I have this from my husband's great grandfather:
My Father, Robert Job was the eldest of John Job's children.... Roberts was the head of the firm of merchants Job Bros., of St. Johns Nfd. and Liverpool. The firm is still extant (1892), a son of Thomas alone representing the family. Robert lived many years in St. Johns where all his family were born, Robert, Hugh, Elizabeth, Sarah Jane, William, Keightley, Thomas, Isabella, John Samuel, Daniel Ward, Mary Emily. ....He was always a man of sterling character. Whilst in Nfd. he was a member of His Majesty's Privy Council for the colony. The patent of his appointment exists today with Robert H. Job.
I would like any information on the above family. Do any of them still live in Nfd? How do I verify that Roberts Job was a member of His Majesty's Privy Council?
Thanks, Charleen Roberts
