On behalf of the Bay de Verde heritage Committee, I would like to thank all those who in any way helped the Committee over the past year. The heritage Premises has grown over the years to include many new sites. Each site displays the Heritage of our town. I hope we have a good and productive 2017.

Once again this year, on behalf of the Heritage Committee, I would like to thank Lisa and Darlene for organizing Halloween at the Heritage Premises. Its become a welcomed tradition. Fifty-one children visited and I am sure they will have great memories of a wonderful experience. Again thanks!

The Bay de Verde Heritage Days were a great success again this year-both financially and otherwise.The Heritage Committee wishes to thank all those volunteers who made this possible. The fireworks were over the top, the cold-plates were delicious, the live music was excellent, the weather gods were with us, the children thoroughly enjoyed the bouncy castle and the people came in droves. What more can we ask? Until next year!

In 1748 Uriah Mitchell Bursey came to Old Perlican. Joseph and Richard Bursey arrived in 1750. The William Warn Ledger 1749-1759, shows the family tree has a direct link to England. The oldest recorded English deed in Newfoundland is a land indenture that dates to March 11, 1712, when John Carter sold his plantation in Old Perlican to John Barret. John Carter was the son of William Carter, Mayor of Poole, England. John is thought to have arrived at least 7 years earlier as an indentured servant.

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Brendan Doyle for organizating this website on behalf of the Town and the Heritage committee. The company that he had do it, did an amazing job. It is easy to navigate through and certainly pictures our town and the heritage premises in a very positive light. The pictures and the information links are enough to keep you on this site for hours. As always, Bay de verde looks great. Excellent job!!

I can hardly wait to visit BDV. I just learned last year that my ancestors came from there. James Cosh and Annie Emberley Cosh were born in Bay Dr Verde. His mother and father were Mary Ann Norris and John Cosh who were married in 1865. I spoke to Brendan last year and am excited about visiting your beautiful little town.
