John Guy Settlement Cemetery - Cupids, Newfoundland
A View of the Cemetery

This shows the recently excavated John Guy Settlement Cemetery, in Cupids, Newfoundland (originally Cupers Cove).
The two unearthed headstones can be seen along with several other slate markers. 
This cemetery dates back to the early 1600's.

The John Guy Settlement (established August 1610) was the first english settlement in what is now known as Canada.
It is reported that the settlement was probably in existance until the late 1700's.
