Barr d Islands: From English Roots is a history of early English settlement in Notre Dame Bay, Newfoundland, with a focus on Barr d Islands, a small fishing community on Fogo Island. Explore the day-to-day lives of a charitable, community-minded people whose hardships were many in a time when survival from year to year was uncertain: living under the iron fist of merchant firms, subsistence farming, and poverty. Also, learn of these early settler faith, richness of virtue, hard-working ethic, and games and amusements shared by all in the community. Finally, this book is a genealogical treasure trove that traces many well-know Newfoundland family trees back to their English roots in the 1600s.
