Note: Records for St. Paul's Anglican Parish, Trinity, show the burial of Eliz Rex, aged 14 years, daughter of the late John and Elis Rex, now Bloomfield of Ship Cove. However, Elizabeth, daughter of John and Elizabeth, was born about 1804 and baptized in 1805. The burial should have been Catherine, who was baptized in 1801 and would have been 14 years old in 1815. Elizabeth, daughter of John and Elizabeth, grew to adulthood and married.
      When her husband died in 1809, Elizabeth [Bailey] Ricks was left with a large family of seven children, with the oldest, Ann, being 16 and the youngest, John, about six months. On 02 October 1813 Elizabeth married James Bloomfield of Salmon Cove, with witnesses William Cook and James King.
