Trinity, NL ca. 1840
Newfoundland and Labrador's permanent population rapidly expanded during the first half of the 19th century, largely due to an influx of English, Irish, and Scottish immigrants. Most settled in or near mercantile centres at Trinity, St. John's, Ferryland, Conception Bay, Notre Dame Bay, Bonavista Bay, St. Lawrence, Harbour Breton, Bonne Bay, Forteau, and Battle Harbour.
