Provincial Business Directory
| HEAD OF BAY DESPAIR |
In the district of Fortune Bay, about 18 miles from the entrance to Bay Despair. In this bay is some of the finest scenery in Newfoundland; indeed, for beauty and grandeur it would be hard to find it surpassed. Up the bay, near its head, a stream of water falls directly into the sea from a height of 400 feet. Bay Despair is distant from Harbor Briton 35 miles. Population 40.
Barnes William, farmer Benoit Laurence, farmer Benoit Paul, farmer Sage James, telegraph employee Squires Jordan, telegraph employee Sutton, Jeremiah, lumberman
The entries have been transcribed as
they appear in the 1871 Lovell's directory.
Over the years, many of the names have become
colloquialized or spelled differently.
