West Coast Region ~ Bay St. George District
St. George's Bay - Thomas White 'Census' 1808Here is a "census" of sorts, taken by Thomas White in 1808 when the H.M.sloop "Avenger" visited Western Newfoundland. St. George's Bay had 102 inhabitants. The material was taken from Beales, Annette. "The Formation of Settlement, Demographic Growth, and Economic Diversification in Birchy Cove, 1863-1921". (4 November 1992), an honours essay for her B.A. (Honours) in the Dept of Geography at MUN.
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.
