Newfoundland, Canada, Index of Birth, Marriage & Death Notices from Newspapers, 1810?1890

Name: Isabella Chancey
Gender: Female
Event Type: Marriage
Marriage Date: Abt 1873 (poss 30 Jan 1873)
Spouse : James O. Mellis (James A Mellis)
Spouse Residence: Torres, Scotland (Forres County: Moray )
Father: L. Chancey
Cleric 1 Name: Rev. T. Hall
Reference Date 1: 1 Feb 1873
Source: Morning Chronicle 1865-1881; Gazette (Royal Newfoundland Gazette) 1807-
Notes: Bride was the fourth daughter of the late L. Chancey of St. John's.

I think Isabella's parents are:

LIONEL Chancey
Birth 1782 in Harbor Grace, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
Death 1 Nov 1856 in St John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada

Elizabeth Knight
Birth 14 Feb 1809 in St John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
Death 1894 in St John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada

It might be worth researching further. I live in the UK and Canada records are not easy to find
