The first names are given in Latin for the section of the marriage film used to create this index, surnames are written in English. Very few placenames are given in this section. They are not included here. The register also has the names of the sponsors or witnesses to the marriages. No guarantee is given as to accuracy of the folling index, it is possible that some entries have been missed. Spellings are as best read by the transcriber (Jane Lyons) but someone else might read them differently.
Index to Names found in the Roman Catholic Marriage Register 1851-1855
Sorted by Surname of Groom
There were approximately 95 marriages recorded in this parish over the period 13th January 1851-30th December 1855. Towards the end of 1855, there seems to be some confusion with the headers on the pages. The last page of any register for any parish which includes entries for more than one year usually has the two years written e.g. 1855/56. With this register, over the entries for December 1855 and January 1856 the years are written as above 1855/56. However, the next set of two pages also carries the same years, even though the dates are for February – the year headings seems to indicate that the records are for 1855 even though there were 1855 entries two pages back. This index has only used the entries up to the first December 1855. The register would have to be studied in greater detail to ascertain whether or not there actually are more entries for 1855.
