Marriage 318
By license in Dumfries on November 15, 1850

Andrew Scott and Jane Carrick, both of Dumfries.
Witnesses John Scott and William Carrick.

The above marriage registration is as it appears on the page of the First Church marriage book. By this time, Dumfries Township was divided into North Dumfries (Waterloo County) and South Dumfries (Brant County). Old Robert Carrick was still living at the time of the marriage. In all probability, the marriage was held at the home of the bride's father, which would have been in North Dumfries.

MarriageHe married Hannah Stewart, daughter of Thomas Stewart and Hannah Smith, on 25 December 1862 at South Dumfries Township, Brant County.

Andrew Scott, 36, born and residing S. Dumfries. Parents Will'm Scott and Jane Burnett.
Hannah Stewart, 31 last digit questionable, born and residing S. Dumfries. Parents Thos. Stewart and Hannah Smith.

The county marriages do not usually give exact locales of a marriage, but it was almost certainly in South Dumfries, either at the Presbyterian Church or at the bride's residence.

The witness, Alexander Buchanan, was married to Hannah's sister Margaret. That his residence is shown as Wilmot (Township) is a bit odd, for he was domiciled in North Dumfries Township in 1861 and in South Dumfries in 1871.
DeathHe died on 28 November 1910 at Galt, Ontario, at age 84. 
BurialHe was buried at Section 4, Mountview Cemetery, Galt. 
NoteAndrew's stone at Mountview gives his birth year as 1827, but the 1901 census reads 1826 as does his death registration.
