A Seafaring Maiden Bed and Breakfast Information

Description

Located in the lovely village of Granville Ferry and overlooking the historic town of Annapolis Royal, this beautiful 1881 registered heritage property was home to Sea Captain, Ship Builder, and Merchant, Captain Joseph Hall. Captain Hall's family ties to Annapolis Royal and Granville, Nova Scotia date back to sometime after 1760 when his great, great grandfather, John Hall brought his family from Medford, Massachusetts as English Planters. A Seafaring Maiden was named after one of Captain Joseph Hall's daughters, Elizabeth Pritchard Hall. In March of 1870, 20-year-old Elizabeth sailed with her father out of Saint John on the 1444 ton full-rigged ship Rothesay. On the fourth day out of New Orleans with a cargo of cotton for Liverpool, England, the first mate, and then nine days later Captain Hall, came down with smallpox. Sailing in squally weather, Captain Hall set storm canvas, placed Bessie in command and promoted the carpenter to first mate. Depending upon the basic navigational skills which she had learned from her father on previous voyages, Bessie and the depleted crew of six sailed across the Atlantic arriving in Liverpool on May 11. Bessie received the respect and admiration of her crew for her accomplishment known to be unique in nautical history. Elizabeth Pritchard Hall died on June 25, 1930, but lives on in local legend as "The Seafaring Maiden of Granville".

Bill and Ann Marie Monk have always shared the dream of owning and lovingly restoring an old and historic home. Through ancestral research done by her mother, Ann Marie, great-great grand daughter to Captain Joseph Hall, discovered his home now known as The Seafaring Maiden bringing it back into the family in 2003 where it will remain for future generations. Bill, having completed a successful 31 year career in retail, business management, and customer service brings that expertise to the owning and operating of this Bed & Breakfast. Both Bill and Ann Marie are well known by guests as welcoming hosts and look forward to inviting you into their home.
