Marriages

Marriages at Standish 1559 to 1812

Gloucestershire Parish Registers. Marriages. Edited by W. P. W. Phillimore, M.A., B.C.L., Vol VI. Issued to the Subscribers by Phillimore & Co., 124, Chancery Lane, London. 1900.

Author: Phillimore, W. P. W. (William Phillimore Watts), 1853-1913, ed; Blagg, Thomas Matthews.

Note. – The Standish Marriage entries are contained in four volumes, viz.,

Vol. I, 1559 to 1627

Vol. II, 1654 to 1690

Vol. III, 1691 to 1753, also 1763 to 1783

Vol. IV, 1754 to 1812

There is a double register of Marriages for most of the years from 1763 to 1783 in Vols. III and IV, the entries in the former being written by the Clerk, in the latter by the Vicar.

There are two large gaps in the Marriage Register, viz., from 1609 to 1621, and from 1628 to 1653, for which years no entries occur.

Besides these important omissions, the entries are wanting for the following years:

Vol. I, 1561, 1565-6, 1570, 1580, 1586, 1593, 1596, 1603-4.

Vol. II, 1661, 1681, 1683-4.1)

Vol. III and IV, 1765 and 1767.

The entries from 1559 to 1578 are dated by the regnal years of Elizabeth only; the order of some of these entries is irregular. Queen Elizabeth’s reign began, it is well to remember, on 17th November, so that every year of her reign runs from the 17th of November to the 16th of the following November. From 1578 the years of our Lord are given.

The following transcript has been collected with the extracts from the Bishop’s transcripts at Gloucester. Marriage entries marked with an asterisk are from the Bishop’s transcripts only.

A large number of the Marriage entries are of people belonging to Randwick, Saul, and Hardwick. To the two former Standish is the Mother Parish, and the latter is ecclesiastically united to it.

The marriage entries are mixed up with the Burials and Baptisms for most of the years from 1622 to 1754, a fact which has greatly added to the labour of transcription, and also the risk of omissions.

These Marriages have been extracted by the Rev. W. Symonds, vicar of Frocester, and are now printed under his supervision by permission of the Rev. Alexander Nash, M.A., vicar of Standish.
