I am trying to find, Parents for and Date of Birth for, Sarah Wood of Bay Roberts . Sarah married William Brown in 1849 at Bay Roberts. She died at Bay Roberts in 1862.
There was a James Woods in the Beachy Cove area of Bay Roberts on the 1835 voters list and a James Wood witnessed Sarah Wood and William Brown's wedding in 1849, AND I found a death for James Wood in 1861 at age 63yrs. All in Bay Roberts. That is the only Wood I can find, so I'm thinking that THIS James Wood is Sarah Wood's father because upon his death in 1861 he was 63 yrs old making him born abt. 1798.

In the 1864 Hutchinsons Directory for Bay Roberts there are 4 (four) Woods listed, Charles,James,Phillip,and William and all are listed as Schooner Owner. As James Wood died in 1861, these may be his son's or brothers or some of each, Who knows? Anyway that is the last time that Wood shows up in the Directory's at Bay Roberts, I have no idea where they went or came from , but as they were schooner owners they could have gone anywhere following the fishing trade.

1. James Wood was a witness at the Marriage of Sarah Wood and William Brown in Bay Roberts on Dec. 18th, 1849.

2. James Wood of Bay Roberts died on May 23, 1861 at the age of 63 yrs.

3. James WOOD born to John & Catharine and bap Apr 7 1800 . listed in the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist (Anglican) in St. John's,NL. Baptisms 1796 -1812 Vol 26B.

4. Nov. 24, 1786 - married John Woods of Old Perlican and Catharine Ivamy dau. of John and Patience Ivamy in this district .St Paul's Marriages(Anglican) 1779 - 1808 Trinity, Trinity Bay District.

Anyone coming across these names during your research ,I would appreciate hearing from you.

Thanks
Len

I visited the Provincial Archives at The Rooms in St. John's NL. I viewed Photocopies of ORIGINAL CHURCH RECORDS for St Matthews Church Anglican , Bay Roberts.
I have found that my suspicion was right. All the HOOD listings should be WOOD/ WOODS. The following are corrections which I have verified today.

On Page 6 there is a listing for Thomas of William and Mary HOOD, It should be and is WOODS. this can be verified in the C/E Bay Roberts 1848 - 1870 Baptisms page 56 #624. There is a note after this which reads Mr. William Woods requested WOOD be changed to WOODS as WOODS is the proper name. signed by Rev. Shears.

I will list the following Pages from NGB site first and the correct name with Church Record Page and Number Last.

NGB Page 17, Sarah Jane of William and Mary Woods Church Record Page 72 # 796.

NGB P. 12, Isaac of Philip and Jemima Woods, Church Record P. 66 # 727.

NGB P. 29, Mary Ann of William and Mary Woods Church Record P. 90 # 995.

NGB P. 39, William James of William and Mary Woods , Church Record P. 107 # 1142.

NGB P.46, Sarah Fanny of Simon and Elizabeth Woods. Church Record BOX 1 1837 - 1870.

NGB P. 61, Susanna of Simon and Elizabeth Woods, Church Record Box 1, 1838 - 1870.

The following are WOODS taken from Church Records which is not yet listed in NGB Site.

Charles son of James and Elizabeth Wood born 09 Feb 1843 from C of E Baptisms Bay Roberts 1837 - 1848 Box 1.
Elizabeth of William and Mary Woods born 21 Aug 1855, BOX 1 Also.

The 1864 Hutchinson's Directory for Bay Roberts doesn't show any HOODS however it shows (4) Four WOODS, Charles , James, Philip and William as Schooner Owners.

This leads me to believe that HOOD is wrong and it should be Wood. Here is the entry from the Directory.

1864 - 1865
Hutchinson's Directory
Bay Roberts

WOODS Charles, schooner owner
WOODS James, schooner owner
WOODS Philip, schooner owner
WOODS William, schooner owner

As a result of a visit to Provincial Archives today, March 17, 2016, I found the following in the Voters Lists for Bay Roberts;

1874, 1878, 1882 years show the following;
William Woods
Philip Woods
Simon Woods
Charles Woods

1878 and 1882 show the above plus Robert of William Woods.

1855 and 1858 only show James Woods.

Then the following shows that Woods change to Hood;
There is another Voters List without a date, but wrote in ink 1889 or 1885 ? that show the following;

William Hood age 58 of James lives at Beachy Cove
Philip Hood age 55 of James Lives at Beachy Cove Fisherman
Simon Hood age 55 of James lives at Spaniards Bay Pond Fisherman
Thomas Hood age 25 of William lives at Beachy Cove Captain of Banker
Robert Hood age 31 of William lives at Beachy Cove Fisherman
Charles Hood age 28 of Philip lives at Beachy Cove Fisherman

Is there anyone who can clarify or explain this change?

If Thomas Hood was a Captain of a Banker then there should be a record somewhere.

Hi Len, I think so much depended on who was actually recording the information, and how they "heard" the surname (given the were often people that were not from the area, and had trouble with the dialect) combined with their own degree of literacy. I have found so many name anomalies in my research -- in fact, on my dad's side his surname started as Bryant, migrated back and forth to Bright due to errors by missionaries understanding the name and remains Bright today, over 150 years later!

It looks like your patriarch must be James but I am wondering - have you reviewed the vital records at the Anglican archdiocese in St John's. If the records are there as well, they often (although not always) recorded the father's name on the marriage record. They are open Wed mornings only.

Regards,
Carol
