Risbridge Marriage Transcripts

In July 2011 we received 65 marriage transcripts for the Risbridge Registration District. They were 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.

For Risbridge Marriage Registration District, the challenger was Sandra Stevens. We are indebted to her for these marriage transcripts as they help considerably in linking families together.

Unfortunately, due to other committments, it has taken some time to include the information into the Pask database. However we are pleased to say that this last weekend we finally finished including the information gleaned from the transcripts.

The marriages mainly relate to:

Chart 2 - Descendants of John and Mirabel Pask née Sparrow

The marriages took place mainly in Kedington, and Wickhambrook. However, there are also marriages from
Great Bradley, Great Wratting, Haverhill, Stoke by Clare, and Sturmer (Essex).

Sincere thanks to Sandra for this valuable information.
