Intention to Marry lookup**complete**
« on: Thursday 13 September 12 01:45 BST (UK) »
Would anyone going to WEllington archives be able to do this?
Given that it would be an easy one to find, I remeber mention that some earlier years were not an easy find???

Details of the marriage:
John Anderson marriage† † 30 Nov 1885 to Catherine Patterson
AUCKLAND

Many thanks
Althea

Hi althea and Mk-2,

Intention to Marry records are indexed up to 1880, after which the date and location of marriage is required to find the record.

I'll have a look for this one next time I visit Archives NZ.

Hi Althea,

Well, I did find an ITM record for a Catherine PATTERSON at Auckland in November 1885, but not to your John Anderson:

Intention to Marry Notice. Archives NZ Ref: BDM 20/30 1885 Auckland p.1278/560.
Dated 3 November: Patrick MULLING, bachelor, a Baker aged 24 years living at Auckland, length of residence 1 month, intends to marry Catherine PATTERSON, a spinster aged 24 years living at Auckland, length of residence 2 years, at St Benedictís Church, Newton.

To help you with a cross-reference, the marriage certificate number was 85/2892.

Hi Althea,

Do you know the marriage certificate reference number for your Anderson/Patterson marriage?

Was it #3701 as Lucy2 stated?

It is possible that they completed their Intention to Marry Notice in one place and married in another, of course.
