List of Inhabitants 1838

Western Shores of Newfoundland

NOTE:

This list of names was found as a document at the AC Hunter Library. There was no author noted on the cover of the document. It may be only a partial listing of those living in the area during 1838 or it may be a complete listing. I would appreciate any additional information on this if anyone has any.
