PROPERTY HISTORY

The Mouland House was constructed in 1893 as part of a duplex shared by Edward (1857) and his younger brother Roger (1865 – 1922). Edward and Roger were two of Mark and Maria Mouland’s eleven children. Of the eleven children, Edward and Roger lived in the only duplex built in the neighbourhood of Mockbeggar. Mark and Maria’s other children were Susannah (1852), Caroline (1855), Francis (1859), Archibald (1861), Fanny (1863), Mary (1867), Martha (1869), Arabella (1871) and Dorcas (1873).

In 1915 Roger’s oldest son, Abednego (1893 – 1958) took ownership of his father’s section of the duplex upon his marriage to Maggie Faulkner (1895 – 1920). During this period Abednego and Maggie decided to separate their home from Edward’s half of the duplex and roll it to the far east corner of the Mouland property creating a fully detached single dwelling house. Edward’s section of the duplex is currently being restored and is available for purchase. Once Bonavista Living fully restores the property several original features will be reinstated, such as two over two windows and storms with the minimal window trim, as well as traditional spruce clapboard.
