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. Using individual returns submitted by clergy performing vital events in the county, the clerk of Perth County created a separate register for marriages, baptisms and burials in 1852.

Those with ancestors in Perth county will be very pleased to know that both the early county register and the original returns submitted by clergy survive.

This book includes a complete transcription of the all surviving county records for the period - both the registers and the original returns from the clergy for the period 1852-1859.
