From the Thomas R. Cole Collection
First Born in Bonavista



From a letter dated 14 March 1764, written in Poole Harbour by George Davis, Merchant and Newfoundland trader, to Capt. James Cook:

          "...Mrs. Fizzard/ Tizzard? was born in Bonavista whose 
uncle Mr. John Walcome was the first man- child born there  who 
was 80 years old when he dyed and has been dead upwards of 30 
years..." [TC Note: born 1654].
