Food for Thought by Ken Barlow - June 30, 1984

Food for Thought - Our Weekly Dining-out Review - Weatherfield Recorder

The Rovers Return, Coronation Street, Weatherfield

First impressions on entering the Rovers are favorable. The atmosphere is traditional and friendly. Mrs. Elizabeth Turpin and Miss Bet Lynch who supervise the bar give sparkling service which together with the excellent ales goes some way to compensate for the quality of the food, which alas is well below the standard expected of pub grub in these days of the bistro explosion.

      Hi Dorothy,My great-great-great-grandmother was Mary Campbell born September 7, 1839 in Sandy Point/Port au Port, NL. She married Clement Pennell who was born February 9, 1842 in St. George's, NL. They had a child by the name of Joseph M. Pennell born December 20, 1867 in Sandy Point, and later moved to Curling, Newfoundland. I was weinorndg if you may know who Mary Campbell's parents and grandparents were, as I have been hitting dead ends for almost a month. I cannot find a marriage date, nor can I find anything regarding her parents. I'm thinking she may have decended from the Cammie/Camus families of the Port au Port peninsula however I just can't make the ties! Maybe she wasn't born in Sandy Point? Any help would be great!Thanks in advance,Melanie

      I have tried to research this side of falimy and recently discovered her parents were John Campbell and Margaret Macdonald. Campbell had two brothers, Stephen and Daniel, (referred to as Donald). They lived in Campbell's Creek. John Campbell's parents were Archibald Campbell and Mary MacNeil OR CHISHOLM , they lived near Antigonish in Nova Scotia. The three brothers moved to NL. One to Codroy, One to Sandy Point. Some records indicate that Stephen Campbell was referred to Camet or Camay and Not Campbell, I think that is where the idea came that they were of Mi'kmaq ancesty. I should state I have old pictures of three men hunting and they have a resemblance to the indian way of life. My grandfather was James Pennell and he owned the old butcher shop in Curling in early 1900 s.
