Trinity is one of the earliest communities in Newfoundland to be settled by Europeans, with most settlers having emigrated from the South of England. In the 1500’s, there was a migratory fishery underway and in 1615, Sir Richard Whitbourne held the first Court of Admiralty in Trinity. Trinity Harbour was described in the 1689 English Pilot as “the best and largest harbour in all the land”.
