Thomas Head *1 This servant was incorrectly listed as Thomas Mead in my initial transcription. Later research uncovered the fact that he was actually Thomas Head. In the Fishery part of this document he is listed as the agent for Matthew Morry &Co. Kevin Reddigan

Thomas Veal *2 I initially transcribed this name as Thomas Neal. On closer scrutiny of the original document, I am inclined to believe the surname was actually Veal. Kevin Reddigan

James Trehee,*3 Michael Hawcey,
Patt Hederton
I initially transcribed the names of these indivduals as James Retee, Michael Hanecy and Patrick Hedeston respectively. On closer scrutiny of the original document, I am inclined to believe these surnames are as follows:
Trehee, likely a variant spelling of the Irish surname Trehey, Trahey, etc.
Hawcy, a rare surname of Ireland or England. This individual appears at Fermeuse in the 1800 Fishery listing.
Hederton, likley a variant spelling of the surnname Heatherton. This individual appears at Ferryland in the 1800 Fishery listing.

James Power *4 I initially transcribed this name as James Forrest?. This name is very difficult to decipher, so I can't be sure of its spelling, but it may actually be James Power (age 13), eldest son of Michael and Alice Power, a resident family. Kevin Reddigan

NAMEDESCRIPTION OF ERRORREPORTED BY
Luke Kneeff, Redmund Gaule *1 I missed the names of these two dieters in my initial transcription. The individual named here as Luke Kneeff is also listed in the Fishery section as Luke Knef. Both of these spellings are likely abbreviated variants of the Irish surname Denieffe. In Newfoundland the surname is usually spelled Denief. Kevin Reddigan
