London, England, Marriages and Banns, 1754-1921

This data collection contains marriage records and marriage banns dating from 1754-1921 from more than 10,000 Church of England parish registers (including Bishop’s Transcripts) from parishes in the greater London area that have been deposited at London Metropolitan Archives and those formerly held by Guildhall Library Manuscripts section. A full list of the Church of England parishes in London can be found in the more help section. These have been arranged in two ways, alphabetically by name and alphabetically by modern London borough.

It should be noted that some churches continued to record marriages in composite registers after 1753 and therefore you should also check Baptism’s Marriages and Burials 1538-1812.

Bishop’s Transcripts are copies of the original registers which were made annually and sent to the Bishop. They are particularly useful where original records either do not survive or in the case of many of the churches in the City of Westminster, are not held by London Metropolitan Archives. Records are typically arranged in chronological order and contain the following information:

Names of spouses
Fathers’ names
Marital condition
Rank or profession
Father’s rank or profession
Marriage date or dates of publication of banns
Marriage place (parish and county)
Whether married by license or by banns
