Protestants of Isle Madame

The following is a list of Protestants in Isle Madame from January, 1852 transcribed by Stirling Edwards in September, 2004 from the records of St. John’s Anglican Church in Arichat.

This list is among the papers of the Rev. James Allen Shaw, the first Rector of St. John’s. It is dated about the time of his retirement in 1851. It is equivalent to a full nominal census of all non-Catholics on Isle Madame, almost 20 years before the first official nominal census in 1871. In most cases, it also gives the maiden names of the wives. The names are obviously arranged by families.

A few final surnames appear to have been added to the list later. The obvious ones are shown in italics. These additions seem to be the names of future husbands.
