Where you’ll be

Bonavista, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada

The Mockbeggar Plantation dates back to the 17th century when the town of Bonavista was first settled. It was the former neighbourhood of politician and Confederation advocate F. Gordon Bradley who was key to bringing Newfoundland into Confederation. The Mockbeggar Plantation was illustrated on the 2017 Canadian commemorative $10 bill.

The area known as Mockbegger is the home to a number of strange tales. Several of them revolve around what is known as Bradley House on the Mockbeggar Property. One resident heard phantom visitors walking about, talking, singing and having a party, complete with slamming doors. After a while the phantom party‑goers had settled down, and the woman had been able to get some sleep. Local folklore maintains they are friendly ghosts, and that if you don’t bother them, they won’t bother you. The TM House is next door. In the 1920s, under the direction of William Coaker, a canal was dug in the area. As the canal was being dug a number of coffins were excavated. Then, years later, some more coffins were unearthed during the construction of the new bridge across the canal in 1946. The graves were believed to predate the earliest cemetery in Bonavista, which dated to 1725.
