Ebenezer House Wedding 1872 Glasgow
« on: Thursday 29 March 12 21:33 BST (UK) »
Does anyone know anything about an Ebenezer House?

I have a wedding at this location, Craighall Rd, Glasgow in 1872.

The wedding was conducted here and given as the address of the bride.

The bride's father was a sugar boiler.

The wedding was also conducted by the Episcopal Church of England. Was this common in Scotland.

The family had Irish & German connections

The most common choice of place for a wedding ceremony was in the home of the bride's parents, so if that was her address, it would be just the name of the house.

As for the church, it is extremely unusual for a marriage in Scotland to be conducted by a priest of the Church of England. Episcopalians/Anglicans would normally be married by a priest of the Scottish Episcopal Church, which is in full communion with the C of E. If the celebrant was genuinely a priest of the C of E, it suggests that there may be some connection with the family.

To eliminate the possibility of a slip of the pen/brain, you could consult the book Scottish episcopal clergy 1689-2000 by David M Bertie, which is available online.

I thought the church was unusual.

England is repeated twice: once 'according to the forms' and secondly as 'incumbent of English Episcopal Church'

Something to be followed up  :)

Shortened version of an article in the Glasgow Herald , Friday, May 27, 1870 -

Two lots of land for sale fronting Craighall Road, opposite the sugar refinery, Messrs Murdock & Doddell with the two self contained dwelling houses thereon known as Ebenezer Field House and Wester Common House.

If you have access to 19th Century Newspapers you will be able to see the full article. So it looks as if Ebenezer House/Ebenezer Field House was within the grounds of the sugar refinery.

Thanks so much. That ties in with the father being a sugar boiler :)

There is a semi-detached house in West Kilbride (which probably dates to about 1910) called Ebenezer. There might be more of them. I wonder the reason for the name choice?

I'd still check with David Bertie's book. Although its official name is Scottish Episcopal Church, as children we referred to it (on the rare occasions we spoke about it at all) as the 'English kirk'.

Here is part of the cert showing the ref to the Church of England.

Can anyone read the name of the incumbent?

I think it's Courtney, and it does say 'English Episcopal Church, not 'Church of England'.

Can't make out the word(?s) after 'Incumbent', however.
