These records are from Parish Record #109, Greenspond, Methodist Parish maintained by the Provincial Archives in St. John's, Newfoundland.

I am the typist, the real research was done by Ernest and Helen Reid of Burlington, Ontario (Origins in Heart's Content) in 1981

They spent a number of years travelling across Canada visiting their extended family members and spreading their genealogical information (like Johnny Appleseed in the old Disney cartoon). It was a copy of one of their papers, left with my Aunt in Vancouver, that inspired me to look up my family in Newfoundland in 1997. The wealth of information that followed has still not stopped. I felt sure that getting these records out to the widest possible distribution would be a way of carrying on their legacy. It is also a very small way of giving something back after receiving so much from so many wonderful people. I hope that Ernest and Helen would be pleased that I spread their seeds a little further.
