Yes, the only English River in both of these provinces would be the Churchill. I live about 30 feet from that river, and know the history pretty well. This was a major Fur Trade route from Montreal to the Athabasca region and Northwest Territories. Because of the time period, and the nationality of your ancestors, there are two probable places they would have been during that time period. I mention the Anglican Church first because he was married. You could contact the Anglican Church of Canada by email at: information@national.anglican.ca

The second place would be the Hudson's Bay Company Archives. Their web page is at: http://www.gov.mb.ca/chc/archives/hbca/index.html Most HBC employees were single men, but a few locations were staffed by men and their wives. The HBC will take a request for info but they are rather slow, i.e. 6 weeks.
Hope this helps,
John Leclair
