Kent Look-up Exchange

The following is a list of reference works on Kent which volunteers are willing to search for specific entries. To ask for a look-up, please click on the name by the reference. Requests should be specific:PLEASE give as much detail as you can. Abuses of the kindness of these volunteers will probably cause them to withdraw their names so please don't ask for all references to a common name, or for time-consuming research. Volunteers may or may not be willing to obtain copies of the relevant pages. If they are, expect to reimburse expenses.

To ensure that your message receives prompt attention please use the words Kent Look-ups in your subject line. Many volunteers work on several projects at once and it can be hard for them to try and guess which one you are responding to. Failure to do so could result in your request being overlooked.

PLEASE, check the dates/places you need looking up, against the resource being offered

Many of the sources used for these look-ups are the result of the dedication and hard work of a Family History Society. Many Family History Societies produce publications related to their county. You may want to consider purchasing your own copy of relevant resources to aid your research. You may also wish to consider supporting research in this area by joining the society. Details can be found at their respective web-sites, or see Genuki's Family History Society listings

VICAR GENERAL MARRIAGE LICENCES - SURNAME INDEX. This is an index to the SURNAMES of couples entered in the manuscript calendars of the Arch episcopal marriage licences, issued by the Vicar General's office for the period 1 JULY 1694-1850 . The Archbishop of Canterbury, through his Vicar General, issued common licences for couples to marry in any Parish Church or Chapelry. Common licences merely dispensed with the calling of banns on three successive Sundays. Until Lord Hardwicke's Marriage Act of 1753, the Vicar General's office also granted special licences to marry at any meet and convenient place, generally a college Chapel or nobleman's private Chapel not normally licenced for marriages. Withdrawn

Please contact Jo Morris if you are willing to add your name to this list. Give the full title(s) of any reference you are prepared to check. Suitable items would include tax lists, electoral rolls, directories, census indexes, indexed parish registers etc., etc.
