Newhooks of Old Shop, T.Bay, NFLD

Hi all,

I'm hoping someone out there can help me in linking the Newhooks of Old Shop to the Newhooks in New Harbour or Chapel Arm and eventually to Trinity, Newfoundland. I have lots of info on the early Newhooks, but nothing that links to my ancestors. The information I have follows below.

I would really appreciate it if anyone with information that might help would contact me. I can be reached through the GenForum or by e-mail at

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Jennifer Bishop

My Ancestors

--2 John Newhook m. Sara(h) UNKNOWN in 1800s. (they are unproven)
----3 Charles (b. ABT 1844) m. Mary (H)Ann(ah) Osbourne? in 1800s.
------4 John Samuel (b. Jan 7, 1890) died age 18 mos.
------4 William Robert (b. Oct 12, 1893) died in Sudbury, ON per Death Certificate.
------4 Samuel (Old Shop) (b. Sept 26, 1895) m. Martha Hillier (Spread Eagle)
--------5 Julia m. Hezekiah Gosse (Whitbourne) and had 5 children.
--------5 Tryphena m. John Ernest Cooper on September 30, 1946 and had 1 child.
--------5 Albert Charles m. Ella Florence Moore (of Dildo) and had 8 children. (my grandparents)
--------5 Mahalla m. Arthur Reid (of Dildo) and had 5 children.
--------5 Eva m. Gordon Drover (of Whitbourne, d. 1991) and had 4 children.
------4 Mary Jane (b. Sept 6, 1897) m. Edgar Hynes and had 5 children.
------4 Charles (b. Jun 13, 1900) Charles m. Amelia UNKNOWN and had 6 children.
------4 Julia Ann (b. Feb 24, 1904) Buried in Old Shop Cemetary.
----3 Robert m. Elizabeth (Hr. Buffett) and had 5 children, Albert, Edward/Edmund, Lizzie, Sarah, Emily
----3 Elizabeth m. James Hunt and had at least 1 child named Arthur.

I have information on most of their descendants, but nothing to link them to the Newhooks of Trinity (Charles and Elizabeth in 1700s).

Some of the first settlers of Old Shop are listed as John Newhook and William Newhook from Chance Cove between 1850 and 1870. And the 1871 Census of Old Shop lists John Newhook and Mrs. Sarah Newhook.

The Newhooks of Old Shop may have come from Chapel Arm, Norman's Cove, Long Cove, Come by Chance, New Harbour, or Dildo.

Charles G. Strong's website has the following line but the dates are iffy for this to be my relatives.
1 Charles W. Newhook (b.1752) m. Elizabeth Wilcox (b. ABT 1740-62)
---2 Samuel Newhook (b. ABT 1799) m. Sarah ?
-------3 Sarah Newhook (bap. 1830)
-------3 John Newhook (bap. 1836)
