General note

Anne Budgell grew up an Air Force “Brat”, living on military bases all over Canada, until her parents returned home to Labrador in 1966. Budgell’s first Trip to Newfoundland was in 1967 to attend Memorial University. She had a long career as a radio and television journalists with CBC in Newfoundland and Labrador, retiring in 2007. She credits her parents with instilling in her an interest in Labrador and its history. Her father, George, grew up in Rigolet, the son of Hudson’s Bay Company factor George Budgell from Fogo Island and Phyllis Painter of Sandwich Bay. Her mother, Ruby, grew up in North West River, the daughter of trapper Murdock McLean from Kenemich and May Baikie of Moliak.
