  • About

    Holyrood was once known as ''Hollyrode'' in 1689 when hydrographer, John Thronton, charted Newfoundland trading. Hollyrode has been interpreted by historians as an old English name for ''Holy Cross'' from the ancient Anglo Saxon word ''rode'' meaning staff or cross. Like many other names in Newfoundland, Holyrood breathes a high sense of religious fervor and faith.
