BOOK - London Ontario's Unrepentant Confederates, the Ku Klux Klan and a RENDITION on WELLINGTON STREET   
By Ron W. Shaw
Published by Global Heritage Press, Ottawa, 2018
Immediately following the American Civil War, a wave of unrepentant Confederate families who refused to take the oath of allegiance to the United States Constitution flowed into Canada between 1865 and 1870. Many of those took up residence across southwestern Ontario, including in the city of London. They were joined by men, soon followed by their families, who were fleeing arrest as American President Ulysses S. Grant moved to destroy the Ku Klux Klan. This book tells the story of London’s refugee Confederates, KKK fugitives and, in particular, of one man for whom even London proved within reach of a U.S. Deputy Marshal. The ‘Bratton Affair’ demonstrated a long-standing sympathy among Londoners, and Canadians generally, for the Confederate cause. It also revealed the young Dominion’s sensitivity in matters of sovereignty and its continued dependence on the muscle of Great Britain in foreign affairs.

BOOKS - County Marriage Registers of Ontario 1858-1869, Second Edition - 38 volumes organized by County
By Elizabeth Hancocks C. G. & W. E. Britnell and Donald A. McKenzie
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton/Carleton Place
Legislation passed in 1857 that required registration of all marriages performed by all clergymen in the Province of Canada West (Ontario). The marriages were recorded in County Marriage Registers. They were to begin on January 1, 1858 and finish on July 1, 1869. Some counties started early, including marriages performed before 1858, and some registers include marriages performed in the later months of 1869 even though formal provincial civil registration of birth, marriage and death began in the summer of 1869.

These books are more than just an indexes of the original registers. They contain transcriptions of names, dates and places and oftentimes, ages of bride and groom, and names of parents. If you are looking for a marriage recorded in Ontario between 1858-1869, this is first resource to check.

BOOKS - District Marriage Registers of Ontario 1786-1870 - 32 volumes organized by District, referencing contained counties
By Dan Walker, Fawne Stratford-Devai
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton/Carleton Place, 1999-2013
Prior to counties becoming administrative entities in the 1850s, the province of Upper Canada (Ontario) was initially divided into four administrative Districts which subdivided as population grew to become twenty five Districts. Early efforts at civil registration were recorded by those Districts. In spite of Counties becoming administrative authorities in the 1849, a few District marriage registers continued to be updated as late as 1870.

During the early period of settlement all ministers who performed marriages with the exception of Anglican and Roman Catholic ministers, were required to submit returns to the Clerk of the Peace for the District where the minister resided. That said, plenty of Anglicans and Catholics were married by nonconformist ministers, usually as a result of their preferred church not having been established in their locale yet. The majority of returns begin in the 1830s with a few Districts recording marriages as early as 1786. The Clerk of the Peace then recorded the returns in a District register kept in the District office. Most of the original District Marriage Registers survive and have been reliably transcribed into this series of books. The section also include a few volumes of 'District Vital Records' which include transcriptions of vital records (BMDs) from other sources in the same time period.

BOOKS - Surrogate Court Indexes of Ontario, Canada, 1859-1900 (Wills), Second Edition - 27 volumes organized by County
Compiled by June Gibson, Indexed by Elizabeth Hancocks, C. G. & Shannon Hancocks
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton/Carleton Place, 2005
Wills and the documents that contribute to the process of distributing the estate of a deceased individual can be a wonderful source of information about the deceased, their family and those who survived. Estate Files are of great interest because of the bounty of detailed information that they contain about the deceased, and about those who survive. The Surrogate Court used the documents in order to disperse the deceased's estate, whether he/she died with (testate) or without (intestate) a Will. These indexes are designed to assist researchers in finding estate and death information for those who died in Ontario from the mid to late 1800s

BOOK - Haldimand County Marriage and Burial Registers, 1851 - 1865
By Dan Walker, Fawne Stratford-Devai
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2001 (CD 2011)
Haldimand County began separate registers for marriages and burials in 1851. This transcription includes records from the "1851 registers" which cover the period of 1851-1865. At first glance, one might think that the marriages included in this register for the 1858-1865 period are duplicates of those recorded in the "County Marriage Registers" which were used between 1858 and 1869. There are marriages in this earlier "1851 register" which are were not recorded in the "County Marriage Registers 1858-1869" and vice versa. It is important to check both registers.

BOOK - Reminiscences of the Early History of Galt and the Settlement of Dumfries in the Province of Ontario
By James Young
Originally published by Hunter, Rose and Company, Toronto, 1880

Young's writing and research skills are evident in this captivating local history of the town of Galt and its surrounding neighborhood. The time period covered is from immediately prior to the arrival of European settlers until 1880. Galt, once an independant municipality, was amalgamated with the towns of Hespeller, Preston and the settlement of Blair into a single legal entity under a new name of Cambridge in 1973. Galt covers the largest portion of Cambridge, taking up the southern half of the city. After 130 years, James Young's history is still considered to be an essential resource for everyone who has an interest in the settlement and early development of Galt.

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.

BOOK - Annals of Puslinch 1950-1967 (Wellington County, Ontario)
By Puslinch Centennial Committee

During Canada's 100th anniversary of Confederation, many community groups compiled and published local histories. The title is deceiving insofar as it leads the reader to believe that the book is restricted to events between 1950 and 1967. In fact, early local and family history is included, stretching back to the settlement of the community.

The first part, Chapters 1 to 5, gives a chronological story of the development of Dunwich up to about 1903. The second part gives a pictorial view of Dunwich and information on religion, education, biographies of noted citizens of Dunwich; land records and associated information. 395 pages; hardcover; photos are black and white, however there are eight colour pages; ISBN 0-9732895-0-3 (V. 1)

BOOK - The Silver Chief: Lord Selkirk and the Scottish Pioneers of Belfast, Baldoon and Red River
Concerns: Prince Edward Island, Baldoon (Wallaceburg, Ontario) and Red River [Manitoba]
By L. H. Campey
Published by Dundurn, Toronto, 2003
Belfast, Prince Edward Island, founded in August 1803, owes its existence to Lord Selkirk. Its bicentennial is a timely reminder of Selkirk’s work in Canada, which extended beyond Belfast to Baldoon (later Wallaceburg) in Ontario, as well as to Red River, the precursor to Winnipeg. Aptly named "The Silver Chief" by the five Indian chiefs with whom he negotiated a land treaty at Red River, the fifth Earl of Selkirk spent an immense fortune in helping Scottish Highlanders relocate themselves in Canada. Selkirk has been well observed through the eyes of the rich and powerful, but his settlers have been neglected. Why did they leave Scotland? Which districts did they come from? Why did they settle in Canada? Why did Selkirk help them? How successful were their settlements? What impact did they have on Canada’s early development? Did Selkirk realize his ambitions for Canada? In answering these questions, Lucille H. Campey presents a new and powerful case for re-assessing the achievements of Selkirk and his settlers. Using a wealth of documentary sources, she reconstructs the sequence of emigration from Scotland to the three areas of Canada where settlements were founded. She shows that emigration took place in a carefully planned and controlled way. She reveals the self-reliance, adaptability and steely determination of the Selkirk settlers in overcoming their many problems and obstacles.
