Marriages after 1837

An example of marriage entries from the parish register of Haughton le Skerne, St. Andrew, 1879/80.

In 1837 new marriage registers were introduced which incorporated columns for the age of the spouses and for the name and occupation of each father.

Here is a page from Haughton le Skerne, St. Andrew's parish, showing marriages where both parties were of 'full age' (over 21 years of age).
