Hello

Because, my George Hood's 1815 Marriage Allegation has been altered and seemingly "Church" added, I am wondering if my ancestor felt he was exempt to begin with, from marrying in the Parish Church?

There must once have been a file, or Diocese records informing someone in the C of E at some level, that Marriages exempt under Hardwicke's Marriage Act, were about to take place at venues, outside of the Parish Church.

I have asked if such records still survive.
