Repertoire des Mariages du Comte Compton
Compton County: Catholic Churches, marriages (1858-1950), 348 pages. Compton County is an historical county in southeastern Quebec, Canada on the western flanks of the Appalachian Mountains on the US-Canadian border. It is in the Estrie (Eastern Townships) region of the province and was named in 1893 after a town in Surrey, England by British officers who were convinced of the agricultural potential of the area. The county seat is Cookshire. Mount Megantic (altitude 1111 m) has an observatory operated by the UniversitÃ© de MontrÃ©al at its peak, which is accessible only from an adjacent county. In the early 1980s the County was dissolved, most of it becoming part of the MRC de Le Haut-Saint-FranÃ§ois except for the southern portion which went to MRC de Coaticook.
