Notes

1/ Patrick Kavanagh settled in Caplin Bay about 1841 but it is not known if he was the Patrick Kavanagh listed at Ferryland in the 1800 Census (8 yrs. old - son of James and Fanny Kavanagh).

2/ The (O') Keefe family from Co. Waterford (via Ferryland) were at Caplin Bay before 1838 and the name survived there until 1884.

3/ Edward Keough, from Co. Wexford, Ireland settled at Stone Island, Caplin Bay and started a family there in the early 1830s. He had come to Newfoundland about 1816, but it is not known where he lived before he settled at Stone Island.

4/ The Kielley surname appeared briefly at Caplin Bay in the early 1840s, but it is unknown how long the surname was present there prior to 1840.

5/ Sebastian Ledwell, from Little Placentia (now called Argentia), married and settled at Caplin Bay in 1886.

6/ Although James Locke, from England, lived at Caplin Bay for about fifty years, his name seldom appeared in any of the records. James was never listed in the voter's lists or Lovell's 1871 Directory. It appears he was a man servant of Matthew Morry (III) and, later on, Robert Morry (Matthew's son). However he applied for, and was given two Crown Land grants, one in 1851 and another in 1869.

7/ Edward MacNamara appears in the voter's list for Caplin Bay from 1840 to 1859, but the surname was gone by 1871. It is not known how long before 1840 the McNamaras lived at Caplin Bay, but a Mary McNamara, who was married to Michael Rossiter of Caplin Bay, was born about 1822.

8/ The Madden surname appeared briefly at Caplin Bay in the 1840s. A newspaper obituary states that Elizabeth Madden, widow of John Madden of Caplin Bay, died at St. John's in 1863, aged 82 years. Court records indicate this John Madden may have lived at Ferryland in the second decade of the 1800s.

9/ Thomas Maher, from Conception Bay, married and settled at Caplin Bay in the 1850s. His sons, James and John, left Caplin Bay in the late 1890s/early 1900s.

10/ John McBride, from Ireland?, married and settled at Caplin Bay in 1874.

11/ Philip McDaniel, of Co. Wexford, Ireland, was not listed at Caplin Bay as part of a resident family in the Census of 1800, however he was working there at that time. He died at Caplin Bay in 1811.

12/ James Meaney, likely from Ferryland, married and settled at Stone Island, Caplin Bay, about 1839.

13/ Matthew Morry (the first) of Dartmouth, Devon, England started coming to Caplin Bay before the 1780s, but his stay was usually seasonal. However, about 1811, Matthew Morry (the second) married Anne Saunders from Ferryland and settled and raised his family at Caplin Bay. Although the Morry family name survived at Caplin Bay until 1930, most of their business interests (and the surname) became more closely associated with Ferryland after the mid nineteenth century.

14/ Edward Murphy, from Ferryland, married and settled at Caplin Bay in the late 1860s.
