Book-on-CD Edition

The original Wellington District Marriage Registers were found in private hands in the late 1990s. They have now been completely transcribed and indexed by Dan Walker and Fawne Stratford-Devai.

This work includes a complete transcription of the original Wellington District Marriage Registers and the original marriage returns sent by Ministers to the Clerk of the Peace. Also included are baptism and burial records as decribed in the individual volumes' descriptions (below). Includes all or part of the following contemporary counties: Grey, Wellington & Dufferin.

An example of some of the townships where marriages occurred and were reported in the Wellington District Register include: Arthur, Bentinck, Blenheim, Caledon, Chinguacousy, Clinton, Derby, Dumfries, Easthope (South and North), Egremont, Ellice, Eramosa, Erin, Esquesing, Flamborough East and West, Garafraxa, Glenelg, Grantham, Guelph, Holland, Nassagaweya, Nelson, Newash, Nichol, Normanby, Peel, Pilkington, Puslinch, St. Vincent, Stanley, Sullivan, Sydenham, Tuckersmith, Vaughan, Waterloo, Wellesley, Wilmot and Woolwich.

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 Wellington District register you would be well advised to search bordering districts such as the Gore District Marriage Register, The Home District Marriage Register, The Brock District Marriage Register, the Simcoe District Marriage Register and the Huron District Marriage Register.

Surrounding contemporary counties include: Simcoe, Peel, Bruce, Perth, Waterloo.
