Folks,
I have found my Smiths on 1861 UK census but need help with birthplace of his daughters;Arthur A Smith born 1832 Longbridge Deverill,Wiltshire is living in Lambeth with wife Mary,daughters Frances and Mary.Canada is part of place of birth but i can't make anything of the place name.
This is not critical to my line,just trying to tidy up loose ends.

I think it's Cobourg -- along the north shore of Lake Ontario east of Toronto.

Parish record. Civil registration did not begin in Ontario until 1869.
