George Godfrey Quinton and Anna Maria Miller marriage likely Manitoba
« on: Saturday 02 February 19 19:59 GMT (UK) »
I am pretty sure I will never find this marriage as I believe the records may not exist or they never married

George Godfrey Quinton was married to Ellen Williams in 1870 in Ontario and they had 5 children the last one being Richard born 1881 in  the London Ontario area.

The family moves to Winnipeg Ellen dies of Typhoid in 1883

Anna Maria Miller arrives in Manitoba from Devon in 1891 and goes to her brothers in Brandon but she does not stay there long according to stories from aunts.   She comes to Winnipeg and gets a job as a housekeeper for George Godfrey Quinton
In 1894 their first child is born in Winnipeg which to me would make it most likely the marriage would take place in Winnipeg around 1892/1894

All their grandchildren insist their grandparents got married but I have been unable to find marriage for them under the full names or George and Annie so my feeling they never married at all or the records are destroyed.
I have checked with the Manitoba Government birth marriage deaths.
I have checked the Manitoba Archives and all types of religious denomination records
I have checked with the Manitoba Genealogical Society and absolutely no luck at all.

Annie was Anglican and George whose family was of Irish descent is also listed as Church of England (Anglican)

This message is for feedback mainly.

Do you think the odds are they never married and just said they did or the records have disappeared

Thank you

Jim

Not what you asked for but it mentions George Godfrey Quinton was the husband of Annie M Quinton  ???

Some Manitoba births, marriages, and deaths not recorded in vital records but may be in church records and more difficult to find.

Civil registration of births, deaths, and marriages began in 1882 in Manitoba. Because many individuals in the early years of registration did not comply, the records are somewhat incomplete up to around 1920

I had the copy of the Tribune  but thank you so much.
I posted my query on here also because I thought perhaps someone who did not belong to Ancestry may be tracing the same family and I had posted the Ancestry query in 2016 so gave it some time.

I think they were married and the records are lost or as you indicated difficult to find.  My aunt paid someone in the Anglican diocese of Rupertsland to have a look at their archives and they  came up with nothing

Your help was much appreciated.   Living in Winnipeg I have spent alot of time looking at records at the Manitoba archives and the Library.   It sometimes can be very hit or miss

Thanks again   It was much appreciated
