|Description:||1 microfilm textual records () ; 35 mm|
The Parishes of Charlotte County which had been established before 1839 include: St. Andrews, St. Stephen, St. George, St. Patrick, St. David, St. James, Pennfield, West Isles, Campobello, and Grand Manan.
The Register contains several hundred marriages which were performed by members of the clergy and by justices of the peace. The first forty-one entries from 1789-1806 contain only the name of the bride and groom and the date of the marriage. The amount of information in the record of each marriage after 1810 is fairly consistent and includes: the name and place of residence for both the bride and the groom; the location and date of the marriage; the name of the clergyman or justice of the peace who performed the ceremony, if the marriage was by licence or by the publication of banns; and the names of the witnesses. Additional information may include profession or religion of the groom; spelling of names as signed by groom or bride; "widow" or "spinster" status of the bride; and other various notations.
|Originals:||The original records are held by the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick.|
