Family History: MacNamara is another surname that disappeared from Caplin Bay in the 1860s. It is not found in any of the later documents in the Ferryland area. It is not known if the Mary McNamara, who was married to Michael Rossiter, was from Caplin Bay. Michael Rossiter, was born there about 1809 and is listed in the Caplin Bay Voter's Lists up to 1859, but he appears to have moved to the Fermeuse/Renews area after that date. When his wife, Mary, died at Fermeuse in 1900, her Vital Statistic death record states she was born at Fermeuse. However, there are no records indicating that a McNamara family was ever associated with that settlement.
