1863 WEDDINGS ANNOUNCEMENTS IN IRELAND
by Sharon Slater | Sep 30, 2014 | 1863 Weddings, People & Genealogy
1863 was the year before civil registrations became compulsory for all in Ireland
(there were some civil marriage records from 1845 but these did not include Roman Catholics)
and so there is no centralised system for recording weddings which took place during that year and the years previous.
Each marriage was recorded in the parish church in which the marriage took place,
occasionally these weddings were also announced in the local press.
The following weddings all took place in 1863 and were announced in the Limerick Chronicle.
The Limerick Chronicle, as with other newspapers of its period, carried news of high society weddings.
It was quite expensive to place a wedding announcement into the papers and as such it was not common practice.
