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 title 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.
Biss, Edward (Bisse), of St. Leonard Eastcheap, London, bachelor, 26, and Sarah Rudge, of St. Andrew, Holborn, spinster, 20, with consent of her mother Mrs. Martha Rudge, now wife of Edward Lewis, attested by Edward Lewis, of St. Andrew, Holborn, gent. - at St. Mary Magdalen, Old Fish Street, London, or . . . . 13 Oct. 1802.

Richard Head, of same, gent., who consents - at St. Leonard, Eastcheap, London. 29 Sept. 1662. F.

Interesting but what I did not expect was that I would need to go somewhere else to continue the search.
It is a excellent book for the following reasons:
1. It is in alphabetical order which makes it easy to search for information.
2. Each entry has a lot of relevant information such as where the person was from, their status ie single, both given and surname for husband and wife, and date of marriage. It also states whether the wife had her father's consent to the marriage.
3. It covers a very long period of time i.e 1521 to 1869.
