Marriage Licences
« on: Tuesday 13 June 17 00:47 BST (UK) »
Hi

Does anyone know if any Marriage Licences for parishes in the Archdeaconry of Lewes (East Sussex) area are available online?

Thanks  :)

Matt

There is this book, not sure if there are the dates you are after though

Might be worth checking the site to see if Volume one is on there also

Hi there

Thanks for that. This volume covers some of the dates I'm after and hopefully I can find other volumes on there as well.

Thanks again

Matt

Do you know if Lewes marriage licences for the period before this date are also online?

Have you searched the site already highlighted for similar books?  It's a potential treasure trove.

If you have a large number Sussex interests, then it might be worthwhile investing in the Sussex Marriage Index available from SFHG here:

Hi Nell

Thanks for the link. I did have a quick look the SFHG website last night but unfortunately I can't see any online indexes. I also looked at the Internet Archive (www.arhive.org) and on Google Books but couldn't find any online references.

The index available from the SFHG looks good but unfortunately it is a bit too expensive for me at the moment.

Thanks for the info and I shall keep this index in mind.

Best Wishes

Matt

Hi Matt

Here you go

Hi Claire

On first glance I thought this was just marriage Licences for the Archdeaconry of Chichester. However I've now found the links on there for the Archdeaconry of Lewes.

Unfortunately though when I clicked on the links all I got was black pages downloaded rather than the book. Do you know if these volumes are available on the Internet Archive as well?

Many many thanks for this.

Matt

I don't know what search terms you used on the Internet Archive (I used Sussex Marriage Licences) , but there is this volume too:

The same book is available on the link that Claire gave, but it might take a little while to download.
