A fascimile of an 1887 1,500-page publication by Joseph Foster which gives details of London marriages for the period 1521 to 1868 from the following sources: Bishop of London's Office 1521 to 1828; Dean and Chapter of Westminster's Office 1599 to 1699 ; Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury 1543 to 1869; and the Vicar General's Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury 1660 to 1679. Joseph Foster's publication was based on the transcriptions of Colonel Chester who saved these entries from obscurity when discovering a huge number of unindexed marriage records in Latin. This work was then published by Joseph Foster in alphabetic order in 1887. The record of these marriages often elude those tracing a family name because of the marriages being scattered geographically
