Is the surname, Habit, still to be found in Newfoundland? My husband's ancestor, George Roger Drake, was said to have come from Plymouth, England sometime between 1750-1780 and that he married Annie Habit in Newfoundland. They had at least 2 children and at some point Annie died. George moved to Nova Scotia and married a second time to a Mrs. Copper and had 2 more children, the last bc 1806.
I'd be grateful for any information that the name Habit was actually existing at that time period---it's been very difficult to find anyone with that name. Thank you.
