St. John's Anglican Cathedral records - Marriages

What follows is a list of all marriage entries from the St. John's Anglican Cathedral records held at PANL as of July 2010 for the following surnames: as well as several other entries that caught my attention.

This list constitutes a typescript of my handwritten extraction from photocopies of the original records, which is to say that I may have inadvertantly introduced some errors while transcribing and typing... as always, you should double-check against the original records. That said, if you spot any mistakes that I have made, please let me know at

Some comments about these lists:

At PANL these records are in several volumes as follows: 1752-1789, 1752-1784, 1783-1795, 1784-1795, 1796-1803, 1812-1819, 1819-1828, 1828-1879, 1828-1836, 1836-1851, 1851-1878, 1825-1858 plus a number of miscellaneous booklets
