Clement

Harbour Grace Burial record:

Clements John 7 Feb 1802 80 yr Merchant of this Harbour

 

The Clement name is of interest to the Noels of Harbour Grace because of a note below apparently found in the 1804 Plantation records:

Clement 2

In 1805 the Clements Estate had a vacant property with the backroom of a house in Southside Harbour Grace. Had the Noels and the Yetman’s moved on after the death of John Clements?

in 1785 he sold a property on the northside Harbour Grace to William Martin Jr. Meadow, 2 stages, 2 houses, 2 flakes, 2 gardens for 147 pounds.

The Bulmer family of Hereford originated in the north of England. Edward Bulmer I wine merchant, who migrated to Bristol in the eighteenth century, was the younger son of a Yorkshire farmer. Edward moved to Hereford early in the nineteenth century, and his younger sons Charles and Richard joined him in business. He became mayor in 1822; and his son Richard was also elected and died in 1834 during his year of office. The eldest son Edward Bulmer II (Rev. Edward Bulmer Snr) entered the Church, becoming rector of Moreton-on-Lugg, and a member of the College of Vicars Choral. He married a daughter of the eminent composer Dr. John Clarke Whitfeld, who was organist at Hereford Cathedral. Two of their sons entered the family wine business at Widemarsh Street, Hereford – the other sons entered the Church.

Back in Conception Bay:
South shore Broad Cove near Portugal Cove  1804
Executors of John Clements 116 yds. from N. to South bounded on the N. by Wm. Tucker on the S. by the woods 200 yds. from H.W.M. to the Southward bounded on the south by the woods 1 S. 2 F. 1 H. 1 G.
This property was bought from John Squires in 1790 and was occupied by Squires still in 1804. It was used for a fish processing plant. The property in Bryant’s Cove was owned jointly with Thomas Noseworthy and was sold to Tim Hearne. It also was used for a fish processing plant.
In 1820 the Clements property in Port de Grave was sold to George Smith. Michael Power, Clements partner of 16 years had lived there. In 1782 John Clements partner in Port de Grave was Richard Gosse.
In 1792 Clements had a mortgage on a property in Bread and Cheese Cove to cover a debt. Robert Gosse continued payments until 1822 to George Lilly for the estate.
Robert Parsons of island Cove was John Clements  partner in Upper Island Cove and ran a fish processing plant there (1788).
The fish plant in Juggler’s Cove was sold to William Earle in 1760.
John Clements in HG was the agent for Mr. Fox. Mooney/Casey sued him in 1788. Mr Attwell Clements involved?
“on the Southside of Harbour Grace the executors of John Clement claim 330 yards waterfront west from the stone house. The Noels and the Yetman’s still living there are also originally Jersey families and related to the Clements”
 * The Yetman’s were from southern England.
 .
The DeQuettevilles were a big trading family. I believe the matriarch was a Noel. I think she was from St Helier not St Martin like Clement. The stone house is the ruin of the DeQuetteville building (maybe 1740’s) in Southside Harbour Grace.
 .
The Jersey traders seemed to marry into business partners’ families so it is possible another Jersey Noel branch came over (a predecessor of John Noel in Brigus et al????)
 .
I had thought the Noels were originally in Carbonear but their property purchase document puts them in Harbour Grace first.

Concerning a later descendant:
.
John Clement came from a St Brelade family of master mariners who had been merchants at Harbour Grace, Newfoundland, in the late 18th-century.[51] Unable to weather the disruption to trade caused by the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812-1814, the next generation worked, as did Renouf, for the Nicolles, in their case, as shipmasters. The Clement family returned to shipowning in 1858, when John Clement began to take shares in some of Thomas Renouf`s vessels.

She seems to have used Munn’s information or had access to the source as well….

 .
Seary in his book lists William Clements of Brigus in 1709. John Clement of Jugler’s Cove in Bay Roberts in 1760 and John Clement, merchant of Harbour Grace 1771. It seems like the name died out in Newfoundland around 1800 when John died having 4 surviving daughters.
