Irish Marriages, Being an Index to the Marriages in Walker's Hibernian Magazine, 1771-1812, With an Appendix from the Notes of Sir Arthur Vicars...; by Henry Farrar; 532 pp.; Paperback; Published: 1897; Reprinted: 2001; ISBN: 9780806305172; Item # CF1770D
The contents of this volume are of exceptional value because a great fund of unexpected genealogical data is included; for example, while each entry gives the name of the bride and groom, the date and place of marriage, places of residence, and sometimes the occupation and station of the groom, it often includes the names of parents and their places of residence. In addition, page references to Walker's Hibernian Magazine are cited. Altogether some 9,000 brides and grooms are given, and they are listed alphabetically by surname of both bride and groom. The book is further enhanced by the addition of a 52-page index to the births, marriages, and deaths recorded in the Anthologia Hibernia during its two years of existence, 1793-1794. This section was prepared by Sir Arthur Vicars, Ulster King of Arms.
