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.

The Bay de Verde Heritage Days were a great success again this year-both financially and otherwise.The Heritage Committen 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.

Working on the premises of the Heritage House has been a joy, working with Tiffany, Victoria, Kayla, Wendy and Carl has been an unforgettable experience. I treasure every moment, every laugh, every visitor who comes through the front door. I've learned a lot about the house as I was volunteering and working here, especially info about Baccalieu Island. Thanks to Carl for letting me on staff at the House as a volunteer. I hope I can do this all again someday.

In this place, a person learns a great deal about the people who live here and of those who came before. A great deal of respect for them and the hardships of their lives is shown in great detail. I've been here three times and each time I've enjoyed my visit to the Heritage House. It gives a glimpse into the past that shows a hard working people whose lives were hard but who survived in spite of the difficult life. I have a great respect for the people of Bay de Verde.

For the past nine weeks I have been working here at the Heritage House as a student interpreter, through the SWASP program. The last nine weeks have been amazing. Words cannot describe how truly excellent it is to work here in the Heritage House. I will never forget the time I spent working here as I met different people from all over the world.

I recall stories my mother told me about her relatives in Bay de Verde - Ellen Noonan and John Woodrow. In speaking with Brendan Doyle, I learned more information. This house is a fine building which keeps the history and culture in memory. It's a wonderful house and has been preserved well. It is a credit to the people who have donated much.

Working here the past 6 weeks with the girls - Tiffany, Kayla & Victoria - and Carl, has been amazing. I certainly could not think of a better summer job. When first coming here, I knew next to nothing about the history of the house. I soon learned many things about the house, as well as the community and its people, with the help of Tiffany, of course. I have met so many wonderful people that I will never forget. Even had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Eleanor Mills (former resident of the house). We had so many laughs here. Truly unforgettable. So thanks girls and Carl of course for an amazing summer. I'll never forget it!

Congratulations to everyone involved in making this happen. Our history is too often forgotten and lost and its good to see that there are still people who work and strive to tell our stories and save our memories. Thank you.
