Hi I noticed most of the discussion concerning the upward name centers around Harry's Harbour. My Grandmother was Emily Alice Upwards of East Bay, Newfoundland. She was born on August 12 1917, her parents were John Thomas Upwards and Florance of La Poile, Newfoundland. John Thomas Upwards was born on May 22nd 1880. His parents were John Upwards and Mary Ann Organ. Ths family of Upwards eventually moved to the West Coast of Newfoundland and settled in Bonne Bay, Newfoundland. Can anyone shed more light on the connection between the South Coast Upwards and Harry's Harbour Upward.
