John Curtain, a negro, of the City of Quebec, labourer, single man, aged twenty three years, was married (by banns duly published), to Mary Peters, a negro woman, of the same city, spinster, aged nineteen years, this twentieth day of February, in the years of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixteen.

Contracting parties John Curtain his mark + Mary Peters her mark +
Present Paul Cremer his mark + John Lewis his mark + Ann York her mark + ».
Noter que la célébration de ce mariage a été faite après la publication de bans et que le nom des parents des époux n'est pas indiqué, une situation qui complique singulièrement l'identification correcte de ces derniers.
