BOYD'S MARRIAGE INDEX

 
Boyd's Marriage Index was compiled by Percival Boyd from printed and transcribed parish registers, Bishop's Transcripts, marriage licences and other sources. Only a percentage of actual marriages in each county is indexed. There are actually three series. The first series is arranged in county order; not all counties are included and not all parishes within each county. The second series, also called the Miscellaneous Marriage Index, is arranged in phonetic name order. The third series was completed by the library staff of the Genealogical Society, Salt Lake City, after Boyd's death in 1955. This series is arranged in strictly alphabetical order. For microfilming, the second and third series were combined and are called Boyd's Miscellaneous Marriage Index, Second Series. There are some counties included in the later series that were not included in the first series.

Note that all entries appear twice: once for the groom and once for the bride. There are some errors in the Boyd's indexes and information should always be checked against the original sources. The talley of parishes represented in Suffolk is the highest of any county covered in Boyd's; Norfolk only includes half as many. Note that although the County of London was not formed until 1888, the part of the first series called "London" and "Middlesex" includes parishes in the City of London and the county of Middlesex. Many persons living in nearby counties married in London.
