Humber River - Thomas White 'Census' 1808

Here is a "census" of sorts, taken by Thomas White in 1808 when the H.M.sloop "Avenger" visited Western Newfoundland.

The information was transcribed by MICHAEL BARBOUR, August 1999. While I have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there could be some typographical errors.
