This publication gives details of Marriages from the following sources: Bishop of London's Office 1521 to 1828, Dean and Chapter of Westminster's Office 1599 to 1699, Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury 1543 to 1869, Vicar-General's Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury 1660 to 1679.
This publication is based on the transcriptions of Colonel Chester who saved these entries from obscurity when he discovered a huge number of unindexed marriage records in Latin. This work was then published by Joseph Foster in alphabetical order in 1887. It contains over 800 pages of entries. The record of these marriages often eludes those tracing a family name because the marriages were scattered geographically.
Please note: that those that were married in London came from all over England. Entries are arranged alphabetically by surname for easy reference.
