Other Life Events

AnecdoteMeredith Blandford Massey has an oil painting of John Bemister which she presumes to be the grandfather of Amelia Bemister. Could this be the Beaminster Family detailed in the Greenspond Baptism records?
Two of Mary and John Bemister's sons emigrated to Newfoundland in the early 1800s. Between them, William and Edward fathered 18 children who were to continue the Bemister family’s links with Canada for the next two centuries. Poole’s links with Newfoundland date back to when fishermen from the Dorset town sailed west to catch the cod. In 1802 the Poole fleet numbered 350 ships whose mariners braved mountainous seas and bloody clashes with privateers.But the end of the Napoleonic wars in 1815 signalled the end to the lucrative cod trade. William Bemister came to Carbonear in 1803, where he earned a reputation as a respected businessman and community leader. His brother Edward left England in 1812 and it is likely that he was on the high seas in June, unaware a war was raging.His vessel was captured by the Americans and he was imprisoned on a ship in Boston for a year and a day. On his release Edward was given a suit and enough money to find his way to Newfoundland.
