In November of 1822 the Bathurst District was proclaimed and marriage returns for Lanark, Renfrew and Carleton Counties had to be returned to the Clerk of the Peace in the District Town of Perth. Any marriages showing a residence of the parties as Unsurveyed Lands would eventually become the townships of Admaston, Bagot, Bromley, Blythfield and Stafford. In 1838 Carleton County was removed from the Bathurst District and given the name of the Dalhousie District. However, the clerk of the Dalhousie District did not begin a separate register until 1842. Consequently, marriages returns for Carleton County from 1842 are not included in the Bathurst District Marriage Register.

To date the Dalhousie District marriage register has not been found and is believed to have perished in the Court House fire of 1870. For marriages in the Bathurst District before 1821 refer to Volume 8 part 1,Johnstown District Marriage Register 1799 - 1851. A volume of Dalhousie vital records 1825-1869 has been published separately.

The Bathurst District was abolished in May of 1849 but the Clerk continued to record marriages in the register until 1852.

Townships included in the Bathurst District: Admaston, Bagot, Bathurst, Beckwith, Blithefield, Bromley, Dalhousie, Darling, Drummond, Fitzroy, Goulbourn, Horton, Huntley, Lanark, Lavant, MacNab, March, Nepean, Pakenham, Pembroke, Ramsay, Ross, Sherbrooke North, Sherbrooke South, Stafford, Torbolton and Westmeath.

When searching for marriages recorded in District Marriage Registers keep in mind that many returns were submitted by ministers who were circuit riders who often performed marriages at great distance from their home bases. Circuit riders reported marriages in the register of the District where they lived which was not necessarily in the same District where the marriage took place. That said, if you cannot find the marriage in the Bathurst District register you would be well advised to search bordering districts such as the Dalhousie, Eastern, Johnstown and Midland.
