Shea – Basilica of St John the Baptist 1793 – 1870

These records for the surname Shea were generously donated by Sharon Lewison. The information was taken from the holdings of the Provincial Archives of Newfoundland and Labrador (PANL) at The Rooms in St John’s.

Please be aware that the original records were hand written up to two hundred years ago – long before pen and paper as we know them were invented. Just as well too, these old materials were made to last – what we use today were not. The transcriber worked from photocopies of the original register pages.

These are all factors that contribute to possible errors. The study of archaic handwriting is a science in itself; the spelling of names, especially surnames has evolved over time.

Bearing all that in mind, this material, freely offered, is a wonderful resource. We hope you find something useful here.

  1. Theresa Doyle says:

    I recently found an article that states that Patrick Magher ( Mahar or Maher ) of Labrador was married at St. John’s 1814. If you have any record on this would appreciate a response.
    He may be an ancestor of mine.

    Appreciate your time
