Notes

1/ Richard Delahunty, from Ferryland, married and settled at Caplin Bay in 1903.

2/ The Dempsey surname was only present at Caplin Bay throughout the 1870s and early 1880s. It is not known what became of this family after they left Caplin Bay.

3/ Patrick Evoy was the step-son of James Walsh and it appears he moved to Caplin Bay from Ferryland about the same time as the Walshs, likely about 1805.

4/ Although one of the earlier families to settle at Caplin Bay, very little is known of the Foley family. Some of the family are known to have moved to the USA.

5/ The Gatheralls of Caplin Bay appear to have been a branch of the Bay Bulls/Bauline East Gatherall family.

6/ Richard Gorman lived at Caplin Bay in the 1830s and early 1840s, possibly after his retirement. It is assumed that he was the Richard Gorman who was the Clerk of the Peace at Ferryland for many years.

7/ The Gregorys were an early family at Caplin Bay. The name disappeared in the 1830s but then reappeared again in the mid 1840s. The surname survived at Caplin Bay until the 1880s but disappeared again with the death of James Gregory.

8/ Thomas Hayden, from Ireland, settled in Caplin Bay about 1851.

9/ In 1814, James Hayley sold property at Caplin Bay to William Sweetland. The surname did not reappear at Caplin Bay again until the 1840s when Edward Healy moved from Ferryland to Caplin Bay. After Edward's death, his son Jeffrey lived at Caplin Bay but later moved to St. John's, probably in the 1880s.

10/ The Hearnes were one of several families to settle at Caplin Bay prior to 1800. The surname died out at Caplin Bay in the 1870s or 1880s.

11/ David Houlahan was not counted as part of a resident family at Caplin Bay in the Ferryland District Census of 1800. However, David is listed as working there, and he lived there for over sixty years afterwards.

12/ The Howley surname appears at Caplin Bay in the 1830s and early 1840s but it is not known how long they may have lived there prior to that time.

13/ The Johnstons were at Caplin Bay since at least the second decade of the 1800s. The Ferryland Johnstons (descendants of James, the blacksmith) originated from this Caplin Bay family.
