Hello All,

Does anyone have any information on the history of Broad Cove in Bonavista BAy during the late 1700s to the early 1800s? I know it had a fire go through it in 1828 burning down almost all the houses of the tiny village of less then 200 people. But if anyone has family from Broad Cove, what are their stories of what their ancestor's life was like, and who were the families who lived there? I read that it was 100 percent Irish. Were they all from the same county in Ireland? My grandmother Mary Ellen harty was born in Broad Cove in 1881 as was her mother Catherine Ryan, born 1845. Her father was William harty, of Broad Cove. Her mother Ellen Dixon was born in King Cove in 1820. My grandmother said her family was from County Cork.

I know the Hartys have a long history in Broad Cove, perhaps one of the original early settlers. But how many hartys were there in the early 1800s

I know there was a michael Harty who married mary Keough in 1820 in Broad cove, claiming he was from Lismore Ireland and she Tintern, Wexford Ireland but when did they arrive and did he come with a brother or a male cousin who would have had a child in the 1830s or 1840s?

Any information about broad Cove in the late 1700s and early 1800s and the Irish families living there will be appreciated.
