Canada Lookup Request / Parsons- Bay Roberts, Newfoundland- Will
« on: Sunday 09 January 11 03:49 GMT (UK)  »
Hi,
I have looked at all resources available from Newfoundland  Parish records and vital statistics and there is nothing for the area and time frame for a Matthew Parsons.  I have him having a few kids and in a few census' of which the most interesting is the 1898 Harbour Grace district which says "Matt (Wm" so I am looking for a William or Matt/Matthew Will or estate, or land record.  I know where they are buried (Coley's Point Grace United Church) and that Matthew was born in Newfoundland, Bay Roberts area, specifically Country Rd, the grave of William says immigrated from England early 1800's .
I need a look up if anyone has access or some advice on what is needed for the will or land deed or something else to look up.  I know Matthew died Country Rd at 84 in May 1927, but I do not know anything about the possible father William.  I hope to get a will to help link them because there is nothing else out there.  The only other thing I may have is a John Parsons lives in same area in 1921 census, is in the other census' and directories with Matthew and it says same (Wm beside his name in the 1898 census, I assume same father.  (Also, John and William have the same grave type but my direct ancestor Matthew is in unmarked grave)
If there is any advice or look ups that can be done it would be greatly appreciated.  I can provide more info if it is needed.
Thanks
