As a result of a visit to Provincial Archives March 17, 2016, I found the following in the Voters Lists for Bay Roberts;


1855 and 1858 VOTERS LISTS only show James Woods. (Note: James Wood of Bay Roberts died in 1861 age 63 which explains why he doesn't show up on successful voters lists.)

1874, 1878, 1882 years VOTERS LISTS show the following;
William Woods
Philip Woods
Simon Woods
Charles Woods

1878 and 1882 VOTERS LISTS show the above plus Robert of William Woods.


Then the following shows that Woods change to Hood;
There is another Voters List without a date, but wrote in ink 1889 or 1885 ? that show the following;

William Hood age 58 of James lives at Beachy Cove
Philip Hood age 55 of James Lives at Beachy Cove Fisherman
Simon Hood age 55 of James lives at Spaniards Bay Pond Fisherman
Thomas Hood age 25 of William lives at Beachy Cove Captain of Banker
Robert Hood age 31 of William lives at Beachy Cove Fisherman
Charles Hood age 28 of Philip lives at Beachy Cove Fisherman

Is there anyone who can clarify or explain this change?

If Thomas Hood was a Captain of a Banker then there should be a record somewhere.
