-Madeleine had 10 children of which three died young. In all Jean Fougere fathered 18 children of whom nine left descendants.

In 1740 Jean Fougere sold his boat, Le St. Jean, to Michel Daccarette, a merchant living in St. Peter's and Dominique Hirard, a naval captain. The transaction was recorded on October 12, 1740. Michel Daccarette died tragically while walking on the ramparts of Louisbourg discussing military strategy during the seige of 1745. He was struck on the head with a cannon-ball and died instantly. His companion was unharmed.

3029 The Portsmouth Cathedral tombstone for Ann Pike, wife of William Pike, states:

In Memory of
Ann wife of Willm Pike
who parted this life the 23rd day
of February 1760 Aged 65 Years
Only the actions of the just
Smell sweet and blossom in the dust

Ancestry’s England & Wales, Non-Conformist and Non-Parochial Registers, 1567-1970 record the baptism of Ann born May 15 1695, daughter of Stephen and Ann Bird, on May 24 1695 at High Street Presbyterian - Unitarian, Portsmouth, Hampshire (Image 13 of 126). She is a strong candidate to be Ann Bird, first wife of William Pike.

FamilySearch’s England Marriages, 1538-1973 records the marriage of Stephen Bird and Anne Lucas on May 26 1672 at Saint Thomas, Portsmouth, Hampshire. This may be the marriage of the parents of Ann Bird born May 24 1695, but seems less likely as Ann Bird’s birth occurred 23 years after this marriage. 
BIRD, Ann (I5870)
 
3030 The revalidation of marriage for Antoine Mombourquet and Charlotte Samson in Father Baillly's Register states Antoine is "de la paroisse st michel". Unfortunately, there is no indication where "la paroisse st michel" is. There are several parishes of St. Michel in Québec, and more in various provinces of France.

Charles A. Samson believes Antoine Mombourquette was born in Bordeaux, France. According to the DGFA (Page xxxiii), there is a St. Michel de Bordeaux Parish.

Other than Firmin Maubourquet in the 1811 Census of Barre a Echoue and Tremien (sic) Manbourquet age 30 in the 1813 Militia Roll for Barachoua, there are no Mombourquette's (or variant spelling) in Isle Madame, St. Peter's, or River Bourgeois in the 1811 Census or 1813 Militia Rolls. All other Mombourquette's in the 1811 Census and 1813 Militia Rolls are in ’L'Ardoise.

There is no record of Antoine Mombourquette, husband of Charlotte Samson, in the 1811 Census. His son, Antoine Mombourquette, husband of Marguerite Fougère, is recorded as a Mariner with 1 Male 14-60, 1 Female 14-60, 3 Males under 14, 1 Female under 14, no Males or Females over 60, and 4 Unmarried Males and Females. The presence of 4 children under 14 and the lack of anyone over 60 confirm this is the family of Antoine Mombourquette and Marguerite Fougère (and not the family of Antoine Mombourquette and Charlotte Samson).

There is no record of Antoine Mombourquette, husband of Charlotte Samson, in the 1813 Militia Roll for L'Ardoise (although he may have been too old for the militia). His son, Antoine Mombourquette, husband of Marguerite Fougère, is recorded as born Cape Breton Farmer with 1 Woman, 2 Boys, and 3 Girls. Again, the presence of 5 children confirm this is the family of Antoine Mombourquette and Marguerite Fougère (and not the family of Antoine Mombourquette and Charlotte Samson).

Only one person over 60 is recorded in the Mombourquette families in the 1811 Census of L'Ardoise, and s/he resides with Joseph Mombourquette. The 1813 Militia Roll for ’L'Ardoise records Joseph Maubourguet age 46 Fisherman with 2 Women, 1 Boy, and 2 Girls.

The presence of 2 Women in 1813 and 1 Male or Female over 60 in 1811 indicates the Male or Female over 60 in 1811 is Female, and may be Joseph Mombourquette's mother Charlotte Samson.

It seems reasonable to conclude Antoine Mombourquette, husband of Charlotte Samson, is in neither the 1811 Census nor the 1813 Militia Roll, and so he died before the 1811 Census. 
MOMBOURQUETTE, Antoine (I746)
 
3031 The Rhode Island Marriage Registration for James Warren Gardner and Freida Mary Caines records Freida's parents as John Caines and Annie Carew.

The Rhode Island Death Certificate for Annie Caines, widow of John Caines, records her date of birth as March 21 1870 and her Father's Last Name as Carewe. No first name is recorded for Annie's Father and no names at all are recorded for her Mother.

The Rhode Island Death Certificate for John Caines records his wife as Annie Carew.

The Rhode Island Death Certificates for Hazel Annie, Olive Martha, and Walter Alfred; children of John and Annie Caines; record Annie's maiden surname as Carew or Carewe.

So, many Rhode Island sources record Annie's maiden surname as Carew.

The Diary of Joseph Small (Burgeo, Newfoundland - 1925) states "John [Caines] married Susie Crewe of Deer Island, daughter of William Crewe". Despite Joseph Small recalling her first name as Susie, this seems to be the John Caines who marries Annie. This Diary identifies Deer Island as Annie's place of birth.

John and Annie's Newfoundland Marriage Registration records Annie's surname as Crew.

The Newfoundland Registers of Vital Statistics for Interdenominational (FamilySearch - Newfoundland, Vital Statistics, 1753-1893) records the birth of Annie, daughter of William and Mary Crewe of Deer Island, on March 21 1870.

So, many Newfoundland sources record Annie's maiden surname as Crewe, and I have chosen this as the preferred spelling for Annie and her family. 
CREWE, Annie (I678)
 
3032 The River That Isn't - A Tale of Survival and Prosperity - River Bourgeois, Cape Breton - 1714 to 1994 contains the following (Page 16):

In 1805, a substantial land grant was issued to residents of the community. It is recorded in a document report to Crawley. It names the following as owners: Peter, John, Belony, and Thomas Landris (Landry), Lewis Bouche (Boucher) and John and Lewis Sampson. The parcel of land in question ran from the Post Road to the Atlantic and from Sporting Mountain Road to Indian Hill, close to River Tillard. This area of land was subdivided to other inhabitants as time passed.

Nova Scotia Archives has the following Crown Lease Approval in 1805:

Report of Crawley to Plant: 1600 acres at the River Bourgeoise in St. Peter's Bay. Note: Crown lease approved. Plan. Peter Landris, John Landris, Belony Landris, Lewis Bouche, John Sampson, Lewis Sampson and Thomas Landris.

Nova Scotia Archives has the following Petition in 1807:

Petition to Despard: Petitioners ask a crown lease of the lands at River Bourjoize in St. Peter's Bay, on which they have been settled since 1789.
Peter Landree, John Landree, Thomas Landree, Benoni Landree, Louis Bushey, John Sampson, and Louis Sampson.

The 1811 Census of River Bourgeois records Lewis Bouche with 6 Males 14 to 60, 3 Females 14 to 60, 3 Males under 14, 3 Females under 14, and 13 Unmarried Males and Females. So, this family consists of parents Louis Boucher dit Villedieu and Perpetue Landry and their 13 unmarried children. As well, John Bouche (with no Women, Boys, or Girls) is recorded immediately below Lewis Bouche, and is also unmarried.

The 1813 Militia Roll for River Bourgeois records Lewis Bouche Senr age 57 with 1 Woman, 4 Boys, and 5 Girls. Recorded immediately below Lewis Bouche Sr are Lewis Bouche Jr age 23, Honoré Bouche age 22, Basil Boucher age 16, and John Bouche age 25. John Bouche age 25 is recorded with 1 Woman, no Boys, and 1 Girl; and so is married.

The 2 Females 14 to 60 (i.e. excluding Perpetue Landry) and the 3 Females under 14 in the 1811 Census match the 5 Girls in the 1813 Militia Roll. The 5 Males 14 to 60 (i.e. excluding Louis Boucher) and 3 Males under 14 in the 1811 Census match the 4 Boys plus Lewis Bouche Jr, Honoré Bouche, Basil Bouche, and John Bouche in the 1813 Militia Roll.

In the 1811 to 1813 period, Louis Boucher and Perpetue Landry reside with 13 children (8 sons and 5 daughters). Their daughter Anne (Nanon) is believed to have married Pierre Bourque about 1808. Peter Burke age 28 is recorded in the 1813 Militia Roll of River Bourgeois with 1 Woman, 3 Boys, and no Girls. So, Louis Boucher and Perpetue Landry had at least 14 children.

It is possible Louis Boucher and Perpetue Landry have other married daughters who do not reside with them in this period. It is unlikely they had children after the 1813 Militia Roll as Louis Boucher is believed to have died in 1813.

Honoré Boucher made the following Petition in 1814:

Petitioner, age 24, a native of Cape Breton, asks a grant of the north end of the island on the west side of the Barrasois Des Cottés and a town lot. Lily Cordeau occupies the south side of the Island. Note: The father of petitioner has fourteen or fifteen children. The Island des Coteaux, 130 acres.

This Petition helps to confirm the number of children in the family of Louis Boucher and Perpetue Landry.

Including Jean Boucher, the 1811 Census indicates there are 6 sons of Louis Boucher and Perpetue Landry who are age 14 or older. The 1813 Militia Roll identifies four of these: John age 25, Lewis Jr age 23, Honoré age 22, and Basil age 16. It is likely Firmin was over 14 in 1811. See Notes for Firmin Boucher, husband of Susanne LeBlanc, for further information. Which other son was 14 or older in 1811? 
BOUCHER DIT VILLEDIEU, Louis (I1692)
 
3033 The Rooms Parish Record Collection (PRC) records the baptism of Thomas Pike, son of John and Ann King of Bradley's Cove, at Western Bay Methodist. When a child is given a surname for their second name, it is sometimes the mother's maiden surname. So, Ann's maiden surname may be Pike.

FamilySearch’s Newfoundland, Vital Statistics, 1753-1893 records the baptism of Anne, daughter of Edward and Mary Pike, born Harbour Grace baptized March 18 1781 at Harbour Grace Church of England. Hers is the only Ann Pike baptism recorded in FamilySearch’s Newfoundland, Vital Statistics, 1753-1893 before 1800. But this Anne Pike would be about 52 at the time of the baptism of Mark Anthony, son of John and Ann King, in May 1833. So, Anne, daughter of Edward and Mary Pike, is unlikely to be the wife of John King.

FamilySearch’s Newfoundland, Vital Statistics, 1753-1893 records the baptism of John, son of John and Elizabeth Pike of Bradley's Cove, on January 26 1798 at Carbonear Methodist. They seem to be the only Pike family known to be in Bradley's Cove. Anne, wife of John King, may be the daughter of this John and Elizabeth Pike.

The 1805 Newfoundland Return of Possession in Conception Bay does not record a Pike in Bradley's Cove. The following are recorded in Bradley's Cove:

199 William Butt: In possession 21 years. Rent free by his Father-in-Law's Consent. 1785.
200 James King Sr: Cut and cleared. 1773.
201 William Whealon & Co: Cut and cleared. 1756.
202 Wm Crocker: Bequeathed to him by his mother's will. 1786.

3034 The Rooms Parish Record Collection (PRC) records the marriage of William Pike of Carbonear and Eliza Ann McLean Widow of Carbonear on January 12 1814 in Bethany Methodist Church, Carbonear.

FamilySearch's Newfoundland, Vital Statistics, 1753-1893 doe not record an Eliza's marriage to a McLean before 1814.

The Petition of George Pike regarding the Estate of William Pike states "The said deceased [William Pike] left him surviving his Widow Eliza Ann since deceased" indicating Eliza Ann died between William Pike's death in March 1854 and George Pike's Petition in October 1899.

According to David Pike’'’s Family History & Genealogy Resources website transcript of Carbonear Methodist burials, there are no burials for an Eliza Ann Pike or Eliza Pike between 1854 and 1899. There is a burial for an Elizabeth Pike age 78 of South Side on November 29 1865. This Elizabeth Pike was born about 1787, and is the only Elizabeth Pike buried at Carbonear Methodist between 1854 and 1899 whose implied year of birth is consistent with a marriage to William Pike.

Elizabeth Pike buried at Carbonear Methodist in 1865 may be the wife of another Pike, as there were several who had children during the same time period as William Pike and Eliza Ann McLean. Also, Eliza Ann (McLean) Pike may not have died and been buried in Carbonear.

David Pike's Family History & Genealogy Resources website in its Miscellaneous Pike Data section contains the following:

At MHA [Maritime History Archive], mentioned in Finding Aid 43 (for student papers submitted to J. Mannion), are three that involve Pike families:

36-B-1-71, by John R. Davis for the course GEOG 2000, consists of a family tree for Thomas Pike (1755-1855) and Lenora Sophiah Davis (1757-1835).

See Notes for Thomas Pike, father of William Pike, for a transcript and analysis of this Source. There are no Source Citations provided for this Family Tree, making it difficult to assess its accuracy.

The Family Tree in this student paper identifies "Elizabeth Penney (1792-1871)" as the wife of "William Pike (1789-1870)", and both as the parents of 7 children who are, with minor discrepancies, those from the marriage of William Pike and Eliza Ann McLean.

William Pike's wife is consistently recorded as Eliza or Eliza Ann at their marriage, at the baptisms of their children, and in son George Pike's 1899 Petition.

Eliza Ann McLean was a Widow at her marriage to William Pike in 1814. So, it is possible Penney is her maiden surname.

David Pike's Family History & Genealogy Resources website records transcripts for all Pike burials at Carbonear Methodist and Carbonear Church of England.

As Eliza Ann (McLean) Pike's burial has not been identified for certain, it is possible the years 1792-1871 given in the Family Tree for Eliza Ann McLean's birth and/or death are accurate.

There are no Carbonear Methodist or Carbonear Church of England burials for an Eliza Ann Pike or Eliza Pike who could be the wife of William Pike. There is no Elizabeth Pike age about 79 buried in 1871 in either Carbonear Methodist or Carbonear Church of England. 
MCLEAN, Eliza Ann (I1089)
 
3035 The Rooms Parish Records Collection for Burnt Head Church of England records the burial of Bridget Taylor age 20 on September 5 1876. Her burial is recorded in chronological order among several other burials in 1876. There is only one burial of a Bridget Taylor between 1842 and 1895 at Burnt Head Church of England.

The Burnt Head Church of England Cemetery has a joint tombstone for "Bridget Taylor Daughter of Patience & Robert Taylor" … "Aged 20 Yrs" "And Her Brother John" … "Aged 19 Yrs". On this tombstone, Bridget Taylor's date of death is recorded as September 10 1879.

Thus, Bridget Taylor's burial date is inconsistent with Bridget Taylor's tombstone. However, there only evidence of one burial of a Bridget Taylor.

I can only speculate on the reasons for this discrepancy (perhaps an incorrect date of death provided by whoever requested the tombstone or a mistake by the tombstone carver). It is difficult to believe there were 2 Bridget Taylor's buried at Burnt Head Church of England within 3 years, who both died in the month of September at age 20.

Also, see Notes for John Taylor, son of Robert Taylor and Patience Taylor, who also has a discrepancy between his Burnt Head Church of England burial record and his Burnt Head Church of England Cemetery tombstone.

As Bridget's burial record occurs among other 1876 burials, I believe her death occurred in 1876 rather than in 1879. 
TAYLOR, Bridget (I2263)
 
3036 The Rooms Parish Records Collection for Burnt Head Church of England records the burial of John Taylor age 18 on February 9 1877. His burial is recorded in chronological order among several other burials in 1877. There is only one burial of a John Taylor between 1856 and 1895 at Burnt Head Church of England.

The Burnt Head Church of England Cemetery has a joint tombstone for "Bridget Taylor Daughter of Patience & Robert Taylor" … "Aged 20 Yrs" "And Her Brother John" … "Aged 19 Yrs". On this tombstone, John Taylor's date of death is recorded as February 5 1878.

Thus, John Taylor's burial year is inconsistent with John Taylor's tombstone by 1 year. However, there only evidence of one burial of a John Taylor.

Also, see Notes for Bridget Taylor, daughter of Robert Taylor and Patience Taylor, who also has a larger discrepancy between her Burnt Head Church of England burial record and her Burnt Head Church of England Cemetery tombstone.

As John's burial record occurs among other 1877 burials, I believe his death occurred in 1877 rather than in 1878. 
TAYLOR, John (I2264)
 
3037 The Saint Andrew, Holborn marriage of Phoebe Ann Gardner does not record or otherwise identify Phoebe Ann's parents. It is reasonable to conclude she is Phoebe Ann, daughter of John and Elizabeth Gardner of Luton for the following reasons:

1. Phoebe Ann Gardner is recorded as being "of Luton". There is only one baptism for a Phoebe Ann Gardner who could marry in 1799, and she is the daughter of John and Elizabeth Gardner of Luton.
2. Phoebe Ann Gardner is recorded as being a "Minor". Phoebe Ann, daughter of John and Elizabeth Gardner of Luton was baptized December 21, 1779 as so was a likely a Minor on December 18 1799.
3. One witness was John Gardner, likely Phoebe Ann's father or brother.

Ancestry's London, England, Church of England Deaths and Burials, 1813-2003 records 2 candidates for Phoebe Ann Gardner, wife of John Hill. But, there may be no existing record of her burial.

1. Phoebe Hill age 49 of Eaton Court buried December 9 1828 at St. George Hanover Square, Middlesex. No other information is recorded. Her implied year of birth is about 1779.

2. Phoebe Ann Hill age 75 of 92 Gloster Mews West, Portman Square buried March 28 1852. No other information is recorded. Her implied year of birth is about 1776.

The 1851 Census of St. Marys, Marylebone, London records John Hill age 75 Annuitant born Hoxton Town Middlesex, wife Phebe Ann age 73 Laundress born Richmond, and daughter Emma Unmarried age 34 Laundress born Middlesex, residing 92 Gloucester Mews West. This is the same Phoebe Ann Hill who was buried in 1852. This Phoebe Ann Hill's place of birth is recorded as Richmond, not Luton Bedford.

So, there may have been 2 families of John and Phoebe Ann Hill in Middlesex in the early 1800's. 
GARDNER, Phoebe Ann (I5166)
 
3038 The Settlement of Havre Saint Pierre was an article published in the Island Magazine (Number 53 Spring/Summer 2003). The following is an excerpt relating to François Douville.

The inhabitant of Havre Saint Pierre who had been living the longest on the Island, according to the 1728 census, was François Douville. Born in Saint-Denis-le-Gatz, in Normandy, he arrived in 1719, one year before the Comte de Saint-Pierre's contingent. On his death certificate, dated the 30th of January 1757, Father Jean de Biscaret, the priest who officiated at the funeral service, claimed that the deceased had been the "first inhabitant of the said Island."

Around 1722, when he was about 38 years old, François Douville married a 13 year-old girl by the name of Marie Roger, the daughter of Gabriel Roger, another pioneer of Havre-Saint-Pierre. Marie had been born in La Rochelle, France, although her father was a native of the island of Orléans, near Québec City. He had arrived on the Island in 1720. François and Marie had a family of eleven children.

When François Douville died, he was the most prosperous resident of the area. In the census taken in 1752, he is identified as a fisherman, a navigator and a farmer. He owned three properties; he had the largest herds and he was the owner of a boat and two fishing shallops. Douville was also the proprietor of a flour mill located at the fond des "tangs" (head of St. Peters Lake), where Bristol is located today.

3039 The Stonepics Index has an entry for ‘Sheppard, Tobias (1905) & Albert’ in Harbour Grace South Side (i.e. on NF126 HAG13). The combination of Tobias and Albert indicates this entry is for Tobias, husband of Elizabeth Adams, and their son Albert.

The Death Registration for Tobias Sheppard records his death on November 14 1905 in Harbour Grace at age 64. He was born and buried in Harbour Grace South. Tobias’ age of 64 implies a year of birth about 1841 which is consistent with the birth of Isaac Tobias, son of John and Maria Shephard of Harbour Grace, on February 11 1842.

The Harbour Grace South Side Protestant Cemetery has the following headstone:

In loving memory of Tobias SHEPPARD/
Who Died Nov 14th 1905/
Aged 64 Years/
Also of his son Albert/
Who was drowned May 24th 1891/
Aged 23 Years/ 
SHEPPARD, Isaac Tobias (k.a. Tobias) (I3557)
 
3040 The three eldest children of Arthur King and Henrietta Goodyear are Frederick George, Cranswick Thomas, and William James (k.a. James). Based on current sources, they were born in February, June, and December 1889 respectively. This is not possible if all three are biological sons of Arthur King and Henrietta Goodyear. Their fourth eldest child is Lewis born September 28 1891 according to both his baptism and Birth Registration.
Is it reasonable to believe Arthur King and Henrietta Goodyear had four children in just under four years between their marriage in November 1887 and Lewis' birth in September 1891, with no indication any were twins? This is, at the least, unusually frequent.
There are no baptisms for Cranswick Thomas, William James, or Frederick George in the Catalina church records (either Methodist or Church of England). There is a record of the confirmation of a William James King in Catalina Church of England, but no record of confirmations of his brothers Cranswick Thomas or Frederick George in the Church of England.
The Rooms Parish Record Collection (PRC) for Catalina Methodist records a King baptism on March 28 1888 with a residence of Little Catalina. The first name is difficult to read, but appears to be similar to "Jas". No parents or age are recorded. This baptism does not appear in the Rooms Registers of Vital Statistics (RVS).
There are several possible explanations for the "four children in just under four years". One such scenario is as follows:

1. William James' confirmation in the Church of England suggests he may be the biological son of parents or a single mother who belonged to the Church of England. Perhaps, this confirmation was in recognition of his "birth" religion. So William James may not be the biological son of Arthur King and Henrietta Goodyear, but rather an "adopted" son. William James King is the son of William James King and Aida Marcella Belmer. The son William James' May 14 2002 email states "My father told me that when his mother died, he was sent to live with an ‘aunt’ in a larger town nearby." Perhaps this occurred soon after he was born, and does not refer to Henrietta Goodyear (who died in 1902 after William James King's confirmation in 1900). If the father William James was born prior to March 28 1888, he is a candidate for the March 28 1888 Catalina Methodist baptism of an unknown King in Little Catalina.

2. Cranswick Thomas may be the oldest biological son of Arthur King and Henrietta Goodyear, born in or slightly prior to June 1888, one year earlier than indicated by current sources. Cranswick Thomas is then 18 or almost 18 when he married Flora Wiseman in March 1906. If Cranswick Thomas was born prior to March 28 1888, he is a candidate for the March 28 1888 Catalina Methodist baptism of an unknown King in Little Catalina.

3. Frederick George may be the second oldest biological son of Arthur King and Henrietta Goodyear, born in February 1890, one year later than indicated by current sources. There would be at least 20 months between the births of Cranswick Thomas and Frederick George, and 20 months between the births of Frederick George and Lewis.

This "scenario" will be difficult to verify.

Arthur King could not write. He was a witness to the marriage of James Goodyear (or Gudger as it was spelled in the marriage form) and Emily Steed on August 9, 1887 and signed with his "mark" to verify he had witnessed the marriage.

The inscription on the tombstone for Arthur King and Henrietta Goodyear in the Little Catalina United Church cemetery is as follows:

WE SHALL MEET AGAIN
ERECTED BY LEWIS
IN LOVING MEMORY
OF

3044 The transcript for St. Hyacinth's Church, D'Escousse Parish records the burial of Amelia Boudrot who died April 30, 1897 at age "60 ? Years". No family is recorded and it can not be determined if this Amelia Boudrot is Émilie Samson, wife of first Élie LeBlanc and second Désiré Boudrot. SAMSON, Émilie (I1409)
 
3045 The transcript of Saint Hyacinth Parish, ’D'Escousse records:

1. Baptism of Édouard born May 6 1834, son of Edouard Burke and Marie Poirier
2. Baptism of Aimé born January 4 1836, son of Edouard Burke and Marie Poirier, baptized February 13 1836
3. Baptism of Désiré born August 15 1837, son of Edouard Burke and Marie Poirier, baptized September 10 1837
4. Marriage of Édouard Burke, son of Edouard Burke and Marie Poirier, and Appoline McDonell, daughter of Valentin McDonell and Marie Foret, on January 7 1862

The 1871 Census of ’D'Escousse records Edward Burke age 61 Irish Fisherman, wife Mary Burke age 70 French, Dicere (?) (male) Burke age 34 Irish, Emmy (male) Burke age 36 Irish Fisherman Widower, and Ann Poirrier age 23 French; all born NS (Division 1 Page 21 Family 83-84).

The 1881 Census of ’D'Escousse records Edward Burke age 75 French Fisherman, wife Mary age 77, and Désiré (male) age 38; all born NS (Page 27 Family 121). They immediately follow Edward Burke age 40 French Fisherman, wife Anne age 49 French, and 3 children; all born NS.

The 1891 Census of ’D'Escousse records Edward Burk age 61 Fisherman & Farmer, wife Apoline age 59, son Edward age 21 Fisherman, father Edward age 82 Widower, and l[odger] Dezery age 46; all born NS (Page 25 Family 126).

Edward Burke and Marie Poirier are known to have children Édouard, Aimé, and Désiré; and Édouard Burke married Appoline McDonell. It is reasonable to conclude the above Census entries are for Edward Burke and Marie Poirier.

Edward Burke's age is recorded as follows:

1871 Census age 61, implying a year of birth about 1809-1810
1881 Census age 75, implying a year of birth about 1805-1806
1891 Census age 82, implying a year of birth about 1808-1809
1894 Burial age 87, implying a year of birth about 1806-1807

As these ages are fairly consistent, it is reasonable to believe he was born about 1807 plus or minus 1-2 years. 
BURKE, Edward (I3710)
 
3046 The transcript of the Bledlow Parish Record for this marriage is:

John Ellerd of the parish of Luton in the County of Oxford bachelor and Ann Styles of this parish spinster by License 11 May 1824 in presence of Jonah Britnell, Martha Avery 
Family F1239
 
3047 The transcript of the St. Hyacinth's, ’D'Escousse Parish records the burial of Mary (Provost) LeBlanc age 92, widow of the late Polycarpe LeBlanc, died and buried March 26 1875. Present are Marane (sic) LeBlanc and Abraham Boudroit (sic) and others.

Nova Scotia Historical Vital Statistics records the death of Mary LeBlanc age 82 Widow born Tracadie died March 26 1875 Poullemond (sic) of Old Age. The informant is Malin (sic) LeBlanc.

The 1871 Census of ’D'Escousse records Marin LeBlanc age 30 Widower Fisherman, Aimé LeBlanc age 12, Mary LeBlanc age 75 Widow, and Melanie LeBlanc age 47; all born NS. This Mary LeBlanc is the only Marie LeBlanc born 1787 +/- 10 years In Nova Scotia and residing in Nova Scotia who lives in ’D'Escousse.

As a "Marane LeBlanc" was present at the above burial and a "Malin LeBlanc" was the informant for the above Death Registration, it is reasonable to conclude Mary LeBlanc age 75 Widow in the 1871 Census of ’D'Escousse is the Mary LeBlanc who died March 26 1875 in Poulamon. So, it is more reasonable to believe her age at death is likely closer to 82 than to 92.

According to the burial and death registration, Mary (Provost) LeBlanc was born about 1782 or about 1792. In either case, Mary (Provost) LeBlanc's year of birth is far more consistent with her being the wife of Polycarpe LeBlanc Junior, than of Polycarpe LeBlanc Senior.

Polycarpe LeBlanc Junior was born about 1788 (age 25 in the 1813 Militia Roll of Grand Digue), whereas Polycarpe LeBlanc Senior was born about 1762. 
PRÉVOST, Marie (I4920)
 
3048 The transcript of ’D'Escousse Parish records the marriage of Joseph Poirier, oldest son of Pierre Poirier and Anastasia Bonin, and Marguerite McDonald, daughter of Valentine McDonald and Anastasia Petitpas, on January 12 1833 with a witness Herbert Poirier brother of groom.

There is no record of a "Herbert" Poirier in D'Escousse in the early to mid 1800's, but many instances of a "Hubert" Poirier's namely:

1. Hubert Poirier age 16 Fisherman in the 1813 Militia Roll
2. Hubert Poirier's 1819 Land Petition stating Hubert is age 24, married, and a native of Isle Madame
3. Hubert Poirier's 1827 Land Petition stating Hubert is age 28, married, and has six children
4. Baptism of Helaire, son of Hubert Poirier and Judith Josse, March 20 1832 at St. Hyacinth's
5. Baptism of Joseph, son of Hubert Poirier and Judith Josse, March 11 1834 at St. Hyacinth's
6. Baptism of Philippe, son of Hubert Poirier and Judith Josse, February 12 1836 at St. Hyacinth's
7. Baptism of Bonne, child of Hubert Poirier and Judith Josse, January 24 1838 at St. Hyacinth's
8. Hubert Poirrier and Judique in the 1838 Census
9. Baptism of Élie, child of Hubert Poirier and Judith Josse, September 21 1839 at St. Hyacinth's
10. Hubert Poirier's dues paid of £15 in 1846 St. Hyacinth's Parish Census
11. Marriage of Hilaire, son of Hubert Poirier and Judith Josse, on September 3 1857 at St. Hyacinth's
12. Death Registration for Hubert Poirier age 78 Married born Lower D'Escousse died January 25 1870 in Lower D'Escousse
13. Burial of Judith Josse, wife of Hubert Poirier, January 4 1880 at St. Hyacinth's

It is reasonable to conclude Pierre Poirier's brother is Hubert Poirier, not Herbert Poirier.

The 1813 Militia Roll for ’D'Escousse records Hubert Poirier age 16 born Cape Breton Fisherman with no Women, Boys, or Girls.

Hubert Poirier's 1819 Land Petition is as follows:

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

An 1827 Land Petition from Hubert Poirier and his brothers is as follows:

Petition to Kempt: Petitioners are natives of this province. Hubert Poirier is 28 years old, married and has six children. Peter Poirier, age 30, has five children. Joseph Poirier, age 27, has three children. John Poirier, age 24, is married. They ask lots at Lower Descousse, 25 acres each. Approved. Hubert X Poirier, Peter X Poirier, Joseph X Poirier and John X Poirier. 
POIRIER, Hubert (I3732)
 
3049 The transcription of St. Hyacinth's, ’D'Escousse Parish records contains the marriage of Honoré Samson, oldest son of Louis Samson and Marie LeCointe, to Elizabeth Burke, daughter of Édouard Bourke and Ludvine McDonald, on November 10 1835. This marriage may record Louis Samson as deceased, and so be the original source for Louis Samson's approximate date and place of death. SAMSON, Louis (I1971)
 
3050 The transcription of St. Hyacinth's, ’D'Escousse Parish records the following baptisms for children of Joseph Landry and Henriette LeBlanc:

1. Melanie baptized September 29 1832 with godparents Abrahm LeBlanc and Melanie LeBlanc
2. Abraham born July 6 1835 with godparents Abrahm LeBlanc and Rufine Burke
3. Joseph born April 26 1841 with godparents Abrahm Boudreau and Rufina Burke

Abraham LeBlanc, husband of Anne Fougère, is the son of Jean LeBlanc and Susanne Landry according to his marriage. See Notes for Joseph LeBlanc, husband of Rufine Bourque, regarding the conclusion Joseph LeBlanc is also the son of Jean LeBlanc and Susanne Landry.

With Abraham LeBlanc and Rufine Burke being godparents for 2 of these 3 children of Joseph Landry and Henriette LeBlanc, it is reasonable to believe Henriette LeBlanc, wife of Joseph Landry, is the daughter of Jean LeBlanc and Susanne Landry. 
LEBLANC, Henriette (I1585)
