Gordon Handcock draws upon primary source records to create a record of complex English settlement patterns in Newfoundland. During the seventeenth century when migratory fishery was the only economic activity, there was virtually no permanent settlement and the island was regarded as a training ground for British sailors. Those trainees were often indigent boys who were were sent-out from English towns because company owners were required to carry a number of "men" who had never sailed.

Permanent settlement was not immmediate however it was influenced by the migratory fishery. Many seasonal communities that were visited for years, later became the sites of permanent settlement.

Handcock, a professor at Memorial University, began his research in 1973. The thirty-four pages of footnotes and fourteen pages of bibliography attest to the intense and in-depth work in his socio-economic study.

The numerous maps, graphs, tables and charts also enhance the book's value to historians and genealogists.

Handcock delves into the pattern of migration from English homelands to the various nooks and crannies of Newfoundland and into the personalities of such original communities.

In his third section he identifies names, occupations, some of the reasons for emigration (from England) and general effects on the regions that the emigrants left.

Making available previously unknown and untapped sources of information, Hancock's book is a treasure trove for those intent on the study of Newfoundland's heritage, and it's founding families. This book has been used as a textbook at Memorial University, St. John's, Newfoundland.
