As for the 1862 marriage ... that is before civil registration began in 1869.  The marriage record should be in one of the County Marriage Registers. 

Waterloo County is Volume 32.  The film reel numbers are here...about 2/3 of the way down the document

Have you tried your local family history centre?  They will likely have these in their collection.

Great find PB :)

Looks like the St. Andrews Presbyterian records aren't with the main set of records in the Ontario Marriage Registers. 

They are in the Church Records Collection at the Archives.

I can find the Ontario Marriage Registers (with images) on familysearch, but I don't see the Church Records Collection on familysearch.

Good thing PB found the transcript!!

baptisms on Scotlands people (Canonbie, Dumfries)
children of John Armstrong and Isabel Little
Thomas Armstrong 16 Apr 1824
Robert Armstrong 22 Jun 1826
Isabella Armstrong 1828

This would make Robert Armstrong 6 years older than he states on his death cert

Another Robert Armstrong was also born in Canonbie abt 1832, son of Robert and Margaret but he was a Mason's apprentice in 1851
Doubtful he is the same Robert but adding just to save further searches

1841
Chapel Hills Canonbie Dumfries
John Armstrong 45
Isabella Armstrong 40
Thomas Armstrong 15
John Armstrong Age 10
Julia Armstrong 7
Hugh Armstrong 4
1841
Barrascroft Outhouse Canonbie Dumfries
Robert Broatch   25
John Dalgliesh   35
Robert Armstrong 10 ag lab

1851
New Wood Head Dumbfries
Isabella Armstrong 54
Julia Armstrong   17
Hugh Armstrong   14

1851 Canonbie Dumbfries
John Slacks   64
Elisabeth Scott   54
Thomas Slacks   31
Robert Slacks   19
James Slacks   14
Margaret Slacks   27
Jane Slacks   23
Jane Routledge   5
Robert Armstrong 20 farm servant
James Armstrong   30 farm servant   <<< can't find him with parents or a baptism, unsure if he is another brother

Thank you all for your input on Robert and Euphemia.

Most of the emails confirm what I had already and that the information on quite a few of the Trees on Ancestry is incorrect. So it's good to know we're all in agreement.
But the new and most interesting find is from PB as this led me to his mothers name as Isabella Little  ;D which I have suspected, but unable to prove for the last 10 years. Thank you so much. :D That is what I have been waiting for.
BUT there is another puzzle - he has put himself down as coming from Cromerty in Scotland but there are no Roberts or any children born to a John A* & Isabel Little from there.
I had already narrowed him down to Dumfrieshire - even though his birth date is in 1826. But I have other pointers that it is most likely him.

I have been doing my research in association with the Armstrong Clan Association who have a vast database of Armstrongs.
I had suspected him as being the one in the 1841 Census at Barrascroft Outhouse and the one in the 1851 Census with the Slacks. Then he fell off the radar in the Census's.

The problem is he has only just come back on the radar again recently first in Canada then in the US through my DNA being a strong match with many, who have also done their DNA and  have him in their trees.
I am descended from him through my Gt Grandmother. She was born illegitimately in 1855. Both her parents were farm servants at a farm called Orchard in Canonbie at the time.

I am wondering if the birth difference was because he was away from home at an early age and didn't know his age and saying he was born in Cromerty defected away from him having an illegitimate child in Canonbie. But then that is just supposition! ???

I would still like to have a copy of the original marriage entry as even on the Site PB has given me the marriage date is different by 18 months to the Waterloo Generations Site. ???

Thank you all very much.
I am sure, as I suspected he is the son of the John A* & Isabella Little, born at Priorhill in 1826.

Meant to confirm he definitely isn't the son of John & Margaret - Mason's Apprentice as I have a death certificate in Scotland for him in Nov 1861.
I have also been able to rule out other Roberts out in the area by one mean or another.

Thanks

Iíve looked for a marriage for John and Isabella in Scotland and the NE England but no luck so far.

Robert left home very early but was still in the Canonbie area so if anything he would have used Canaonbie as place of birth. It might just have been misheard by the person completing the records who might not have totally understood his accent.

There is also a tree on FS for John Armstrong and Isabella Little but there a lot of assumptions

Thanks again.
I couldn't find a marriage either - again been looking for a few years but will look again. Quite a few of mine seemed to forget to get married!!!
Isabella Little was born illegitimately to a Helen Little - just can't put my finger on the record today - another to look for again.
