About Witless Bay

Folklore states that one of the original European inhabitants of the area was a Captain Whittle and his family from Dorsetshire, England. The area was originally named after them, Whittle's Bay. Upon the death of Captain Whittle, his widow and her children decided to return to England. Hence, the remaining settlers referred to Whittle's Bay as Whittle less Bay and eventually, Witless Bay. The first settlers were migratory West Country fishermen from England. In the latter part of the 1700s, large numbers of Irish began settling in the area.
