Following the move from a district to a county system of local government in mid 19th century Ontario, counties became responsible for recording all marriages within their boundaries. The clerk of Middlesex County began a separate register for marriages in 1852. Some entries in the register date as early as 1848 since an early return from one minister included marriages from 1848.

This publication includes a complete transcription of the Middlesex County Marriage Register (1852-1856) plus some additional extracts.
