Treasure Chest Thursday - 1810 Marriage of Frederick Sovereen and Mary Jane Hutchison in London District, Upper Canada

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - a chance to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings.

The treasure today is the 1810 marriage record of Frederick Sovereen and Mary Jane Hutchison in the Early London District records (Upper Canada):

The transcription of this record is:

17 May 1810.  Frederick Sovereen Jr. of Charlotteville, yeoman, and Mary Jane Hutchison of Walsingham, spinster, by Thomas Welch JP.  witnesses John Backhouse, Cornelius Dedrick, James Hutchison, John Backhouse and Ephraim C. Mitchell.

The source citation for this record is:

Bill Martin, "Early London District [Ontario] Marriages," online database, Bill Martin's Genealogy Website ( : accessed 17 July 2019), Frederick Sovereen Jr. and Mary Jane Hutchison marriage entry.

This is a Derivative Source entry in an online database developed from transcribed records found at the Ontario Historical Society by Bill Martin.  I cannot find this specific record on FamilySearch in the Ontario District Marriages, 1801-1858, since their London District microfilm covers only 1833-1855.  The Ontario Archives or Ontario Historical Society may have this record.  

Frederick Sovereen and Mary Jane Hutchison are my 4th great-grandparents, through their son Alexander Sovereen (1814-1907) who married Elizabeth Putman (1818-1895) in 1840 in Norfolk County, Ontario.
