"Away back when" - Wednesday, September 30th, 1885, was wedding day in Grimsby. Read what the Ed. had to say: Our quiet, aristocratic village was thrown into a flutter of excitement on Wednesday morning last, on the occasion of the marriage of two well known young ladies who have been in our midst from childhood up. The first of the weddings was performed at the Wesleyan Methodist church, the contracting parties being Miss Minnie Hawk and Mr. Charles Bishop. The ceremony was performed by a brother of the groom, the Rev. Mr. Bishop, assisted by the Rev. R.R. Maitland. A large assemblage of friends and acquaintances were present to witness the ceremony. The bride wore dark green and looked very pretty. The couple left for the west to spend the honeymoon, but their many friends at home hope that when they return much the larger portion will be yet to the good, for they are much esteemed by those who know them best, and the Independent joins heartily with their friends in wishing them fair weather and smooth sailing down the stream of life...[second wedding - Miss. H. Ruthven and Alfred Ball)
