      Hello Michael,

      St. Patrick's opened in 1847 but did not keep its own registers until 1859.
      The McCaffrey/Stewart marriage record as well as the baptism records would
      be kept at Notre Dame Basilica, 116 Notre Dame Street West, Montreal Quebec
      H2Y 1T2. tel. 514-849-1070.
      Your translation has some errors. In line one it should read "after
      publication of three banns", the last line probably would read somthing like
      "have declared that they cannot sign".
      I will try to answer your questions;
      1)The marriage did take place at St. Patrick's, Father J.J. Connolly was the
      Parish Priest at that time. The Church kept two sets of registers, one
      would be sent to the Courthouse at the end of a year and one would be kept
      at the Diocese. 2)The registers never mention the parents when there is a
      previous marriage.
      3)Try Notre Dame for the children.
      4)I don't think he married between St. Patrick's Day and St. Jean Baptiste
      Day but who knows.

      I have more information for you. Though we do not have the registers here at St. Patrick's, we do have the banns books that the priest would use to announce the impending marriages from the pulpit. The marriage is there, Patrick Stuart is 31 years old and has been in Montreal since St. Patrick's Day. Margaret Crane is described as deceased at Buanaport? Boneparte?(Beauport?), Van Burren County, Iowa, her death is attested by Dr. Wyman and Allen?, Patrick is living at "one Mrs. Cassidy's." Ann McCaffery is 23 years old and has been in Montreal since June. Both her parents are dead and they appear to be from a place called Dromerlan, Dromerton ???
      A photo-copy may be obtained from us for a fee of $10.

      Good Luck with your research.
      With best wishes,
      Mary [McGovern]

      To: (Michael Brown)
      Hi Mike,
      I'll try to answer your questions:
      A) The banns are announced from the pulpit and are posted in the Church for the three Sundays that proceed the wedding.
      B) The way the banns book reads that Patrick Stuart arrived in Montreal on March 17, 1851 and married on St. Jean Baptiste day (June 24th) of the same year. Therefore it is highly unlikely that he could have married in Montreal between his marriages to Margaret Crane and Ann McCaffrey
      C) You have a choice, either Ann just arrived in Montreal, which would be my guess, or she was here for a year. Prehaps Patrick came here first to establish himself and then Ann joined him. Maybe she was straight off the boat and Patrick looked like a good prospect?
      D) It means they were illiterate.
      E) My first guess would be Ireland.
      Hope this helps,
      Mary McGovern
