I wonder how the year of immigration on the Immigrants List: was ascertained. In my ancestor's case, the source of his year of arrival (1805) is "Carbonear Methodist Church." What type of record or source might the Church have had to supply the date of arrival?

Just a guess but my thought would be when they joined the church which would have been almost immediately when settling in an area. Almost 100% were church goers back then.
