Marriages in Bytown or Concerning Residents of
Bytown, Nepean and Richmond, 1829-1856
October 23, 2006:
Thanks to Sue for transcribing the following records!
These notices are from books based on what William D. Reid and Thomas B. Wilson
compiled from marriage and death notices from 21 different Ontario newspapers.
They did these for the years 1810-1854, so I assume this is when these men lived.
They were re-published in Maryland in 1997 and 2000. The titles are
Marriage Notices of Ontario (1810-1849), Ontario Marriages (1813-1854), Death Notices of Ontario (1810-1849).
