Detailed map of Newfoundland, published to accompany the presentation of the Reverend Julian Moreton to the Royal Geographical Society.

Julian Moreton

In 1849, Julian Moreton was an Anglican Clergyman stationed at Greenspond, Newfoundland, Bonavista Bay, with financial backing from the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts (S.P.G.). The Greenspond Mission covered seventy miles of coast and 23 distinct settlements which had to be reached by boat.

Moreton gave several lectures when he returned to England, which were published in 1863 under the title Life and work in Newfoundland; reminiscences of thirteen years spent there, which gives a detailed account of Moreton's life as a missionary as well as valuable descriptions of the local society.
