OPR Marriages, Forgan parish, 1703 - 1855

This is an index to the Forgan parish Old Parochial Register of Proclamations & Marriages. It comprises 1268 marriages from 12 August 1703 to 17 May 1855. The registers contain a mixture of proclamation dates and marriage dates. When dates for both are given, only the date of marriage is included here. Some additional information (e.g. sponsors' names) has not been included here. Two of the entries do not name the bride.

A typical entry reads:

1824 November 14th. James Grant Parish of Abdie & Agness Baillie in this Parish have given in their names for proclamation in order to marriage - were proclaimed & no objections offered.

In this transcription, "in this parish" is recorded as "itp".
