INTRODUCTION.

tl-t5949

Some years since the Editor of these Allegations published

in the Surrey Archceological Society's Collectioiis (vol. xi. p. 204,

.^ &c.) a number of Licences granted for various purposes

Vrt (including Marriage), which he had found recorded at the

^ reverse end of a volume of Probate and Administration Acts

\ pertaining to the Commissary Court of Surrey, and preserved

I amongst the Surrey Wills at Somerset House.

^^ The discovery of these records led him to make further

^ enquiries, and he then ascertained that there were other

^documents of the same Court in the custody of the Registrar

^^;X^ of the Faculty Office, in his capacity as Registrar of the late

Commissary Court of Surrey.

The series is unhappily incomplete, and the papers — with

s,^ the exception of those contained in one volume kept at the

\r Surrey Registry — are stowed away in bundles at the Collegiate

^Church of St. Saviour (now the Cathedral), Southwark. For

all earlier documents than 1763 there was no index whatever.

Omitting those included in the series in Surrey Archceo-
logical Collections already alluded to as covering the years
1662-1665, the earhest book in the Surrey Registry is a bound
volume of Marriage Allegations of the Commissary Court of
Surre)', which begins abruptly without any title or preamble
with an entry, "6 Junij, 1674," Phillpott and Rufifhead, and
ends with "8'-'' Feb., 169J," Best of Horley and Cudington of
Leigh. It measures 13 by 8^ outside cover, and I2| by 7J
inside.



INTRODUCTION.



The first entry, wliich is printed in full {Sif page l), is
sometimes varied in the latter part of the form by the
expression, "and of the truth of the pmisses he made oath,"
or, " he offered to make faith," or, " of tlic truth of the pmisses
he made faith."

The allegations are only sometimes made by one of the
parties to the marriage. This is often done by the Vicar of
the parish, or by the Parish Clerk, or by a Yeoman, or (as in
Oct., 1678) by a woman, e.g., Ursula Moorhousc, wife of
John Moorhouse, Minister of Epsom.

But after 1724, if not earlier, the practice seems to iiavc
been as in the present day, viz., that one of the contracting
parties must make the declaration.

The principal Proctors at this early period .seem to have
been " Samuel Wyseman, Gent., one of the Procurators of
the Arches Court of Can^ ; " John Burnett, " of Drs. Coinons,
Gent." (30 Aug., 1675); John Mills, "one of y' proct" of y"
Arches Court of Canterbury " (Feb., 1675-6); John Shorter, "of
Drs. Coinons, Gent." (14 Nov., 1676); Peter Barrett, "of Drs.
Coinons, Gent." ; John Shorter, Notary Publique, " one of
the proctors of the Consistory Court of Winton " (January,
1677-8); Joseph Williams, Notary Publique, "one of the
proctors of this Court " ; Roger Newbury, of Drs. Commons,
London {27 July, 1680); Richard Evans, "of Drs. Coiiions,
Gent."; William Reve, "of ffarnham, Gent." (7 July, 1684);
Charles Armitt, of St. Gregory's, London, Gent. (20 Sept.,
1688), of Drs. Coinons (23 Feb., 1690-1); Step" Barker, of
St. Martin, Ludgate, London (19 Aug., 1689); and Richard
Harris, of Drs. Coinons, Gent. (20 Jan., 1684-5), perhaps
the same who is described as "of Bansted, Gent." (7 April,
1688). He issues by far the greater number.

Of Parish Clerks who apply for licences, we find the names
of Ralph Smith, Parish Clerk of St. Saviours, Suutiiwark ;



INTEODDCTION. iii

Thomas Williams, Parish Clerk of St. Mary Magdalene,
Bermondsey; Thomas Palmer, Parish Clerk of St. Olave's,
Southwark; John Mackorn, Parish Clerk of Camberwell
(ii Dec, 1688); Samuel White, Parish Clerk of St. Nicholas
Cole Abbey; Edward Calcott, Parish Clerk of St. Magnus
the Martyr. In one case the necessary declarations appear to
have been made by Henry Turner, the Sexton of St. Saviour's,
Southwark (5 Dec, 1689).

Following the Allegations 1662-1665, there is a gap until
the first entry in the volume just described, and again after
the last in that book (8 Feb., 169^). None are known to exist
until the year 1724, if we except one single allegation for
1709. From the former date (1724) they are mostly in files
or bundles and have suffered terribly from damp, dust, dirt,
the ravages of mice or rats, and the neglect of past generations.
Indeed, the i8th century appears to have been one of the worst
for all kinds of records ; quite as much injury seems to have
been caused by the indifference of the proper custodians of
that time, as in other ways during the earlier centuries.

It is a singular circumstance that the same gap is found in
the Testamentary Division of the Commissary Court of Surrey
as in the Marriage, only in the former case the Registration
of the Wills appears to have been omitted, whilst the originals
were duly filed ; in the latter both Register and Allegation are
alike wanting. . Probably it will never be known what has
become of them, unless they should be unexpectedly discovered
like those in the Appendix. From 1724 the records are con-
tinuous until the present day.

As some of those who consult this book may have never
seen the form in which the Allegations are set forth, one is here
reproduced as nearly as possible like that used about 1768, and
specimens are given of Bonds in 1737 and 1767.

After the passing of Lord Hardvvick's Act to prevent
clandestine marriages, it was enacted " that no Licence of
Marriage is to be granted after 25 March, 1754, in any other
Church or Chapel than in the Parish Church or Publick Chapel
of or belonging to the Parish or Chapelry within which the
usual place of abode of one of the persons to be married shall
have been for the space of four weeks immediately before the
granting of such licence."

No mention of the length of residence, nor indeed of any
time is found in the earlier allegations, but the requisite period
was reduced to fifteen days by 4 Geo. IV. c. jd, section 10.

The preparation of this work has occupied the Editor
during such time as he has been able to spare from other and
pressing engagements for several years : every care has been
exercised to prevent errors, but in a book containing between
nine and ten thousand Allegations, and including the Bonds,
involving the examination of nearly twice that number of
documents, it is probably impossible to prevent some few errors
creeping in. It is hoped, however, these are very few.

Concerning the social position of the parties married, there
are several Peers, sundry Esquires, many Clergymen, Gentlemen,
Merchants, and Yeomen, but the moet part belong to the trading
and working classes.

There are some curious and uncommon Christian names
from Biblical and Classical sources ; amongst those of
females, Achsa, Adeliza, Aphara, Anastasia, Aquila, Avarillar,
Bathana, Bedia, Bethia, Cassandra, Caroline-Shepherdess, Celeste,
dementia, Damaris, Dionisia, Dufiner, Dulcibella, Eleanor,
Emmaritta, Emlin, Euphemia, Grachauna, Gratitude, Hephzibah,

Edward Barnard of Eton, Headmaster 1754, Fellow of
St. John's, Cambridge, Canon of Windsor 1761, Provost of
Eton 1764; Edmund H. Chishull of Horley (fine ledger to
his wife in floor of Church there); Philip Carteret Webb, F.R.S.,
F.S.A., of Godalming, Solicitor to the Treasury, 1756-1765,
M.P. for Haslemere; Rodgers of Mickleham, Rev. Henry
Miles, D.D., of Tooting, William Bray of Guildford, afterwards
of Sheere, the County Historian ; Rev. Claudius Bridger, Jacob
Burnap, and Hon. Bridgetta Maria Power.

Two instances of Fleet Marriages are found amongst
the Licences, viz., one on 8 June, 1749, and the other on
14 May, 1753, Sproule = Mochen.

The old spelling of words and the names of towns and
villages has in many instances been preserved, even where to
modern eyes such spelling seems wrong — sometimes this has
been amended when the name appears several times in an
Allegation, by printing it on the second or third occasion
according to the way it is usually now written ; there are also
some glaring instances in which a town or village is as.signed to
the wrong county. These are given as they were found without
correction.

About 1770 the farce was enacted of substituting the
names of John Doe and John Roe, fictitious persons, as second
sureties, and their supposed signatures were actually appended
in the hand of the person who filled up the Allegation (the
Surrogate).

A few words in explanation of some abbreviations :
s., surety ; ss., sureties ; " mark," makes his or her mark ; " both
sign " or " both mark," signifies that both the appearer (one of
the contracting parties) and the second surety do this, and
never the other party to the contract, unless it should be in
some isolated case where the contracting parties are themselves
the only sureties. The word " at " always precedes the name



X rNTRODOOTION.

of the place or places where the marriage may be celebrated.
"Abode 3 months," "abode 4 weeks," does not necessarily
imply that the person named had only lived there for that
period, but that he or she had conformed to the Act. The
Editor has not always noted whether the appearer and sureties
sign or make their marks ; it is not therefore to be assumed
that they did not, because not stated in every instance.

The Editor cannot conclude without acknowledging the
great courtesy he has always received during the preparation of
this work from Mr. W. P. Moore, Registrar of the Court of
Faculties, and Registrar of the Commissary Court of Surrey,
who has permitted him unlimited access to the Records ; also
from his nephew, Mr. Arthur Wm. Dodwell Moore, his Associate
at the Faculty Office ; nor must he omit to mention the willing
assistance which Mr. B. B. Bull, his chief clerk, has been ever
ready to render, whether in searching amongst the chaos of
documents at Southwark, or in deciphering a doubtful name.

The Editor hears with pleasure that a proper Muniment
Room for these Records is in course of erection at Southwark.
