Typewritten page as follows:

Entry in Trinity Anglican Parish Church Register reads:
Novr 10th  Interred the Revd John Clinch (Missionary) of this Harbour - Aged 71 years.

Inscription on tombstone in cemetery reads:
"…..The Revd John Clinch, who died the 22nd of November 1819, aged 72 years."

Inscription on mural tablet in cemetery chapel reads:
"As a tribute of filial duty and affection
This tablet is erected to the memory of
The Revd John Clinch
Who, during 36 years, faithfully discharged
The duties of this Mission
He died the 22nd of November, 1819, aged 72 years

The Trinity Enterprise issue of Sept. 27th, 1913, "Truthful Mac" in his column 
'Past and Present' quotes an entry in a diary which reads:
"November 23, 1819, Mr. Clinch departed this life about 11 o'clock
 last night - peace to his manes".

Slade & Kelson's diary reads:
"Tuesday 23rd Nov. 1819, Wind north east, Mr. Clinch departed this 
life last evening almost suddenly."

Entry in Slade & Kelson's diary reads:
"Friday 26th November 1819, Wind north  heavy weather.  
Mr Clinch was buried this day."

There does not appear to be any way to account for the obviously 
incorrect date, Nov. 10th, 1819" in the church register.

* See the following errata

CLARK *1 Although the original document clearly shows "Interred a daughter of Robert and Vine Clark's Jun'r of Cuckhold's Cove aged 6 years", this seems to be in error. The "Jun'r" after the "Clark's" would seem to denote that the child belonged to Robert Jr whose wife, Eleanor, did give birth to a daughter Mary on 19th of June, 1813, and according to family records, this child died at the age of 6 in 1819. Further, family records show that in 1813 when this child would have been born, Robert Sr, who was Vine's husband was 97 years of age and the youngest child belonging to this couple seems to have been Richard, born in 1785. Thus it seems highly likely that the entry should read: Interred a daughter of Robert Jun'r and Eleanor Clark of Cuckhold's Cove aged 6 years. Faith Capnerhurst
