  • "The Penney's of Tack's Beach, Newfoundland, Canada"


    "I started this tree some time ago, researching the Penn(e)y's of Tack's Beach, Placentia Bay, Newfoundland, Canada. Tack's Beach was a community that was resettled (abandoned) in the mid 1960's. My family resettled from there to Fortune, Fortune Bay, Newfoundland in 1965.

    The English community of Tack's Beach began in the mid 1800's and my research of the Newfoundland Archives and church records reveal that three Penney brothers settled in Tack's Beach sometime in the 1880's or 1890's. Their father, a James Penney, came from Greens Harbour, Trinity Bay, Newfoundland. That is as far as my research had taken me. The tree also includes a lot of research about the Simms family of Gaultois and Muddy Hole, Newfoundland.

    I had my tree information posted on the internet for some years looking for information on my Grand-father James Penney. Then in October, 2004 I received an email from Betty(Cumby)Weir (third cousin) making the connection with James Penney. His Grand-father (William Penney) came from Dorset, England to Carbonear, Newfoundland in the early 1800's.

    The tree also contains information about my mother's tree, the Senior's from Port Elizabeth, Placentia Bay, Newfoundland.

    The tree also contains information on the Kavanagh's and Coles of St. John's, Newfoundland; plus many more family names in the various branches of the tree - see surname list."
