Findmypast has released one of the oldest genealogy record sets ever! It is a collection of marriage licenses from the Church of England (and prior to Henry VIII, the Catholic Church). The records go as far back as 1115. Can you believe it? 1115!
The 536,000 records in this collection come from fifteen different counties in England including London, Lancashire, Suffolk, Exeter, Lincoln and Yorkshire.
I don’t know about you, but I find this amazing! You can find the records here, and they are by subscription only. The database is searchable by first name, last name, year, place and county. The records typically contain information such as bride, groom, fathers of both and intended place of marriage. Happy searching!
