The following from Descendants of Abraham Snow on a Jersey Web site.
There seems little doubt that Jean Snow (1678- ) at generation 3 emigrated to Newfoundland. This note is included in the Korey Snow family tree on Ancestry:”From the book From Snow to Snow By James G Snow. James Snow, Publisher, New York, New York 1984. He was born in St Aubin, England, a small harbor used by the NFL fishing fleet. There is no Record in Jersey of Jean Snow’s marriage or death or baptisms of any of his children, which indicates that they took place in Newfoundland. It is most likely that Jean is also the John at Kelly’s Island (1708 first Snow in NFL) He would have been 30 years of age when he was “Planted” there (became a permanent resident)”

The Snows lived in the area at the top of this hill in the eastern end of Bareneed known as Jorsey. This was likely a reference to Jersey since many of the settlers in this area (Batten, Snow, Preautx /Picco, LeViscounte, Norman) had roots in the Channel Islands.
Edward Snow built the Brothers, 65 tons for Edward French, and two other schooners the Winter, 64 tons and John, 47 tons (no other information) were registered as built in Bareneed. Success (17 tons) owned by Edward Snow registered in 1812.
