      Ferryland Church of England Burials: January 22,1843 Pitt, Robert- Ferryland 68. Priest: William Bowman

      About a week after the death of Robert Pitt, an entry in the Ferryland Diary of Robert Carter states: "Jan 28 1843 - James Johnson of Caplin Bay has this winter opened up the forge of Mr. Holdsworth for carrying on business on his own account"

      James Johnston is listed in the voters lists at Caplin Bay (Beach) in 1840 and 1842, and at Ferryland (North Side) from 1844 to 1859. James was granted land on the north west side of the main road at Ferryland in 1847. (Registry Crown Lands - index #658). In the Church of England baptism records, James occupation is given as blacksmith.

      Church of England Ferryland District Burials October 20, 1880 - Johnson, James Ferryland 63 Henry Winsor

      No headstone has been found for James. I think it is likely that he was buried in the Anglican cemetery at (Forge Hill) Ferryland, which was close to his forge. It is not known if a headstone ever existed. This cemetery has a number of old headstones, one dates back to 1818. If one did exist, it is possible that it is now buried in the hillside, overgrown with grass and brush (Kevin Reddigan).
