Lance Cove - CBS

Population in 1951 was 16

A former fishing and farming community between Upper Gullies and Seal Cove, which became a part of Conception Bay South when area communities were incorporated as a single community in 1971. Census records since 1961 have included Lance Cove under Conception Bay South. Seary felt that the name Lance Cove may have originated with "the lance or lawnce", or "sand-eel, a long thin fish which appears in June " in Newfoundland waters with the caplin and is also used for bait. The name could also be an anglicization of "L'anse," reflecting the early appearance of French fishing fleets in Conception Bay.
