Book-on-CD Edition

Includes all or part of the following modern counties: Northumberland, Peterborough, Colborne, Victoria & Durham.

Once the Newcastle District was proclaimed in 1802 marriage returns for the counties of Northumberland (Peterborough County parts of which later became Colborne County and Mansfield County which later became Victoria County) and Durham had to be returned to the Clerk of the Peace in the District town of Cobourg.

In 1834, certain townships not originally part of the District were attached to counties in the district: Ennismore, Harvey, Douro, Dummer, Belmont, Burleigh and Methuen to Northumberland and Verulan, Fenelon and Eldon to Durham. In 1841 the Colborne District was proclaimed and created out of the townships in the North of Newcastle District (Peterborough and Victoria Counties). Marriages performed in the townships separated into the Colborne District are not included in the Newcastle Register after 1841.

For marriages in the Colborne District refer to the Colborne District Marriage Register.

In May of 1849 the Newcastle District was abolished and the United Counties of Northumberland and Durham succeeded the District however marriage returns continued to be sent to the Clerk and exist up to 1855.

Townships included in the Newcastle District, those with an * next to them became part of the Colborne District in 1841: Alnwick, *Asphodel, *Belmont, *Burleigh, Cartwright, Cavan, Clarke, Cramahe, Darlington, *Douro, *Dummer, *Eldon, *Emily, *Ennismore, *Fenelon, Haldimand, Hamilton, *Harvey, Hope, Manvers, *Mariposa, *Methuen, *Monaghan North, *Monaghan South, Murray, *Ops, *Otonabee, Percy, Seymour, *Smith and *Verulam.

Revised and Expanded Edition of 2000

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 Newcastle District register you would be well advised to search bordering districts such as the Colborne, Victoria, Prince Edward and Home Districts.
