Lovell's 1871
Provincial Business Directory
A large fishing settlement on the Strait shore from St. John's to Cape Race, in the district of Ferryland. It has a very fine harbor which is much frequented by vessels unable from stormy weather to make St. John's. The cod fishing is carried on here mostly in large boats and by means of nets and seines. The number of boats employed is close upon 100, and of nets and seines about 150. Most of the inhabitants have some cultivated land which occupies their time in conjunction with the fisheries and which supplies them with potatoes and bay, the only crops cultivated to any extent. It is a port of entry and port town, and has a resident magistrate. Distant from St. John's bay by road, 19 miles. Mail weekly. Population 734.
