Louis CLYNE and LOUIS PINNETT / PENNETT
Perth, Ontario and Huntley Township area

Lookup requested re: marriages in Huntley 1837+
I just got a link to your info from a helpful person on a rootsweb mailing list.
This contains two marriages I would dearly love details on, if you are still
1. Clyne, Louis married Margaret McDonald 8/5/1895
2. Pinnett, Louis married Hannah McDonald 7/5/1892
(Note: The two McDonald brides were sisters ... Al)
I am 100% sure the first couple are my direct ancestors. I am 80% sure the second groom
is a descendent of another direct ancestor, Louis Pennett (the name was usually
misspelled since it was very unusual).
This would be terribly useful if you could provide me with the content and source
of these two marriage records.
Thanks so much,
Here are the records you asked for. There may be earlier records for these
families at St. John the Evangelist in Perth and/or Notre Dame in Ottawa.
Maher, Daniel Benedict son of Maher, Daniel and McDonald, Ellen Theresa
was born on 9/16/1911
Witnesses were: Hunt, Peter & Clyne, Mrs. Denis (Margaret McDonald) (Denis could
be Louis, hard to read)
Clyne, Louis son of Clyne, Edward and Penette, Catherine of Perth
McDonald, Margaret daughter of McDonald, Alexander & Grace, Margaret (dec)
Witnesses: Clyne, James & McDonald, Ellen
Pinnett, Louis son of Pinnett, James and Murphy, Mary of Perth
McDonald, Hannah daughter of McDonald, Alexander & Grace, Margaret
no witnesses given
Other children of Alexander McDonald (also sp. McDonnell) and Margaret Grace are listed.
These records are from St. Michael's Church, village of Corkery, Township of Huntley,
County of Carleton.

I don't know if you're still on the lookout for info but Louis Pennett was my
great great grandfather (I hope I've enough greats).

Hello Mary Jane and Sarah:
Thanks, Mary Jane, for your e-mail.
Here's another record, this one from Notre Dame in downtown Ottawa, which may
relate to your ancestors:
16 Jul 1854
After dispensing with banns, marriage of Michael O'Boyle living in Bytown, adult
son of the late Thomas O'Boyle and Mary Clyne, to Anastasia Grace living in
Bytown, minor daughter of Pierce Grace and Julia Regan (born Newfoundland in 1833)
Witnesses: Father of the bride, Mary Grace & Cornelius Morier (Maher?)
Source: Ellen Paul
(The village of Gracefield, just north of Ottawa, was named after the Grace family
who came from Gracefield, County Kilkenny, Ireland. Pierce is a common first name
in this specific locality in Ireland.)
Do you mind if I add your e-mail to the web page on my site (www.bytown.net/clyne.htm)
for other researchers? Please let me know.

I find Louis Pennett fascinating and Id love to hear from anyone who might be
able to fill in the gaps!
... Mary Jane
and more from Sarah:
Yes, Mary Jane, I am also descended from Louis Pennett of Perth, ON.
I have been working on my family history for many years, but right now I am taking
a break from it due to time constraints.
Here is a quick summary of what I know:
My great-great grandmother was Catherine Pennett, daughter of Louis Pennett and
Catherine Freeman. She married Edmund Clyne, also of Perth, son of Pierre Klein
and Marie-Josephte Curonne dit St. Pierre. Louis Pennett and Pierre Klein
(later went by Peter Clyne), who settled in Perth at the same time (abt. 1819)
were European soldiers from the so-called "Swiss" deMeuron regiment (mostly Swiss,
German, French, Belgian) who served together fighting for the British Army in the
War of 1812. They were mostly stationed in Quebec. They were granted their Perth
land upon being released from the service. Edward and Catherine's son married a
woman from Huntley Twp area, and raised their family in Ottawa; their descendants
mostly live there still.
There are also still many Pennetts and Clynes in the Perth area; there was even
a Clyne family reunion there a couple years ago.
Al, I wouldn't mind if you posted my email, except that as I said, right now I have
put away all my research for a little while in order to focus on more pressing tasks.
When I get back into it, I will contact you, and then you could list me.
Mary Jane, let me know if you have anything to add to what I know, or if you have
any questions I could help with...how are you and I related, then?
Thanks for your emails,
... Sarah Clyne-Sanchez

I was in Perth this week and was able to take some pictures at St John's Cemetery.
I would love any additional information these 2 ladies may have on the Clyne's,
Grace's and O'Boyle lines. I am still trying to relate my O'Boyle's in to this line.
I have been working with a lady in Utah who is related to the Grace line. This
family has become a 4 year brick wall to us. Any and all information would be wonderful.
