Hello:
William David Mesher (1855-1910) was the son of Robert John (1828-1909) and Eliza (Hamel) Mesher (1837-1916), and was born at Paradise River, Labrador. Robert John Mesher (1828-1909) was the son of William (c1800-1839) and Hannah (Brooks) Mesher (1813-1839) and was born at Sabisquasho, Labrador. William Mesher (c1800-1839) was the son of James Mesher, believed to be from England, and a Labrador Inuit wife, name unknown. Hannah Brooks (1813-1895) was the daughter of Ambrose Brooks (1780-1852) from Brighton, England and his Inuit wife, named Susan, from the Rigolet, Labrador area. They lived at Mulligan, Labrador, and Ambrose is buried at North West River, Labrador. Eliza Hamel (1837-1916) was the daughter of Peter Hamel, from Quebec and his wife, Eliza Broomfield. Eliza Broomfield was the daughter of William Broomfield, from England, and his Labrador Inuit wife, name unknown. They lived at Tikkeraluk Island, Labrador.
I have William David Mesher's (1855-1910) as Roxanne Stevens from Raleigh, Nfld, but cannot confirm that.

William had siblings John Charles (1856-1922, Annabella Jane (1858- ), Reuben Absalom (1860-1918), Samuel James (1862-1922), Edward Uriah (1876-1918).

William (1855-1910) and Roxanne Mesher had the folowing children:
Charlotte Eliza (1885- ) m. Harry Stevens, Vida (1894- ) died young, Annabella Mary (1886- ) m. Jesse Flowers, Maud (1888-1925) m. Ted McNeil, Susannah (1890-1969) m. William George Pardy, Dora (1892- ) m. ?? Hicks, Edith, died young, Effie May (1896- ) m. Harry Penney, Wilfred (1898- ) m. Emmeline Roberts, and Hilda (1899- ) m. 1. Charles Pynn, and 2. Walter Taylor.
After William David (1855-1910) died at Paradise River, Dr. (Sir Wilfred) Grenfell took his widow, Roxanne, and her young family to St. Anthony, Nfld, where they remained.

Hope this helps.

My mother, Emmeline Roberts, is the niece of Wilfred Mesher and Emmeline Roberts. She came to St. Anthony from Bolsters Rock, Labrador to live with her aunt & uncle when she was seven years old. Her father was Alfred Roberts, brother of Emmeline (Roberts) Mesher, and her mother was Mary Jane Huggins. I am interested in tracing any family roots, especially Roberts, Gill and Huggins. My grandfather, Alfred Roberts was born in 1892 in Bolsters Rock to Henry James(1852-1903) and Elizabeth (Gill) Roberts(1862-1943). Henry James was born in 1852 to James and Matilda Ann (?)Roberts.

I think that Henry James also had a sibling, William John, born 1850.

I have also found reference on genweb to a Thomas Gill who married Mary Jane Sheppard in Fishing Ships Hr on October 1, 1860. I do not know if this is any relation to Elizabeth.

Any help in this would be greatly appreciated.

I would be interested in anything you find out about Ambrose Brooks.

I am also a descendant of William David Mesher and Roxanne Stevens.

Berni, I emailed you recently, I'm not sure if your address is the same, I wanted to thank you for your work and perhaps get some more info. I figured out the connection between your late wife and I on my family tree. Hope to hear from you.
