I have done research on the Dawe family and to my knowledge all the Dawes in Nfld originated in Port de Grave,Nfld. There were 2 main families: the Devon Daw (note spelling!) family which may have come as early as 1595 and the Cornwall family, which came in 1770. Their descendents eventually spread to other settlements along the east coast of Nfld, and there was a branch which went to Nova Scotia in search of employment there. So the Kelligrews and Upper Gullies Dawes probably originated from Port de Grave. Eg. My great grdfather married into the Coates family from Upper Gullies and moved there.
