Lincoln Marriages

Yesterday I received 55 (yes - fifty five) marriage transcripts from the Lincoln Registration District from Marion Harper Hopkins of the Guild of One-Name Studies.

They are as a result of the Guild of One-Name Studies (GOONS) Marriage Challenge. The Marriage Challenge is a Guild Project in which volunteers (Challengers) search for marriage entries in the deposited Parish Registers for a particular Registration District (RD) for the period 1837 to 1911.

Of the 55 marriages, two marriages were not listed in the GRO indexes:

  • 1858/Q3 PASK, Joseph Lincoln 7a 729 = PASK, Elizabeth on 20 July 1858 at St. John the Evangelist, Washingborough. This is listed under the name of PARK in the GRO Indexes.
  • 1860/Q2 PASK, Elizabeth = BUTTERY, John Lincoln 7a 883 on 31 March 1860 at St. Lawrence, Bardney. This is listed in the GRO Indexes under the names of BUTREY & PESK.
Copies of the marriage transcripts, and subsequently identified information will be included in the database and the website in the near future.

Sincerest thanks to Marion for her superb efforts. We are indebted to her for her committment to this project. The Pask, Paske One-Name Study has benefited substantially.
