Subject: [NIR-DOWN] Down people married in Holywood 1864 - 1866
Date: Wed, 28 May 2003 16:54:26 +0100 (BST)


People married in Holywood who lived outside the town.
I have found on one certificate that the entries for
bride and groom where made but no signatures and no
witnesses listed, would this marriage have taken
place?

On two entries below the name 'Elizabeth Carswell'
occurs as the bride twice, to two different grooms,
but same father, though two different addresses for
the bride. I assume they were sisters but do not know
for sure.
