Hope someone can help us solve a mystery. My husband's ancestor, Samuel Churchill, evidently had (1) a brother, Nicholas, born 1725 in Devon, England and moved, we think, to Ochre Pit Cove as did Samuel,(2) a son, Nicholas, born around 1750 in Ochre Pit Cove, and (3) a grandson, Nicholas. We know what happened with Samuel but the 3 Nicholas Churchills are a mystery to some of us. We know Nicholas (the son of Samuel) moved to St. John's for awhile in the early 1800s after his father died. He rented the land in Ochre Pit Cove to his sister, Elizabeth's, husband Richard Halfyard. We don't know who he married but recently read that he had two children. His daughter, Elizabeth Churchill never married and died in Devon, England in 1867. We read that this Elizabeth had a brother, Nicholas, who she outlived. As she willed her small estate to her cousin, John Luscombe in England, we don't if her brother married, had children and/or also moved to England, too. Whether any of the three Nicholas Churchills moved to England we don't know. Possible descendants are trying to find out this and I am quite curious as to where all three went. Could anyone help us?
