Transcriber's notes on the census|
It looks as if fishing boat capacity was measured in quintals, not in tons. The writing is definitely qtls. There are problems with the number of members of religious denominations exceeding the number of inhabitants (i.e. at Indian Burying Place). The following notes are based on checking the census transcription against the entries for the various communities in the Encyclopedia of Newfoundland and Labrador (ENL), and surname entries in Family Names of the Island of Newfoundland by E. R. Seary (FN). They are supplemented, in the section on Fortune Harbour, by notes from John Carrick Greene`s Of Fish and Family. These extracts illustrate the difficulties created by surname variations. Thanks are due to Dave Anstey and Jill Marshall for their transcriptions, which were helpful in deciphering some of the trickier entries.
A "John Wilshman or Welshman" is recorded at Shoe Cove in 1843.
A Richard Newbery (not Newbury) is recorded at Shoe Cove in 1846.
There is no record of William Newbury.
Giles Budgel of Shoe Cove was recorded in 1854. No Elias Budgel is recorded at Shoe Cove, but a man of that name is mentioned at Burton's Pond (Green Bay) in 1871.
There is no record of Robert Thoms, William Crump (or indeed the surname Crump), or John Bound (or the surname Bound). A Jacob Thomas or Thombs, of Shoe Cove, is recorded in 1842 and 1850, and a James Toms is recorded there in 1851.

With regard to the Chipp possibility, the FN notes a Solomon Chipp settled at Shoe Cove in 1847. I have left the surname as Crump.
