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.
