Transcriber notes:
1 McLeod as attested herein may be a traditional NL-NS Mi'kmaw family name; cf. George McCloud [1/2 Micmac (Neary, PANL)] who knew the whereabouts of Red Indian survivors in Labrador [1914] whom he had met there. Speck (1922:69) elaborates more on this said George McCloud: "From the Micmac of Newfoundland I even heard of another man, George McCloud, whom noone could locate at the time. He was said to have knowledge of not only the Red Indian language, but also where descendants could still be found in Labrador". Sources: 1.) Near R. Collection, Micmac Indian Material, PANL, MG 938; 2.) Speck, Frank Goldsmith. 1922. Beothuk and Micmac. Indian Notes and Monographs. New York, Heye Foundation: Museum of the American Indian.

2. Bown/Bowen (s) as attested herein may also be a traditional NL-NS Mc family name; cf. Mc patronym Bones/Bonis/Bounis referenced in the Commissioner of Public Records series (NSARM) and the Saint-Pierre et Miquelon parish registers. Note an account by Henry Watkins for stocking a gun to [Paul] Bones, a Mi'kmaq, of Nova Scotia dated 1803 [Reference #: Commissioner of Public Records-Indian Series RG 1 vol. 430, no. 132].
