Marriage certificate: meaning
« on: Friday 13 October 17 13:12 BST (UK) »
On a 1854 marriage certificate, in The Oaks Church, Charnwood Forest is written in the 'residence at time of marriage' box some words which appear to say 'in the consolidated chapelry' . It says the same for both parties.
Can anybody tell me what this means or have I misread it? I've never come across this before.
Thank you

Info on this site:
http://www.yorkshire-milestones.co.uk/all-about-waymarkers/boundary-markers/65-chapelry-boundary-stones

Quote:
Chapelries were of two kinds: a district chapelry if the new district was carved out of a single existing parish; or a consolidated chapelry (CC) if it was created out of more than one.
