Maghera Presbyterian Marriage Notices

Maghera Presbyterian Marriage Notices (1857-1860) were a legal requirement that before a marriage licence could be issued one of the parties to be married needed to appear in person with the minister authorised in the presbytery to issue marriage licences and supply details of both parties to be married. This register is useful because sometimes it records the ‘home’ townland of one of the parties, whereas the Marriage Register entry might record New York, or Canada, Glasgow or Belfast (depending on where they were living before coming home to¬†getting married). Also it records how long they’ve lived in that place, etc.
