Banns read after Marriage!

Postby Mick Loney » Sat Jun 16, 2018 7:42 am

My 3'GGrandparents Samuel Loney and Ann Green, Married on 8th November 1823 at St John, Hackney
I have just seen the banns register entry (same church) and the last banns were read on 9th November, the day after the Marriage took place!
Anyone come across this type of thing before?

EDIT: Just found another entry for same couple on the previous page of register, and this shows all banns dated a week earlier than later entry, so third and last banns were read 2nd November! Seems Vicar had trouble making a copy of the entry, or was on auto pilot and entered banns again! :D
