About London & Middlesex Marriage Index 1538-1837
This collection indexes over 96,000 marriages for the City of London and Middlesex. This is an on-going project by Cliff Webb working from surviving source records.

Over 50,000 City of London marriages and 46,000 for Middlesex have been indexed. These include 3,100 Jewish marriages from Bevis Marks and the Great Synagogues, 3,160 Roman Catholic marriages, and 862 Huguenot marriages.

Most of the marriages (apart from those of the Great Synagogue) are not, to the best of our knowledge, available anywhere else online.

View the number of marriages, periods and parishes/churches.

  • First and Last name of groom
  • First and Last name of bride
  • Year of marriage
  • County and Parish of marriage
  • Record source - BT (Bishops' Transcript), ML (marriage licence), BANNS (banns)
The source records
The original registers provide a great deal more information than the index.
Microfilm copies of many registers were made by the LDS, and can be ordered from LDS Family History Centres.
