Letter dated Hull 23 Mar 1850 by RUGGLES WRIGHT to Clerk of the Peace, District of Ottawa, at Lorignal requesting a Certificate of Marriage between his brother TIBERIUS WRIGHT to NANCY CHAMBERLAIN (first wife). There is no evidence of a reply but it was: 9 Apr 1810. Ruggles, in his letter states he has a copy of the marriage certificate of his brother Tiberius to LOIS RICKER (second wife) which indicates they were married on 27 Mar 1819. Apparently Ruggles wrote another letter a week later saying he had received a copy of the marriage certificate of his brother’s first marriage, to Nancy Chamberlain, for which he paid $2.00. It would seem that he letters were drafts of those which were actually sent.

WRIGHT NOTEBOOK. This book, with ruled pages, has a wooden cover front and back to which are attached paper over covers in an oiled design. It has a leather spine. The measurements are 7½ x 6”. Page 1 is dated 1841. On the right of each page are three vertical red lines which suggests that the book was designed to be used for the inscribing pounds, shillings and pence (£ s d).
The first 34 pages have been used to record boarders’ names followed mostly with the number 3, under the days of the month (in column form) suggesting meals taken daily by men in a shanty environment.
Starting on page 37 the balance of the book has been used to record births, baptisms, marriages and deaths, mostly of the Wrights, but there are some other family entries. Some pages are loose but seem to be still present.
