    Description:Loking for info on Maggie Billings (nee ???) (born 1857) who had children (1)David born 1880 married Elizabeth Slaney Born 1889 (2) John born 1884 married Mary (3) Michael born 1873. This info was listed in the 1921 census , Maggie was a widow then so there could be more children born between 1873 and her husband's death. I can't find this family anywhere before 1921. I can only assume that when widowed the mother brought her children home to her family or she moved with her grown children.

I suspect he came from around Exploits, but I cannot find any records of him. I was hoping there might be something in a family Bible or something. The records show that Samuel (locally called Sammy) Budgell also lived there for a time. I spoke to a older person originally from L. Brehat and he thinks Sammy and Henry were brothers. According to Nathan Budgell in the Prologue to his book, A Newfoundland Son, his forebears, the Budgell's and the Langford's came from Fowey in Dorsetshire and from Great Yarmouth around 1774. It is not clear as to which family was from where. Has anyone traced the Budgell's to their place of origin in England?

Archibald left at least five children orphans (4 girls, 1 boy - ages 12 years to possibly infant) who were sent to Indiana and placed in homes where they assumed the foster family name. The son, John Charles Butt was born 25 May 1877 (died Sept 1954), became John Charles Irwin and my great-grandfather. Would like clarification of parentage and siblings. Thanks.
