Bonaista Bay Distict



 A snug little cove between Goodmans Island and Richards Island, two islands 
 that form part of the enclosure around Barrow Harbour. As far as is known, 
 HANCOCK is the only family to have resided here permanently(1840s - 1920s). 
 The cemetery is at the eastern end of Goodmans, among a grove of evergreens. 
 In September 1999 there were two marble headstones with writing, one small 
 marble marker with no inscription and six slate slabs stuck on end with no 
 inscriptions. The two inscribed were as follows:
           In                                              Stephen
        Memory                                             son of
