  • Notes  Married:
    • Proprietors of the Olde Yard Inn, Virgin Gorda, BVI

      From an article by Ralph Blumenthal published in the New York Times, Travel section, November 13, 1983:

      "Visitors interested in something more centrally situated, yet still not quite conventional or on the scale of Little Dix Bay, might try the Olde Yard Inn, an 11-room establishment with no pool or adjacent beach but a good restaurant, five historic gravesites and an extraordinary library. The expatriate-Canadian proprietors, Joseph and Ellen Devine, built the twin-octagonal redwood and mahogany library to house their collection of rare books. At the least encouragement, Mrs. Devine will guide guests through such esoteric volumes as ''Pictures of New York on Blue Staffordshire Pottery'' published in 1899 on silk pages. The lively bar with its chess and backgammon boards is a runnerup attraction. One afternoon a passerby wandered into the unaccustomedly empty bar and started away. ''I guess the bar is closed,'' he said.

      ''The bar is never closed,'' said Mrs. Devine, offering up a drink. [1]
