"Jan. 3rd, 1821. Married, Francis Barnes and Anne Baston, of English Harbor." ...
The daughters became the wives of the men who came later, and the sons died young, hence the name Lockyer died out in English Harbour. Whilst scores of family names in Trinity have entirely disappeared, it is interesting to notice that the very oldest names are still represented here. These names are Tavernor, Jones, Rowe, Tibbs and Ivamy. They appear, however, in the record of baptisms of 1753, showing that the parents of those children then baptized, had been married before the coming of the first resident clergyman (Rev. Benjamin Lindsay) as his first marriage was, as I have pointed out, in 1757.
I now give dates of the beginnings of some families still in Trinity.

How the Money Went. Snow Shoveling at Holyrood.
Appended herewith is a copy of one of the returns in connection with the Government's famous snow shoveling campaign in Harbor Main district just previous to the Bye-Election last March. This return sheet shows that the amount of $233.31 was allocated on account of special work, viz snow shoveling at Holyrood. The report is signed by C.R. Kennedy who received $11.11 cents, or 5% for commission. Mr. Michael Kennedy as foreman who evidently put in four hours more time than any other man received as his share $15.00 at a rate of 50 cents per hour. Whether the rate of pay which on other public roads was 25 cents per hour, was in this instance raised as an inducement in view of the election, the return sheet does not state. The discrepancy in the amount of work given would point to discrimination and readers may judge if it was used in favor of the Government candidates Messrs. Hawco and Furey. The pay for all the workmen was 40 cents per hour, and the list is given herewith: -
A report was current in the city at the time of the Election that all the snow in Harbor Main had been shoveled away. The return of 40 cents to the department of works would seem to be proof that the rumor was correct.

Whilst preceding along Hamilton Street yesterday afternoon an aged woman named Hynes, who lived on Maple Street, off Freshwater Road, was knocked down by a bicycle ridden by a young man named Campbell and died a few hours later. The victim of the accident, who was 78 years of age, was picked up by Campbell, who had her driven in a motor car to the house of Dr. McNearn, where she was attended to by Dr. Roberts, who said she was dangerously ill. She died at an early hour this morning. An enquiry will be held into the accident later.

Loss of Schrs. Hopewell and Waterwitch. And Nineteen Lives. [Note: This is a repeat of a news item from 1875, not something from 1921. - TPH]
Two most distressing marine disasters involving the loss of nineteen lives will long make memorable the storm of last Monday (Nov. 29th, 1875). The early part of the evening was moderate enough, and about four o'clock a craft called the Hopewell, owned by Messrs. Joy of Harbour Main left here for Harbour Main with eight souls on board, including the three brothers Joy (owners of the boat) and a quantity of provisions. Towards dark a gale sprung up, with heavy snowdrift, and at eight o'clock it was at the height of its fury. The Hopewell stuck on Biscan Rock near Cape St. Francis, and in a very short time was broken up, all on board but one man going down to a watery grave. The survivor, named Waugh, got onto a rock and there he remained all night and a great part of the next day. When the S.S. Hercules neared the spot, on her service to Conception Bay, about noon on Tuesday, this poor fellow was seen waving a handkerchief, and Capt. Blandford, of the Hercules, promptly manned a boat and sent her with a strong crew to effect his rescue. The waves ran so high at that time that they could not get near enough to throw a line within Waugh's hold, and a second and third attempt were made before they succeeded in reaching him with a rope and lifepreserver. After three hours spent in the utmost endeavours for his safety, Waugh was pulled off on board the Herculea in a most exhausted condition, but, at all events, saved by the heroic efforts of Capt. Blandford and his crew.

Fined For Using Trawls.
It is the same in connection with my own family name. Though we spell it Lockyer, the old clerks frequently have entered it Lokier. They did that because it gave phonetically the correct Hampshire pronunciation of the name. It looks as though some names strangely and quickly departed from the original. For instance: - On March 3rd 1783 I find the following entry of baptism: "James, child of Jasper and Ann Hitchcock."
Then three years later, November 15th, 1786, I find the following entry: Baptized "Jasper, child of Jasper and Ann Hiscock." The same persons with surname changed, and permanently changed. ...

Note: The use of the personal pronoun "I" in some of the articles below, refers to the original author of the newspaper article. This was Canon William Lockyer, the Anglican clergyman in Trinity, who wrote a number of historical and current pieces for the newspaper of the day. The excerpts I have presented are only a small portion of any given piece - they are extremely interesting for anyone with an interest in Trinity or vicinity, but I do not have sufficient time to transcribe them in full.

Fire at Salmonier.
The entry in which William Alexander's name occurs for the first time reads as follows: - "July 28th, 1813: Married, William Alexander, of the parish of Campbell Town, Argyleshire, North Britain, and Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas and Christian Newell of Trinity."
Mr. and Mrs. Alexander wrote their names, respectively, in connection with the entry; and this is a rare thing to find in marriage entries of those years and indicates that the persons were above the ordinary in education. The marriage was witnessed by George Skelton, J.P.; and James Pointer Garland J.P.
Mr. Alexander was born in "North Britain" (Scotland) in the year 1784. He came to Newfoundland about the year 1800; but just how he came or where he landed, I am not quite sure; though from what I have heard from the old people they say he came out as a young man in one of Slade's vessels to Greenspond; and for several years he held a responsible position in connection with Slade's business there. In this position he got a practical idea of Newfoundland business; and then he decided to go into the business for himself in Bonavista, about the year 1810. He employed one Mr. Strathie and it looks as though Mr. Strathie brought much of his material with him, as the house is still standing and in good repair - and we do not wonder at that, for its frame is largely of English oak.
Then he came to Trinity for a wife, in 1813. No family was more highly respected at that time than that of Thomas and Christian Newell; and from that family Mr. Alexander selected the youngest daughter, Elizabeth, and they were married as recorded in the entry I have already quoted. Then they went to Bonavista to live, and during the next nineteen years William Alexander was principal business man in the place. During those years two daughters and three sons were born to them. A photograph of Mr. Alexander (now in possession of Rev. Canon Bayly) taken when he was about forty years of age, represents a man of intellect and good nature. During the month of June 1928, Mrs. Alexander was taken seriously ill. One day she grew suddenly worse, and as Mr. Alexander hurried up the stairs to her bedside, his haste and anxiety were too much for a weak heart, and he fell dead on the stairs, aged 44 years.
Mr. Robert Alexander (one of William Alexander's sons) was connected with the business of Messrs. J. and W. Stewart in St. John's for several years; and died suddenly in England as he was about to leave for Newfoundland. He was a rich man and one of the many bequests in his will for the public good, was a thousand pounds, the first contribution towards building the Old Seaman's Home in St. John's.
Mrs. Archibald Graham, of Trinity, in 1823, was a sister of Mrs. William Alexander, and in the baptism of a son born to Archibald and Hannah Graham in that year, the surname Alexander was used as a Christian name - hence Alexander Graham. .... W.J.L. Trinity, April 12, 1924.
Information for Enquirers Re Hannah Newhook
Hannah Newell Newhook was born in 1802. She was a daughter of Chas. and Catherine Newhook; and a sister of Mrs. (Capt.) George Field, Bonaventure. She married Thomas Gaylor, Jr. of Bonavista in 1826. She was a widow for several years, and she died at the home of the Newhooks at Long Point (Trinity East) in 1867. Thomas Gaylor, Jr., was a son of old Captain Thomas Gaylor of Bonavista, who was well known in Trinity during the years of his sea-service; and widow Gaylor had many friends in Trinity.
Some months ago one of the present generation of the Miller families in Bonaventure, asked me if I would kindly give them some information as gathered from the old Church Books, re the coming of his ancestors from the Motherland to Bonaventure, and what part of the Old Country they came from. Probably the person has decided long ago that I was not working very hard about it. This, however, is not so, for I have spent a good many hours looking for the name Miller in the old Books. Whilst I have carefully tabulated some ninety entries including the name Miller, from 1760 down to 1825, I have not been able to get a consecutive history of them.
There are two reasons for this:
Where only one man of the same name came out from the Old Country, and his birthplace is included in his marriage entry, it is easy to trace him and the family, through the Marriage, Baptism and Burial entries, right down to the present, as I have frequently done. With the Miller family of Bonaventure this is not so, and whilst I believe they are all of Somerset stock, yet I have to admit in efforts to give the family lineage.

Violent Assault by Escaped Lunatic.
On Thursday evening last, a male patient of the Lunatic Asylum escaped, and made his way homewards to North Arm, Holyrood, arriving there Friday night. At that place a 3 year old boy named Kelly, attracted his attention. The lunatic, so it is stated, badly maltreated the child.
Seizing him by the stomach in his powerful grasp, he attempted to disembowel him. He then took the child by the arm and smashed the limb. The authorities were notified of the lunatic's escape and fortunately Constable Grouchy rounded him up and brought him back to the institution. The child will recover from his injuries.

Rev. G.B. Pickering, B.D., who has been pastor of the United Church here for the past five years, notified his congregation on Sunday last of his intention of accepting a call recently received by him to the pastorate of Wesley Church, St. John's. Rev. Pickering came to this country from England in 1906 and entered the Ministry of the Methodist Church. He attended Mount Allison University for three years, graduating in 1912. He has served in several districts among which are Sound Island, P.B., Victoria, Lower Island Cove, Blackhead and Harbor Grace. In 1923 he was elected assistant Secretary of the Conference and Secretary in 1927 and in 1928 was elected President of the Conference. Rev. Pickering endeared himself to the members of his congregation during his term of office here and he and Mrs. Pickering have made many friends here who while regretting their departure wish them every success and happiness in their new home.
