BirthThomas Ellis was born in 1804 in England.
MarriageThomas Ellis married Charlotte Andrews about 1823 in Trinity, Newfoundland. Thomas Ellis was, age ~19, Charlotte Andrews was, age ~18. Thomas and Charlotte were married around 1823, either by the Methodist preacher in Scilly Cove or by the Anglican minister in Trinity. The Scilly Cove Methodist records list Charlotte and Thomas Ellis as members of the local church in 1824. Other members at that time included Hester, Aaron and Amy Andrews. Perhaps Amy was Aaron’s wife.

An entry in the baptism records of the Anglican church in Trinity indicates that Charlotte and Thomas still retained Anglican ties even after joining the Scilly Cove Methodists. John Ellis, son of Thomas and Charlotte Ellis, was baptized by the Anglican priest on August 28, 1825. John’s birthday was August 1st.

Thomas and Charlotte remained at Scilly Cove for only a few years after their marriage. In 1826, Thomas and John sailed along the coast in search of a new home. They briefly considered settling in New Perlican, but finally decided on a tiny inlet, called Caplin Cove, near Hant’s Harbour. While Hant’s Harbour boasted a population of 200, only a few families lived at Caplin Cove. John and Thomas chose to build their homes close to each other, and near the sea.

York Ellis, one of Thomas and Charlotte’s many great-grandchildren, lived in Caplin Cove and Hant’s Harbour for most of his life. During one of my visits to the area, he took me to an area a few hundred feet from the site of Thomas’ house where one of Thomas and Charlotte’s children was buried. There was no cemetery, and the marker had not survived the years.

Other Life Events

NoteThomas Ellis. Around the year 1820, two teenagers, perhaps from a small community in southern England, set foot on Newfoundland soil. They were John and Thomas Ellis, respectively born in 1802 and 1804. Whether, they had intended or not, they would never again see their parents, their remaining brothers or sisters, or any of their relatives and friends. Home would now be called Newfoundland. The community in which they settled was called Scilly Cove (since renamed Winterton), in Trinity Bay.
Scilly Cove was named after the Scilly Isles, off the coast of England. It is difficult to know when this community was first inhabited. The earliest record of residents is a census taken in 1677, and gives the following information:
housekeepers wives sons daughters servants
Old Perlican 13 9 9 8 167
Scilly Cove 3 2 5 3 33
New Perlican 2 1 1 - 11

Another census, taken a few years later in 1697, records the following:
men fishing establishments boats
Old Perlican 130 19 27
Bay de Verde 85 14 16
Hant's Harbour 30 4 5
Scilly Cove 40 4 7
New Perlican 60 9 11
Heart's Ease 12 1 2
Heart's Content 20 4 4

These accounts are the first early references to these communities. Since the first settlement in Newfoundland began at Cupids in the 1600's, it is evident that these outports, by historical standards, were still very much in their infancy.
We are fortunate to have on record an early description of life at that time. Rev. James Balfour, an Anglican minister posted in Trinity in the 1700's, made several trips to nearby settlements to perform baptisms, marriages and burials. His comments on the community of Scilly Cove, written in 1772 are worth quoting verbatim.
"Scilly Cove is 12 leagues southwest from Trinity. It is a most barbarous lawless place. Here it is their usual custom to divert themselves during Sundays with the music of a piper carried in parade through the place. All my attempts could not bring them together for public worship. It would make any well-disposed person shiver to hear their horrid conversation of profane cursing and swearing. Here are sixteen wretched families".
Rev. Balfour was perhaps unnecessarily harsh in his assessment of a community in its infancy. Rev. Clinch, Balfour's replacement, noted that a "neat small church was built in Scilly cove in 1793". A Methodist church soon followed. Rev. N. A. Coster, a Church of England minister, wrote that "At Scilly Cove, a regular day school has been taught since 1777 by John Thomas. But is aging and in need of repair." Presumably, Coster was referring to the school and not the teacher!
