CANADA WOLF...I just got some info from ENGLAND..specifically on JAMES GILL.,,It is the court docs on case against him by JANE COLE concerning her son who was fathered by JAMES GILL. These papers were filed on Jan 12,1821 charging him with the abandonment of a bastard child and they were looking for him. Apparently QUEEN ELIZABETH I had put the law into place a few hundred years before that a man could be charged for the care of a child born out of wedlock...they were supposed to be married a few months before the wedding but he ran off while the BANNS were still in place at the church.
It is not much be slowly the pieces are coming together and a portrait of JAMES is being painted!
I totally believe that he arrived with his brothers in NOTRE DAME BAY on the first boat out of town...AND THAT IS WHY THERE IS no INFO ABOUT THIS FAMILY TO BE FOUND.
we are planning to go to NL in DEC to see the family and I will be at the rooms for a couple of days before heading west to NDB and STEPHENVILLE. I will try to find out anything I can while in NDB about the various people that everyone is looking for.
So hang in all as I hope to find SOMETHING? from maybe a relative. MICMAK1
