PREFACE

In certain cases the Marriage Licence Act Books for the period
covered by this volume only give the names (and sometimes-
only the surnames) of the recipients of the licences. Owing
to difficulties arising out of the war it has not been possible tO'
ampHfy such bare entries by reference to the bundles of Marriage-
Licence Bonds. It is desirable to draw the attention of members
to the fact that such reference will no doubt be again possible in
the near future upon application to the Diocesan Registrar and
payment of the customary fees.

For the convenience of readers the details are here repeated
of the Marriage Licence Act Books and Bonds now remaining in
the Diocesan Registry at Chester.

Dates of the Volumes of Marriage Licence Act Books now
remaining in the Diocesan Registry at Chester.

Vol. I. July i8, 1606, /o March 22, i6i5[-6]. (Vol. 53, Rec.

Soc. L. and C.)
„ II. April II, 1616, to May 17, 1624. (Vol. 56, Rec. Soc.

L. and C.)
„ III. May 18, 1624, to March 24, i63i[-2]. (Vol. 57, Rec.

Soc. L. and C.)

Hiatus March 25, 1632, to March 30, 1639.
„ IV.i March 30, 1639, ^^ October 21, 1644. (Vol. 61, Rec.

Soc. L. and C.)

Hiatus October 21, 1644, to June 22, 1661.
„ V. June 22, 1661, to February 8, i666[-7]. (Vol. 65,.

Rec. Soc. L. and C.)

^ The entries at the end of this volume following the entry of licence (John
Baxter and Dorothy Brooke) on the 27th June 1642, and extending to
2ist October 1644, appear to have been irregularly entered, and probably
do not include all the licences issued for this period.

Vol. VI. February 9, i666[-7], to March 24, 1679H0]. (Vol.
69, Rec. Soc. L. and C.)
„ VII. April 6, 1680, to December 27, 1694. (April 6, 1680-

„ VIII. March 25, 1695, to August 31, 1700.
Hiatus August 31, 1700, to 171 9.
From this date it became the custom to enter up the licences
in the Act Books as and when the affidavits were returned into
the Registry by the Surrogates. The dates therefore overlap a
good deal; this is especially the case between the dates 1733
and 1772.

From January i, 1838, to the present day the Act Books are
complete.

The original Marriage Licence Bonds begin in 1661 and are
filed in bundles for each year.

The documents at Chester only relate to licences affecting
residents within the ancient Archdeaconry of Chester, i.e.
all Cheshire, Lancashire south of the Ribble, and the
Welsh parishes of Bangor Deanery. The licences for the
Archdeaconry of Richmond are at Lancaster.
