Ireland Diocesan and Prerogative Marriage Licence Bonds Indexes 1623-1866

Did your ancestors marry in Ireland between 1623 and 1866? Did they get married by licence rather than by banns? Marriage licences were granted, on payment of a fee, by the ecclesiastical courts of the Church of Ireland. These Indexes, which survived the Public Record Office explosion of 1922, are a rare source of early records. They record Protestant marriages going as far back as 1623.
