A word of caution though. An ancestral file on familysearch has this so Adam mentioned above married Mary Beatty according to this.
This has not been substantiated though.

Using this page you can find a few records, Diana's death is on there but it's much more satisfying for you to look yourself.

There are no older Marchbanks in 1921 NB
(A slight lie, Fred's bro Harry s/o Adam Marchbank & Margaret Campbell is 7 h/h's after Fred & on same image)



NB The Canadian census nominal day was within a day of the UK's 1871-1901 and was in June 1906-1921.
I don't know when 1851 was, but this enumeration was completed by Oct 1851.
1861 varied by colony - it was 15/8/1861 in NB.
