Databases - Berkshire Marriages

This consists of about 165,000 marriage records — a database that is being constantly updated. Early entries usually have only names of bride and groom, but later ones include such details as 'from other parishes' and whether the marriage was 'after banns' or 'by licence'. Witnesses were not usually included.

Much more information is available on the CD published by the society - Berkshire Marriages, now in its Third Edition - with some 580,000 names, and which contains transcriptions of entries from parish registers and bishop's transcripts. Later entries provide details of witnesses, of fathers of bride and groom, of addresses, occupations and other information.
