The following exerpt was obtained from the attached site, it shows that James Williams was the first settler to Currant Island;http://nl.canadagenweb.org/npstbn_settlers.htm
The first settler on Current Island was William Toope, followed shortly after by James Williams and his brother William
; then John Gibbons, a sturdy Englishman of most sterling and capable qualities. As an illustration of their mettle, the eldest son, John, went to Hamilton, Ontario, about 1900. He could neither read nor write, but secured work as a common hand in the Hamilton Steel Works. In about ten years after entering the mill he had attained the highest post, and became the manager with a secretary to do his writing. He retained this position until his death. The first settler on Forrester’s Point was Bill Williams, a desperate character, one of the brothers mentioned above.
He married a full-blooded Esquimaux, and many are the stories told of the vicissitudes of this union. On one occasion, Bill decided to get rid of his wife Hannah. He took her out in a boat, and was putting her overboard to drown her when another boat came to rescue her. The occupants of the other boat, before interfering to save Hannah, called out, “What are you doing with your wife, Bill?” “Be gobs, Jack, I’m going to get rid of her, boy. She’s got me drove crazy.” “But who’s going to cook for you, and mend your socks and wash your clothes?” “Be gobs, Jack. I did not think of that,” said Bill, and forthwith pulled her into the boat again. Both the old Williams had died before I went to the Straits in 1903. Old Hannah still survived and was regarded by the next generation with a certain amount of awe. Uncanny powers of witchcraft were attributed to her, and the younger folk dared not incur her displeasure.
Good Luck, Hope this helps.
