Re: Ford Family, Barr'd Islands, Newfoundland

In Reply to: Ford Family, Barrd Island, Newfoundland by Brenda Dobson of 1168

My daughter is puting together a familly tree and has asked me for information regarding my family.

My father waa William Brett, born in Joe Batt's Arm on Fogo Island and his wife, my mother, came from Barr'd Islands and her name was Mary Jane Godwin. But we are having difficulty figuring out who her parents were. I believe my grandmother was Laura Jane Ford and married a Godwin.

Your research here mentions the Fords of Barr'd Islands.
When we were back in Newfoundland in 1987 I went from Joe Batt's Arm to Barr'd Islands and met with a Joan Ford, who knew my mother when she, Joan, was a child. She introduced me to an old timer named Israel Godwin who was perhaps my mother's uncle. Not sure about that.

Do you know who these people are? Can you help us put this together? Thanks.

Evan Brett
