Albert William Strickland was my grandfather. >From what my Uncle Ben Strickland told me, she was Mikmaq from Cinq Cerf, born July 18, 1880. I have records of her baptism. There is also a photo of Benjamin and Rebecca Margaret's headstone on line. Her parents were William and Susannah Melbourne. I am unsure of Benjamin's parents. It may be Jojn Strickland The Strickland name originates in England. If you have further information I'd love to read it over. I will try to get my uncles info, he has passed on, so I'll have to track it down. I guess we are cousins of sort since we share great grandfathers. How cool is that!

    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: burgeoNL Surnames: Strickland Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/localities.northam.canada.newfoundland.southcoast/343/mb.ashx Message Board Post: In the 1835 diary of Edward Wix he writes: Wednesday, 22.-Off at 5, A.M., in a very heavy swell; the wind contrary and bitterly piercing. I reached W. Strickland's, however, at Long Island Harbour, by half-past seven, A.M. There was much "swish ice" in the harbour which we left, and we found much of the same here also. The people, being upon their fishing-ground outside, had seen us go into their harbour, So they returned, on so unusual an event as the entrance of a strange boat to their harbour, and assembled for full service. I had one baptism, and was much pleased with their simple manner of singing. Sir Thomas J. Cochrane, the late excellent governor of Newfoundland, having put into Deer Island, White Bear Bay, while this Strickland and his brother John lived there, found them engaged, as is their custom, in reading prayers to their own and the neighbours' families on the Lord's day; and his Excellency presented him with a one octavo prayer book, with the stamp of the Prayer Book and Homily Society. Strickland i! s very proud of this treasure. When he showed it to me, he begged with much humility, that I would point out to him those parts of the public service which a lay reader might use in a congregation. "We never saw a church," said he, "or were where a church was, or got any schooling, for reading is hard to be got in these parts; but we taught ourselves, and go through the prayers alternate," (he and his brother, he meant) " morning and evening, each Sunday." I promised to comply with a request which he, and scores similarly situated, made of me, that I would, soon after my return, send round some suitable sermons for his public reading, and I reminded him of the gracious promise of our LORD, that where two or three are gathered together in his name, there HE will be, in the midst of them. The younger branches of the families of these good men could all read. A reference to the report of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, for the year 1830, will introduce the reade! r to a patriarch of the same name. I found him employed in the same us eful way at the Burgeo Islands. His seed, it will be seen, from this present description of two of the younger branches of the same stock, are likely to be blessed. In a later part of his diary he writes: Saturday, 23 [May 1835].--I found that this bay had been visited by the Reverend William Bullock, in company with his Excellency, Sir Thomas Cochrane [Governor of Newfoundland] in 1829. He was the first clergyman, in the memory of the oldest inhabitant, who had visited the place. Does anyone have information on these two brothers living at Deer Island in 1829? They were living in Hermitage Bay in 1835. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

I read Speck's "Beothik and Micmacs." in sections. Page 133 lists the sections of land allotted to hunters, and a John Mathews is listed there (one t). I don't see a year listed, or community of residence, etc. Howley reports hunting grounds in the 1880's and listed there is Noel, Michael and Martin Matthews. No clear connection is noted between these Mathews and the earlier (I assume) John Matthews. I have been looking for the Matthews family of my line and while I am having no success, I will say in every Matthews family and in every generation, there is a John. So that doesn't make it any easier. The Matthews I am looking for would have a son George Matthews 1849-1926, born somewhere in Burin and died in Bay du Nord. He married Mary Ings (Inks) from Whale Cove, also died at Bay du Nord. Anybody able to help me with this? In the meantime, somebody out there must have the data on Old Man (John) Matthews and can demonstrate his heritage. If people have had applications for status approved on his Mi'kmaq background, then somebody has it. Please share, I think there are many who would be interested.
