Discover whether your ancestor was married in Cambridgeshire between 1538 and 1973. Search 238, 987 records and find names, addresses and occupations of the bride and groom and their fathers. This collection is published in partnership with Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire Family History Society and the Family History Federation.
Each record will provide you with a transcript of the key facts from the original records. A small number of records will also provide you with an image. The details will vary depending on the age and condition of the original document. You will find a combination of the following facts:
Date of marriage
Bride’s father’s name
Bride’s father’s occupation
Groom’s father’s name
Groom’s father’s occupation
Was the marriage by licence or by banns
Names of witnesses (up to four)
The records with images were provided by The National Archives and created by the College of Arms, the official heraldic authority for England, Wales, Northern Ireland and much of the Commonwealth including Australia and New Zealand. The records will provide you with details found in the original parish register.
The Cambridgeshire marriage records cover about 80 parishes and other registrar places in the English county. The Cambridgeshire marriages records are part of our ongoing parish records collection project. This unique collection brings together the records of baptisms, marriages, burials and related records registered across England and Wales and has been made available on Findmypast in association with the Family History Federation's member societies, the Society of Genealogists as well as other individual organisations and contributors.
The Cambridgeshire parish records were transcribed by the Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire Family History Society. The records are transcript only which means they do not show an image of the original parish record but do contain every detail found there.
Cambridgeshire is a county in the east of England, bordering Lincolnshire to the north, Norfolk to the northeast, Suffolk to the east, Essex and Hertfordshire to the south and Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire to the west. The county town is Cambridge.
