William married Ozanne Boudreau of Wedgeport on January 16, 1888. William went to sea at a young age and his is known to have survived no fewer than nine shipwrecks. Ironically, it was here at home that he was first injured. While crossing the track with his oxen, they were struck by the train, breaking his jaw and breaking the oxen's horns. In 1928 he fell out of a hay loft in his barn, a fall which left him disabled.

211 Both of Antoine's sons survived childhood, but only the second one married. Jean le jeune married Marie-Anne, daughter of Pierre Doucet and Henriette Pelletret, at Port-Royal in c1676. Between 1677 and the early 1700s, Marie-Anne gave Jean le jeune 14 children, eight sons and six daughters. Members of the family were counted at Minas in the early 1690s and at Chignecto in 1713. Jean le jeune died probably at Minas in c1707, in his 50s. Marie-Anne died at Grand-Pré in November 1710. Four of her and Jean le jeune's daughters married into the LeBlanc, Boudrot, and Saulnier families. Seven of Jean le jeune's sons also created their own families, and three of them married sisters:

In 1686, the steward of the "Nouvelle France," Mr. de Meules, orders a new general census of Acadia, where we can read: "Antoine Hebert-72 years; Genevieve Lefranc-80 years; Jehan Hebert-32 years; Doucet Anne-22 years; Jacques-9 years; Pierre-7 years; Jehan-5 years, Jehanne-3 years; and Joseph-2 months old. Jehan (Jean) married Anne Doucet in 1676 in Port-Royal and lived at that time with his parents. After the death of his father in October, 1687, Jehan and his family leave to settle in the parish of Grand-Pre where they cultivate their land, putting up kikes to prevent the high tides from flooding their low lands. He is a prosperous settler and has more than 10 children. In 1703, he still has with him 6 boys and 4 girls. It is said that the 3 boys are old enough to bear arms since they were at war with England. The boy's names are Jacques (26 years), Rene (14 years), and Christophe (12 years). They participate in the battle of July 2, 1704 and help repel the 1300 Englishmen who landed at Port-Royal.

221 British monarch, Queen consort of King George V. The daughter of the impoverished Francis, Duke of Teck and Princess Mary Adelaide of Cambridge, her full name and title at birth was Her Serene Highness Princess Victoria Mary Augusta Louise Olga Pauline Claudine Agnes of Teck, popularly known as Princess May. She was engaged to Prince Albert Victor, elder son of the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) in 1891. She accepted his proposal only because it was expected of her. After the prince's sudden death, she became engaged to his brother, Prince George, Duke of Clarence, with whom she had much more in common. They were married on July 6, 1893 at St. James Palace. Theirs was an exceptionally successful marriage, producing one daughter and five sons. Upon Edward VII's accession in 1901, the couple became Prince and Princess of Wales. Edward died in 1910, and they were crowned King and Queen on June 22, 1911. Widowed in 1936, Queen Mary lived to see her eldest son, Edward VIII abdicate the throne, her son George VI reign successfully, and her eldest granddaughter, Elizabeth, come to the throne in 1952. Regarded as the matriarch of the royal family, her funeral and lying-in-state created unprecedented scenes of public mourning.

222 At least one living or private individual is linked to this note - Details withheld. of Great Britan and Ireland and Elector of Hanover, King George Augustus "George" II, (I14393)
223 British Monarch. He ascended the throne on December 11, 1936, after the abdication of his brother Edward VIII. Generally considered a man of weak character, he showed, during the World War II, to have energy and great charisma. He had a valid help from his wife Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon and Sir Winston Churchill, appointed Prime Minister in May 1940, in addressing the serious problems of the United Kingdom. He was highly respected by his people because they flatly refused to leave England during the bombing of London, and when the German invasion seemed imminent. After the war, despite his health was in decline, he was promoter of economic and social recovery of Great Britain. Winsor, King George VI Albert Frederick Arthur George (I14367)
224 British Monarch. He reigned as King of Great Britain, Ireland and Emperor of India from 1901 to 1910. The eldest son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, he was born in London at Buckingham Palace in 1841. He was educated privately and at Edinburgh, Oxford and Cambridge, and married Princess Alexandra, daughter of King Christian IX of Denmark in 1863. Together they had six children. As Prince of Wales, Edward VII's behavior led him into several social scandals and even after the death of his father in 1861, he was consistently denied any share in government by his mother. After his marriage he continued to have affairs which were public knowledge; the actress Lily Langtry, Lady Brooke and Mrs. Keppel being amongst the best known of his mistresses. At the age of fifty-nine in 1901, by then a grandfather, he ascended the throne. Many shared Queen Victoria's reservations about her son, and it was soon apparent that he displayed skill in dealing with his ministers and with foreign rulers. He was particularly concerned with Britain's role in Europe and he helped to promote ententes with France and Russia and to defuse the rivalry with Germany. Edward VII was also a patron of the arts and sciences and helped found the Royal College of Music, and was one of England's leading sportsmen. Horses from his stables won the English Derby three times. His reign ended when he died suddenly of pneumonia just before midnight at Buckingham Palace on May 6, 1910. The sixty-eight year old monarch's sudden death threw his country into a state of shock. Attending his funeral where nine crowned heads of Europe, seven queens and a host of minor royalty and foreign ambassadors, representing more than seventy different countries.

of United Kingdom, King Edward VII (I14372)
225 British Monarch. She reigned as Queen Consort of the United Kingdom from 1936 until the death of her husband, King George VI in 1952, after which she was known as "The Queen Mother". Born Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon in 1900, during the last months of the reign of Queen Victoria, she was the ninth child (fourth daughter) of the 14th Earl of Strathmore, a descendent of the Royal House of Scotland. She grew up at her parent's country estate in Hertfordshire, north of London, where she was educated at home. Although it was reported by biographers that she preferred James Stuart, the son of a Scottish earl, she married the Duke of York in 1923 after a three-year engagement. He was the second son of the reigning King, George V, and his wife, Queen Consort Mary. In 1926 she gave birth to Elizabeth, and four years later to her second and last child, Margaret. The Duke of York, as the second child, was not to become King, a role that suited her well. However, when King George V died in January 1936, and Prince Edward became King Edward VIII, only to abdicate his throne eleven months later; the Duke of York became King George VI and Lady Elizabeth became Queen Elizabeth. The British monarchy had been damaged by the debacle and scandal over the abdication of King Edward VIII so that he could marry an American divorcee, Wallis Simpson, and the new Queen Elizabeth set about making her husband into a viable and acceptable monarch. She worked diligently to have the King overcome his speech impediment, and served as a buffer for his notoriously fierce temper. Sharply opinionated, she also worked diligently to discredit the king's older brother and his new wife, working to deny her the title of "Your Royal Highness." With the coming of World War II, Queen Elizabeth worked diligently to support her people during the London Blitz of 1940, often visiting the people immediately after a severe bombing raid. The Royal Family became a symbol of Britain's wartime spirit. Unknown to most of her subjects (or ignored by many of them) was that she believed British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain's policy of appeasement to German Chancellor Adolph Hitler was the correct course of action, that she distrusted the motives of Winston Churchill and loathed the man, hoping to keep him out of the government. When her husband died suddenly in 1952, she was given the title of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, however, most of her subjects preferred to call her affectionately "The Queen Mum". In her later years, in the 1970s and 1980s, she became the standard for all royal behavior, and gave advice to both Diana Spencer (who married her grandson, Prince Charles) and Sarah Ferguson (who married her other grandson, Prince Andrew) on how to act when in public. During the turbulent years when both grandsons divorced their wives, she was considered one of the Royal Family's most stable and influential assets with the public. She was noted for her devoted public service and her love for her people, which was amply returned by her subjects. In some public opinion polls, she was favored over her daughter to be monarch, a position she would not and could not hold. She died peacefully in her sleep at age 101, just two months after the death of her second daughter, Princess Margaret. She was laid to rest beside her husband, King George VI, at Windsor Castle. Bowes-Lyon, Elizabeth Angela Marguerite The Queen Mother (I14366)
226 British Monarch. She reigned as Queen of Great Britain and Ireland from 1837 to 1901 and as Empress of India beginning in 1876. One of the most famous rulers in English history, she was born in London at Kensington Palace in May of 1819. The only child of Edward Duke of Kent, Victoria Maria Louisa of Saxe-Coburg and granddaughter of King George III, Queen Victoria's reign spanned more than half a century in which Great Britain reached the height of its power. It saw the acquisition of many new lands overseas and a great colonial empire that enjoyed tremendous industrial expansion at home. As a result, the time of Victoria's reign is often called the Victorian Age. The stability and dignity of her reign also restored the popularity of the monarchy. At age eighteen Victoria ascended the English throne in June of 1837 following the death of her uncle King William IV and was crowned in Westminster Abbey on June 28, 1838. It was soon realized that the young queen was perfectly capable of performing her duties. Taught by William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne, her first prime minister, she had a clear grasp of constitutional principles and the scope of her own prerogative. In February of 1840 the Saxe-Coburg influence upon Victoria's life was strengthened by her marriage to her cousin, Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. Together they had nine children. Strongly influenced by her husband, with whom she worked in close harmony, Victoria went into lengthy seclusion after his death in 1861 to Osborne, Balmoral, Windsor or the Riviera. This decreased her popularity and motivated a Republican movement against the Crown. Victoria's recognition as empress of India, and her Diamond Jubilee in 1887 put her back in her subjects favor and increased the prestige of the monarchy. She continued to reign until the later part of 1900, when her health began to fail and she retired to Osbourne, her seaside home on the Isle of Wight. There an era ended when the Queen died in 1901. After a state funeral Victoria was buried beside her beloved Albert at Frogmore.

of United Kingdom, Queen Victoria I (I14375)
227 British Monarch. She was the Queen consort of King George II. Daughter of Johann Friedrich, margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach. She married George, electorate of Hanover, in September of 1705. They ascended the throne of England in 1727. Theirs was a successful marriage, despite George's mistresses, and she bore 12 children, 8 of whom survived. Beautiful and intelligent, she was very popular with the people, and was involved in matters of state more than any other queen since the Middle Ages. A popular satirical verse of the time went "You may strut, dapper George, but 'twill all be in vain, We all know 'tis Queen Caroline, not you, that reign". She died at the age of 54 of complications following a rupture of the womb. of Brandenburg-Ansbach, Queen consort Wilhelmina Charlotte Caroline (I14394)
228 British Monarch. The second son of King Edward VII and Alexandra of Denmark, because he was not first in line to the throne, he did not have the same education and upbringing of his older brother, Prince Albert. He chose the career of a Naval Officer. When his brother, Albert, died in 1892, George became the heir apparent. He became King on the death of his father, King Edward VII in 1910. He was married on July 6, 1893 to Mary (May) of Teck, and together they had five children, four boys and one girl. During one of George and Mary's many visits to the front in WWI, George's horse rolled on top of him, shattering his pelvis. It was an injury that would leave him in pain for the rest of his life. His reign saw many changes throughout England and Ireland. He saw to the establishment of an independent Irish Parliament, and the Government of Ireland Act of 1920 divided Ireland's religious lines. Similar establishments of self-governance were granted to Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and India (through the Government of India Act of 1935). He is well known for bringing dignity, diligence, duty, and humbleness to the monarchy, evolving the image of the royals into something quite different from the reign of his grandparents and his father. He died the year after his silver jubilee, at the age of 71, after several bouts of bronchitis. Saxe Couburg Gotha And Windsor, King George V Frederick Ernest Albert (I14368)
229 British Nobility. Younger daughter of Prince Adolphus, 1st Duke of Cambridge and Princess Augusta of Hesse-Cassel, she was born Her Royal Highness Princess Mary Adelaide Wilhelmina Elizabeth Guelph. She was ceaselessly popular with the public, and nicknamed Fat Mary for her very wide girth, prompting her first cousin, Queen Victoria to comment "The mob likes fat people". Mary had extravagent tastes in food, clothes, and jewels, and was the first of the royal family to patronize many charities. She married Francis of Teck, later Duke of Teck, on June 12, 1866. Together they had three sons and one daughter, Mary, who married Prince George, later King George V. Princess Mary died at White Lodge, Richmond Park, at the age of 64. of Cambridge, Mary Adelaide Wilhelmina Elizabeth (I14371)

"Captain Nelson L. Amero (August 15, 1884?April 12, 1963) was originally from West Pubnico, Nova Scotia. He was married to Maude Georgina Powers (I believe she was from Newfoundland), and I've been told they met on a passenger ship coming to Gloucester, Mass. They were married here somewhere in the early 1900s, settled on Columbia Street, and had 9 children. He owned the fishing schooner Doris F. Amero (named after his only daughter) during the 1930s and 1940s. It used to tie up at Sherm Ruth's Wharf here in Gloucester. Many of his sons fished with him.

One of Captain Amero's sons was Stanford Owen Amero (who died in 1947). He was an engineer on the family fishing boat, keeping the motor in working order. My mother, Ruth Maude (Amero) Viator is his daughter."--Lori Viator, 2011

248 Caroline of Brandenburg-Ansbach (Wilhelmina Charlotte Caroline; 1 March 1683 ? 20 November 1737[1]) was Queen of Great Britain as the wife of King George II.

Her father, Margrave John Frederick of Brandenburg-Ansbach, belonged to a branch of the House of Hohenzollern and was the ruler of a small German state, the Principality of Ansbach. Caroline was orphaned at a young age and moved to the enlightened court of her guardians, King Frederick I and Queen Sophia Charlotte of Prussia. At the Prussian court, her previously limited education was widened, and she adopted the liberal outlook possessed by Sophia Charlotte, who became her good friend and whose views influenced Caroline all her life.

As a young woman, Caroline was much sought-after as a bride. After rejecting the suit of the nominal King of Spain, Archduke Charles of Austria, she married George Augustus, the third-in-line to the British throne and heir apparent to the Electorate of Hanover. They had eight children, seven of whom grew to adulthood.

Caroline moved permanently to Britain in 1714 when her husband became Prince of Wales. As Princess of Wales, she joined her husband in rallying political opposition to his father King George I. In 1717, her husband was expelled from court after a family row. Caroline came to be associated with Robert Walpole, an opposition politician who was a former government minister. Walpole rejoined the government in 1720, and Caroline's husband and King George I reconciled publicly, on Walpole's advice. Over the next few years, Walpole rose to become the leading minister.

Caroline became queen and electress consort upon her husband's accession in 1727. Her eldest son, Frederick, became Prince of Wales. He was a focus for the opposition, like his father before him, and Caroline's relationship with him was strained. As princess and as queen, Caroline was known for her political influence, which she exercised through and for Walpole. Her tenure included four regencies during her husband's stays in Hanover, and she is credited with strengthening the House of Hanover's place in Britain during a period of political instability. Caroline was widely mourned by her political allies following her death in 1737, as well as by the King, who refused to remarry.
