Sherren's of the World - Page 51 to 75


The eldest daughter of Samuel and Ann Sherren was Mary, she was born in Crapaud in 1825. She stayed at home and helped her parents on the farm until her marriage to James Fall in 1844.

James' family originated in Alderborough, England. They immigrated to Canada in 1810 and settled in Cove Head. After his father passed away, James and his mother moved to Crapaud and lived on what was known as the Sherren Road.

James' mother was Elizabeth Rouston who was regarded as a "women of culture" and was instrumental in the founding of the Crapaud Elementary School. She began by teaching small groups of ladies and further expanded it to include other subjects of an academic nature.

After the death of Mary's younger brother George Sherren, she and James then moved to the Sherren homestead which had been established by her father, Samuel. All the Falls in the Crapaud area have descended directly from this couple. Mary died in 1893 at the age of 69 years. James died two years later, in 1895, when he was 75 years old. Both are buried in the St. John's Anglican Church cemetery, Crapaud.

James and Mary Fall had three children:

Their daughter MARY ANN, married Mark Trowsdale in 1893. They remained in the Crapaud area and had four children:

Harry, Edward (Eddie), Henry and Frank.

GEORGE was the oldest son of James and Mary. He who was born in 1849. George became very noted for his writings under the pen name of "Gene Autumn". He wrote about early life on Prince Edward Island and in particular about settlers in the Crapaud area.

Although he was not educated in the academic sense, he showed an uncanny depth of knowledge and had an ability to portray the true feelings of the people and present graphically many of the events that were happening during the time. Even by today’s standards his writings display a great wisdom and philosophy. A great deal of his writing was printed in the Charlottetown Newspaper during 1929 and some were also recapped in the book "History of Crapaud" which was written by the Crapaud Women’s Institute in 1957.

Samuel died in 1929 and his wife Ellen in 1945. They are both buried in St. John's Church cemetery in Crapaud.

James was born in 1856 and spent most of his life doing day work on farms in the Crapaud area.

James lived on the Green Road just across the brook from the Sherren Road. It was because of him that the bridge was known as Jim's Bridge.

After the death of James Fall his widow, Jessie,(page 56) moved to Jim Sherren's home and looked after him until their deaths. Jim never married and left no descendents.

The next, a daughter, was Ann Mil (Annie), was born in 1857. She was later married to Nathan Percival and lived on the Sherren road. After the death of Nathan, Ann was then married to Robert MacDonald. She died in 1935.

He married Margaret Williams from Bedeque and raised a family of seven.

William died of cerebral hemorrhage while staying in the Charlottetown Provincial House. He died on January 2, 1915 and is buried with his wife Margaret in the Peoples Cemetery on St. Peter's Road which is just outside Charlottetown.

The twin sister of William was Sarah Jane who married William MacDonald. They settled on the farm which was owned by his father Joseph. William died in 1913 at the age of 67 and Sarah in 1922.

Sara and William had a family of 6: Albert, George, Frederick Lina, Annie and Cecilia. '

The three youngest sons all died young. Their first daughter Lina, married Wilfred Ferguson, and remained in the area of Hampton where they farmed. After Lina died, Wilfred married Mimmie (Sherren) Atherton who had returned from the US after her husband passed away.

Annie, married Myron Seaton and were the owners of the "Red Rooster", the biggest-little restaurant in Crapaud. It was small in size but big on hospitality and quality.

The Red Rooster has remained associated with the family, at one time being owned by Reginald Sherren, and now is owned by Edgar and Marian Miller.

Sarah and Williams youngest daughter, Cecilia, was married to George Carter and moved to the United States. She later returned to P.E.I. and settled in Hampton.

George, the seventh child in the family of James Trowsdale Sherren and Sarah Cairns, was born in Crapaud.

The eighth in the family of James and Sarah was a daughter named Celia who moved to the US where she remained until her passing in 1938.

The ninth in the family (sixth son}, Albert, was born on March 27, 1864. He moved to Augustine Cove, where he took up farming until poor health forced him to retire. He was known as a hard worker who in addition to farming, also worked on the ice boats during the winter that crossed from Cape Traverse to New Brunswick. He later moved to Cape Traverse where he died in 1936 at the age of 78.

He was married twice; the first time to Hannah Jane Wilson, from Hampton, a neighbouring village near Crapaud. she died in 1917 at the age of 57 years.

Next in line was Alfred, he was born on June 15th, 1865 and died on April 18, 1942 at his home in Victoria. (77 years)

Alfred did mostly day work on farms in the area and worked in Victoria loading boats. He married Mary Jane Cudmore from the Appin Road who worked at cleaning local homes. They did not have any children.

- Page 64 -


 Although Alfred was basically uneducated it was a surprise to learn at his death that he had left $14,000.00, cash, in his will. This is still a mystery as to how he was able to save this much money, when you consider that in those days this much money would have been sufficient to purchase a good size farm with house, barns and equipment.

The youngest in this family was David. He was born in 1868 and died in 1939 at the age of 71.

David inherited his father's property and also purchased the adjoining farm owned at the time by Welsey Callbeck.

He was married to Laura Carrier of Earnscliffe. She was the sister of Florence Carrier, who was the wife of his first cousin, William Douglas. She was born in 1871 and died in 1942.

David and Laura were noted for their generous hospitality. Friends, neighbours and even strangers were always welcome at their home.

Unfortunately, I have not been able to get many facts about this family, as family members were reluctant to assist. However, there is some more information which is documented in later chapters.

The only child of Thomas and Sarah Jane was a son, James Charles. He was born on September 14, 1881. He grew up in Dorchester and was educated at Mount Allison Academy in St. Joseph. He was known to be a hard worker with a strong desire to succeed.

After finishing school, James became a lawyer and specialized in criminal law and opened his own practice in Moncton. Although he enjoyed getting away fishing and playing golf, he was not always able to, due to the pressures of his practice.

In 1906 James was married to Alice Woodman, whose family was from Moncton, New Brunswick. She remained at home and raised her family, at the same time practicing her hobbies of making ceramics and knitting. James and Alice's three children were:

Marion Alice, born on February 9, 1909 and died in 1981 at the age of 72. She worked as a supervisor on the railway and also held her private pilot license. This was very unique for a female in these times.

Hazel Viola, born on December 14, 1910, was also a very active girl getting very involved in community activities. She worked for the Federal Government in the Unemployment Insurance Commission Department as a supervisor.

The youngest son of James and Alice was another James Charles who was born on September 12, 1912. He was educated at Mount Allison & the University of New Brunswick, Fredricton. In 1940 he enlisted with the Canadian Army serving in World War II as Lieutenant in the Engineering Corp. James returned to Moncton where he worked as a land surveyor. He owned his own business and held licenses in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland.

In 1940 James married Mary McLellen from Moncton who stayed at home to raise their family of three. This second James (a grandson of Thomas) and his wife Mary, also had three children, two girls and a boy. Mary died in 1987.

Mary Alice, born August 1, 1941, worked as a school teacher. She was married to Stephen Illes from Montreal, Quebec and raised three daughters; Tina, Maria and Julie

Jane Carolyn, born August 10, 1945, was married to a Mr. Gogin. They also had three children; Marg, Lynn and Mark

James Charles, born August 11, 1952, in Grand Falls Newfoundland. He is employed with the Boca Flooring Company in Moncton as their Manager. He was married in 1980 to Claudine Arsenault.
