Apparently there are two Black Islands in the Twillingate District as noted below. We have separated them into two separate pages and labeled them as Black Island #1 and #2. Milt Anstey has been kind enough to provide the following information relating to these two communities.
There are two Black Islands in the Twillingate District during this time period. The larger and more prominate "Black Island" is located near Exploit's Island and Samson's Island, at the entrance to Notre Dame Bay. I know that some of my distant relatives, and other residents with the surname; Hill, Potter, Dorey, Hamilton, Hennifant, etc. lived there until the 1990's.
There is a smaller "Black Island" located just off the south end of Twillingate Island, somewhere between Twillingate Island and Hillgrade/Fairbanks on New World Island. I think the surnames of Sansome and Rice lisved on this Island.
Additional information provided by Joe Jennings.
Black Island, Friday's Bay is near the New World Island causeway. The families include the Rice's and Sansome's who relocated in the last centaury. Most would have moved to the modern day Hillgrade (Salt Pans) and Newville (Burnt Cove).

|* VERIFICATION ITEMS|
|Item 1||The following columns are verified exactly as to the original (assuming legibility of data):|
Dwelling Number, Family Number, Surname (but capitalized for ease of reading), Given Name, Sex, Birth Year, Age
|Item 2||Community Name as a column is omitted as it only has repeats of the community name from the title.|
|Item 3||Words like Relation, Status, Birth Month may or may not have been abbreviated by either the Enumerator or the Transcriber. These variations are self-explanatory, were not considered detrimental to the informational content, and would have taken considerable time to correct. Thus they were not corrected in the verification process. Any informational errors were corrected.|
|Item 4||The Birth Place spelling may vary somewhat, due to Enumerator's or Transcriber's abbreviations. Any informational errors were corrected.|
