Paddy Power's house on Cod Seine Cove Road in Mobile, up the Southern Shore, was in my possession for nearly 20 years. Paddy Power was an interesting man, he lived to be almost 100, traded and raised horses, never fished, kept pasture animals and raised root crops and hay.

After looking for pictures of Paddy Power, fruitless for nearly 15 years, some appeared and his story, what could be gleaned, is told here along with some details of the house he built in the late 1800's.

John Mason was an early settlement governor of Newfoundland associated with Vaughan, Carey, and others. He spent many years in Newfoudnland and its waters and in 1620 issued a Discourse extolling the Island for its natural history, economic potential, and as a strategic place to begin the British Empire. He promoted its settlement.
This monograph presents Mason's Discourse and translates 17th century terms and names and illustrates the various natural historic and geographic bases of his work.

The Island of Newfoundland has been depicted on maps and charts for 500 years. By a chance encounter, the map collection of early modern maps at the John Carter Brown Library, at Brown University, found online are available for viewing. Selected excerpts trace the Island and its names from the early 1500's to the first modern maps, based on Cook, in the late 1700's.

The selected map excerpts are annotated and names listed in a form of a gazetteer. Very useful for understanding how the Island population grew and prospered and how settlement proceeded despite official sanction against living here for so many centuries.
