Occam’s Razor is a scientific or philosophical principle which states that, other things being equal, the simplest explanation is most likely the correct one. Despite the many variations in human behavior, this proposition can effectively be used as a starting-place in constructing families for which there is absent or conflicting evidence. An example is the Warren family of Fox Island, Newfoundland, who lived in a small, isolated community for many years.
Tiny Fox Island is found just off the south coast of Newfoundland between White Bear Bay and Bay de Vieux, about 3 miles north-north-east of the eastern-most island of the Ramea group; the nearest larger mainland communities are Burgeo and Little River (now Grey River). Fishermen and their families settled on Fox Island possibly as early as 1818, and their descendants stayed as long as the fishing was good. At no time was this a large community (the peak recorded population was 134 in 1911), but both a school and church were built there between 1877 and 1884. Officially renamed Bonald’s Island sometime between 1945 and 1956, the island has been abandoned since 1956.
The Warren family project began as an apparently unrelated collection of evidence, found in the Burgeo and Ramea parish records; three Newfoundland directories, two diaries, the 1921 and 1935 Newfoundland censuses for the Burgeo and La Poile District, and the civil vital records of Newfoundland. This collection of data was presented to a seminar on evidence and analysis as an exercise in logic. The assignment was to create a genealogical solution (one or more families) which incorporated all of the data in the collection.
The evidence is sparse for the first years of residence in the area, partly because Rev. Blackmore, the first permanent cleric in the area, didn’t arrive in Burgeo until 1842. The family structure presented here is not the only one which could be constructed from the evidence, particularly in the third generation; there is not enough available evidence to conclusively define the whole family. However, using the principle of Occam’s Razor, this is a logical family construction and a good point of beginning.
There are 49 individuals in the first three generations of this family, 26 of whom declare their parents by name either in their baptism record or in their marriage record. The remaining 23 have no indication in the records of who their parents might be. We can single out reasons for one father to be assigned to 16 of these. The remaining 7 are arbitrarily assigned and provide the leaven to this loaf!
It may be helpful to refer to the chart of child-bearing years, below, for the Warren family members discussed herein. The dashed lines indicate the approximate years during which a child may be attributed to him or her running from the marriage year to the death of the individual, spouse, or the wife reaching age 44.

Proposed Descendants of Edward1 Warren
1. Edward1 Warren was born about 1788. He died between 1849/1852 in Fox Island.
Among the earliest parish records are some Warren marriages in the Burgeo parish, which includes Fox Island: three marriages in 1844, one in July and two in September. The two September weddings (on the same day) were witnessed by Edward1 Warren. He was not a witness at the July wedding, perhaps because he was away fishing at that time. There are two further Warren weddings in 1849, both on the same day in September of that year, one witnessed by Edward1 Warren and the other by William2 Warren. Both of these weddings take place at the “house of Edward Warren at Fox Island.” Edward1 does not appear on any record after this 1849 wedding and so he may have died soon thereafter. Except for that, he probably would have appeared as a witness at the September wedding of Grace2 Warren in 1852. In addition, there is a wedding in 1858 and two in 1862. The last two are both for men named Edward Warren.
Edward1 Warren could be 1) one individual or 2) two individuals. Of these two possibilities, one individual is certainly simpler. He could be 1) related by blood or 2) not related by blood to other Warrens. Of these two, a blood relationship is far more likely. He could have 1) the same relationship or 2) different relationships to the marriage individuals. It is most probable that he has the same relationship to all since they (the brides and grooms) are of the same generation. If only one relationship exists, he could be 1) father or uncle (i.e. one generation older) or 2) sibling or cousin (i.e. the same generation). Of these, the simplest is that he is their father and they are all of one family.
The possibility of more than one wife for Edward1 is raised at this point only because there is one fairly wide gap (1813-1819) in the estimated birth years for these eight children indicating the possibility of the death of an earlier spouse and replacement by another. Neither of these women are named anywhere to answer this question. It is also possible that one or more children born in this interim period either died, married, and/or moved at some point and so don’t appear in the later church records. Another argument is that the estimated ages for the children (and therefore birth years) are inaccurate and spread in a different fashion so that there really isn’t any gap at all. It is probably simpler to assume one mother for all of these children with some children lost at young ages (creating the apparent gap).
Trying to construct this family using two early male parents (i.e. Edward1 and one other) produces many more complications. If there were two Warren men living at Fox Island early on, the second individual is never mentioned in any record. Since one parent can account for all of the known second generation Warren family members without difficulty it seems simplest to propose one male Warren parent, not two.
Two pieces of evidence support the contention for one male Warren parent. The first is a statistical summary for the 1836 census of Fox Island. [This piece of evidence was not included in this article. This summary shows 4 dwellings (families?), 2 males under age 14, 5 males between 14 and 60, one male over 60, 2 females under 14, 3 females between 14 and 60, and one male servant (is the male servant in addition to all of the other males?). This population could be composed of Edward Warren (married), age 48, William Warren (married), age 23, John Warren age abt 17, Bavillam Warren, age 12, Henry Warren, age abt 12, Thomas Warren, age abt 3, Elizabeth Warren, age abt 14, Grace Warren, age abt 6, Edward’s wife, age about 46?, William’s wife Grace, age 21?, Benjamin Hayman (married), age 32?, and Mary Hayman (his wife), aged 30?, Susan Hayman, age 9, Mary Hayman, age 7, and Elizabeth Hayman, age 4. The older man could be the single male servant. The last three girls are proposed because they appear in the marriage records for Burgeo (residence Fox Island) in 1849 and 1850. There are three too many people here but if Henry Warren was born a bit earlier than supposed, then he could be the fifth male between 14-60. That would then give us two males under 14. There are five females under 14 proposed for this group (instead of three) including the three Hayman girls but one can’t have everything! It is true that both William Warren and Benjamin Hayman were said to be present in Fox Island in 1831 (why Edward Warren was not mentioned is not clear).]
The second bit of supporting evidence to this conclusion comes from comments made by Rev. Blackmore in his diary. He lists statistical results of an 1845 census of the district of Fortune Bay extending from Bonne Bay to Cape Ray. In this listing, he notes that there are only 13 families living in Fox Island, with 40 children and 63 individuals. The families who are likely present at Fox Island in 1845 include William2 and Ann (Thornhill) Warren, John2 and Frances (Bonnell) Warren, Benjamin and Mary Hayman, James and Elizabeth Young, William and Mary Kettle, Kish and Esther Cains, John and Elizabeth (Warren) Osmond, James Bunter and wife, the parents of Ann Thornhill, and the parents of Frances Bonnell, ten couples, plus Edward1 Warren (assuming he is a widower by this time), Thomas Lushman, and Edward Trick, three possible singles.
From this evidence, Edward1 must have been born about 1788 (based on the birth year for his eldest proposed child) and died about 1849-52. If his wife was born about 1792 her fertile years could cover the years 1813 through 1836 (age 44).
Edward1 and his wife had the following children:
+ 2 i. William2 Warren was born about 1813.
+ 3 ii. John2 Warren was born about 1819.
4 iii. Elizabeth2 Warren was born about 1822. Osmond, JohnElizabeth2 married John Osmond on 13 Jul 1844 in Fox Island. John was born about 1820.
+ 5 iv. Bavillam2 Warren was born about 1824.
+ 6 v. Henry2 Warren was born about 1824.
+ 7 vi. Grace2 Warren was born about 1830.
+ 8 vii. Thomas2 Warren was born about 1833.
+ 9 viii. Edward2 Warren was born about 1837.
2. William2 Warren (Edward1) was born about 1813. He was buried on 12 Nov 1891 in Tibbo's Cove. , Grace William2 married (1) Grace. Grace was born about 1816.
Grace3 was born in 1837 to William2 and Grace Warren. Grace3 was baptised on the same day that William2 Warren and Ann Thornhill (bachelor and spinster of Fox Island) were married. The implication of the bachelor note is that there must be two Williams. The simplest theory is to have only one William2 with two wives in sequence, even in the face of the “bachelor” declaration for his second marriage. Secondly, the baptism of a child of William2 and Grace on the same day and place as the marriage of William2 and Ann only sounds reasonable with one William2. William2 Warren was known to be in Fox Island in 1831.
There are three other children born early enough to qualify as children of William2 and Grace; all born prior to the marriage of William2 and Ann or the marriage of any of his siblings. Edward1 already has living children of these names. The children could be named Grace3 (for the mother), Edward3 (for the paternal grandfather), William3 (for the father) and Henry3 (possibly for the maternal grandfather?).
William2 and Grace had the following children:
10 i. Grace3 Warren was born on 24 May 1837 in Fox Island and was christened on 9 Sep 1844 in Fox Island.
11 ii. Edward3 Warren was born about 1837. He married Maria Young.
+ 12 iii. Henry3 Warren was born about 1840.
+ 13 iv. William3 Warren was born about 1841.
William2 also married (2) Ann Thornhill on 9 Sep 1844 in Fox Island. Ann was born about 1823.
3. John2 Warren (Edward1) was born about 1819 in Fox Island. John2 married (1) Frances Bonnell on 9 Sep 1844 in Fox Island. Frances was born about 1827. She died on 9 May 1849 in Fox Island.
Sarah3 Warren (born c 1849), has no parent declared and could have been the daughter of John2, Bavillam2, or Henry2. Bavillam2 cannot be her father since he named another child Sarah3. Henry2 has another child born in Mar 1850. Sarah3 has been assigned to John2 and Frances.
After Frances died, five other children designated as children of “John Warren” were born. There are also two further children, probably twins, who have their parents declared as John2 and Elizabeth. This means that John2 must have married again after Frances’ death but before the birth of the first of the second group of children (estimated to be 1856).
There is one child, Thomas3, who married a woman named Elizabeth and had three children designated as children of Thomas3 and Elizabeth. This Thomas3 is different from Thomas3, born c 1855, who married Mary Ann; and Thomas3, the son of Edward2 and Jane (b c 1869) who married Elizabeth Ann Clarke. This Thomas3, by the date of his birth, could be the son of John2, Bavillam2, Edward2, Henry2, or William3. Henry2 has a child whose birth date conflicts with that of this Thomas3, and Bavillam2, Edward2 and William3 all have children by the name of Thomas. The only man left is John2 who, with his wife, Elizabeth, could be the parents of this Thomas3.
Henry3 Warren, born c 1858, is a candidate to be a child of John2, Bavillam2, Henry2, or Thomas2. Henry2 already has a son named Henry3 and another child born in that year so he is highly unlikely as a father. William3 and Albert3 John are also born in 1858 and with Henry3, these three must be assigned to those three fathers. Only Albert3 John survives to the 1921 Newfoundland census and he is found living alone as a widower in Fox Island, giving no indication as to his sibling(s). These are three of the seven arbitrary assignments to parents. Henry3 is assigned to John2, William3 to Bavillam2, and Albert3 John to Thomas2.
Two more children, suggested by later marriage records to have been born in the late 1850's, do not appear in any of the earlier records. Mary3 Jane Warren married Ezekiel McDonald in 1880, giving her a birth year of about 1859, and after her death, he married Emma3 Warren in 1884. Ezekiel and Emma3 are alive in 1921 where we find Emma3’s birth to be Feb 1859 in Fox Island. The fact that these two Warren women from Fox Island both married the same man suggests that they might have been sisters (or at least closely related) and the closeness of their supposed birth dates suggests that they might, in fact, be twin sisters. John2, Bavillam2, Henry2, or Thomas2 may be their father and there is not much to tell us which is more likely. However, John2 already has two sets of twins in his family which is encouraging. These two women are assigned to John2 and Elizabeth since this seems to be the simplest construction based on the slim evidence remaining.
John2 and Frances had the following children:
14 i. Rebecca3 Warren was born on 5 Jun 1845 in Fox Island and was christened on 5 Sep 1845 in Fox Island.
15 ii. Sarah3 Warren was born about 1849. She married Francis Clarke.
John2 also married (2) Elizabeth. Elizabeth was born about 1836. She died on 21 Apr 1899 in Fox Island and was buried on 24 Apr 1899 in Fox Island.
If John married Elizabeth in 1856, she would have been about 20 years old at that time, nearly the average age at marriage for spinster women. There is no other known Warren man of this time for whom she would qualify as a widow and so the simplest conclusion is that she is the second wife of John2 Warren and the mother of those twelve children. Elizabeth Warren, widow of John2, is found in McAlpine’s Newfoundland Directory for 1898 in the listing for Fox Island.
John2 and Elizabeth had the following children:
16 iii. Henry3 Warren was born about 1858. He married Elizabeth Louisa Rose on 14 Sep 1882 in Burgeo.
17 iv. Mary3 Jane Warren was born about 1859. She married Ezekiel McDonald on 13 Sep 1880 at Fox Island.
+ 18 v. Emma3 Warren was born Feb 1859.
+ 19 vi. Susannah3 Warren was born about 1860.
+ 20 vii. John3 Warren was born about 1861.
+ 21 viii. James3 Warren was born in Aug 1861.
+ 22 ix. Thomas3 Warren was born Jun 1863 at Little River.
+ 23 x. Ann3 Warren was born 28 May 1864 at Little River.
24 xi. Frances3 Warren was born 7 Sep 1865 in Little River. Frances3 married Francis Lushman on 21 May 1889 in Little River as his second wife. Francis was born about 1859 in Little River.
25 xii. Barzillai3 Warren was christened on 21 Oct 1868 in Fox Island.
26 xiii. Mary3 Rebecca Warren was christened on 21 Oct 1868 in Fox Island.
+ 27 xiv. George3 Warren was born May 1875.
5. Bavillam2 Warren (Edward1) was born about 1824 in Fox Island. He died on 22 Dec 1896 in Coppett and was buried on 24 Dec 1896 in Coppett. Bavillam2 married Susan Hayman on 21 Sep 1849 in Fox Island. Susan was born about 1827.
The church records have only one documented child for Bavillam and Susan Hayman Warren (born 1863) after a marriage beginning in 1849. Thus, there could easily be a number of children born to this couple, some of whom may have died, leaving no record. Thomas3 is one such or possibly Edward3 (both born c 1855). They could also be assigned to Henry2 but probably not both to the same father unless our estimated birth years are wrong, or they are twins. Thomas3 has arbitrarily been assigned to Bavillam2. These are another two (making five so far) of the seven totally arbitrary assignments.
Elizabeth3 can only have been the daughter of either Bavillam2 or Henry2. Since Henry2 later has a child by the name of Elizabeth3 (born 1870) her father is almost certainly Bavillam2.
Bavillam2 and Susan had the following children:
+ 28 i. Elizabeth3 Warren was born Mar 1850.
29 ii. Benjamin3 Warren was born about 1853. Benjamin married Margerate Belle MacDonald, daughter of John and Catherine MacDonald, on 16 Sep 1885, at Ingonish, Nova Scotia, Canada.
+ 30 iii. Thomas3 Warren was born about 1855.
+ 31 iv. William3 Warren was born about 1858.
32 v. Samuel3 Warren was born on 21 Nov 1860 in Fox Island and was christened in Fox Island. He died 13 Jun 1945 and was buried 15 Jun 1945 in Neil's Harbour, Victoria, Nova Scotia.
33 vi. Sarah3 Warren was christened on 7 Jul 1863 in Fox Island. Sarah3 married George Bowles on 13 Sep 1883 in Fox Island. George was born about 1859 in Coppett.
6. Henry2 Warren (Edward1) was born about 1824 in Fox Island. Henry2 married Elizabeth Hayman on 21 Sep 1849 in Fox Island. Elizabeth was born about 1832. She died on 6 Dec 1914 in Fox Island.
Henry2 and Elizabeth had the following children:
+ 34 i. Edward3 Warren was born about 1855.
35 ii. Henry3 Warren was born about 1856. He married Susannah Bowles.
+ 36 iii. Hannah3 Warren was born about 1858.
37 iv. Benjamin3 Warren was christened on 5 May 1863 in Fox Island.
38 v. Jane3 Warren was christened on 21 Sep 1864 in Fox Island.
+ 39 vi. Susanna3 Warren was christened on 25 Jul 1867.
+ 40 vii. Elizabeth3 Warren was christened on 20 May 1870.
7. Grace2 Warren (Edward1) was born about 1830 in Fox Island. Grace2 married James Melbourne on 22 Sep 1852. James was born about 1828.
James and Grace2 had the following children:
41 i. William3 Melbourne was christened on 4 Nov 1855 in Furby's Island.
42 ii. James3 Melbourne was christened on 6 Jan 1859 in King's Harbour.
8. Thomas2 Warren (Edward1) was born about 1833 in Fox Island. He died in 1862. Thomas2 married Sarah Hunt on 13 Sep 1858 in Ramea. Sarah was born about 1837 in Ramea.
Sarah Warren subsequently married John Meade in 1863 which is supportive of the early death for Thomas2.
Thomas2 and Sarah had the following children:
+ 43 i. Albert3 John Warren was born in Jun 1858.
+ 44 ii. Isabella3 Warren was christened on 3 Jun 1861.
9. Edward2 Warren (Edward1) was born about 1837 in Fox Island. He died before 1898. Edward2 married Jane Rose on 1 Jul 1862 in Ramea. Jane was born about 1844 in Fox Island. She died on 21 Apr 1933 in Fox Island, age 89.
There are two men of the second or third generation named Edward Warren. Both were born about 1837 and both married in 1862. One died in 1862, age 25 years, shortly after marrying Maria Young (she subsequently married John Bagg in 1866 - as Maria Warren, widow ). The other one married Jane Rose.
Edward2 (husband of Jane) has been assigned as a child of Edward1, and Edward3 (husband of Maria) to William2, eldest son of Edward1. There is no direct evidence which reveals the parents of these two contemporary Edwards but we know that they are not likely both children of the same father and there are no other Warren fathers of child siring condition available in 1837. These are the last two of the seven arbitrary lineage assignments.
James3 Warren (b Aug 1861, son of John2) is found living in the same household with his aunt Jane Warren (widow) in 1921. The next listed household is that of Jane’s son, Edward3. Her age is given as 70 years in 1921 which would make her only 11 when she married. Since James3 age is significantly young, hers may be as well. Her age at death is 89 yrs, a much more sensible age (born 1844).
Edward2 and Jane had the following children:
+ 45 i. Edward3 William Warren was christened on 6 May 1863.
46 ii. Barzillia3 Warren was christened on 19 May 1864 in Coppett.
47 iii. Rebecca3 Jane Warren was christened on 19 Sep 1867 in Little River.
48 iv. Thomas3 Warren was christened on 17 Apr 1869 in Little River. He died on 23 Aug 1893 in Fox Island. Thomas3 married Elizabeth4 Ann Clarke, daughter of Francis Clark and Sarah3 Warren, 15 Sep 1892 in Fox Island.
49 v. Elizabeth3 Warren was born Mar 1872 in Little River. Elizabeth3 married Samuel4 Cole(y) on 6 Sep 1897 in Fox Island. Samuel4 was born about 1872 in Fox Island, the son of William Cole and Elizabeth3 Warren. See No. 94.
12. Henry3 Warren (William2, Edward1) was born about 1840 in Fox Island. He died on 24 Jun 1910 in Burgeo and was buried on 26 Jun 1910 in Burgeo. Henry3 married Frances Hayman on 25 Sep 1871 in Fox Island. Frances was born in Aug 1849 in Fox Island. She died after 1921.
Henry3 and Frances had the following children:
50 i. Mary4 Warren was born about 1873 in Burgeo. Mary4 married John Anderson on 5 Oct 1896 in Burgeo.John was born about 1873 in Burgeo.
51 ii. John4 Warren was born about 1877 in Fox Island. John4 married Elizabeth Anderson on 14 Oct 1898 in Burgeo. Elizabeth died 12 Jun 1909 in Burgeo.
52 iii. Benjamin4 Warren was christened on 23 Aug 1880 in Fox Island. Benjamin4 married Bertha Mary Hatcher on 15 Oct 1910 at Burgeo. Bertha was born 13 Jan 1890 and baptised 9 Jun 1890 in Ramea.
53 iv. Thomas4 Warren was born on 24 Sep 1881 in Fox Island and was christened on 14 Oct 1881 in Fox Island. Thomas4 married Julia before 1919. Julia was born about 1896.
54 v. Joseph4 Henry Warren was born on 24 Jan 1885 in Burgeo and was christened on 25 Jan 1885 in Burgeo. He died on 6 Aug 1961. Joseph4 married Harriet Jane Benoit 18 Sep 1907 at Burgeo. Harriet was born about 1890 in Gable Pond. She died on 28 Jan 1974.
55 vi. Samuel4 Warren was born on 4 Apr 1888 in Burgeo and was christened on 26 Apr 1888 in Burgeo. Samuel4 married first Elizabeth Ingraham on 16 Feb 1913 in Burgeo. Elizabeth was born about 1883 in Burgeo. She died 18 Jan 1917 at Burgeo. He married second Agnes Benoite on 26 Nov 1917 at Burgeo.
56 vii. Amy4 Warren was born on 11 Jul 1893 and christened on 25 Aug 1893 in Burgeo.
13. William3 Warren (William2, Edward1) was born about 1841 in Fox Island. William3 married Frances Rose on 1 Jul 1862 in Fox Island. Frances was born about 1845. She died on 11 Oct 1927 in Burgeo.
