Family History: The Delahunty surname (sometimes pronounced locally as Dullanty in the 1950s/1960s) came to Caplin Bay with the marriage of Richard Delahunty of Ferryland to Maggie Power of Caplin Bay in 1903. The Delahuntys have almost exclusively been associated with Ferryland, although the Ferryland Census of 1800 shows two large family groups named Dullanty, one at Ferryland and one at Brigus South.
Present Status: This surname has all but disappeared from Ferryland District, except for one granddaughter of Richard Delahunty who still lives at Calvert. Others members of the family live in other parts of Newfoundland and Canada, and the U.S.A.
