NC CREWE NOTE 1958:

 

I have always heard of the Chaulk family as one of the earliest settling families in Bird Island Cove. Also, that two of the Old Chaulks lived to be over a century (strange that my foster father or others had never thought about verifying it from the church registers, but they were not the type of people to bother-- after all, it was enough to know from your mother that she knew or knew from hers about the persons concerned). [TC Note -This information about the centenarians is not borne out by the records].

 

The Chaulks for generations have been both on the North Side and in Muddy Brook, having gone to Maberly from North Side.

 

My foster father Alfred Crewe of George Ellis used to take me for Sunday pm "outings" over to drink the cool water in the little dripspring in the meadow under Crawlers Hill that belonged to his mother , still living [then], nee Ann Chaulk of North Side, which had been given her by her father Joseph Chaulk. On one occasion, she brought out the deed of gift to our house from adjoining uncle Eli's with whom she lived, and I saw it-- about 1910. On her death she gave it to her son, Joseph Crewe, father of Edmund Kirby Crewe and others, and George Ellis Crewe still living.

 

[TC Note – “our house” referenced above is the same occupied by Lewis Crewe and family in the 1960s and thereafter by Walt Gough].

 

No doubt, this little precipitous "meadow" was Chaulk ancestral land.

 

In 1953-4, Edwin Baker wrote me that old William Chaulk was the first settler after the Irishmen Heaney and ---- and that he settled in Northern Cove where the meadow is, and later went to Muddy Brook.

 

NC Crewe 1958.

 

The oldest born persons to have died in Bird Island Cove before 1850, by which time all the oldest- born of the earliest settlers there would have died, are-- according to the only records I am going to consult for this incidental item of history, the Bonavista registers (Supreme and Northern District Court wills may indicate older ones):

John Chaulk, age 85, Died 16 Jul 1838, Methodist.

NC Crewe Notes in Sept 1958 re: Martin.

 

Int'vew with Mrs. Samuel Tucker (nee Grace Ann Martin), widow, age 81, in her son's house at Elliston, 6 Sept 1958.

 

She does not remember her grandparents Martin. She knows her grandfather was Joseph Martin and his wife was "Sally" from SW Arm Catalina, not Russell.

 

Her father was Joseph Martin and his wife was Susan Chaulk, of Muddy Brook who had 4 brothers: Robert, Thomas, Wm & Samuel Chaulk. I recall Robert & Thomas "Uncle Bob" & "Uncle Tom"- the former the father of Mrs. Augustus Crewe (still living), and the latter, bent double, & a very strong man in his prime.

 

She never heard her grandfather Martin referred to as being a layreader or teacher in the Church of England- so I think the Mr. Martin who is listed in the SPG Report for 182? as schoolmaster at BI Cove must have been a different man who left the place.

 

My comments: See also my notes of talk with her 1st cousin Mrs. Bessie Trask recently. NC Crewe Elliston, 6 Sepr 1958.

 

I am inclined to think the wife was Sarah Wiltshire married 1833 and he was perhaps the then widower (of Lucy). 25/9/58. NCC.

 

[TC Note – The school teacher there for a short time was Daniel Martin who was later ordained as an Anglican priest.]

NC Crewe note Nov 18,1958:

 

AJ Martin confirmed what I'd heard of Old George Martin, his uncle-- that he was, like his brother Joseph-- a carpenter and joiner of great natural skill, in fine workmanship-- that he was lazy-- and cruel to his wife. AJ said that George's wife was Maria Chalk, daughter of "Tamarind" John Chalk, who lived, like Lawrence Chalk, husband of Cassandra Oldford, on the Big Hill-- and that he burned her eyes out with a knitting needle.

 

I used to know why JC was nicknamed "Tamarind" -- as I suppose it-- in the vern'lr, Tam'urn-- short a.

 

George was full o' tricks. This I knew. I recall his only visit to my Foster father's house -- kitchen full of people and George telling of his encounters with ghosts--- he then used Iss for yes, only time ever I heard it. AJ told me that George would get a crowd of boys in his house, lay them around the floor to shape out a boat, telling one urchin he was the stem, another the corpitcher, etc--- then go out into the porch, suddenly return with a bucket of water which he'd slouse down on the kids for veris- imilitude.

The following was transcribed from the Twillingate Sun of Oct.8, 1887 by Joyce SIMMS of Tennessee.

From Beaver Cove:

 

Dead Bodies Picked up.  Fogo Oct 1.

 

On Tuesday last, 29th ult., a sad occurrence became known here.  A boat arrived containing the dead bodies of three fishermen, part of the crew of a craft that was supposed to have drifted from her anchors at South end of Change Islands on Sunday, 18th Sept.

On Tuesday, 27th. Jacob FORD and John FOOKS of Island Harbor went out gunning near the West end of Indian Island, and having shot a bird near the Gun rock, FORD proceeded to pick it up.  Noting grease or oil floating on the water, he was induced to look carefully at the bottom and discovered the body of a man lying on his face amongst a quantity of split cod fish.  FORD immediately proceeded home, and organized a searching party consisting of himself, William FOLEY, James BROWN, John FOOKS, Martin FOLEY and Samuel FORD.

 

On Wednesday they proceeded to Gun rock in a trap skiff and after a diligent search recovered three bodies and brought them to Fogo, where a magisterial investigation was promptly held by the energetic Stipendiary, and arrangements made by him for the burial of the bodies.  No 1, body was of a medium size, age, between 30 and 40 years, patches of black beard on chin, and the letters C. S. on the right wrist, the C being above the S, and on the left arm the name George A. CHALK in Roman capitals.  No 2 body seemed about 22 to 25 years of age, medium height, no beard or whisker and the letters J. M. on the left arm and an anchor on the back of the left hand. No. 3 body, medium height, red whiskers, round face and about 30 years of age, with letter A on left arm.

 

The Rev. Mr. EMBREE was invited by the Magistrate to attend the investigation with the view if possible of determining the religious denomination to which the deceased belonged.  Mr. STONE, in the absence of the Rector, represented the Church of England for the same purpose, it was agreed between the Magistrate, Mr. EMBREE and Mr. STONE, that the bodies be interred in the Methodist Cemetery.  The outside clothing was removed and the bodies, decently shrouded, were placed in coffins, brought to the Methodist Church and from that to the grave, followed by a sorrowing multitude.  Further inquiry tends to the belief that the boat belonged to Bird Island Cove.  A boat's compass was found in CHALK's pocket.

NC Crewe Note 27 July 1966:

 

Elliston, The Evening Mercury, St. John's, of 24 Oct 1887 has a letter from Bonavista, signed by RW Freeman and Geo. C. Frazer (who were the Methodist Ministers there), appealing for help in either money or provisions, for the dependents of the 5 men drowned near Change Islands in the loss of the fishing boat "Brothers" of Bird Island Cove on 18 September. The names are: John Chalk, age 47, widow and large family; William Coles, age 32, widow and 3 children as well as aged parents; Artellius Chalk, aged 27, widow and one child; George Chalk, aged 25, whose parents were depending upon their son for help; John Martin, aged 20.

[NC Note: Artellius & George were sons of Elias Chalk whom I recall as an old man; John was Elias's brother. All the men and the boat were from the North Side of BI Cove, and the boat was owned by a Coles family].

NC Crewe note Oct 26, 1966:

 

A letter from Memoria, Bird Island Cove, dated Oct 20, 1887, appears in The Evening Telegram, St. John's, on 26 Oct 1887. It says "--- unexpectedly our community has been involved in a cloud of sorrow, by the loss of `The Brothers' near Change Islands in the recent gale of the 18th ultima. The crew consisted of five men, who were all married, with one exception--- they had gone down to the Graois Islands, or thereabouts-- and were returning fairly well fished, when the sad accident occurred-- on last Lord's Day, 16th inst. the ordinary Memorial service was held in the Methodist Church, and conducted by the superintendent, Rev. R.W. Freeman. The deceased being Orangemen the brotherhood met in their Hall, and marched to the church-- the band rendered a few solemn and befitting tunes-- the church being filled to its utmost limit.

 

The sermon was preached from Exodus xv, 10-- many were weeping-- the preacher said they (the friends of the dead) mourned "not as those without hope, believing that to them sudden death was sudden glory, as they had been striving by consistent living to please God."

 

We-- appeal to our friends at St. John's-- to (send)-- them a little help-- Revds. Messrs. Freeman & Frazer will receive contributions.

 

[NC Crewe Note: The boat was owned by a Coles family of the North Side and 2 or 3 of the name were among the victims, plus at least three Chaulks inc. two brothers, sons of Old Elias Chaulk whom I remember and these were 1st cousins of my foster- father Alfred Crewe. The recovered bodies were buried in the Methodist cemetery at Change Islands.]

 

[TC Notes 18 Sep 1985 re: above "Brothers" fishing boat disaster 18 Sep 1887]:

 

Artelius & George Chalk were Grandfather Alf Chalk's brothers.

John was Grandfather's Uncle.

Artelius & Alfred were married to two Tucker sisters- Mary Jane & Adelaide.

William Coles was Grandfather Chalk's 1st cousin- being the son of his mother's brother. Alf's mother was Maria Ann Coles and her brother James had William.

 

Artelius and Mary Jane had one daughter- Sarah Jane- born in 1887- the same year her father drowned.

Sarah Jane was known as "Aunt Sis" to my generation- she lived with Grandfather Alfred while her mother remarried George Lodge in Port Union. Mark Lodge (with the one arm) is her half-brother.

1985- Some notes made re: Chalk family.

 

According to the Slade Co. letters of 1825 John Chalk, Sr. is listed with 14 souls. Himself, wife and 12 children or were there 12 people who were depending upon this particular fishing crew.

 

The following children were married by then and undoubtedly on their own or at least they were married but still partnered with family members:

 

Mary

m1804 to Philip Way.

Thomas

m1810 to Sarah Butler.

Elizabeth

m1822 to William Barnes.

Joseph

m1823 to Ann Faulkner.

John

m1825 to Catharine Carpenter.

 

later marriages of John Chalk's children, indicates that these two were still living at home:

Henry, m1834 to Elizabeth Clouter.

Robert, m1836 to Martha Miles.

 

Check others:

Martha Chalk!

Margaret bapt 1797.

Thirza m 1833 to James Hobbs

Ann m1834 to James Russell!!

 

William is listed separately as below and partnered with his brother in law William Barnes. [TC NOTE- There is no record of Barnes having children].

 

The Slade letters (1825) show William Chalk in Elliston with 7 souls- himself- wife and 5 children.

The children of William were most likely:

Elizabeth

b1823.

Hannah

b1817.

Thomas

b1824 (later found in Catalina with his wife Elizabeth).

Mary

b1819.

William

b1825. (later in Little Catalina, wife Elizabeth).

 

William is in Catalina 1837, in Little Catalina 1844.

 

His later children after 8 years without baptism of children.

 

Edward

b1833.

Eliza

b1834.

Henry

b1833.

Sarah

b1844.

 

The records for Sarah b1844, Eliza b1834 and Edward b1833 show them born to William & Nancy. [TC Note- this was not uncommon, particularly in England where the names Ann & Nancy or Nan/Nanny were often interchanged so I see no reason why this should not also occur in Newfoundland]. ?????In 1819 she was listed as Mary when their daughter Mary was baptised at Bonavista 02 Dec 1819.?????

 

The William Chalk who moved from Elliston to Little Catalina was married to Ann White and she died there in 1895 at age 103.

 

According to the late Ed Chaulk (born Walter Edmund Soper Chaulk 1898 in Little Catalina, son of  Edward John and Christine nee Tippett), his people came from Northern Bight, which was beyond Maberly & Flowers Cove. Ed Chaulk, who had brothers William & Joe Bobby, was no doubt a descendant of Edward Chalk above, who was born 1833 at Elliston.

 

[TC NOTE]- Ann White of George & Elizabeth b1778 and bapt 1790, 12 years old when bapt at Trinity, is not William Chalk's wife else she would have been 63 when Henry was born, and 67 when Sarah was born.

 

There was also a Thomas (1751-1815) & Mary existing in the Bonavista locale when a son Robert was born to them in 1815. I wonder if this was a brother of John Chalk, Sr.

 

Who was Richard Chalk born about 1820 and married to Amelia?- Daughter Amelia = William Coles. Check Richard Chalk in Fogo 1803!!

 

John Chalk is perhaps not the forerunner of all the Chalks in the Bonavista locale:

Thomas Chalk 1717-1796, buried at Bonavista, may have been the same Thomas born 1717 in Downton, Wilts.

 

Thomas Chalk 1751-1815; This Thomas is 2 years older than our John (probably John's brother)!!.

5/9/1958 Notes made by Nimshi Cole Crewe:

Hy. Geo. Chaulk [Henry George Chalk] was so ungainly, apishly tall that when he would stand erect he used to play with the sidestraps of his Wellington boots with his finger. Stewart Hill also recently spoke of his abnormally long arms. Edwin [Baker] says it was a saying that if Hy. George struck you you'd feel the blow "2 days away"; Edwin says Hy. George's daughter, Tryphena Chaulk (now a widow somewhere), when returning from the Labrador in a schooner, the Skipper and Mate becoming disabled (hurt) by the seas and the 3rd man frightened, took the wheel at Cabot Island and steered her till she ran ashore in Chance Cove, TB. Arthur Tilley, my brother in law, just tells me his father has told him the same thing about the boot-strap. NCC.

 

[TC Note; I think the story above relates to Tryphenia’s sister. Tryphenia died in Middleton, Nova Scotia as the wife of Thomas Theophilus Wells].

NOTES ON JOHN CHALK FAMILY.

 

John Chalk, born 1753, is attributed the destinction of being the first person to permanently and legally settle in Bird Island Cove, Newfoundland. Sometime after 1783, perhaps after his 1786 marriage to Mary Flinn, John Chalk of nearby Bonavista took up residence at Elliston.

 

Records indicate that a Thomas Chalk, born 1717, was living in Bonavista and he was most likely the father of John, likewise Thomas, born about 1749/1751, was probably John's brother. Susan Chalk who married James Oldford and moved to Salvage was in all likelihood a sister of John Chalk – she was born about 1750.

 

Giving birth to children at Bird Island Cove in these early days also meant that some children would never be christened and thus not registered.

 

A report made by the Slade mercantile firm in 1825, probably made to determine credit ratings, listed John Chalk and his sons with 14 souls (or dependants) living at Bird Island Cove.

 

The name was spelled Chalk in England but changed to Chaulk in Newfoundland. The original Thomas Chalk probably came from Downton, Wiltshire (son of Isaac & Mary) and his wife Martha was likely born in Bonavista.

 

When John first settled at Bird Island Cove, there were at least two Irish Catholic families already there viz: Hackett and Heaney (Meeney). [This according to Nimshi Crewe and Edwin Baker and repeated by others]. If so, these were temporary residents and very soon moved away. Following John there was an influx of settlers to the Bird Islands, from Bonavista, and England with a few Irish.

 

John's first child christened in the Bonavista Anglican Register was William in 1791. William lived for a while in Northern Bight, a now non-existent town between Maberly and Little Catalina. He eventually moved into Little Catalina where he is the forerunner of all the Chaulks there. This move to Little Catalina occurred after 1825 and William Chalk's sister Elizabeth, born 1806, married 1822 to William Barnes, probably moved to the Catalina area also. William Chalk's wife, nee Ann White, married in 1817, lived to the ripe old age of 103 dying in Little Catalina in 1895.

 

The following are also the children of "Old" John Chalk and Mary Flinn:

Child of John

Spouse

Mary

Philip Way;

Thomas

Sarah Butler;

Robert

Martha Miles;

Henry

Elizabeth Clouter & Hannah Baker;

John

Catharine Carpenter;

Joseph

Ann Faulkner.

 

The Chaulks on the North Side, Elliston, are descendants of Joseph Chalk, who is Mother's great grandfather- also Father's great great grandfather. Their son, Thomas Chalk, born 1825, bapt 1828 was buried in 1829 and the funeral was described by Rev. Wilson in his book.

 

Because of our different lines of descent from John Chalk we have been cheated out of several forefathers.

 

To my knowledge there are no descendants of John's son Henry in our area, in spite of his two marriages. One of his five children, Henry George Chalk, moved to Brooklyn, Bonavista Bay, where his descendants may be found.

 

I remember being told by the late Mr. Ed Chaulk of Little Catalina, that his people did indeed "come from Northern Bight". I would that William Chalk, son of William & Ann, born abt 1825 was the grandfather of the younger Ed Chaulk. Ed was a Veteran of WW1, turned down in Newfoundland because of his youth (lied about his age) and enlisted in the CEF in Cape Breton (Regimental Number 878033) I am also told that Ed was captured by the Germans and picked out of a Firing Squad line-up by a Nazi Officer in sympathy with his youthful looks. He was probably about 15 or 16 at the time [This according to some storytellers but the records indicate he was seventeen when he departed Cape Breton for England with the CEF]. This story didn't come from him, of course, because War Veterans very seldom related their exploits. My biggest regret is that I never talked to him much about the old timers and our common Chalk ancestry. The last time I saw Ed Chaulk his legs pained him so much that he proposed to tie an anchor to himself and to walk off the wharf.

Re: 1902.

Strange Tales of the Sea.

Offbeat History.

July 19, 1977.

 

Some years ago a reader at Elliston (formerly Bird Island Cove) Trinity Bay, wrote to this columnist (then in another medium) relating some fascinating experiences of Newfoundland seamen and fishermen of that place, or to be more precise the Maberly portion (or suburb) of Elliston. The first involved a man named Daniel Goodland and this particular incident took place in the year 1902 when Goodland was fishing on the Grand Banks in the schooner Gertrude in command of Captain Ned House.

 

One foggy day when the dories were all out fishing, baiting and hauling trawls the fog suddenly came in. All the dories made their way back to the vessel but one; she apparently drifted with the wind and the tide and was soon lost to view. The two men who were dorymates were named Robert Chaulk and Robert Pearce and both of them hailed from Elliston proper.

 

Captain House kept the Gertrude all night in the general area of where the schooner had been anchored when the dories set out, in hopes that when the fog lifted, the castaways would find their way back. But hour after hour passed and there was no sign, not even a hail; so she finally decided to weigh anchor and go in search of the missing boat and men.

 

So the Gertrude began to cruise, back and forth, and all around a vast area where they thought the missing men might be; but it was no use. Now comes the strangest part of this story that would seem to place it in the realm of rare, and odd occurrences that cannot always be explained by the ordinary processes of reasoning.

 

On the third night of the search, as the schooner stood back and forth across the area where they supposed the missing dory was still drifting about, one of the crew fell asleep on the chain-locker shortly before midnight. He slept for a short while, but very soundly. As he slept he dreamed that he saw a wide expanse of ocean and on it the missing dory coming from the northeast with her sail up.

 

It was a little after midnight when he awoke and he immediately told the rest of the crew what he had seen in his dreams. Sometime later, about two o'clock in the morning, the fog lifted and the lookout sighted the missing dory off to the northeast, under sail, as he reported. Needless to say, the missing men were soon safely aboard the Gertrude, and given a drink and a meal, though they were actually none the worse for their two days and three nights adrift with nothing much more than a plug of tobacco. As a matter of fact they still had a "chaw of tobacco" left.

 

[TC Note: Dan Goodland was married to a granddaughter of Joseph Chalk on the North Side, Elliston].

Somerset, England

 

Dear Audrey,

 

The Memorial University, St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada has a Marine Archivist who might have knowledge of the Inman ship line. St. John's, of yore, was a necessary port of call for most shipping companies from England even those destined for U.S.A.

 

My own personal interest is the Chalk/ Chaulk family. My roots go back to John Chaulk, born about 1753 -but we know not where. From death notices we have a Thomas Chalk b- 1717 and a Thomas b- 1751. This family lived in the Bonavista area of Newfoundland -we have their complete history here- but know nothing at all about their origin on your side of the Pond. Any info about the Chaulks would be appreciated.

 

St John's is an old English seaport going back to the days of Sir Humphrey Gilbert and ship lines sent out agents to live there- oftentimes these agents were family members.

 

Good luck,

Thomas R. Cole

Letter from Mr. A. Bending. Mrs. Bending's maiden name was Inman-Chalk. Letter received in the fall of 1985.

 

Mr. & Mrs. A.K.Bending (new address as of Dec'85)

Starcross, Devon

 

Dear Mr. Cole,

 

........as we are in the throes of turning out many years of things ....My wife... has concentrated on her mother; name of Chritchard from Axmouth, Devon but we do have some information about CHALKS in Devon. I have never seen any Chaulkes as yet. They are around Ashburton and Buckfastleigh and she has only got back to Thomas = Elizabeth Masden 23/1/1811 Buckfastleigh. From this you will see that Thomas Chalk is a name familiar to us.

 

Books about surnames imply that Chalks come from chalky grassland areas like Hampshire but we have never investigated there. Thomas Chalk, Woolcoombe, who married Elizabeth Masden is Audrey's great great grandfather and we both feel it is proven. Masdens were bakers and Thomas's son, Henry Aaron, became a journeyman baker, eventually Master baker and moved to Taunton, Somerset. One could speculate about possible forbears for they are there in abundance. Your letter refers to Thomases b-1717 & B-1751. Thomas Chalk and Charity... had a son Thomas c 17/4/1709 at Ashburton; Thomas Chalk married Obediance Skinner 24/8/1730 and had at least six children one of whom Thomas was born c1739. Thomas Chalk = Eleanor Norman 12/5/1763 Ashburton; Thomas Chalk = Sarah Walke or Webbe 3/10/1763 at Ashburton. Looking at Monkleigh we find Robert Chalk & Agnis had Thomas 17/3/1713; Thomas Chalk = Margaret Jenkins at Monkleigh and had the following: - Priscilla 1740, John 4/12/1743, Sarah 1746, Thomas 4/5/1749, Mary 1758, Ann 1761. The Monkleigh ones 1713 and 1749 are the nearest to your dates. Monkleigh is near Bideford n. Devon. Michael Chalk & Elizabeth Austin 8/4/1749 at Monkleigh and had Robert 6/7/1750 and John 22/4/1752 which doesn't seem many so perhaps they emigrated or she died in childbirth. When we have moved to Devon we shall be much nearer to the Devon Record Office and will probably be able to put more time into looking at the registers thoroughly for births, marriages and deaths.

 

It has been my experience in tracing My Bendings back to 1500s & Holcombes to 1600s that burial ages are + or - and not to be relied on. Even christening implies an infant a few weeks old but this may not be so. I have not had too many tombstones to examine despite looking. There were for example no Chalk MIs in Monkleigh churchyard. I was looking for Bunns and Audrey for Chalks and we were there last July. Spellings are not important. I do now remember seeing a Chaulke at Hatherleigh which we passed on the way to Monkleigh.

 

There would seem to have been Chalks at Ashburton in the late 1600s and at Monkleigh. At Plymouth in early 1700s there are a lot at Plymouth St. Andrews etc. We will be going into them more fully say in 1986 or 87 but at the moment have concentrated on one name to do a proper research rather than trying to find out Capt. Robert Poole c1750s, mariner, and all the other family names at one and the same time. We have not looked for Chalks that early other than in Devon so they may or may not be elsewhere as well but Audrey's seem to be rooted in Devon.

 

We will write to Memorial University of St. John's, if we don't come up with news of the Inman line in this country. We have a lead to follow at the moment.

 

Another problem with Ashburton is that it was a centre for an independent chapel or two and their christenings do not seem to be available. Marriages, by law, were in the Parish Church and so are recorded due to Hartwicke's Marriage Act. I presume you have looked in the IGI but it is not complete as a number of parishes are not included. Somerset has only 4% in the IGI which is worse than useless. We have not linked the Monkleigh and Ashburton ones and seem not to need the North Devon ones at the moment. What are the names of the children besides John and Thomas as one can attach some importance to similarities but as the pool of names was small this is not too profitable a thing to do. Your IRC had earned you some sort of reply and you are having it now as later we shall lose sight of all our books and papers into boxes and be quite unable to answer for a time. Sorry I cannot help more.

Letter from Jack Youatt in reply to my letter dated Jun 22, 1987.

England

June 29, 1987

 

Dear Mr. Cole,

 

Your letter on the subject of the name Chalk in the 1642 Protestation Returns was received this morning.

 

On looking at the printed copy edited by A. J. Howard I find only one reference to the name this is:-

Hundred of Ermington

Parish of Ugborough

James Chalk

It should be noted that the transcript from the 1642 Returns (the printed copy above mentioned) is incomplete for Devon with some 30 or so Parishes lost. Most of these were from the Devon/ Somerset border area of East Devon so I think the Chalk found is the only one - still that's my thought based on only the Printed Returns.

 

Your other query about Newfoundland I really have no idea but you could try the Devon Record Office at Castle Street, Exeter, Devon EX4 3PQ.

 

Although I wouldn't hold out a lot of hope since many Devon records, Wills in particular, were destroyed during an air raid in the last war. There is also the Public Record Office at Ruskin Road, Kew, Richmond, Surrey TW9 4DU.

 

Thank you for the IRC. Good luck with your research.

 

Yours sincerely,

Jack Youatt

Dear Mr. Coles,

 

I am also a member of the SDFHS. Yesterday I got a whole lot of info on Balch ancestors from Brewham, Som. They are not yet mine however I put them all away in my running list book (will most of them). I am stuck in London, Eng. at 1804. I have contact with a number of Balchs not yet related.

 

Fred & Grace Baulch, Islington, On. have been doing their tree (Balch/ Baulch/ Balth/ Baltch/ Bolch/ Bulch etc.

 

One of their earliest people is a Richard Balch married to Priscilla Chalk at Monkleigh, Devon. I have a note that Priscilla Chalk was a daughter of Thomas and Margaret Chalk. Priscilla married 1764.

 

Any help to you?

Understand that Belleville "Balch" are on the same line somewhere. You could contact Fred & Grace if you want also.

 

Sorry I don't have anything more on your nice list.

Dear Ruth (Cotton),

 

The Abel Chalk I previously mentioned was born 1878, Bird Island Cove (now Elliston); he was a son of Elias and brother to my grandfather, Alfred; Abel moved to Nova Scotia years ago.

 

Bird Island Cove was also called Bird Islands and Bird Isles. John Chalk (1753-1838) is purported to have been the first settler there. Unfortunately he was born before the beginnings of our existing parish register. For the same reasons there were several others that we cannot fit into our family tree. They perhaps relate to Thomas Chalk (1717-1796) and his wife Martha (????-1787). The children of John Chalk were: William (1797); Mary (1797); Thomas (????); John (1781); Robert (1800); Elizabeth (1806); Joseph (1806); Henry (1809); and perhaps others -- not baptised.

 

There was also a Thomas & Mary whose son Robert was born 1812.

 

Perhaps one of them moved northward and is your ancestor.

 

-"Foreman"- is not a common word in the fishery.-- perhaps your Abel was then a foreman of some inshore construction.

 

Benjamin Chalk is a familiar name at Elliston but not Adam or Abram.

 

I don't think you will find a baptism for your Abel at Bonavista. Have you investigated the references in Seary "to Chalk of northern Newfoundland? viz; Richard of Fogo in 1803; William from England or Wales-- Barr'd Island 1847;? John of Barr'd Island 1821?"

Dear Mr. Ware,

 

I have your name from "The Hampshire Family Historian"; I, too, am researching CHALK family. My particular interest is John Chalk (b 1753) and settled in Newfoundland. He was probably a son of Thomas (1717-1796) and his wife Martha (????-1787) who died at Bonavista, Nfld. If you have any idea where they came from I would like to know and also your own family interest.

 

Sincerely

Thomas R. Cole

 

Mr. Ware's reply, Aug 6, 1991.

 

Dear Mr. Cole,

 

I don't think I shall be able to help you in your research. In the first place I have only taken a lively interest in my ancestry during the last two years- and secondly I have begun this hobby very late in life- thus I can hardly be said to be a mine of information.

 

My connection with the surname Chalk derives from the fact that John Parton? Ware married Lucretia Chalk on the 7th November 1868 in the Parish Church of Shirley in the County of Southampton. I have recently acquired a copy of their marriage certificate and the following are the details.

 

The Registration District was South Stoneham. The marriage was solemnized at the Parish Church in the Parish of Shirley in the County of Southampton. Both bride and groom are given as "full age" and I know that JP Ware was 22 yrs old in the previous August, also his profession is given as blacksmith. The rank or profession of the bride is not given. The residence of both bride & groom is given as Shirley and their respective fathers as John Ware (Blacksmith) and William Chalk (Gardener). They were married according to the rites and ceremonies of the Established Church by Banns and the witnesses were William Chalk & Sarah Ann Pearce.

 

All of which, I'm sure you will agree, is not much use to a researcher hunting 18th century Chalks- but these personal communications are always worth a try.

 

As to my interest, I am trying to unearth Wares and in particular those associated with the village of Nursling and the hamlet of Lee- both south of Romsey- although the above JP Ware was born in Winchester, and he was packed off as a small child to be raised by his grandfather in Nursling. Unfortunately I have got stuck on a direct ancestor, one Thomas Ware who was born at Nursling in 1716; I just can't trace his parents.

 

One search which has helped me is the Mormon IGI and I am fortunate that the County Library at Norwich holds a copy of the latest edition in the form of micro- fiche.

 

I am sorry that my response has had to be so unhelpful- but if you are an old campaigner in this field you will have learnt to live with disappointments.

 

Yours sincerely,

RCJ Ware.

 

PS; With the aid of the Encyclopedia Britannica, Atlas and Gazetteer I was able to pick out Pickering.

Dear Mr. Ware,

 

You are perhaps a descendant of John Chalk married at South Stoneham 1832 to Mary Corbin.

 

I have noticed the name "Ware" at Stour Provost, Dorset.

 

Pearce was a familiar name also among John Chalk's neighbours in Newfoundland so maybe our families are connected. If you meet up with any references to Newfoundland I should like to hear of it.

Dear Mr. Cole,

 

I am a member of HGS and I noticed your article in this month's journal.

 

My enquiry is a very long shot - you mentioned the christian name of Tryphena. I am researching my father's family = Prince and I did think they came from Portsea St. Mary's parish in Portsmouth so I sent for the IGI listing and noticed that the name Tryphena appears in the Prince family:-

 

Alfred Prince married Adelaide Avis 22/8/1858 Portsea St Mary. Their daughter Amelia Tryphena Avis Prince was baptised 26/4/1866 Portsmouth St. Thomas.

 

I haven't any further information and don't even know if they are directly connected to my family who are proving very elusive. I am writing to hear from the War Office regarding my grandfather's army records in both world wars hoping that as he joined up under age he may have given details about his parents that I don't already have. His name was Albert Charles Prince born 19/12/1893 in Portsea but his parents Albert Prince m Betsy Lee were married in Gravesend, Kent the previous year.

 

My only excuse for bothering you is that I am curious about the name Tryphena. Do you think it is the name of a ship? I don't yet understand about the IRCs so I hope you will forgive me for not enclosing one and if I write again will make it up. There is an article in the same journal that they are not very convenient?? If you write perhaps you would let me know about them. As I work full time I have to fit this absorbing hobby into my lunch-hours and what other little free time I have.

 

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr. Cole,

 

In the latest Hampshire Family Historian you ask for information about Chalks in Hants in the 1700.

 

Just to be different, I don't know whether you are familiar with Chalks in the 1800s just over the border in Wiltshire?

 

I happened, yesterday, to be at the PRO looking at the 1851 census for Downton, a village s of Salisbury where some of my wife's ancestors lived. Indeed, in 1817 one of her distant cousins Thomas Honeywill married Ann Chalk at Downton.

 

In that 1851 census there were 14 Chalk families. Here are the household heads:

Whiteparish and Redlynch are close to Downton.

 

If this is of any interest to you I can let you have the details of the rest of their households.

Dear Mr. Jaques,

 

Thanks for your letter dated Feb 12, 1992 re; my query into Chalk ancestors. Downton could have been the ancestral home of my Chalk ancestors; I don't know where John Chalk (1753-1838) came from- he was married in Newfoundland 1786 to Mary Flinn and was the first settler at Bird Island Cove (now Elliston).

 

Those in the 1851 Downton census are all younger than Newfoundland John but they may be related.

 

I have noticed the name Honeywill before ie Richard Honeywill in St. John's, Newfoundland, c1771.

 

The only other Downton reference I have is Philip Bishop marriage to Avis Faulkner c1721. I am also researching Faulkners. (John Chalk's son Joseph married in Nfld. to Ann Faulkner).

Dear Janet,

 

Thanks for your letter dated 11 February 1992. The name Tryphena/ Tryphenia is repeated 7 times in my family researches and I don't know its significance, if any.

 

Interestingly, all the other surnames you mention are familiar in Newfoundland where my family history study is focused ie: Prince, Gordon & Avis.

 

There is a place named Princeton there, presumably named after a Prince family. I know of a Mr. Prince who moved from Charleston to Catalina about 30 years ago with a large family.

 

In Bonavista, Nfld. c1794 my ancestor Thomas Cole married a Susannah Avis (she had a sister Mary) and I know very little about this family. Years ago a previous researcher concluded that their name was Ayers and that the officiant wrote Airs which looks like AVIS. Personally I don't know what to think- Susannah was born 1774? and if you come across such a record in England I should like to know of it.

 

There was a Nicholas Gordon in Trinity, Newfoundland c1709 and a Samuel Gordon in Harbour Grace a century later c1807.

 

All for now,

Sincerely

Thomas R. Cole

Dear Mr. Cole,

I am a member of the HGS. I read your query in the Feb issue of the HFH.

 

I have been researching ancestors of my husband by the name of Chalk and Cole(s). I wonder if we have any material we could share or even if our research is connected? I shall give you a brief summary of our connection to these names. You will see the continuing connection of Chalk & Cole(s) families.

 

As research from here in Australia is fairly difficult, I have not proceeded any further on these lines but should like to hear from you on your family line. I have quite a lot of other material of both these surnames that I could check for you. Thomas Chalk and Jenny (Jane) Coles were my husband's 3X great grandparents. Incidentally in 1990 we visited Southampton and found the graves of Thomas and Jenny, also Stephen and Fanny, and Ann and Samuel, all together in St. Marys Churchyard, South Stoneham.

 

Hoping this is of interest and hoping to hear from you.

Sincerely,

Hazel Silverlock

 

From Hazel Silverlock:

Thomas Chalk = Janny (or Jane) Cole on 10 October 1796 at St. Michael's Southampton. Witnessed by Amelia Davis & Uriah Chalk. On 1841 census of South Stoneham both were aged 70 so born c1771, and Thomas was a gardener.

 

Their son Stephen Chalk was baptised on 01 October 1797 at All Saints Southampton, so far I have found no other children. Stephen Chalk = Fanny Francis on 31 July 1820 at South Stoneham witnessed by James Oddy and Robert Cole. Stephen was a market gardener- They had at least 8 children one of whom was Ann Chalk baptised 06 Feb 1825 at Minstead. Ann Chalk = Samuel Moyle on 11 July 1848 at Portswood. Witnessed by Henry Coles & Fanny Chalk.

Dear Hazel,

 

Received your letter dated 01 March 1992 re: Chalk / Cole/ Coles families. My Chalk ancestry is of John Chalk b1753 as stated in the HFS; His father was probably Thomas b1717; John probably had a brother named Thomas and most certainly had a son Thomas Chalk born in Newfoundland.

 

I believe my Cole ancestry is from Thomas Cole b1767 at Wimborne Minster, Dorset and my Coles ancestry is of George Coles. Cole & Coles both settled in Newfoundland.

 

The only other reference I have to South Stoneham is the marriage in 1832 of John Chalk & Mary Corbin.

 

Perhaps, with a little more research, we can connect with some of these family branches.

Dear Bernadette,

 

Received your letter dated 19 Jan 1993.

 

My ancestry is in Bird Island Cove (now Elliston), Newfoundland. John Chalk (1753-1838) is purported to have been the first settler there. Unfortunately he was born before the beginnings of our existing parish register at Bonavista. For the same reasons there were several others whom we cannot fit into our family tree. They perhaps relate to Thomas Chalk (1717-1796) and his wife Martha (????-1787). The children of John Chalk were: William (1797); Mary (1797); Thomas (????); John (1781); Robert (1800); Elizabeth (1806); Joseph (1806); Henry (1809); and perhaps others -- not baptised.

 

There was also a Thomas & Mary whose son Robert was born 1812.

 

I think my Chalk family were from Downton, Wilts., which is just across the border from your area of interest. There was a Thomas Chalk born there 1717 who was probably the same buried in Bonavista.

 

At Fordingbridge, I notice a Mary Chalk married in 1767 to Dan Collins; This would indicate that other Chalk's were there during, and perhaps before, your George Chalk.

 

Have you checked Ringwood at all for Chalk's?

 

At Rockbourne I am interested in WELCH family.

1950: The Fisherman's Advocate March 31.

 

The death occurred on March 17th of Mr. Alfred Chaulk, Elliston North, in his 74th year, following a very brief illness. It was but a day or so previous to his passing that we saw him on the South Side looking his usual self and chatting with his friends. With the passing of Mr. Chaulk the community has lost one of its upright and industrious citizens, a kindly neighbour and friend to all. He is survived by his widow, four sons, three daughters, one brother and two sisters, to whom our deepest sympathy is extended in their unexpected bereavement. Funeral took place on Sunday, attended by the L.O.A., of which deceased was a senior member, and a large concourse of citizens. Services were conducted by the United Church Minister, Rev. J.H. Slade.

Grade XI Students Take Up Duties

 

The only student who will be attending Memorial University from Elliston this year is Maynard Clouter who left yesterday to complete his preparations for Arts course, which he will take up at the opening of the University on Monday next.

 

Two other successful students of Grade XI class at Elliston Memorial School last year have taken up the teaching profession- Raymond Chaulk at Elliston intermediate UC Room and Frank Pearce at Anglican School, Newman's Cove. The remaining two of the five: Scott Goodland and Gerald Tucker left for Toronto some time ago where they will take up employment in other fields. We wish them every success.

TC Notes made to Doug Cole Sept 20, 1985:

 

Married 1880 at Elliston, Thomas Chaulk (1854-1935) (died age 81) married to Ann Chant (Wit Selena Chaulk- Tom's sister), This is Thomas of Benjamin & Sarah:

 

His children were:

 

(1) Frances 1881-1962, married Thomas Hobbs.

 

(2) Job 1883-1951, married Bertha Moss, her 2nd marriage to William Porter.

 

(3) Harriett 1885, married Sam Tremblett.

 

(4) Minnie 1888, married to Catalina man, Dot Little's mother. Dot & Ford Little's daughter, Minnie Little (about 49) named after this Minnie.

 

This is why Dot (Ford Little’s wife) was so adamant in the fact that Job (who married Bertha Moss) was her uncle.

 

The other Thomas of Robert born 1850 married 1896 to Louisa Chant and had George, etc. (if this were true then Louisa would have been his 2nd wife).

 

Ann Chant & Louisa Chant were two different people as we tried to determine last year.

 

According to births- Ann Chant b 1858 to George & Jane, Louisa Chant b1861 to John & Thirza.

 

Also Mary Jane Chaulk of Benjamin & Sarah married to Alexander Chaulk (1868-1944), of William Chaulk & Elizabeth Ryan.

 

The John Chaulk b1868 married to Mary Coles with son Job is John bap 1874 of John & Thirza.

Letter dated May 1, 1990 from:

 

Ruth Cotton

3206 Bruisee Rd.

Caro, Mi. 48723.

USA

 

Dear Mr. Cole,

 

Thank you for your letter inquiring about my great grandfather, Abel Chalk. I do not know when he was born but the first child (that I know about) which he had was born in 1859. My records show an Abel Chalk, his son, born in 1872 (see enclosed family sheet.

 

Most of the records which I have were sent to me by a researcher which I hired in St. John's. She has recently quit doing research and has given my records to someone else but I have not heard anything from her for some time. I still plan to continue to try to get more on the Chalk line.

 

I have enclosed my ancestor sheet any other information which I have found on the Chalk line.

 

I found among my father's pictures a very good picture of a Ben Chalk, whose father was Adam Chalk, brother to my grandfather, Hiram Robert Chalk. If you are interested in that picture or one of my grandfather, I have the negatives and could send you a copy.

 

I also found that my grandfather had a cousin named Abram Chalk. Do you know anything about him? I would be interested to know what family history you have on this family. I would be willing to pay for any copies you send me.

 

On the birth record found for Margaret Emma Chalk, one of the children of Abel and Martha Chalk, the record showed the father's occupation as a foreman and the mother's maiden name as Wellan (1870).

 

Abel was listed in the 1870 census as a Fisherman. He must have been a foreman in that occupation, but what he was foreman of is not known.

 

The above information is from the Vital Statistics #84, St. John's, Nfld.

 

This is my grandfather's record:

 

Birth record-

Hiram Chalk ( also known as Robert Hiram Chalk).

Born Aug 1861 at Barrd Island.

Baptised August 30, 1863 by Rev. Thomas Fox, Methodist.

 

Sincerely,

Ruth Cotton

Father jailed for assaulting baby, by Sam Pazzano:

 

A "grossly immature" father was jailed four years yesterday for inflicting "unimaginable violence" on his baby daughter.

 

"The accused dare not touch a child until his emotional difficulties have been resolved in his mind," Mr. Justice Victor Paisley warned Francisco Santana after sentencing him for the May 6, 1994 aggravated assault that almost killed his eight month old daughter Vanessa Chaulk.

 

"It's not enough, it's not enough," said Vanessa's mother, Patricia Chaulk, 19. "He received four years while my daughter will suffer for the rest of her life."

 

Santana, 22, of North York, dropped Vanessa about four feet and then violently shook the child in what Paisley described as a "moment of madness, anger or rage, otherwise inexplicable".

 

Santana was alone tending the child while the mother was tidying up her home for a visit by Santana's mother.

 

"Vanessa will never lead a normal life. The force used to cause these injuries was unimaginable... violent and repetitive," said prosecutor Donna Armstrong, who called for at least a five year sentence in addition to nine months in pretrial custody.

 

"Vanessa will never be able to run and jump. And her cognitive and speech abilities will always be affected by the injury."

 

Vanessa's massive brain injuries required the surgical removal of half her brain.

Dear Mr. Gaze,

 

Thank you for the information on the CHALK family of Downton, Wilts. and yes I would be interested in any records you care to share with me.

 

I am researching the CHALK family and it is possible that Thomas Chalk b1717 in Downton, Wiltshire, son of Isaac & Mary, is the same who is buried in Bonavista, Newfoundland. Is there anything in the Downton records to indicate that this Thomas Chalk of Downton actually does disappear from there, or was married there to his wife Martha?

 

Our roots are definitely traced back to a John Chalk who was the first settler in Bird Island Cove (now Elliston), Newfoundland. John's birth in 1753 precedes the surviving parish register at Bonavista making it difficult to ascertain that John was the son of Thomas & Martha, but this is likely since they were the first CHALKs in Bonavusta.

 

All for now,

Sincerely,

Thomas R. Cole

 

PS: Most of my other ancestors came from south of Downton and were employed by the Christchurch and Poole merchants in their Newfoundland service.

Dear Tom,

 

I enclose as much info: re CHALKs as I have. I hope you can sort it out! The original charts were sent to every living CHALK member by Chris Gash, now the Reverend Chris Gash, some years back & have been updated by me as events (deaths. etc.) have occurred, pages 1 & 2.

 

Some of the related families had spread to other parts of the UK & as far as SOUTH AFRICA, RHODESIA, WALES and other places. These far flung members are not necessarily CHALKs but descendants of descendants. Chris Gash's charts cover all the CHALKs & related lines. He got all his info from the Parish Records in Downton, Wilts. & all the other PRs he visited. Since taking HOLY ORDERS he no longer has time to follow up, but says he may be able to get back a good way further (as per enclosed letter).

 

Still, I hope the enclosed helps. A bit of a mess, but...!

 

Incidentally I correspond with a chap in London, Ontario, who was a former resident on this Park (Mobile Home), but returned to his native Ontario some years ago. His name is McCaskill & and he must be over 81. His last letter said "... if you don't hear from me you'll know why'! He had a heart attack & can't get about much - although he did tell me he bought a new car when he neared 80.

 

Like the song says 'Che sara, che sara'!

Dear Mr. Gaze,

 

Thank you for your periodic update on your branch of the Chalk family history. I am grateful for your interest, but regret that all I can do at the present is to file the material away, until I have more time available to chase up the family history.

 

As you can see, I too have moved to another parish, and the above is now my only and permanent address.

Tell me about your Chaulk

ancestors!

 

From Kevin Zalter, Nov 27 1997:

 

I'll begin with my father, Raymond Chaulk, born 1917 in or near a town simply called "the Gut".  Then during the early 60's moved to Deadmans Bay, Notre Dame Bay, about 3 miles away.  This was when Joey Smallwood, the premier, decided to merge many of the small communities throughout Newfoundland.

 

My Grandfather's name is Abel Chaulk, (born 1888) who was married to Louisa (Moss) Chaulk ,(born 1887) she is believed to be from the Charlottetown area of Bonavista bay.  Grandfather Chaulk lived all of his life in and around Deadmans Bay.  Abel's father was Robert Chaulk, his mother Mary Jane Day? Parsons? Goodyear? (Uncertain of surname) Louisa's parents were Tom Moss and Martha (Carpenter) Moss. Robert Chaulk had a father by the name of William Chaulk, This would make William my g g g grandfather.

 

Then there's John Chaulk (aka Tamarin "Jack" Chaulk) the father of William, and my g g g g grandfather.  John, Jack, was a pirate and had more than one wife at the same time.  It is believed that one of his wives was an Irish princess, the wife of another man which he literally stole from some small island off NFLD.  After stealing this woman he fled back to England, from where he had left and stayed there for a couple of years before sneaking back into Newfoundland and settling down with the his princess wife.

 

My ancestors came from England, possibly an area called the Chalk (Chaulk Downs).  There are also connections to Scotland, and somewhere in my family there are references to jewish ancestry, most probable my Grandmothers family.  It is believed that the first Chaulks came to NFLD. in the early to mid 1700's.  In NFLD. they settled in the Elliston and Charlottetown areas of Bonavista Bay.   If there is any other information that you could share with me I would greatly appreciate it.

 

Thank you, Kevin P. Chaulk

“Tamarind” John Chalk  (1818- ) was from Bird Island Cove (now called Elliston), married to Elizabeth Carpenter (1814-1897). Their children were Alexander, Maria, Lawrence, Serena, Emma, Charles- no record of a son William

 

What do you suppose the name Tamarind means? Don’t you think this is the same person? Having a nickname like that couldn’t be a coincidence!

Tom,

 

You are certainly on the right track with Ringwood!  David Quinton, former producer of 'Land & Sea' programs, who made a trip over there a few years ago, with Dr Gordon Handcock, claims that we should also be looking at Breamore, HAM; and Downton, WIL.

 

In Downton, WIL, there are Quintons married to CHAULK, HUMBY - good NF surnames. And, a William QUINTON md Hannah WHITE, in Downton, 28 Nov 1816.

 

Is it White, Whitt or Witt? Sure need your wits about ya! In the early parts of the Trinity register I think I noticed the name Whytt.

 

And, how about LeBlanc - didn't a family of them settle on the west cost (NF) and change it to White?? Must see what I can find on that.

 

Sarah WHITE d. 25 Jan 1795, in the Trinity Index, Ref # 1766.

 

I have kept your info and will continue to try to connect with those names. I have heard that name MINCHIN before - but where?? PEI, maybe??  Nope, not listed in 'England to PEI' but I'm sure I have seen it in some of the Cemetery transcriptions I have. Not indexed, of course, but I'll have a scan soon.

 

Meanwhile, I'm struggling with a computer update. Have to get used to Windows 95 and the PAF 3.0 and I'm not sure either is installed correctly/conveniently.

Hi Thomas,

 

Thomas Chalk was born in 1826 in England and died in 1878 in Burnt Islands, NF.  He had a brother named John.  I don't know their parents names.  Thomas had sons named James H. and Frances.  I don't know anything about Frances only that he also spelled Chaulk without the "u".  James married Jane Smeridge (some debate in the family if it was Smeridge or Thorne). My grandfather, George, says that Smeridge was the Harris side of his family and Thorne was the Chaulk side, but his half-brother, Calvin, says that Smeridge(Sumridge) is on the Chaulk side because he doesn't know of any Thorne's being in his family tree.) James and Jane had 5 children that I know of.  George William-my g grandfather (b. Oct. 1897), Thomas, John, Martha and Julia.  All of the children spelled their names as Chaulk not Chalk as recorded by Thomas.  I have seen information with James using both spellings.

 

Are you connected to the Chaulk's?

They have Attestation Papers, which are the documents signed by entrants -gives enlistment date, description, religion, results of medical exam, birthdate, next of kin, where born, etc.,.

Are the documents accurate? A family tradition is that Edmund Chalk attempted to enlist in Newfoundland, refused due to underage, then lied about that in Canada!

   Many thanks for the information that you sent along re-the Chaulk family. Any and all help is more than appreciated.  As I have mentioned before, Mary Ann Chaulk married Thomas L. Lodge (parents of my paternal Grandmother Jessie Lodge who married Joseph Hussey of Upper Island Cove).

   Mary Ann had at least one sister that I am aware of--named Harriet Chaulk and she married a man by the name of Gideon Cuff.   One of Mary Ann and Thomas' daughter, Elfreda Lodge married one of Harriet and Gideon's sons--William John Cuff-- a case of cousin marrying cousin.   If you wish I can provide you with the names, dob and dod's of the children of Mary Ann (Chaulk) and Thomas Lodge as well as those of Harriet (Chaulk)and Gideon Cuff.

    Looking forward to hearing from you anytime-

    All the best from both Bill and myself--Martha

Joseph Chalk, who married Ann Faulkner (if you ever get to see the register - Faulkner looks like joyner, but is a phonetic spelling i.e. Fogner) was a son of John Chalk and Mary Flinn.

I am also very interested in the Chaulk family. My mother is a Notre Dame Bay Chaulk. In reviewing your records I assume that both Richard is a Notre Dame Bay Chaulk's, that Thomas is a Bonavista Bay Chaulk and that John may be both.

 

Thomas (1717-1796) wife Martha (1720-1787) both buried Bonavista. [same?? bapt??? Jan 28, 1717 Downton, Wilts., son of Isaac & Mary].

 

John Chalk m1786 at Bonavista to Mary Flinn.

 

From Matthew's files I also show a jos. being bapstised to jn. and mary in bonavista, 1806.

 

Joseph (son of John & Mary) b1806 m1823 at Bonavista to Ann Faulkner.

 

An addition to your list might be William Chaulk. Colonial Records for 1758 show a William living at Tilting. Also Lester's Diary for 1769 show him at Tilting. Slade's Register's indicate that he is in the Fogo area from 1783 to 1792.

 

William & Mary born abt 1720 at Bower Chalk, Wilts.

 

The Fogo 1836 Census shows Richard Chaulk as being over 60 years old.

 

A Richard Chalk born 1706, Downton, Wilts., son of Joseph Chalk and Hannah (nee Chalk) m1733 to Sarah Wheeler, died there 1775.

 

A Robert Chaulk was in the same 1836 Census; his burial indicates that he was born in the year 1800.

 

The only indication in my family of a link to the old country is a family tradition that the original Chaulk left a 'past' there and in no way wanted to go back.

 

I hope my information is of some use, and of course I would be willing to share any further information regarding Chaulks or otherwise.

Thomas CHALK (1717-1796) went to Newfoundland - wife Martha (1720-1787). Perhaps the same Thomas Chalk born 1717 at Downton, Wilt., son of Isaac Chalk and Mary LAWES. Require marriage of Thomas & Martha.

 

Also require background on the following:

Mary CHALK married 1722 at Ringwood to Thomas WHITE.

Susannah CHALK married 1700 at Downton to Joseph BUNGAY.

Ann CHALK married 1746 at Ringwood to John BROWN.

Hello Thomas

 

I recently extracted all the early Chalks from the Downton registers and I'm afraid your Thomas and Martha marriage isn't there.

 

Thomas Chalk, son of Isaac and Martha was actually baptised 28 Jan 1716 - though of course the new year did not start until the end of March so it's one of those dual dates. I have all Thomas's brothers if you want them. The only Susanna I have is Sausana Chalk, d/o John Chalk who was baptized and buried in 1654.

 

I will keep an eye out for Thomas and Martha as I am researching other lines in the parishes around Downton.

Hi Tom,

I greatly appreciate the information you have provided to me on my father's side of the family. I don't know a great deal about my mother's side except that her name was Ella Frances Oldford. Her father was Tobias Oldford and her mother's name was Elizabeth Chaulk [maiden Name]. Elizabeth had a brother Herbert Chaulk.

If you could assist me in any way with my mother's side of the family I would greatly appreciate it. I'm finding this mission to be very interesting indeed.

 

To tell you a bit about myself, I'm the youngest of four brothers in my family. I have been a school teacher for 29 years and will retire this year in June. I'm married and have two children a boy and a girl both in University. I maintain a summer home at Bunyan's Cove where I visit quite often. I visit Elliston whenever possible to observe the birth place of my father. I don't know too much about you but you must keep yourself busy I'm sure.

 

Look forward from hearing from you.

Hi Bill,

 

Didn't Elizabeth Chaulk (who married Capt Toby) have a brother, Theophilus, who died in the Great Newfoundland Sealing Disaster? Brother Herbert James was married to Edith May - but who was she? Brother Isaac John died as a very young man in Bunyan's Cove. Brother Adam born 1881. Sister Agnes who died as a child. Sister Ella married to John Squires. Elizabeth was born in 1877, daughter of Charles Chaulk and (Elizabeth) Ann Porter.

 

You may be interested to know that my Grandmother Cole was a Porter and my Grandmother Chaulk was a Tucker.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for your latest information. It has been very helpful. Regarding Edith May. She was married to Herbert Chaulk my grandmother's (Elizabeth) brother. She also had a brother Hubert Squires. This might help to pinpoint her.

Hi Tom,

I would just like to obtain a little more information on my grandmother Tucker's side of the family. She was married to Alexander my Grandfather. I know she was a Duffett and that she had a sister who married a Kennedy and they may have had a son James and a daughter name unknown who married Issac Chaulk of Elliston. They had one son Peter whom I know off and there may have been others but I'm not aware. Any information on my Grandmother Tucker would be appreciated. I think I can then be able to create my family tree.

SIX MEN DROWNED. SKIFF CAPSIZES

On Sunday, November 1st, a trap skiff, with six men, was capsized, and immediately sank, while beating into Fredericton, and all of the occupants were drowned.  The boat came from Apsey Cove, near Ladle? Cove, and the names of the men who lost their lives are:  Ernest CHALK and son, Garland, Ammon CHALK, Samuel ALKINS two sons, Jerry and Alpheus, and Joseph COLES. It was blowing a gale from the west at the time of the accident, and the skiff was under short sail. Saturday last the boat was found on the bottom by searchers, and also the bodies of Joseph COLES and the two ALKINS, but there was no sign of the bodies of the three CHALKS.  The happening has cast a gloom over the settlement to which the men belonged, and also the nearby places, and not in many years has there been such a fatality. Men are still searching for the missing bodies, but it is expected they have been taken away by the tide and sea.

Hi there,

 

Excellent web site and information you have there!  I am a "Chaulk" and my family is from Elliston.  I now live in Fort McMurray, Alberta, but frequently visit my roots back home!

 

> Here's a little branch of my family tree.....

 

My grandfather was Robert Chaulk (d 1976) and his second wife was Annie (Goodland d 1974).  His first wife was Bina (Murphy d 1920's sometime).

 

Robert and Bina had one daughter:

 

Violet (Trask - married to Roger Trask d 1967 2 days before I was born) who has several children.  Rod, Randy, Carson and Dee.

 

Robert and Annie had the following children

 

Daphne (married Harold Boone and have lived in Ontario since the 1960's or 70's) Have 5 daughters.

Raymond (married Jessie) and has 3 sons and 1 daughter

Jean (married Rose)  has 1 son

Anthony (married Joan Romaine from Newmans Cove - my parents).  They have 4 sons all in Alberta.

 

I don't currently follow my family tree, but my Aunt Jean has it done back to about 1800.  I plan on getting a copy and doing some work on it.

 

Thanks again for the great information site on the Chaulks. I am writing from work right now, but my home email is stratford@shaw.ca

Your mother's cousin, Emily Chaulk (Dean) (Powell) (1897-1989) died in Michigan, over 90. Perhaps the Dean family (LaPeer - does that sound about right) or the family of Sam Chaulk (1902-1976) in Flint will have some old photos. Failing that, then I think the best bet would me Vera Cole, only child of Heber & Sarah Jane, in whose home Julia died.

 

Pretty sure that's him, if so, please find out if Uncle Sam & Aunt Alice left any old 8mm movies of their trips to Nfld. I really don't think they would know a great deal about family history in Nfld, but some people could surprise you.

Tom, I have an addition for one of the families listed in Families of Elliston. I will drop a line to your brother to mention it to him but I thought you would want to know as well. I don't have his e-mail address but do have his home address.

 

On page 25 in the book--for the family of Joseph Chaulk m Rebecca Porter there was another daughter--Harriet Chaulk (Aug.20,1865-July 9,1943) who married Gideon Cuff (Jan.1,1847-March 11, 1947).They married Dec.26,1896. I am in touch with one of Harriett and Gideon's sons, Trevor Cuff, who has sent me the family information I don't know that you would be interested in having it but if you are I can send it along.   Also must mention that Harriett Chaulk was born in Bird Island Cove, according to her son, Trevor Cuff. It wouldn't be difficult to miss a name.

 

Also Mary Ann Chaulk (my Great Grandmother) (b.Jan10, 1859) died Jan .20, 1938. Her husband Great Grandfather Thomas L. Lodge's dates were b.Oct.29, 1857-d.July 8,1941.

 

I didn't know there was a brother George before reading the book.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you any time--it's always a pleasure.

 

Bill and I send our very best wishes for a Happy Easter to you and yours.

 

As Always--Martha

Jim,

In this photo Alf Chaulk on the right, old Charlie Martin in the middle and according to my mother (Uncle George Chaulk) on the left. I am inclined to think that she was mistaken by "Uncle George Chaulk" since he drowned in a schooner mishap way back in 1887, about thirty five years before my mother was born. Besides in Newfoundland nearly everyone was called Uncle. I believe this was grandfather Alf’s cousin, George Chalk who died in 1929 at age 77.

The Newfoundland Quarterly, vol lxxiv, no 2 – Summer issue 1978 pg 11.

Also same page:

Capt John Chaulk, who lives in Carmanville (1978), wrote from that place on December 18th, 1929 to the fisherman’s paper a letter of thanks to the people of Lumsden (Cat Harbour)”

 

Capt Chaulk at that time was in the Tokalou. “ He said they left Loo Cove on December 1st, but only got as far as Lumsden, where for fourteen days the wind blew a gale from the north west. They spent the days on the schooner easing her the best they could but came ashore at night and were looked after by the people of the place. The Tokalou  survived.”

Hi, my name is Karen Darby. I am searching for information on Richard Pardy and Elizabeht Jane Chaulk that were married in October of 1881. I do not know either of their parents names.

Hi Karen,

Elizabeth Jane (or June) Chalk bn 1860 was a daughter of Joseph & Rebecca (nee Porter). Her sister Mary Ann married Thomas Loyal Lodge & sister Harriett married Gideon Cuff. (all three at Catalina).

 

Joseph Chalk/Chaulk was a brother to my great grandfather, Elias Chalk. Sorry I cannot help with Richard Pardy but he is likely from Bonavista.

Re: name Chaulk
 
my father is one of 18 from nfld, his name is al, my grand father was fred and my grandmother was blance. from what i know it is british and irish decent. the original name was chalk derived from those that worked in the chalk mines in england. i believe that our family were considered minor landholders. the other forms of chaulk are chalk, chaulk, chalke chaulke chaulkie.
thats about as much as i can think of off hand.

Hi Allan
This was Fred Chaulk and his wife Blanche Trask. There were from Elliston (once called Bird Island Cove). I believe they went to Corner Brook - is this correct?
