The ages for him and Agnes match as do the ages of the first two girls. I have added the last two due to the census. Right "next door is another John Elliot married to anther Agnes. I am not sure who they are. On the other next door lot is a Beattie family.
He and his wife are frequently mentioned in Rev. Proudfoot's diary.

In the 1851 census for West Nissouri - taken on January 11, 1852 - there is a Henderson family on Lot 20, Concession 4. The father is John, 41, from Scotland. The mother is Janet, 39, from Scotland. There are seven children. Susan was 5 on her next birthday, i.e. she was 4 at the time which would make her the right age for this Susan. She also has a sister Catherine, who was going to be 8 in her next birthday. Given that Susan's parents were said to be John and Janet on her marriage licence, I feel strongly that this is her family.
In the 1881 census, there is a Mary Henderson, age 36 living with Edward and Susan. She is likely Susan's sister.

In the census taken on January 11, 1852, he was still a bachelor living on lot 1, concession 42, Westminster Township. He seems to be living with William and Isabella Taylor. As they are about twenty years older, are they the parents or uncle and aunt of his wife to be?
