BARNES, Hubert
Evening Telegram   December 27, 1921 (Tuesday)

Obituary. English Harbor is so much the poorer as the result of a visit from the Grim Reaper Death to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Hubert Barnes, and the taking from them of their eldest son Hubert, at the early age of 18 years. Hubert was one of English Harbor's most promising citizens, and although quite young, he had experienced a career, which could not but possibly have marked future successes for him, but "He who rules all things" ordered otherwise. The deceased received his early education at English Harbor, and having adopted teaching as a profession, he accordingly attended Bishop Field College during the winter of 1920 with marked success. He was eventually sent to Milltown, Bay D'Espoir, and remained there one school year. He spent his summer holidays of this year at home, returning again to Milltown in August. In October he contracted an exceptionally heavy cold, the effects from which he never recovered. Failing health and acting on medical advice prompted him to proceed home, arriving here on Dec. 12th. Apparently hopes for his recovery were bright, but the journey by steamer and rail had its demoralizing effects. Each day saw him become weaker, and on Sunday, 18th inst., at 5 p.m., his spirit passed to "Him who gave it." He was laid to rest in the quiet little Anglican Cemetery on Wednesday, the burial service being conducted by Mr. G. Penney, Lay Reader. A father, mother and brother are left to mourn the sad loss of their dear one, to whom the heartfelt aympathy of the community is extended.

Leave we now thy servant sleeping."

BARRON, Michael
Daily News January 24, 1916 (Monday)

On Thursday morning 20th inst., death visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. P. Barron, and took from them their beloved child, a bright little boy of just three years of age. Although ailing for only ten days, his death was not quite unexpected as the disease which claimed its little victim was of a serious nature from the very beginning. "Michael" was a sturdy little lad for his age and being of a merry, winning disposition, was a great favourite with all who knew him. His bright face and babyish prattle will be sorely missed in the home to which God lent him for a brief space, but there is consolation in the thought that he is gone to join the Heavenly throng of Angels. Mr. and Mrs. Barron have the sympathy of the whole community in their bereavement.

BATSON, Captain Arthur R.
Daily News    October 8, 1918 (Tuesday)

A few days ago Henry G. Batson of English Harbour, T.B. received a message stating that his son, Captain Arthur R. Batson, M.C., C.E.F. was killed in action on September 2nd. While his parents realized that a soldier's fortune was his, yet his death came unexpectedly as they did John's, as he spent his early years here and was closely identified with the C.L.B. About ten years ago he went to Canada settling in Brooke, Alberta, when war broke out he went, at his own expense, five times to Calgary to enlist, but owing to such numbers seeking enlistment he was not accepted until December of that year. In the spring 1915 he went overseas as a private and in the following spring was mentioned in dispatches and was made Lieutenant for following services. "At a time when the situation was uncertain he went forward alone and cleared it up by a personal reconnaissance over open and fire swept ground. He sent back a report of the greatest value and on previous occasions he had made very valuable and gallant reconnaissance of the same nature." He was wounded in this engagement and spent nine months in the hospital, after this he took part in several actions and June 1917 was awarded the Military Cross for gallantry in collecting and reorganizing stragglers and personally leading them to fresh and successful effort after two other attacks had failed. In a subsequent engagement he won a bar to Military Cross and was made Captain. The message which Mr. Batson has received concerning his son, does not state in what engagement Captain Batson was killed, but it must have been in one of the recent battles that have proved so successful for the Allied armies. He has given his life in a worthy cause and today sleeps in a soldier's grave. With such price is our liberty bought. We ought to see to it that such sacrifice is not in vain and that it is never forgotten nor unworthily used by us who have remained at home. Captain Batson, as a man, was quiet and unassuming, courteous and manly, as a soldier he was brave and fearless, winning the approbation of his officers and the respect and devotion of his men. To his sorrowing parents and relatives we extend our sincerest sympathy. W.B. Bugden.

Evening Telegram   September 13, 1910 (Tuesday)

Sad Death of Rev. Fr. Battcock. Special to the Evening Telegram. Holyrood, To-Day. The Rev. Father Battcock - the dearly beloved parish priest of Holyrood - died suddenly at 8.30 p.m. yesterday. Father Battcock was in the best of health yesterday forenoon, said his morning Mass as usual, and went for a drive with some visiting friends to the South Side in the afternoon. During the drive he was seized with a severe pain in the heart, and returned home in less than an hour. While resting on the couch he had some severe attacks; but afterwards sufficiently rallied to take some tea and chat pleasantly with his guests. He even accompanied his visitors halfway to join the train, walking and talking pleasantly. Returning home the pain again became severe and he went to bed. Not long afterwards he fell into the sleep of death. The Rev. Father Sheehan and Dr. Jones were called, but death had claimed its victim. The suddenness of the death of the dearly beloved Priest has stricken the community with deep sorrow, and everyone mourns the loss of one of the best and kindest of Priests and a generous and noble-hearted gentleman. The Rev. Fr. Battcock has laboured acceptably and successfully in the missions of King's Cove, Bay-de-Verde, Holyrood, St. Brendan's, Gambo, and Holyrood the second time, in all of which places he was the Saggarth Aroon. But he has gone to receive the reward of the faithful steward. His relatives and people have our warmest sympathy.

BOLAND, Bridget
Evening Telegram    August 23, 1918 (Friday)

Obituary. Bridget Boland. At the ripe old age of 86 years, Bridget Boland died at Holyrood, on Lady Day, August 15th. The deceased had been blessed with good health until recently when she received a stroke of paralysis, which reduced her to a semi-demented stage. Rev. W.P. Finn visited the sick woman often and administered the last Sacraments. Her funeral took place on Saturday morning from her late home to the Star of the Sea Hall, where Mass was celebrated and the burial service recited for the repose of her soul. The funeral ceremonies over, the funeral procession reformed and wended its way to Holy Cross Cemetery where her remains were interred in the family plot. The funeral was well attended which attested respect to a woman who was well and favourably known for her hospitality far and near, and "whose house was known to all the vagrant train." The late Mrs. Boland leaves behind her two sons and three [sic] daughters to mourn the loss of an affectionate mother, viz: David in Halifax, N.S., John, Ball's Creek, Cape Breton, Winnie and Anastasia, Cambridge, U.S.A., Mary at John's Pond, St. Mary's Bay, and Rose Ellen at Holyrood, Conception Bay, to all of whom we tender our sincere sympathy on the loss of a good hearted, fond and loving mother. Since the destruction of our handsome church the Star of the Sea Hall is used temporarily for church requirements. The funeral ceremony of Mrs. Boland, the first to be celebrated therein, lent a historical aspect to the occasion and as a mark of respect the flag floated half mast. - R.I.P.

BUGDEN, Gilbert
Evening Telegram March 15, 1963 (Friday)

Obituary. The many friends of Gilbert Bugden learned with regret of his death, Dec. 19 at the age of 82 years.
Gilbert Bugden was born at English Harbor, Trinity Bay, son of the late Martin and Arianna Bugden. The deceased spent all his life at English Harbor and will be remembered as a kindly man with a helping hand. Gilbert Bugden was a community-minded, church-minded man and his years of service to the church and the community have proven that he was always willing to take up the cross and follow his Master. For 56 years he served as lay-reader in the Church at English Harbor; he was recording secretary of the English Harbor United Church (now Summerville charge) for 38 years; secretary of the English Harbor congregation for 27 years; superintendent of the Sunday School English Harbor for 32 years; he was justice of the peace for 36 years in this area. He also played an active part in the fishery program in his area. Mr. Bugden always held the confidence and respect of the people with whom he was associated. In the person of the deceased his many friends found friendship and brotherly love measured by reality, not by pretention. A former president of the Newfoundland Conference, United Church of Canada, payed tribute to the deceased by saying, "He was a loving husband and father, a true friend, a dedicated christian and loyal churchman."
Mr. Bugden's days were made happy through his service in the community and his association with people, and during his last days relatives and friends did all in their power to soothe his suffering, and prepare him for the passage, to that undiscovered country from whose bourne no traveler returns. Cards of sympathy, telegrams, letters and wreaths which poured into home from all over Newfoundland, the Canadian mainland and the U.S. show the esteem in which he was held.
Mr. Bugden is survived by his wife Emily at English Harbor; one daughter, Joyce, Mrs. Jonathan Bursey in the U.S.; four grandchildren; a son, Rev. Wilson Bugden predeceased him in Oct. 1962, and another son Arthur paid the supreme sacrifice during the Second World War; a brother, Rev. W.B. Bugden predeceased him some years ago. Funeral service took place from his residence at English Harbor to the United Church with interment at the family plot. The services were conducted by the minister, W. George Stratton.

A man belonging to Flat Rock (William Burke) met his death in a singular manner last week. He was running after a horse to prevent his getting out of a field, when he stumbled, having in his hand a picket, one end of which took the ground and the other the lower part of his stomach, causing a rupture of his liver from which he died in about forty eight hours. He was a quiet, industrious man, and leaves a wife and six children.

BURSEY, Nathaniel
Daily News February 14, 1927 (Monday)

Obituary. On December 5th, 1926, the Angel of death visited Old Perlican and called to the Great Beyond Nathaniel Bursey, at the ripe age of 69. Uncle Nath (as he was called) has been suffering from heart disease for the last three years, yet he bore the pain and disability with patience. Throughout his life he had learned to confide his cares to his Master. He was carefully attended to by his loving and devoted wife, who, throughout the long period of his illness, did everything that was possible to make him happy. The funeral ceremony was conducted by Rev. G. Ivany, who preached from John 11:26. "Whosoever believeth in me shall never die." The L.O.A. also paraded and paid the customary rites to their beloved brother. He leaves to mourn a beloved wife, four daughters, three of whom are living in Boston. His only son, Frank, who is also living in Boston, was married one week before his father's death. To the sorrowing friends we extend our sympathy. COM. Old Perlican, February 2, 1927
