Seal Cove, Conception Bay

Population in 1981 was 626

A part of the town of Conception Bay South (C.B.S.) since 1986, Seal Cove is situated between Upper Gullies and Holyrood. The western limit of C.B.S., in 1994 Seal Cove was generally considered to include nearby Lance Cove and Indian Pond. Tradition has it that the earliest settlers came to Seal Cove from the older communities on the north side of Conception Bay. The community first appears in the census in 1857, with a population of 61. By 1884 it had a population of 117, and this number has continued to grow steadily.
