Convict Permission to Marry
« on: Wednesday 26 March 08 07:24 GMT (UK) »

Can anyone tell me where to get hold of the records of convicts seeking the Governor's permission to marry please?

I have a couple of convict ancestors (all NSW) whose marriage certificates state they were married 'with the Governor's consent' and I'm hoping the documents have information which will help fill in our pictures of them.

Thank you.
