This update mainly corrects unprintable characters which do not display in Family Tree Maker, but which display as a small square in TNG. I may have missed correcting some of them.

Update: September 28 2021
I have continued my research as further original material becomes available online (such as Newfoundland Will and Estate Files in FamilySearch; Newfoundland Voters Lists, Newfoundland Court Records, and Newfoundland Miscellaneous Deeds and Wills in Family History Society of Newfoundland and Labrador; and Digital Archives Initiative, particularly for newspapers, at Memorial University of Newfoundland). Of these, only the Family History Society of Newfoundland and Labrador requires a fee to access their material, and their annual fee is very reasonable (especially as they continue to add material to their collection).
Update: March 7 2021
I have now added considerable Pike genealogy in an unsuccessful attempt to identify my Pike ancestors before William Pike, husband of Eliza Ann McLean. This includes many Pike’s in Poole and Carbonear. As I am unable to connect many of these Pike’s to their parents and/or siblings, there are many “islands” of Pike’s.
I’ve generally tried to include all known Carbonear Pike families who married prior to 1830, and some of those after 1830.
I have included sources for all facts/events, and notes explaining my research, analysis, and conclusions. I use the terms “reasonable to conclude”, “reasonable to believe”, and “reasonable to assume” to distinguish my degree of conviction (from strongest to weakest).
I could not have made as much progress without the wealth of material in David Pike’s Family History and Genealogy Resources website.
