1769 Philip Messervy, born Jersey married Suzanne Dennis, and removed to Newfoundland. I recently obtained a photocopy of a handwritten genealogy of a portion of the Messervey family of Jersey and Newfoundland. Reference was made to a ‘Genealogy de la famille Messervy compiled 1889’,while other references were made to a Messervy Genealogy by Judge Messervy (1900?) of Waterloo, Ont., and a Messervy Book by John A Messervy, of Charlottetown, PEI.  Phillipe Messervy, de St. Sauveur, who immigrated to St. George’s Bay, Newfoundland in 1769 with his wife Suzanne Dennis, daughter of John Dennis. William James Messervey, born Febryary 12, 1894 at Sandy Point, Nfld., died in a mine disaster at Sidney Mines, NS on January 3, 1911.
