Ferryland District/Parish CE Marriage Records

the book "Gentlemen Bishops and Faction Fighters" indicates that Rev. Samuel Cole,
a SPG missionary for Ferryland and Bay Bulls, resided at Ferryland from 1792-94.

Bay Bulls/Witless Bay Parish RC Marriage Records

Bay Bulls Parish, with Witless Bay as the parish center, was created about 1831. Before that time
it was served by curates from St. John's, but late in 1831, Father Patrick Cleary was appointed as
the first resident parish priest. In 1893, the initial parish was divided, with settlements south of
Witless Bay forming the separate parish of Tors Cove. In 1922, a third parish was created at
Bay Bulls, and settlements in this area were again redistributed between Bay Bulls,
Witless Bay and Tors Cove parishes.


1784 - 1830 Prior to late 1831, this area was part of St. John the Baptist RC (Basilica) Parish, St. John's, therefore most surviving pre 1831 marriage records for this area are to be found in that parish. See Ferryland District (Southern Shore) RC Marriage Records above.
1830 -1880 Transcribed records below are mainly for the settlements north of Brigus South, i.e. Lamanche (La Monche, etc.), Bauline (Baleen) St. Michael's (Caplin Cove), Seals Cove (Soils Cove), Ship Island/Cove, Burnt Cove (Burn Cove), Tors Cove (Toads Cove), Mobile, Witless Bay, Bay Bulls, and other areas along the road to St. John's, with occasional entries for people from other parishes.

Ferryland District CE Baptism Records

pre 1814 Although it is known that Church of England clergy were resident at Ferryland as early as 1792, it doesn't appear that their records have survived. However, there are some baptisms that were recorded at St. John's, for Ferryland District children, but they have not been transcribed at this time.
1814 - 1921 The transcribed records below were originally extracted from the Petty Harbour Church of England baptism records. They have recently been updated from information contained on microfilm of the Latter Day Saints. Regardless, most of records originated at Ferryland, since they were recorded by several Anglican ministers known to be resident there.

Fermeuse/Renews RC Baptism Records (Holy Apostles Parish)

Ferryland, Caplin Bay (Calvert), Cape Broyle, and Brigus South. The records for these
"strays" from Ferryland Parish occur mainly between the dates of 1857-1870, but
the priests did not record where the baptisms were actually performed.

Bay Bulls/Witless Bay RC Parish Baptism Records

pre 1831 This area was part of St. John's (Basilica) Parish until late 1831, and as such, earlier baptisms were recorded in the register of that parish. It appears that even after Bay Bulls Parish (aka Witless Bay Parish) was established, quite a few baptisms were still recorded at St. John's. These baptisms have not been transcribed to date, except for two pages of late 1830 baptisms that were retained with the original Bay Bulls/Witless Bay registers.
1830 -1880 Transcribed records below are mainly for the settlements north of Brigus South, i.e. Lamanche (La Monche, etc.), Bauline (Baleen) St. Michael's (Caplin Cove), Seals Cove (Soils Cove) Burnt Cove (Burn Cove), Tors Cove (Toads Cove), Mobile, Witless Bay, Bay Bulls, and other areas along the road to St. John's, with occasional entries for people from other parishes.

DEATH RECORDS

Ferryland District (Southern Shore) Death Records

There were no early death records kept by Ferryland District RC parishes. There were
some kept by the Church of England ministers, and by some laymen who filled in
when the minister was unavailable. However, they appear to be incomplete.
