At the end of February Jean Bircham and I attended the Librarians’ conference, sponsored by OGS and The Ministry of Culture and Communications, at the Guild Inn in Scarborough. We both enjoyed the various sessions and the chance to talk to other members of the branches. Much information was learned and brought back to our own members. Jean and I would like to thank the Ministry of Culture and Communications and our Branch for the financial assistance to enable us to attend.
Many genealogists will be traveling throughout the country to do research on their families this summer. I wish you all success. I hope that any of the researchers that are in the Elgin County area enjoy the visit and find the information for which they are looking. There have already been several members from out of town (Oregon, B.C., Washington D.C. and elsewhere) researching in Elgin County these last few months. Some of the branch members will spend part of their summer working on future publication projects for the branch. Without the work that is done by these dedicated people, our branch would not be as successful.
In March the Elgin County Branch of The Ontario Genealogical Society celebrated the Tenth Anniversary. Presentations of certificates were given to Charter Members, Ten Year Continuous Members and Members who have donated their time and talent to the Branch’s success.
Have a great summer and I will be looking forward to seeing you in September.

EXTRACTS FROM REV. RICHARD ANDREWS’ MARRIAGE REGISTER 1840 – 1848 –
Extracted by Jean Bircham.
This record was found on microfilm reel Misc #001 at St. Thomas Public Library. It is a copy of the Rev. Richard Andrews’ diary of his voyage from England in 1831, marriage register 1840 – 1848, and school records from the St. Thomas area ca. 1835. The biography of Rev. Richard Andrews is taken from the “100th Anniversary of
Centre St. Baptist Church, 22 – 29 Oct 1939”.
Rev. Richard Andrews was the first Elder of St. Thomas Church. He was born in Holdsworthy, Devonshire, England. He attended both Oxford and Dublin Universities with a view to becoming an Anglican priest but, after graduation, he became a Baptist. Rev. Andrews was a pastor at Bishops Storford and ran a school there. In April 1831, he came to Canada. From 1831- 1833 Rev. Andrews conducted an academy in St. Thomas. The lack of students made him take up farming and he settled on the 10th concession of Yarmouth Township. Richard Andrews died 30 May 1849 at age 55 years and is buried at Talbotville Cemetery. His wife, Mary, died 26 January 1855 at 46 years of age and is buried in the same cemetery.
The St. Thomas Church was located on the northwest corner of William & Ann (now St. Anne’s Place) Streets. It was sold to Robert Blackwood 25 March 1880, used as a cider mill, and then sold to a Mr. Millman, a farmer from Dexter.
These baptisms are at the beginning of the diary.
