MARRIAGE BONDS AND ALLEGATIONS
People wanting to marry by licence went to the Consistory and entered into a “Bond” or Allegation.
It should not be assumed that people married in the church have always resided in the parish of the church as some Clergy were lax in seeing that the residence qualifications were complied with.
