I started this tree some time ago, researching the Penn(e)yís of Tack's Beach, Placentia Bay, Newfoundland, Canada. Tackís Beach was a community that was resettled (abandoned) in the mid 1960ís. My family resettled from there to Fortune, Fortune Bay, Newfoundland in 1965. The English community of Tackís Beach began in the mid 1800ís

My research of church and census records at the Newfoundland Archives and information from family members reveal that my Great-grandfather (James Penney) from Greens Harbour, Trinity Bay married a Mary Ann Hynes from Tack's Beach. They had three sons and a daughter. Their children were born in Tackís Beach in the 1880ís. That was as far back my research had taken me.

I had my tree information posted on the internet for some years looking for information on my Grand-father James Penney. Then in October, 2004 I received an email from Betty(Cumby)Weir (third cousin) making the connection with James Penney. His Grand-father (William Penney) came from Dorset, England to Carbonear, Newfoundland in the early 1800ís.

My Family tree also contains information about the following branches:
The Hynesís of Tackís Beach;
The Seniorís of Port Elizabeth (Flat Islands), Placentia Bay, Newfoundland.
The Simmsís of Gaultois and Muddy Hole, Newfoundland.
The Cumbyís & Penneyís of Greens Harbour.
The Kavanaghís and Coles of St. Johnís, Newfoundland; plus many more family names in the various branches of the tree Ė see surname list.
