In May 2005, five additional documents were discovered and put online at the Trent Archives' website. Four of the documents are lists of marriages, not included in the Walker-Molotkow Marriage Registers, so it is presumed that they were not included in the Archives of Ontario registers. They are copied below with the original spelling. A marriage listed in the Newcastle District by Thomas Bevitt, St. Catharine's, Minister of the Wesleyan Methodist Church in Canada, filed 04 July 1825, is as follows:

  • Choate, Nathan and Melicent Boyce; witnesses Aaron Choate and Thomas Choate, Hope, license - 27 May 1825
A list of marriages by James Douglass, Presbyterian Minister, Cavan, filed 23 March 1849 is as follows:
  • Herron, John, Township of Hope & Eliza Mitchal, Township of Manvers; witnesses Alex'r Lethangin & John Fife, "special license" - 26 January 1847
  • Henderson, William & Ellen Hislop, Hope; witnesses William Litle, Monaghan & J. Conoly, Hope, "special license" - 6 March 1847
  • Sharp, Adam & Elizabeth Wood, Hope; witnesses James Gray & Rob't [McCarruss], "special license" - 28 September 1847
  • Magill, Samuel, Manvers & Mary Byers, Hope; witnesses Rob't Byers & James Magill, "special license" - 30 September 1848
