Shea – Holy Trinity, Torbay 1846 – 1904

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. William Shea says:

    Hi

    You list Edward Shea married Hannah Crow in Jan 1894. This is not correct. He married my grandmother Alice Crow(e).

    Would love to know her date of birth.

    Thanks

    Bill Shea

  2. Gayle Ray says:

    I’m not even sure if you can help, but I am trying to do research about my Family, My Grandmother was the Daughter of John Murrin and Margaret Elizabeth Shea, my Grandmother Ann Maude Murrin (Hahn is her Married name). Is there anything that you can tell me about her Mother, Father, Siblings or Ancestors. I would so appreciate your help. Thank you. Sincerely, Gayle N. Ray
