Meanwhile, documents affirm[citation needed] that the first family at Salvage was that of William Dick (Dyke) of Bonavista and Mary Handcock (Hancock) of Kings Cove. Dyke had been fishing at Salvage by 1804 and moved his wife and family there by 1813. William was probably accompanied by his older brother Henry. About the same time came also from Bonavista, Richard Dyke and his wife Susan/Hannah Abbot and John Dyke and his wife Elizabeth. The Dykes were soon joined by the Oldford family of Bonavista or nearby Bird Island Cove (modern Elliston). By the early 1820s the Dyke, Oldford, Brown, Hunter and Burden families were all settled in Salvage as "planters", meaning owners of fishing rooms, fishing boats and employing servants and share men.
