OPR Marriages, Forgan parish, 1703 - 1855
This is an index to the Forgan parish Old Parochial Register of Proclamations & Marriages. It comprises 1267 marriages from 12 August 1703 to 17 May 1855. The registers contain a mixture of proclamation dates and marriage dates. In my original transcription, only the date of marriage was included and some additional information (e.g. sponsors' names) was not included. However, the transcription is being updated and all information will be included. 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".
The originals are held by the National Records of Scotland, OPR 431/1 and 431/2. They can be viewed at the ScotlandsPeople website.
