Index to Crisps post 1837 Marriage Licence abstracts
During his lifetime the antiquarian Frederick Arthur Crisp built up a collection of over 20,000 original marriage licences that he obtained directly or indirectly from the parish clerks of various London churches. These were bound into 221 volumes and abstracts made of all their genealogical content. On his death the original licences were dispersed but some 38 volumes are now held at the Society of Genealogists.
A copy of the abstracts was presented to the Society’s library, and an index created for the post-1837 time period (typed by Dora Smith and edited by Neville Taylor). It is this index, which includes the surnames of both parties and the reference number to the abstract that is reproduced here. The abstracts are not available online but can be viewed in the Society’s library or ordered through their search and copy service (www.sog.org.uk/library/searches.shtml)
The abstracts can be found in the Middle Library (shelf mark: MX/R 335-340)
