No family member witnessed the marriage for some reason. The witnesses were a Mary Johnson and a Charlotte Smith. Both were of London. The offciant was Robert Johnson, so perhaps one was his wife or daughter. They were married by license. The marrige was registered on June 17, 1902, as number 011606 for the City of London.

Note N1050 Index
I was unable to find the marriage at first. That was due to it being under the name of John Finners or Finius
It was preformed as indicated on April 2, 1879. It was recorded as number 6 on page 280. John's age was correct as was his place of birth. Her brother John and his wife Isabella were the witnesses. The marriage was performed by the Reverend J. B Cutler.
I have still not found the family in the 1881 Ontario census, so I tried both of the above names. They were not there under either name.
Note N1051 Index
The marriage was performed in the Church as noted. The witnesses were Joseph Allely and Mary Martin. Margaret Allely signed with an "x". His profession was noted as "oiler", whatever that was. He was living at 64 Cumberland St. in Belfast. She was living at 43 Penrish St. in Belfast. His father was shown as a labourer and hers as a shoemaker. Robert Hannay performed the ceremony in accordance with the rites of the Church of Ireland.

Their marriage apparently does not appear in the parish register for the church in Lanreath, although it might just have been missed by Frederick Hancock who was the one who researched the records. As he says, it also might mean that they married in a non conformist Church.
Note N1053 Index
This marriage is found in the parish records for Broadoak, Cornwall, England or at least it is in the transcribed "vestry" records found on LDS film # 0916967, item 3. The WFT family (#2637) from which I took the information for Isaac had the same information for the date of his marriage and his wife's name but not the other facts noted including the names of the witnesses as Nicholas Haley and James Nichols. As well, Isaac was noted as a sojourner. I am not sure if this means simply that he did not live in the parish or that he literally was a traveller. There is another marriage of a Haly sojourner - Elizabeth - in 1785. Was she his sister? Were they living in Boconnoc by then?

According to the Haley family history, this couple settled near Flint Michigan.
Note N1055 Index
The date of the marriage is taken from the County Marriage registers of Ontario, Vol. 17 for Perth County compiled by Elizabeth Hancocks in 1986. This marriage in found on page 46. I am interpreting Fullarton as the place of marriage; it may be just where he is from. The presiding clergy man was Campbell
Note N1056 Index
The witnesses to the marriage were Elizabeth Haley (my great grandmother) and Thomas Bridgeman (groom's brother). The presiding minister was John Wakefield.
Note N1057 Index
Their marriage is registered as 00868 in the 3d volume of 1879 for Perth County, Blanchard Township at page 338. He is 22, she 21. He is from West Nissouri, she from Blanchard. He is a farmer. His parents are those noted on the family page, hers are now noted there too. They are both noted as being born in Ontario but, of course, it was Canada West at the time they were born.
