|Name||Description of Error||My Name
||Appleton is an error or possibly it has evolved into Applin. Applin is common in the Strait of Belle Isle.
||Hoseworthy, I'm sure should be Noseworthy.
||Mare has evolved into Mahar, or it was misspelled.
||Rimbald has evolved into Rumboldt.
||Stapleton--I'm wondering if there is some confusion with Appleton, which has become Applin.
||John Wells intrigues me because I am unable to find a birth record for my great-great-grandfather John Way but I have found many connections to the Wells line and I found a record in Trinity Bay where the Way's supposedly came from of an illegitimate John Way/Wells born to Elizabeth Wells and father reported to be John Way.
