Bonne Bay Anglican Marriages, Burials, Confirmations, and Churchings

Bonne Bay Anglican Marriages, Burials, Confirmations, and Churchings

What follows is a list of all Pike references among the marriage, burial, confirmation, and churching entries in the Bonne Bay Anglican records held at PANL as of August 2005. This list constitutes a typescript of my handwritten extraction from photocopies of the original records, which is to say that I may have inadvertantly introduced some errors while transcribing and typing... as always, you should double-check against the original records. That said, if you spot any mistakes that I have made, please let me know at Additional Pike entries from other Newfoundland church records can also be found on my website.

Some comments about this information:

At PANL these records are in volumes with date ranges as indicated.

Marriages (1874 - 1871 - 1879)

Yes, I know that "1874 - 1871 - 1879" is ambiguous, but that is what was written on the volume held by PANL.

    there being at the time no clergyman to be found on the shore

Burials (1871 - 1881)

I found no Pike entries among these burial records.

Confirmations (1871 - 1902)

The entries in the "Remarks" column in the records held at PANL appear to have been entered by the clergy at some time subsequent to each person's date of confirmation. The "E.I.R." that appears in the 1882 entry for Margaret Pike is, I believe, an abbreviation for "Entered into Rest". The "Estate" column appears to record each person's marital status.

7. Aug. 1898 Eliza Ellen Witt 18 S W.P. Comd md to William T Pike

Churchings (1871 - 1904)

These appear to be records of donations. The vast majority of them listed a woman's forename in one column, and then a man's full name in an adjacent column. The "WP" in the 1881 entry below refers, I believe, to Woody Point.
