Not to sure who this Alfred is but ibelieve he is either a son or grandson of Richard Osmond who came from Crockers Cove and settled on Gooseberry Island in early 1800. Richard was son of Joseph Osmond who came from England and settled in Crockers Cove abt 1750. Another Osmond, David, settled there abt the same time. They are believed to be half-brothers
Richard had at least two brothers;Joseph Jr [my 3xgreatgrandfather] and William? or Benjamin ?
Richard went to Gooseberry Islands and is believed to be the
ancestor of the Greenspond osmonds and other Osmonds in Bonivista Bay.William and or Benjamin went to Fortune Bay and are the ancestors of the osmonds in that area.Joseph went to Moretons Hr and is the ancestor of some of the Osmonds found in Notre Dame Bay.The others are descendants of Davids son ,James who settled on Barr,d Island, Fogo. The Osmonds/Osbournes in White Bay are also descendants of James.
NOTE;David and Joseph were the earliest records of Osmonds in NF andThe Richard Osmond ,master of "The Betsy" was not the Richard who settled on Gooseberry Island He belonged to an earlier genaration, however i believe they were closely related
