Originally called Bread and Cheese Cove, it was renamed Bishop's Cove after the Rev. John Inglis, an Anglican bishop who toured Newfoundland in 1827 after it became part of his diocese[1].

It's unclear (from online sources) when the name change was, but the last mention of Bread and Cheese Cove was in a will, dated 1901[2].

Early Families

Early family names in the area include "Smith", "Barrett" and several variations of "Menchions", with possible claims to the land going back as early as 1625.
