Landowners in HOLYROOD CENTRAL and the SOUTH SIDE.
The information was taken from an old Property Map and Evelyn Morrissey has been kind enough to allow us to post it to the Newfoundland's Grand Bank Site and displayed on the Harbour Main Regional page.

According to Evelyn, thanks should also be given to Eileen Walsh
for her part in transcribing these records from the map.

While we have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible,
there could be some typographical errors.
If you should find any errors, please contact Evelyn Morrissey at:
