What does this say?
« on: Thursday 14 June 07 10:32 BST (UK) »
Can you tell be what the letters are after by 
It's married by so I assume it's something to do with license but why three letters.  All others on page were married by banns

Looks like L B L - a set of initials maybe? or an ancronym? It might either be smudged or a bad copy e.g under the word May

Hi There.....

It could be the initials of the minister who married them.......

I have a few Parish Registers, and they do give a list of ministers/priests in charge, and the years they officiated

Just a thought.....

Regards

It is not the minister, he is named.  It is an alternative to being married by Banns and must be connected to being married by license.

Here is the full record, hope it's not too big.  The word church is missing after married in this by L????

Yes, it would be a Common or Ordinary Ecclesiastical Licence issued on the authority of the Bishop of London.

Hi Sylviaann

I've had a look on my disk of London Marriage Licenses and can't find them  :( Not that that means a great deal - I keep hoping to find someone (anyone) on that disk but no luck so far  ::)

Yes I agree Licence (by the) Bishop of London because there is a colon after the first L.
