Description

This certificate bears witness to the union of Henry Martyn Belcher and Jessie Sloane Notman. Dated 1884, it is signed by Quebec Lieutenant-Governor Théodore Robitaille.

Jessie Sloane Notman (1859-1942) was the third child of William Notman, founder of the William Notman photographic studio in Montreal, and Alice Merry Woodwark (1832-1906). In 1884, Jessie married Henry Martyn Belcher (1856-1923) at St. Martin's Anglican Church in Montreal. Reverend Samuel Belcher, the father of the groom, celebrated the marriage.

Jessie and Henry had seven children: Frederick Gordon (1885-1970); Alice Dorothy (1887-1946); Henry Lawrence (1889-1946); Charles Stuart (1891-1917); Edith Constance (1893-1971); Leslie Kenneth (1895-1918); and William Vincent (1901-1957). Jessie Sloane Notman was widowed in 1923 and died in 1942 at age 83.
