Griffiths and Sparrow

Posted: 17 Apr 2013 10:30AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Griffiths, Fitzpatrick, Whelan, Whiffen and Sparrow, Wash and Martin
My name is Lauren Howard and I am the great grandaughter of David Griffiths 1882 and Jane Sparrow 1888, From Ship Harbour and Placentia

I've done a fair bit of researching but I've hit a brick wall on the Griffiths side and can't seen to go any further than Patrick Griffiths 1820 or Davvyd/David Griffiths 1795. One of these we believed immigrated from Wales/England or Ireland due to upsetting the royal family of England or so the legend goes, it was reported he was also a famous painter in the UK? Any history or knowledge would be fantastic. (Surnames so far on this side of the tree are; Fitzpatrick, Whelan, Whiffen)

On the sparrow side I know a little about Jane Sparrow and her family. As well a tragic accident in St John's which resulted in her Grandmother's death outside John the Baptist. (Surnames so far on this side of the tree are; Walsh and Martin)

Both sets of family seem to be from Ship Harbour, Bachens and Placentia.

Looking forward to finding any relatives or stories.

All the best,
Lauren Howard
