1911 Census of Newfoundland - St. John's East

Most of the 1911 census is (still) missing. However, records from St. John's East were discovered in 1991 when the Anglican Cathedral Rectory was undergoing some renovations. The census booklets were found within some walls, apparently having been used as a form of insulation.

The documents are now in the custody of the Centre for Newfoundland Studies, where they can be found on microfilm reel number 584. Some of the records are next to impossible to read (due to damage sustained by the records).

Below is my transcription of the Pike entries, made on 22 June 2007. Most entries were lacking details of birthdate and place, despite the fact that there were spaces for this information to be written onto the census forms.

Regarding format, I've listed each entry beginning with the Ward number, the Dwelling number, and the Household number, and any other information about the specific location of the household.

If you came to this page directly, then you might want to know that I have additional information about the Pike families of Newfoundland on my website.
