204. Gardiner, Dr. Sylvester Gardiner, Dr. Sylvester There were many reports written about Newfoundland for and by British government officials in the 1600s - and 1700s, particularly about the feasibility of settlement and the effect settlement might have on the very - lucrative fishery conducted by the mercantile companies based in the West Country of England. One little - known report was this one, written by Dr. Sylvester Gardiner in 1785. One possible reason for its obscurity - is its recommendations in favour of settlement, something the West Country merchants had discouraged. - Gardiner's report is a very positive one, strongly supporting settlement, the development of judicial and - governmental systems, and promoting agriculture and timber cutting. It presents an optimistic picture of - the potential of Newfoundland as a valuable part of the British Empire, particularly with the recent loss of - the American colonies. MF-035

205. Garland, Charles Garland, Charles This fonds consists of a photograph of a silhouette of a Charles Garland. On the back of the image is - written Surrogate Charles D. Garland / died at Harbour Grace 1810 / 80 years of age. There is an - anomaly here in that Charles D. Garland was not the Charles Garland who was surrogate or who died in - 1810 at age 80. There were three Charles Garlands in Harbour Grace between 1776 and 1810: Charles Garland the - surrogate (1730-1810); his son, Charles Garland (1776-1815); and Charles Davis Garland (1777-?). It would appear that some time after 1895 (D. W. Prowse in A History of Newfoundland (1895) never uses - Davis when referring to Charles Garland the surrogate), Charles Garland the surrogate and Charles Davis - Garland became confused or fused into one person. It is very possible that the fusion has been caused by William A. Munn, who is the author of a series of articles on Harbour Grace, which appeared in The - Newfoundland Quarterly in the 1930s. In one of these articles (NQ, Vol. 35(2), p. 11) he refers to "Charles Davis Garland" who succeeded his father, George Garland, as "Magistrate in Conception Bay about - 1750". This silhouette is reproduced on that page bearing the caption "Surrogate Charles Davis Garland - / Harbour Grace". Written on the back of this picture, in pencil, is the name "Mr. W. A. Munn", leading to - the supposition that this image once belonged to him, and as the handwriting is similar, if Munn wrote his - name on the back to denote ownership, he may also have written the information concerning Garland. - Indeed, this may be the image that was used as the illustration in the The Newfoundland Quarterly article - referred to above. It is most probable that the person referred to in this article and the person pictured in the silhouette is - Charles Garland, the Surrogate Magistrate, who died in 1810 at age 80 and not his contemporary, Charles - Davis Garland, who is not known to have served Newfoundland in any judicial capacity. - The silhouette was a very common form of portraiture in the 18th and early 19th centuries, but had - become virtually obsolete by 1850 as a result of the camera and the photograph. The whereabouts of the - silhouette from which this reproduction was made is unknown. The silhouette appears to be of a man of - middle age and would probably date from the 1770s or 1780s; the photograph is undated but was - probably made between 1900 and 1935. MF-319

206. Garland, John Bingley  Garland, John Bingley With the establishment in the 1990s of the Trinity Trust, which has rebuilt the Garland-Lester House in - Trinity, Newfoundland, interest in John Bingley Garland, who once lived in the house, has been - re-awakened. This fonds contains a copy of Garland's last will and testament dated October 27, 1871, - together with two codicils made on the same date. The will was made many years after Garland had left - Newfoundland to return to England. It provides insight into the man, his treatment of his children and the - dispossession of his property.

214. Gosling, William Gilbert Gosling, William Gilbert It would appear from the small biography written and published by his wife after his death, that there was a much larger collection of the personal papers and manuscripts of William Gilbert Gosling than are evident here. In that book, Armine Gosling refers to letters, commendations, manuscripts, newspaper clippings and other items one might expect to find in a collection of personal papers. What has happened to them is not known. What is available here is a miscellany of Gosling's work, gathered from a variety of sources. Included are correspondence related to a magnetite deposit at Brigus, Newfoundland, a short typescript on the Anglo-American fishery case before the Hague Tribunal in 1911, a longer typescript on the history of American fishing rights in Newfoundland waters, and a bound copy in - draft form of An Act to Amend and Consolidate the Laws in Relation to the Municipal Affairs of the Town of St. John's, 1916, with various inserts and annotations in Gosling's hand. They provide a brief but important glimpse into Gosling's life and work. COLL-297

219. Great Britain Newfoundland Royal Commission 1933 Photographs Great Britain Newfoundland Royal Commission 1933 Photographs These photographs were part of the final report of the Newfoundland Royal Commission appointed by the British Parliament in 1933, at - the request of the Newfoundland government, to investigate the current financial state and future prospects of Newfoundland. The photographs were - probably used to provide the British officials with a pictorial view of selected Newfoundland communities and landscapes. - There are 65 photographs, all black and white. The first 36 are by the noted - Newfoundland photographer Robert Holloway (1850-1904) or by Holloway Studio. Consequently, some of the images may date from the 1890s or early - 1900s. The remainder of the photographs are probably contemporary to 1933. They are aerial photographs and are possibly the work of two different - photographers. - The images are mainly of Newfoundland outport communities and depict architecture and landscape rather than people. Several communities - have since been resettled. There are a number of images of northern Labrador showing the rugged terrain along the coast. The photographs should - prove valuable to researchers interested in the particular communities depicted, and also to those studying vernacular architecture, landscape and land - use, and early exploration of Labrador by air.
