Brailsford Marriages

These transcriptions of Brailsford family marriages are all taken either directly from the parish register or are from reliable published transcripts. I have concentrated on collecting marriages before Lord Hardwick's Marriage Act of 1754. After that date the recording of marriages is much more reliable and the detail becomes standardised.

1. Derbyshire Marriages

Transcriptions of the marriage registers about half the parishes of Derbyshire (mainly in the south and east) have been published in Phillimore's "Derbyshire Parish Registers". Other transcripts are available as typescripts at the Derbyshire Record Office and in the library of the DFHS. More recently a number of parishes have been indexed on CD-rom. A significant number of parishes remain neither transcribed nor indexed.

2. Nottinghamshire Marriages

This is a complete list of every marriage before 1754 of which records have survived. The Marriage Registers of most Nottinghamshire parishes (up to 1812) have been transcribed and published in Phillimore's "Nottinghamshire Parish Registers". The remaining parishes, along with data from the Bishop's Transcripts which covers gaps in the surviving registers, have been indexed (but not transcribed) and published by the NFHS.
