Chaplains Returns & Marriage Certs
« on: Thursday 31 January 19 12:59 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
Can anyone explain why dates on GRO Chaplains Returns and Marriage Certs are totally different.  The GRO Chaplains Returns Marriages 1796 to 1880 records the marriage of Allen Hedley in Trinidad, West Indies stating the marriage year as 1825, but the name of spouse is not stated.  I found exactly the same details i.e. location, year, page number of record (599) but the name was Pricilla Haswell, but again no spouse name given.  I purchased a copy of the marriage cert and received a certified copy of an entry of marriage (SA 087049), Registration of Births, Deaths and Marriages (Special Provisions) Act 1957 which stated, "Marriages 1818 and 1819 Trinidad Royal Artillery.  29th November R Artillery Allen Hedley Serjt. a Bachelor and Pricilla Haswell a widow of the R. Y. Rangers were married by me R Harold Off. C.F. Serjt and Mrs Bailey R.Y. Rs. & Robert McLean R.A."
How are the dates so different from what appears to be the same marriage.  Also, who or what are the R.Y. Rangers?

Thanks for your help

Also, who or what are the R.Y. Rangers?

Maybe the Royal York Rangers

Just beat me too it.
Agree R. York Rangers.
There up to 1819 so 1825 is incorrect.

Hi,
Many thanks for the responses.  To answer one question the the Chaplains Returns were transcripts but I also found in "Army Returns - Marriages - 1796 to 1880" which appears to be an image, an entry for Allen Hedley.  The page format is 2 identical sections each of 5 columns headed Surname, Name, Station, Year and page, which in the subject case is page 599 as per the transcript.

Regards,
Horn
