Surnames: Brushett, Legg, Butt
I am looking for info anyone may have regarding these ancestors of mine. Richard Brushett(b. 1827, Burin) married Ann Legg(b. 1832, Western Bay). Their son Parmenas Brushett(b. 1865, Nfld) married Mary Elizabeth Butt(b. 1865, Nfld). I have names and birth years for these individuals but cannot find any further info on them. I would like to get any info on the Butt line, as well as Richard's and Ann's parents. Thanks.

I have one Brushett connection. My grandmother Mary Ann Riggs had a sister Harriet "Hattie" Riggs, who married William Brushett, Sept. 6, 1904, Burin. They still have relatives there.
I did not find out yet who William's parents were.

I'm looking for an Elizabeth of Julia Brushett married to an Alexander Taylor. I think they lived in Burin Bay Arm. I am also looking for an Owen Taylor from the same area. If I have the right paople it would be around 1874.
Thanks

Hey, I'm researching Taylors, too. The ones connected to my mother were from Epworth on the Burin Peninsula. Any relation?

There is a committee in Burin now doing research on the Mina Swim and making preparations for a memorial.
I always included a Taylor as a possibility
They now have a website up
Mina Swim Memorial
any input would be welcome from the group as everyone is being contacted

I have an Elizabeth Butt of Western Bay born Sept. 25, 1865. Do you think this is the same Elizabeth?

Surnames: Re: Brushett, Watson, Butt, Boot families
Hello - My grandmother was Eda Alena Brushett m. John Cameron Watson in Halifax in 1928. She was from Burin (Stepaside I've been told) and her parents were Parnemas Brushett and Mary Boot according to the marriage license. However, could this possibly have been a spelling error and her mother could have been Mary BUTT? I know that Eda was born in 1903.
