KENT COUNTY MARRIAGES 1857-1869

This publishing project was first begun in 1985 when we published an index to the Kent County Marriage Register, transcribed from Ontario Archives Reference MS248 Reel 8, RG 8, Series 1-6-B. It was completed under the direction of Judith A. Mitten and Joan Griffin with the help and guidance of Amedee Emery, William Britnell and Arlie Robbins.

In 1988, in an effort to provide a more complete reference to marriages that took place during such a critical period in the history of our county, we published the transcriptions. This was made possible through the efforts of project coordinator Helen Blackburn and Pamela Sojczynski of the Chatham Public Library, who typed it.

In 1990 we decided that an improvement could be made on this reference work by including the witnesses to the marriages and including an index. As work on the project progressed, much checking and re-checking was done and there were many instances where there were several possible interpretations of a name. It was decided therefore, that a section be included showing variant readings. We have also included a section on possible family groupings and a chronological listing of all known Kent County marriages from 1857 to 1869.

After more than two years of work by several members of the Kent Branch this important reference work has been completed. The project team included: Bryan Prince, Pat Bedford, Joan Griffin, Leslie Mancell, John Claus, Ruth Humphreys, Amedee Emery, Helen Blackburn, Bert Wees, Sylvester McKeon and Bill Claus.

As with the previous reference works to Kent County Marriages every effort has been made to assure accuracy, to the point of having delayed publication by more than a year. Despite all of our efforts to ensure accuracy, we strongly suggest that this be used as a guide only, and where there appears to be some doubt, the original microfilm be consulted.

Index of Names
Explanatory Page

The Kent County Branch extracted information from the Kent County Marriage Register microfilm. The film, and the writing on it, is in many places very difficult to decipher. It seems two hand-written copies existed.

From one of those hand-written copies the original published index was compiled. Later, from the other handwritten copy, a typed copy of the extraction's was completed and published. The two hand-written copies may explain, in part, some of the differences between that first index and the typed extraction's.

Subsequent research has indicated many marriages may have not been included in the Kent County Marriage Register. With the extraction's having been typed and published, it was decided that the index should be re-done, to include all the names. The database has been updated to include other marriages of the 1857-1869 time period; alternate and variant readings for the names -- by re-reading entries from the microfilm and by reading other sources; names of parents, etc., which are not in the Register; and to include the names of Witnesses for the marriages.

The typed extraction's are being printed with only minor corrections and the addition of the names of the Witnesses. The Register extraction's do not include the additional information from other sources.

The Index of Names which follows attempts to include all names in the database, indexed by every noted variant and alternate form of the name. It includes names which do not appear in the typed transcripts, nor anywhere in this publication -- for example it may show 110.28 GRFA John Smith which indicates that John Smith was the groom's father for the marriage which appears in Folio 110 entry 28. If John Smith's name did not appear in the Register, then it does not appear in the typed extracts -- but from other sources we believe John Smith was the father of the groom whose marriage is noted there.

The format of this index is: Folio Status Name.
"Status" is: BR-Bride GR-Groom WITN-Witness
BRFA - Bride's Father GRFA - Groom's Father
BRMO - Bride's Mother GRMO - Groom's Mother

Corrections: If we have missed including any we were given, our apologies. Any further corrections would be welcomed for a proposed ongoing database of marriages in Kent County or marriages of Kent County persons. [Date of Marriage, Place of Marriage, Names of Bride & Groom and of their parents; Source or Reference.]

With the extraction's having been typed and published, it was decided that the index should be re-done, to include all the names. The database has been updated to include other marriages of the 1857-1869 time period; alternate and variant readings for the names -- by re-reading entries from the microfilm and by reading other sources; names of parents, etc., which are not in the Register; and to include the names of Witnesses for the marriages.

The typed extraction's are being printed with only minor corrections and the addition of the names of the Witnesses. The Register extraction's do not include the additional information from other sources.

The Index of Names which follows attempts to include all names in the database, indexed by every noted variant and alternate form of the name. It includes names which do not appear in the typed transcripts, nor anywhere in this publication -- for example it may show 110.28 GRFA John Smith which indicates that John Smith was the groom's father for the marriage which appears in Folio 110 entry 28. If John Smith's name did not appear in the Register, then it does not appear in the typed extracts -- but from other sources we believe John Smith was the father of the groom whose marriage is noted there.

The format of this index is: Folio Status Name.
"Status" is: BR-Bride GR-Groom WITN-Witness
BRFA - Bride's Father GRFA - Groom's Father
BRMO - Bride's Mother GRMO - Groom's Mother

Corrections: If we have missed including any we were given, our apologies. Any further corrections would be welcomed for a proposed ongoing database of marriages in Kent County or marriages of Kent County persons. [Date of Marriage, Place of Marriage, Names of Bride & Groom and of their parents; Source or Reference.]
