Easter Sunday 1903

Easter Sunday was on April 15th in 1903. It is a historic date in Nevard history. Ernest and Arthur Nevard arrived in Halifax harbour aboard the S.S. Lake Manitoba from Essex, U.K. It was Ernest's 25th birthday. They had a long journey by rail before eventually reaching what would be their homesteads in district of Assiniboia (later Saskatchewan).


  1. You have to wonder if they'd have come if they realized how hard a job awaited them. Happy Easter, Ralph.

    1. Very true Gorges. It was quite an adventure. And Happy EAster to you too.
