London Marriages Licences for Kent - 1521 to 1869
There was (and still is) two ways that a couple could get married in The Church of England or Church in Wales.
A notice was read out in church for three consecutive Sundays before the marriage, which gave others the opportunity to object to the marriage.
A licence was issued by the Bishop, which gave a couple permission to marry either:
In a church in a parish where neither of them lived
In a hurry - as there was no need to wait for 3 weeks.
Occasionally a marriage in church may take place with a certificate issued by the Civil Superintendent Registrar.
