1918 Grand Falls Directory (part 1)

The following is a listing of all households in the town of Grand Falls, Newfoundland, as of 1918. The listings are arranged alphabetically by the first letter of the last name, with the name given being that of the main wage earner. This arrangement is consistent with the original ordering of the document. The listing does not include other immediate or extended family members, boarders, servants, or those residing in hotels or the A.N.D. company staff house.

This directory was originally compiled by Miss Jessie M. Gardner, an accountant with the Anglo Newfoundland Development Company in Grand Falls. The original is currently in the possession of Mr. W. T. Howell

The version contained herein was hand copied from the original due to stipulations imposed by the owner of the document. On March 4th of 1979, Mr. Howell made some additions to the original typewritten document, adding (in pen ink) occupations, as well as other miscellanea, to some of the listings. The first and middle names of some of the occupants were also added to or expanded upon by Mr. Howell. These additions have been italicized to allow the reader to discern the original document’s content. As well, some additions were made by Miss Gardner around the time of the documents creation; these have been placed in square brackets beneath her original entries.

The document was typewritten on legal size paper and was stamp dated (A.N.D. Co. stamp) January 12, 1918.

Following the directory listings is a rough outline of when some streets in Grand Falls were constructed. This brief list comes from notes that Mr. Howell had jotted down on the back of a 1977 document listing the number of residential and commercial dwellings. These notes were made some time between 1977 and 1980.

Note: The abbreviation do (ditto) was used by Miss Garner to note entries that occurred from the same street in sequence. I have elected to follow her lead in the hope that some degree of the original document’s nature might be conveyed to the reader.   Included in the notes was a brief section stating that Mr. John Knight and /or Mr. Thomas Brown built the houses on Monchy Road during the summer of 1920.
