The period covered is that immediately preceding the introduction of civil registration in the jurisdiction of England & Wales in July 1837. This record set enables those with roots in the county of Huntingdonshire to take back their research another two or three generations.
Each entry records the names and the date and place of marriage, sometimes with additional information, such as marital status, parish of origin (if not “of this parish”) and/or occupation. Registers of this date were often silent on these matters.
These records were compiled by the genealogist T P R Layng in 1981, using original parish registers and supplemented by bishop’s transcripts where appropriate (for instance, for the parishes of Brington, Colne and Grafham).
Similar and related surnames were grouped, on the grounds that spelling was not necessarily settled or consistent at this period. For example, you might see the surname cluster “Russell, Russel, Rossil and Rosel”. Please note that the transcription does not indicate which spelling was used in the original register.
