Notes to accompany transcription:
Reverend Alfred Charles James Warren was born in May 1848 on the Southside of St. John's, the son of George Warren and Sarah Ann Coyell. The Warren and Coyell families hailed from Devon, England. He was married to Henrietta M Oliver in Sydney, Cape Breton in June 1875.

Henrietta and Alfred Charles had five daughters and one son between 1878 and August 1888. On a Thursday night in November 1882, a serious fire occurred at Upper Island Cove, resulting in the total destruction of the Parsonage House, when Reverend WARREN was in Harbor Grace. His wife discovered the calamity only just in time to escape from the burning building with her three children, snatched from their beds in their night clothes. The eldest child Isabel Theresa Warren died shortly afterwards from a chill, caught on that awful night. A son born in 1884 also died as a young child.

Reverend Warren died from smallpox which he contracted when he was taking care of a parishioner afflicted with the same disease.
