Phillimore's Marriage Registers

"Phillimore's Marriage Registers" is a series of books published in the late 19th and early 20th centuries by Phillimore and Co. The books themselves are usually only found in libraries, but they are now available on CD and some are online. They exist for about 30 counties and there are 12 volumes for Norfolk, covering 127 parishes, which is about 17% of the total. The dates for each parish depend on the surviving registers, and there may be gaps.

Volumes 4, 5 and 7 are online - see below.

The volumes contain transcriptions of marriage registers for several parishes, with each entry being in a standard form, for example (using fictitious people):

John Smith & Mary Mason ... 19 Aug 1703

As with any transcription, it is advisable to check the original parish register, where there may also be additional information.

There is an index to Phillimore's Marriage Registers, but it is not a surname index. Instead it shows in which volumes a parish appears. This covers all the counties for which volumes were published, not only Norfolk.
