I’m looking for information on a family that lived in Newfoundland in the mid to late 1800’s.The family consisted of parents Thomas POOK and Phoebe MOORE (MOORES) and at least three children, William, Oliver and Edgar.I know the following about each member of the family.

 

Thomas POOK: died before 1875 likely in Newfoundland

 

Phoebe MOORE or MOORES: born 27 July 1824 in Newfoundland, religion Methodist, moved to Toronto about 1875, died in Toronto 22 April 1912

 

William POOK: born in Newfoundland, trade carpenter, moved to Toronto about 1875, married Charlotte PRITCHARD and had at least five children.

 

Oliver POOK: born in Newfoundland, 29 November 1856, trade carpenter, religion Methodist, married Charlotte PHILLIPS October 1882, she was born in Newfoundland, September 1858, moved to Toronto about 1875 and they had at least seven children.

 

Edgar POOK: born in Newfoundland, probably in the Twillingate area, 16 July 1864 or 1865,trade carpenter, religion Christadelphian, moved to Toronto about 1893, married Mary Simpson WEIR, she was born in Toronto, 28 August 1893, they had at least ten children.He died 13 April 1920.

 

They may have lived in the Twillingate area although no evidence of this has been found other than a reference in a family document for Edgar’s birth place.POOK is a very uncommon name in Newfoundland.The current phone listings show no POOKs in the province and the only historical reference found so far is in the St. John’s 1864 Directory for a Samuel POOK.The MOORE surname is much more common although I have found no reference to a Phoebe MOORE at this point.
