Other Life Events

AnecdoteWhen the Adey's moved to Hant's Harbour in the late 1700's, this outport had already been existence for over one hundred years. Although it does not appear in the first census taken of communities in Newfoundland in 1677, it is listed in 1697 as well as in later population counts in the early 1700's. We've already referred to the 1677 and 1697 counts.
In 1708, Hant's Harbour boasted a population of three boatkeepers, two wives and seventeen servants. The boatkeepers were George Christopher, Robert Carloy and Philip Brooks. There were no children. Since these surnames are not present today in Hant's Harbour, nor were they evident in the early church records, it is likely that these people did not remain permanent settlers of this community.
During this time in the history of Newfoundland, early settlers of outport communities frequently returned to England in the fall and came back to Newfoundland after the winter season. Although some nearby communities were, by virtue of their larger population, becoming more established, and hence more conducive to family life, Hant's Harbour was being used primarily as a fishing post. When Rev. Balfour of Trinity visited surrounding communities in the mid 1700's, the number of families in each of the communities of Scilly Cove, Old Perlican, New Perlican and Heart's Content were carefully noted in his records. Hant's Harbour is not mentioned. It was not until the late 1700's, when fishermen began to settle permanently at Hant's Harbour, that family life became an inherent part of this community.
We can learn nothing more about the Adey's until church records began in the 1820's. There were four Adey families in Hant's Harbour at that time and they were all members of the church. They were James & Jane, William & Mary, Isaac & Elizabeth and Martin & Catherine.
Martin likely made his living as a fisherman, he was also the constable in Hant's Harbour. His name appears on a few occasions in letters written by him to the Magistrate's Court in Harbour Grace and Trinity. When his wife died on July 1, 1844, at age 49, Martin purchased a beautiful headstone to her memory. This headstone, though someone faded, remains as one of the few markers in the old cemetery in Hant's Harbour.
An article written by Edgar C. Janes, entitled "Hant's Harbour - An Historical Outline", refers to this headstone. Mr. Janes visited this cemetery and noticed the headstone lying on the ground. Although the printing had faded considerably over the years, he tried his best to discern the letters, but incorrectly concluded that the headstone said that Catherine died on July 1, 1811 at age 19. A little battery acid and some assistance from my cousin, Blair Janes, convinced me that the 1's were in fact 4's.

AnecdoteSometime in the late 1700's, at least one, and perhaps several of Martin and Bridget's remaining sons moved to Hant's Harbour. From a census of Trinity Bay completed around 1800, it is known that Thomas Street was paying 25 pounds per year to Isaac Adey as rent for a house and fishing room in Old Perlican. James Reed was renting similar quarters from Martin Adey in Hant's Harbour.
