Find your ancestors in Yorkshire banns

What can these records tell me?

There are over 625,000 records in the marriage banns covering Anglican parishes across the three historic Yorkshire counties as well as records from some Roman Catholic parishes. This record set brings together the parish records held in six separate Yorkshire archives and family history societies to create a comprehensive collection of parish records for the whole county. Each record contains a transcript and an image of the original record. Each transcript will provide you with some or all of the following information:

  • Name
  • Banns date
  • Marriage year
  • Place
  • Residence
  • Spouse’s name
  • Spouse’s residence
  • County
  • Archive and reference
