Finding Ancestors on Ships Passenger Lists to Newfoundland
Sir Francis Bacon and his associates formed the Newfoundland Colonization
Company and in 1610 sent John Guy to found a colony in Newfoundland. He
settled with 41 colonists at Cupids (then Cuper's Cove) in Conception
Bay and in 1613 the first white child was born in Newfoundland .
The first permanent settlement grew up in the neighbourhood of St. John's,
from Petty Harbour around Cape St. Francis to Holyrood in Conception Bay.
St. John's was the chief port.
