Surnames: Budden, Knight, Woolfrey, Minty
I am searching my family tree - Budden, Ezekiel from Seldom-Come By, Julia Knight from Jackson's Arm
Joseph Minty from Twillingate and Amelia Woolfrey Minty from Lewisporte. My great great grandfather was Robert Woolfrey from Moreton's Harbor 1820 - 1877 married Elizabeth Small 1811 - 1876. I believe Robert Woolfrey's family and the Budden family came from Poole in England in the beginning when they emigrated to Newfoundland, Canada.

I'm also researching the Budden's of Seldom-Come By. My Bubdden's came from Sixpenny Handley in Dorset. Have not found any that came from Poole though. Contact me if you want to exchange information.

Hi Ruth

I am researching the Budden family as well and I have some information if you are intersested.

Also I am hoping you may be able to help me as well.

My gg-grandmother was a Elizabeth ???? from Cupids Newfoundland and she married a Joseph Budden from Carbonear. This was her second marriage which took place in 1872 in Seldom Come By. Elizabeth and Joseph had a son Ezekiel, baptised 1874 and he married a Julia Knight. Ezekiel and Julia had a son Lupert born 1904.

I wondering if you, or any of your contacts may know Elizabeth's maiden name. Elizabeth's first marriage was to my gg-grandfather,Nathaniel Boone from Bareneed Newfoundland.

My email address is

Hello to Ruth & Brian.

I too am researching the Budden's of Seldom/Fogo. One of my ggggrandfather's sons was a Stephen Budden born 03 Sept 1820 in Perry's Cove. One of his sons Joseph married a girl from Fogo and Stephen & his wife Ann King moved there. Not sure if their other son Bartholmew & daughter Jemima also moved there.

Their son Joseph was born 28 July 1841 in Perry' Cove and married his lst wife Martha Puddester 26 March 1867. Martha died shortly after the birth of their son Allen in June of 1867 in Seldom Come By. Joseph's 2nd wife was Elizabeth Boone with whom he had a son Ezekeal born 1873 in Seldom Come By.

Allen Budden married Elizabeth ? (unknown) and had the following children:

Julie/ Julia Budden, born July 1906 Michaels Harbour, NL
Harry Budden born Nov. 1901, North Sydney,Nova Scotia
Martha Budden, born Sept 1905, Michaels Harbour, NL
Novella Budden, born Feb. 1910, Michaels Harbour, NL

Allen died 24 June 1947 in Botwood and his wife Elizabeth died 17 April 1920 in Botwood.

Ezekeal Budden - I have no info other than what Brian shows: Ezekael married a Julia Knight and they had a son LUPERT - can you confirm this name??

Sorting out the Seldom Budden's is very difficult - as I believe there may have been TWO Stephen Budden's living at about the same time and the same place, or maybe just some very conflicting information.
