Freshwater (Conception Bay) Methodist Baptisms

What follows is a list of all Pike baptisms in the Freshwater (Conception Bay) Methodist records held at PANL as of April 2005. This list constitutes a typescript of my handwritten extraction from photocopies of the original records, which is to say that I may have inadvertantly introduced some errors while transcribing and typing... as always, you should double-check against the original records. That said, if you spot any mistakes that I have made, please let me know at dapike@mun.ca. Additional Pike entries from other Newfoundland church records can also be found on my website.

Some comments about this list:

At PANL these records are in a single volume as follows:

Some notes about these records:

In between entries 1904 and 1905 (both of which are Pike entries) "(Mac)" had been written in the original register, along with initials "WRB" (which I assume are for a minister making an annotation). Incidentally, in the Mt Pleasant Cemetery in St. John's, there is a headstone for a "Mark (Mac) Pike, 1912-1989" ... this stone is also for "Ada (Nan) 1918-2003". Given also the last of the baptisms listed below is for a child of "Mark Reuben and Ada Pike", it seems likely that it is entry 1905 (for a Mark Reuben Pike born in 1912) that the "Mac" was meant to apply to. This conclusion is further supported by the obituary for Mark (Mac) Pike, which I have placed on my page for Pike obituaries.

At the very end of the volume is a copy of the first page of a letter as follows:
