Description for Allegations for Marriage Licenses issued by the Vicar General of the Archbishop of Canterbury 1679-1694 (England)

In 1886 the Harlein Society issued a Volume which contained Allegations for Marriage Licenses issued by the Vicar-General of the ArchBishop of Canterbury between 1660 and 1679. It was printed from one of the late Colonel Chester’s Manuscripts, and (though unfortunately, it was not a complete transcript) it included, as he stated, “all except those of persons evidently of the very humblest rank.” The Allegations for Marriage Licenses contain records from 1679-1694.

Description for Familiae Minorum Gentium, Volumes 1-4 (England)
Familiae minorum gentium was written by Joseph Hunter and contains records from 1894-1896. The database contains a “thick folio volume of some 650 pages completely filled with pedigrees, chiefly of Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Cheshire, and Lancashire families, though of course their branches extend over other counties. Mr. Hunter, by reason of his large genealogical acquaintance and also of his connection with the leading Unitarian families of the day, had the opportunity of gathering together such a mass of information that this book has perhaps been as much consulted as any work of a similar character in the [British] Museum.” -Taken from the Preface, written by the book’s editor John W. Clay.

  1. Judy Wester says:

    My grandmother, Martha Pattishall, is the daughter of Robert Pattishall and Jane Greenleafe

    Or

    Martha is the daughter of Samuel and a woman from the west Indies.?

    How much would it cost to find out if I have West Indies blood.
