Brant County Marriage Register

Extracted from a list of marriages solemnized by Rev. Peter Kerr, Wesleyan Minister, this entire list being for the year ending 31st day of December, A.D. 1860

Rev. Wm. Hay, 28, born Scotland, residing Paris. Parents Robt. and Janet Hay.
Mary C. Stevenson, 21, born and residing Blenheim. Parents Benj. and Catherine Stevenson.
Witness L. Pierre of Dumfries.
On June 19, 1860.

The entire list of marriages was submitted by W. J. Griffith, Wesleyan Methodist minister, but he notes that the first four marriages were performed by Rev. Peter Kerr.

The surname of the witness is almost illegible, but 'Pierre' seems a reasonable interpretation. The difficulty is that no one with the surname Pierre is to be found in either the 1851 or 1861 censuses of the two Dumfries townships, North or South.
