British North America, and Captain General and Governor in
Chief in and over the Provinces of Canada, Nova Scotia,
New Brunswick and the Island of Prince Edward, and Vice Admiral
of the same, &c. &c. &c.

WHEREAS, Her Majesty has been graciously pleased to authorise me to grant
Licenses for the Solemnization of Marriages: AND WHEREAS

Samuel Lough of Buckingham in the Sydenham
District & Province aforesaid, Farmer &
Rebecca McClemont of the same place

are determined to enter into the Holy Banns of Matrimony, and are desirous of
having their Marriage publicly Solemnized ; in order that such their honest desires
may the more speedily have their due effect, and that they may be able to procure
the same to be lawfully Solemnized, without publication of Banns, I do hereby, for
good causes, give and grant this License of Faculty, as well to them the said Par-
ties contracting, as to all or every Parson or Minister, duly ordained, and lawfully
exercising his Ministry within that part of the Province of Canada, heretofore
constituting the Province of Upper Canada, to Solemnize and perform the same :
Provided always, that by reason of any Affinity, Consanguinity, Pre-contract, or any
other lawful cause, there be no legal impediment in this behalf, otherwise, if any
fraud shall appear to have been committed, at the time of granting this License,
either by false suggestions or concealment of the truth, that then this License shall
be null and void, to all intents and purposes whatsoever.

Given under my hand and Office Seal at Montreal
this 24th day of March
in the Year of our Lord, one thousand eight
hundred and forty-seven and of Her Majesty's
Reign the Tenth year.
