Old Ottawa Weather Records

"A Merchants' Weather Record Won a Court Case for Railway" is an article in the Ottawa Citizen of 17 November 1928.

The weather records  mentioned, kept by storekeeper Alex Workman and his accountant partner William Whillans, apparently start in the 1840s. That's long before the earliest official weather data for Ottawa which commences in April 1872.

Do you know if these records, or any other early Ottawa weather records, have survived and if so where?
