The Nevard Birthday Calendar

January 19 would have marked the 142nd birthday of Mary (Hall) Nevard. Wife of Ernest Samuel Nevard, mother of Bill and Dick Nevard. Born at Saxmundham, Suffolk, England, she came to Canada to join Ernest on  the homestead in what eventually would become Saskatchewan in 1905.
This photo from the early forties  is possibly one of the last pictures of her. She died in September of 1943.


  1. Nice-looking couple, both young and old.

  2. The vastness of Canada must have been an amazing contrast to England.

    1. That was my thought too. The long voyage by ship and then again by rail more than half way across Canada.
