This Bible is the property of St. Paul’s United Church in Perth, Ontario. I have seen only the photocopy of the page of entries, so the publishing date is unknown, but the ornate design of this “Family Register” page is consistent with the mid- to late 19th century. Very small type at the centre bottom of the page reads “THE LONDON PRINTING AND PUBLISHING COMPANY” with “A.H. Wray” at the left margin and “J. Rogers, S.C.” at the right. Although the “Family Register” page is divided into three columns headed “NAME”, PLACE OF BIRTH” and “DATE AND REMARKS”, the entries ignore these very narrow columns and are written across the page.
