Clandestine Marriages Volume 1

 £10.00 
Clandestine Marriages Volume 1

Clandestine Marriages in the Chapel and Rules of the Fleet Prison 1680–1754 Volume One

by Mark Herber

With an introduction by John Titford

Paperback 128 pages with 3 illustrations in black and white
ISBN 978 0 953238 81 1

’If one wanted to marry in secrecy, perhaps being married already, pregnant, or in a hurry when a soldier or sailor had been posted abroad, this was the place to come... What a lustre could be given to a hitherto pedestrian family tree in finding an ancestor recorded here and how many hours could be spent wondering just what secret he or she had wished to conceal.’

Family Tree Magazine January 1999

The book

This volume is the first in a series of transcriptions of the registers of clandestine marriages which took place in and around the Fleet Prison in London between 1680 and 1754. Mark Herber describes the fascinating history of these marriages in his introduction and introduces the two registers transcribed here, covering the periods November 1736 to January 1754 and November 1736 to July 1748. The registers are published with the author’s explanatory notes, page references for the original documents at the Public Record Office, and an index of places and surnames.
