Marriages

Marriages at Harescombe 1744 to 1812

Note. – The early Registers of Marriages in this and other parishes of small population in the vicinity of Gloucester, and formerly part of “The City and County of Gloucester”, are unfortunately missing.

Transcripts for certain years, however, are to be found in the Bishop’s Registry: the earliest date is 1569. These comprise the following years: - 1569-1578, 1610, 1617-8, 1622-5, 1628-9, 1632, 1638-9 (interval during the period of Civil Wars for which no transcripts are extant), 1672, 1679, 1680-3. It is hoped that at some future date it may be possible to print these transcripts.

Present Registers :-

1744-65. Period 21 years, marriages 31.

1766-91. 25 years, marriages 28.

1792-1814. 19 years, marriages 15.

These marriages have been extracted by the Rev. J. Melland Hall, the Rector of Harescombe, who has collated the proof with the Registers.
