Strays – Marriages

While Wing was a large enough parish that a suitable bride or groom could likely be found in the immediate vicinity, a prospective spouse could also have come from a different parish altogether and thus the marriage of our Wing ancestor may have taken place elsewhere. The happy couple may also wish to marry in a parish in which neither resided (although a licence was generally required for this). Below are marriages for Wing residents noted in the parish registers for other locations.

If you find the marriage of a Wing person on your research travels, please let me know.

Phillimores – Buckinghamshire

Phillimores produced transcripts of the marriage entries in selected Buckinghamshire parishes, generally up to 1812 although this does vary depending on the parish. Yes, Wing itself was transcribed as part of this series, the parish registers for 1546 to 1812 can be purchased on CD or via download from S&N Genealogy. There are currently two separate sets available for Bucks, the initial 50-parish (including Wing) 9-volume set first published in the early 1900s, plus a further 11-parish set first published in 2005 by the Parish Register Transcription Society. All years appear as published by Phillimore, which are stated as they appear in the underlying records – dates prior to March 25th in each year before 1752 will therefore follow the old-style Julian calendar year.

Reviewing the list below, a number of Wing folk headed to Grove to be married in the 1720s and 1730s. The curate there from 1720 was Matt. Mayo – interestingly enough in the 1770s the Wing curate was a Matthias Mayo, perhaps a relative?

Below are the entries I have found in the other Buckinghamshire parishes that involved a person from Wing, listed in alphabetical order according to the Wing surname and listed twice if both parties were from Wing. Supplementary information obtained from the parish registers in question appears in brackets.

Other Marriage Strays

All years appear as provided to me – dates prior to March 25th in each year before 1752 might follow either the old-style Julian calendar year or new-style Gregorian calendar year as I don’t know whether the dates were converted before being provided to me or not. You should check the underlying record yourself to confirm the correct year.
