Rather typically, for this era of marriage registrations, there are two. Usually, one was written at the county level and one at the township level. Probably, this is what we have for the marriage of John and Emily, and, at a guess, one of the documents was copied from the other. The earlier of the two had no metallic number stamp applied by the Archives of Ontario, and, usually, the later one did. In this case, neither registration bears the metallic number stamp - for which reason, it's guesswork to tell which one was written first. One registration, which is ill written, shows the grooms name as Histood. The other, better written, shows the name as Histool. This also shows the bride's mother's name as Maria.

The problems with the groom's surname and the bride's mother's given name will have to do with the township clerk transcribing the clergyman's handwriting. That Emily was born in Walpole is probably correct. This is a difficult one to mess up, handwriting-wise, and she will have given the information herself.
