Family History: The Byrne surname did not survive at Caplin Bay beyond 1852. There is no record of this surname at Caplin Bay in Lovell's 1871 Directory. Although the surname reappears again at Brigus South in the late 1800s, members of that family do not appear to be related to the earlier Caplin Bay family. It is not known if there were any females in this family that could have married into other Caplin Bay families.
