I wasn’t initially going to blog about Marriage Certificates, but in having more of a look at one of the Marriage Certificates I recently ordered (via the GRO). Then having look at the other Marriage Certificates I have (for my maternal grandfathers side), I’ve decided I WILL do a blog.
So far I have 8 Marriage Certificates
– 1 Marriage was in Delhi India (John Burdett Clark & Dorothe Verna Terry)
My Grandparents married in the Sacred Heart Cathedral according to the the Roman Catholic Faith.
– 3 in Yeovil, Somerset
One of the marriages took place at the Primitive Methodist Chapel and according to the Primitive Methodist faith
Two marriages took place at the South Street Chapel, one being of the Bapists faith the 2nd was Protestant? something. (James Hitchcock & Louisa Bishop)
One of the South Street Chapel Marriages is most interesting indeed!
This is due to the Marriage Certificate having FOUR witnesses.
Witnesses being – Sister to the groom, the fathers of the couple marrying
and the 4th looks like Robert Neal/Noel Woodley?
Here is the interesting marriage certificate (William John Clark & Eliza Brown)
– 1 Kent, some details for this Marriage is hard to read, such as the Chapel name and what the faith is. (George Clark & Sarah Ann Whitnall)
– 3 marriages took place in the Church of England, 2 in Southampton & 1 in Northampton
** Getting massively distracted looking at other stuff when I should really be doing this blog …. hahaha **
Anyway here are some links of interest about Yeovil, Somerset.
This is a great site I found while writing this blog post The A-to-Z of Yeovil’s History by Bob Osborn
This has a collection of photos of Yeovil – then & now
This is a other website that looks quite interesting Yeovil Baptist Church
That’s all for now, so till next time, stay tuned for some more Ancestry Adventures!
