I am researching the family history of the Stricklands in the Burgeo area on the south coast of Newfoundland. As a starting point in my research I am using a section of Joseph Small's diary written in 1925:
"James Ingraham lived here. He, too, was a fine old man. I do not know who his wife was. They have both been long dead. They had one daughter who married Thomas Strickland of Muddy Hole. They are both long dead and left a large family of boys: Philip, John, Thomas, James, William, and Robert. There was also one daughter who married J. R. Porter.
Thomas Strickland came from Hermitage Bay as a servant and married as stated above. He was a brother of Robert of Hunt's."
Most of the people that settled the Hunt's Island area came from Heritage Bay in the 1850s. Some of the sons of Thomas may have moved west to the Port Aux Basques area. I would like to know any information about Thomas Strickland or anyone else mention in this section of Small's diary, please contact me.
