Marriage in Wales in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries: legal, clandestine or informal ?

with LBWFHS branch member Anna Brueton.

Anna Brueton's Ph.D. research concerned courtship, marriage and illegitimacy in West Wales.
In this talk she considers whether the widespread belief that 'Marriage ceremonies ... were frequently informal, clandestine or irregular' has any basis, using her own work and recent research into marriage in England.
