Banns 1755-1863
Church Registers
St Andrew's Parish Church

NOTES:
The date shown here is the last (third) date of reading the banns,
not the date of the wedding.
Banns are an announcement made in a parish church of an intention to marry.
Banns must be read in the parish where both the bride and groom live plus the church where the marriage will take place if different. The banns need to be read for three Sundays before the wedding day.
In England, under the provisions of Lord Hardwicke's Act of 1753, from 1754 onwards a marriage would only be legally valid if the banns had been properly read.
The original spelling of names (as transcribed) has been retained.
In England and Wales, up to 1751, the New Year always began on
the 25th March (Lady Day).
(B.T.) indicates the entry as shown in the Bishop's Transcripts 1599-1812 where it differs from the entry in the local church register. For more details, see the original Introduction written by T.P.R. Layng in 1983 on the Parish Registers page.]
