History of Jollimore Cemetery

Deed registered 6 Oct. 1884, indenture 12 Sept. 1884

Between Henry CD Twining, Barrister at Law, and Hibbert Binney, Lord Bishop of N.S. for one dollar of lawful money of N.S. Unto the Lord Bishop and his successors in office, all the land long appropriated and used as a burial ground, situated on the property known as Boscobel, on the Northwest Arm near the City of Halifax, and described as…128 feet on the north, 80 feet on the east, 104 feet on the south, and 92 feet on the west. To have and to hold the said piece of land forever in trust for the inhabitants of the Western side of the North West Arm for the burial of their dead.

The original settlers on the 50 acres surrounding the graveyard were John George and Sophia (Slaunwhite) Jollimore who came to the Northwest Arm in 1826 with their large family. Burials may have taken place as early as 1844 when Mrs. George (Susanna Westhaver) Boutilier drowned in the Northwest Arm in front of her home which, in 1844, was located on the shore of the Arm where Boulderwood Drive now ends.
