Battle Harbour - Parish Marriage Records

These names do not represent all entries for any given year. It is information which I had obtained for my own family research. The handwriting was often difficult to read and I have put a question mark beside those names which were hard to decipher.

The information was transcribed by LINDA ELKINS-SCHMITT ~ March 1999. While I have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there could be some typographical errors. 

(b) = bachelor (s) = spinster (w) = widow(er)

ERRORS noted by Bernie Heard
  1. on Marriages, IGNORA Green is correct.
  2. Fredrick Messer is an early (and incorrect) spelling of MESHER. Samuel Christopher Messiah should also be MESHER, as well William Messer should be MESHER. However, you were correct in transcribing the Mesher spellings as that is how they were recorded.
  3. Bolter's Rock is OK. Often also spelled as Boulter's Rock or Bolster's Rock.
