Description

Record of weddings performed by Gloria Dei Church from 1799 to 1856. Entries are listed chronologically, and page numbering starts over after October 1811.

Early entries span two pages and include the date of the wedding, the names of the bride and groom, and other information such as occupation, parents' names, birthplace, residence, and names of witnesses. Later entries are more abbreviated, often including only the date and names of bride and groom.

Alphabetical indexes appear within the text for dates from 1799 to 1811. Indexes for other years appear at the back of the book.

"Remarkable occurrences" are noted on images 175 to 190 and again on images 364 to 367, and include descriptions of couples who were refused marriage and the reasons for this refusal, including, for example, lack of necessary paperwork or witnesses, a young bride with no adult guardian present, or a very drunken bridegroom.
