bullet  General Notes:

BIOGRAPHY: Conception Bay North Region,British Columbia, Canada "Guardian" / "Bay Roberts Guardian" Newspaper Announcements 1930 - Friday, August 1, 1930 Bareneed - Recent mail brought a letter to Mr. John >> D. Bartlett, H.M.C. from Mr. B. CURLEW, former resident of Bareneed,C.B.,now residing in Wellinston, N.Z. Mr. Curlew, who is over 75 years ofage, retired from sea life a few years ago. He had two sons, one an electrical engineer and the other a farmer. Mr. Curlew has made thirteen voyages around the world. He left Bareneed in May, 1890, joined the S.S.Terra Nova and sailed on her to England, when she was chartered for a South Polar expedition. He left the Terra Nova in England and joined a White Star liner plying to New Zealand about 35 years ago. After many foreign voyages, he settled down there and engaged in local coasting. Mr.Bartlett corresponds with him frequently. - The Family Fireside.
GENERAL: I am trying to trace down all the branches from this small family tree and often the information is illusive. Frequently l get inquiries from descendents who have very sketchy information on their origins. Certainly l am finding family branches that l never knew existed. Also many of the Curlew family retained that spelling, however,the spelling was created by the clergy in Newfoundland. Most often the residents in the 17 & 1800's were illiterate. The actual name is Curnew and the family came to Newfoundland from the Isle of Jersey. Glenda Knapp
