    Notes 
    • Family lore states that Elizabeth (Betsy) Bryan, from Ferryland was the wife of Robert Swain. Although there were several Bryan (O' Brien) families in Ferryland in 1800, there are no matches with any females recorded in that census. However, there was one later event that may suggest some kinship with the Bryans (O'Briens) of Ferryland. One of the co-defendants, named in the civil suit against Robert Swain and "others" in 1830, was a Timothy Brien.

      We can speculate that this may have been the Timothy Jr. who was recorded under his Irish name "Teague" at Ferryland in the 1800 Census. He married at St. John's in 1827, however the marriage record states he was from Ferryland. His reason for being at Stone Island in 1830 is not known, but his presence there raises the possibility that he may have been fishing with (his "brother-in-law?), Robert Swain. From 1840 onward, the Voters Lists shows Timothy Bryan living on the north side of Ferryland in the area(s) known as Freshwater and Bark House.
