Published by the Harleian Society 1886, and titled "Marriage Licences Issued from the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury at London 1543-1869" these are licences granted to marry in places all over Great Britain. Some examples are listed below.

‘Jan 14 1665 - Richard Holford, of Lincoln's Inn, bachelor, 29, & Sarah Crew, of St. Martin in the Fields, Middlesex, spinster, about 16, her father dead, & she in custody of her aunt Jane Struttey of Westonburt, co. Gloucester, who consents; at St. Paul's Covent Garden, Middlesex.’

‘July 24 1796 - John Quincy Adams, Esq., of Boston in North America, Bachelor, above 21, & Louisa Catherine Johnson, of All Hallows, Barking, London, spinster, above 21; at All Hallows Barking aforesaid’.

’March 17 1698 - Henry Heylin, of parish of St. John Baptist, co. Hereford, Esq., bachelor, 40, & Ann Cooke of Churcham, co. Gloucester, spinster, 30, at her own disposal; alleged by Robert Cooke, of Bishop's Cleeve, co. Gloucester, Clerk; at Llanvyhangell, co. Monmouth.’

It is records such as these that are of immense value to family historians! A couple, one from Herefordshire, the other from Gloucestershire, who were issued with a licence in London to marry in a parish church in Monmouthshire, Wales. That will certainly knock down the brick wall in someone's research. It isn't at all difficult to find such instances. The books are full of them!

Please note: this CD says it contains Marriage Licences until 1869. We have found that the later years in particular are very sparse for this period.

High quality scanned images of the whole of the original book. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be browsed, enlarged and printed out if required. Please note this CD is not searchable.
