History

William Born (1844-1910), Catholic priest, was born at St. John's, Newfoundland, on 10 January 1844, the son of Mary (Doutney) and Valentine Born. He died at St. John's on 10 December 1910 and was buried in Belvedere Cemetery.

Born was educated in St. John's and completed his studies for the priesthood at St. Bonaventure's College. Born was ordained a priest in the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, St. John's, on 18 August 1867, by Bishop John Thomas Mullock.

Rev. William Born served as a curate in Sacred Heart Parish, St. Kyran's, Placentia West, under Rev. James Walsh, parish priest. He was transferred to St. Patrick's Parish, Burin, where he served as curate under the pastorate of Rev. Richard O'Donnell, whom he later succeeded as parish priest. In 1882, Rev. Born was appointed by Bishop Thomas Joseph Power as parish priest of Holy Redeemer Parish, Trepassey. He also served as chairman of the Roman Catholic School Board for the Trepassey District, until the time of his transfer to St. John's. In September 1908 Rev. Born was named Dean of the Diocese of St. John's and Rector of St. Patrick's Parish, St. John's, with residence in the presbytery at Corpus Christi Parish, Kilbride.
