Place Name Changes

Places renamed, abandoned, resettled, combined into an existing name or under a new name. This list began when Barbara Pederson forwarded a list of about 200 place name changes compiled by Jim Butler. As of February 2001 there were 604 place name changes in the list. The majority of communities on this list have been submitted by persons unknown and the validity has not been confirmed.

Please see table at the end for corrections or additions over the years.

'Mars Road' (near Whitbourne) Renamed Blaketown in honor of Sir Henry Blake in the 1890's
Old Chop You have Old Shop changed from Old Chop. Old residents claim the original name was "Old Choppy"
Scilly CoveWinterton. In fact the SUF Lodge #2 in that community still bares the old namesake of the community
