54. Volume xv of Phillimore's Parish Register Series, consists of the marriages that have taken place in thirteen parishes of Cornwall in the deanery of Trigg Minor.

They have been transcribed from the Parish Registers and collated with the Bodmin Transcripts by the Rev. T. Taylor, M. A., Vicar of St. Just in Penwith, whose efforts to rescue from oblivion the contents of the Cornish Registers is worthy of all praise. This reason for a sufficient reason, has no index. I have gone through the entries and compiled a list of extra-parochial alliances. A number of these concern Devon, and below I have arranged them alphabetically as regards their parishes. Notes should be made of these entries and placed among the Registers of the particular "parish of origin" named.

May Devonian names occur with only the description "sojourner" after them.
