Looking at the 1881 census of PEI there were an incredible number of 'Perry's', mostly French Acadian. I have never heard of Perry as an Acadian name. I suspect that the name should be Poirier. The IGI does give Mélème Poirier b. ca. 1828, m. 11JAN1848 Barbe Bernard, the son of Moise and Marie (Gaudet) Poirer. Moise was the s/o Basile, s/o Pierre, s/o Ambrose, s/o Michel, s/o Michel, s/o Jehan b. France ca. 1626 and probably the founder of the family in North America. (Jehan was an early version of Jean.)
for more on Barbe Bernard's family.
In the baptismal records mention, the surname is usually Perry, and Barbe is often Barbara. Mélème is often Melene. As well as Margaret there were:
Paschal b. 14NOV1850, bpt. 19NOV1850
Celeste b. 15DEC1853, bpt. 15DEC1853
Mary b. 20FEB1855, bpt. 21FEB1855
Judith b. 9JAN1857, bpt. 10JAN1857
Moses b. 25FEB1859, bpt. 26FEB1859
Philomene b. 26NOV1862, bpt. 30NOV1862
Emelie b. 7MAY1865, bpt. 11JUN1865
Henrietta b. 1OCT1870, bpt. 6OCT1870
Peter b. 25DEC1872, bpt. 5JAN1873
Usually if a child was baptized almost immediately there was some concern that it might die.
