We are well aware of the Joy's.
My mother was a Strapp from Harbour Main.
I was born in St John's.
Our great great grandparents Patrick Strapp and Alice Deady Strapp had a daughter Margaret Strapp born 1830- she married a Capt Pat Deady- they had 3 children- Capt Deady was lost at sea.
Margaret Strapp Deady remarried in 1867 to James Joy of Hr Main.
One of Margaret Strapp- Deady-Joy daughters from her first marriage, another Margaret(Deady), in later life married a Capt John Joy of Holyrood- this Margaret died on 20th Jan 1891 in Holyrood, at the age of 37 years, leaving 8 children.
