A big hurrah for the Rev. William Dade, and Archbishop Markham who decided that Dade's idea of writing down a lot of info in the registers was a good one.

And all those clergymen outside the York diocese who took up at least some of Dade's ideas even when they didn't officially need to.
Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.

Not so much a shout .. more perhaps a groan ..

When I looked for the marriage entry of my two x Great Grandparents Edward Senior and Mary Innes I found that the person who was writing up the registers had decided to omit all information about Fathers and to leave this blank instead on all marriages.  When I enquired with the registrar I was told the marriage certificate was exactly the same - blank where Fathers' information should be.

I wonder what was behind this?  Perhaps they had kind motives - people born illegitimately could treated censuriously back then.  I suppose if you were illegitimate at that time you might have had a weight lifted off your mind going to that Church.  No having to make up a Father's name or no embarrassment having to admit the truth.

I also groan about the fact that Mother's information is not included on marriage certificates.  Were they not important too?

However, I would like to shout at those back in the days of yore who thought it fit to censure unmarried mothers but to let putative Father's seemingly off the hook.  For instance, you never hear of any putative Father having to serve time in a cruel, harsh unforgiving laundry establishment do you?

Women weren't considered important at all.  You'll find today, still people ready to give single mothers a hard time and blame them for all and sundry.

Incidentally, this is why I love Scottish certificates.  Both marriage and death certificates have the names of father and mother (where known) and have done since they began in 1855.  it is so useful, not just for knowing the mothers name but for narrowing down for example which child belongs to which John Smith.

Dade registers are great, and from 1798 to 1812 often in Co Durham, birthplaces of parents were listed, or natives of. I was able to prove my Scottish ancestor living in Bishop Auckland as it said he was a native of Selkirk, Scotland. If only all counties in the UK had that.

I'll second that suggestion to Duke William. Although I appreciate Norman architecture.

I'd politely enquire of one branch of the tree who carefully wrote a date in the front of their family bible which implied it was the date of their wedding, however I can't find any proof of it ANYWHERE! .......
