The Harbour Grace Affray
Dec. 26, 1883

(excerpts of Newfoundland names)

 
Howard, Mildred. Undated. [I purchased my copy in 1989, so dated then or earlier] The Harbour Grace Affray. Published by the author. 126 pp.

On December 26 1883, a confrontation between the Orangemen (Protestants) and Catholics of Harbour Grace resulted in the deaths of 5 men. Subsequent investigations and trials failed to convict any of the participants on either side. Mrs. Howard presents the testimony of the witnesses to the conflict. It includes considerable genealogical information for a large number of people, primarily from Harbour Grace but also including Carbonear, Tilton, Spaniard’s Bay, Victoria Village, St. John’s, Torbay, Caplin Bay, Bishop’s Cove, Bryant’s Cove and Twillingate.
