Peckover in central Wellington county, Ontario, 1840s

As I researched my French line, moving from Aynho, Northamptonshire, to Guelph Twp., Wellington County, Ontario (1842) I noted in both the Aynho and Guelph parish registers many of the same odd surnames (Peckover, Elkerton, Borton, Bye, etc.). So here is some Peckover miscellany in case it's of use to anyone:


Daniel Peckover (signs Pecchover) is a witness with Henry Blinco to the marriage on 3 Dec 1846 at St George's, Guelph, of James Borton and Fanny French of Guelph Twp.

Benjamin Howse and his wife Anne Peckover have a daughter Mercy baptised at St George's on 14 Jun 1846 by the Rev'd Arthur Palmer. (There are also two Howse children buried in 1849, Jane aged 10 weeks on 23 Jan, and Mary aged 2y 9mo. on 9 Feb, but no parents' names are given.)


Samuel son of Daniel and Frances Peckover, farmer, res. Pilkington Twp., born 24 Sep 1858, baptised 26 Dec 1858, sponsors George Howse, Henrietta Thackery. By the Rev'd C. E. Thomson.
