Marriages at Mickleton 1594 to 1812

Note. – The Mickleton marriages 1594-1812 are in five volumes of the parish register. The first of these is numbered 3, No. 1 being the earliest register of Aston Subedge, which is still at Mickleton, and No. 2 being the first register of Ebrington, which has been restored to its proper place. Down to 1754 the marriages are in the same books with the baptisms and burials. After Lord Hardwicke’s Act in that year they are in separate volumes, IV (6) and V (8). This transcript has been prepared by Mr. S. G. Hamilton, of Hertford College, Oxford, and is now printed under his supervision by the permission of the Revs. W. V. B. Perry and A. M. Coxwell-Rogers, successively Vicars of Mickleton.
