Tlie First Series of these Marriage Licences, issued two years ago, brought the work to the end of the year 1618 ; this Series closes on March 24, 1 660-1. The two series thus cover a period of ninety-three 3'ears, and contain about 18,000 Marriage Allegations. If the Allegations in this volume are compared with those in the former, it will be seen that they give much more information, and that they are, consequently, very much longer. I could, it is true, have made my entries shorter by eliminating many details, but every elimination would have meant the suppression of some useful or interesting matter. I might, for instance, have omitted all reference to wedding dinners, wedding drinkings, wedding courtesies ; the foul ways which prevented the interested parties from getting to Canterbury ; and the reasons which induced persons, bent on matrimon\', to prefer a particular church in which to be married. But then 1 should ha^■e left all the amusement out of the book, and deprived my readers of the good (and bad) stories it contains, and so have reduced it to a " proper " and dry-as-dust condition. I might, too, have omitted thousands of the " stray names ; " but instead, and notwithstanding the labour involved, I have endeavoured to give the whole of them, in the hope that they may add to the usefulness of the work ; for they frequently give a clue to the parishes in which families bearing the same name may be looked for. It may also be noted that, whatever may be the value of the information here given, that information is not limited to the County of Kent. A reference to the third Index will show that places as far apart as Edinburgh and the Isle of Wight, Lincoln and Holland, and Bristol and Calais, are represented, while the references to London arc numerous.

It is necessary to draw attention to certain deficiencies in this Series. In June, 1627, four pages of Allegations are missing. These pages probably contained ten entries ; eight or nine of these I have supplied from various jjarish registers, to each one so supplied, I have added a note. In 1643 there is a more serious gap, which will be best explained by giving William Somner's own account of it. On fol. 192, Vol. O., he wrote :

" M"^ that by reason of the distraining and seizing of this amongst other book's belonging to the oflice for non payment of a certaine Sesse imposed on the Registers, by vertue of an ordinance of Parliament,* the Licences happening from and after these last menc'oned vntill the xiiijth of October

* The reader should consult "The Journals of the House of Commons," April 14, 1643.


then next following, were entered and recorded in a certaine small paper hooke made for that pur])ose and couered w*'' ]iarchm*, wliere they may be found by the helpe of an Index at the end thereof. W : Somner."

The number of Allegations lost (so far) b}' this curious and untoward event is about seventy, of which I have recovered from registers twenty-three. I need hardly say I have made diligent search for the " certaine small paper booke " in every place accessible to me ; but there is one place which, owing to my absence from home on the two da}-s in each week on which the Cathedral Library is open, I have not searched. I refer to tlie room in which William Somner's manuscripts are kept.

In 1640 there is another gap. The six lea\-es following leaf 69 of Vol. P. have disappeared. They were probably lost when the volume was bound or re-bound, for the edges of the book have been cut. According to the Index the six leaves contained 34 allegations, ol which I ha\e recovered 17 from parish registers; that is to say, I have found 17 marriages which followed the making of the lost allega- tions. Such as I have not succeeded in tracing will be found under the names as they stand in the Index to Vol. P. {See Barham et Dawson, col. 60.)

Then there is the period between July 30, 1646, and August 17, 1660. Here there is nothing to recover, for the simple reason that the functions of Archbishops, Archdeacons, and Registrars, as well as the issue of Marriage Licences, were suspended. It is useless to lament over what is lost : it is well to be thankful for what we have left. And surely we have special reasons for being thankful, first, that William Somner recovered his books from the hands of the tax collector, and, second, that Somner, or some person of a like mind, managed to preserve the books during the perilous years 1646 to 1660.-'^

And here, before I finally dismiss this list of what is missing, I must confess to two omissions of my own, and ask the reader to supply them, (i) To the allegation made by Thomas [enkcn of Westh^'the (col. 548), add " At S. George's, Cant." (2) To that made by Thomas Parramore of Waltham (col. 740), add "At S. Martin's, Cant."

Of what I may call uncommon Christian names but few will be found in this volume, and of names which may be styled uncouth fewer still. Such names as Faith, Hope, Charity, Mercy, Prudence, Patience, and Pleasant, have generally been more or less popular, and the Puritans certainly had no monopoly of these, any more than they had of the names of Patriarchs, Prophets, Evangelists, Apostles, and other Biblical characters. Now and then a scriptural name certainly has an odd look, but that is about all. Of these unusual names I quote the following : Abdias Pownoll, Abovehope Sharpie, Alveridus Hills, Appia Pyend, Atherie Straine, Avarus Mount, Bashia Sharpie, Barsheba Betts, Bethulia Pierce, Booz Parker (feyn.), Bruno Disbro, Cassamera Mathews, Dccmos Goldie, Egidia Tasseels, Elisan Day, Emblem Wright, Fortunatus Gray, Fortune Downe, Freegift Boorne, Godly * The Noncomformists of Canterbury did not take formal possession of the Cathedral until the sth

day of the 5th month, 1650. Sec Minute Book, Guildhall Street Chapel, Canterbury.

Edwardes, Godward Freeman, Hopostill TiUlfn, Isa Kennett, Jov Star, judeos Ferrers, Lezard (Eleazar) Day, Moravia Taylor, Xinian Burrell, Nisell Tritton, Noneus Dolman, Obedience Cruttenden, Persis Taylor, Peace Fowesden, Please vSwinford, Redeemed Compton, Remember Death Comper, Remembrance Smith, Repent Clarke, Repentance Garrett, Rosania Sayer, Sacra Hutchcn, Surctriist ^^'illiams, Synollus Bell, Temperance Huntlc}-, Tremor Allam, Triih- Jones, Zutphania Clive.

I have included Alveridus in the above list, as I take it to mean Alberedus or Aluredus, the Latin form of Alfred, aiul this is, I belie\e, the only instance in which I have met with the name in all my researches among the parish registers, etc., of Kent before the year 1801. The list includes the names Repent and Repentance, and this induces me to say a few words on the curiously suggestive names which were. often bestowed on illegitimate children. For these the minister was, I imagine, responsible ; for one mother brought such a child to be baptized, and it was named Lament. In due course she brought another, and that was named Lament. When she brought the third, the parson seems to have given licr up, for number three was christened Tcrtiits. At Eastchurch, in 1578, Doubtful and Lamentable, both base-born, were christened; at Headcorn, about 1570, Creature; at Kingsnorth, 1609, Strange ; at Marden, between 1578 and 1624, there were six Repents, and two Repentances; at Alilton near Sittingbourne, I find Lamentation and. Repentance ; At Minster in Sheppy, Desolate and Iphtajih ; at Sturry, between 1604 and 161 1, four children were named Repentance; and at Kingsdown, on Dec. 28, 1581, was baptized " Liocent Day, sone of on (one) Day." All these children are registered as illegitimate.

The following, culled from various sources, may, I think, be accepted as of Puritanic origin :— Asgodwill, son of Anthony Kingesmvll, Mcar of Milton near Sittingbourne ; Attained Smith, of Goudhurst ; Bethankfull Cunny, of iMarden ; Careful Somersall, sojourner in Fairfield ; Comfort Tomkins, of Lydd ; Consider Janson, of Goudhurst; Creata Gooddin, of Kennington ; Living Goldsmith, of Hinxhill ; Faintnot ^^'ine, of Eastwell ; Feare (}od Butler, of Goudhurst; Fearnot Cressid, ot Warehorn ; Forbade Bates, of ]\Llton near Sittingbourne ; Friendless Knott, of Harbledown ; Honour-the Lord, son of Abraham Lorde, of Kennino-ton: Indued Ellis, of ^lilton near Sittingbourne ; Increased Collins, of Sittingbourne : Joyous Eaton, of S. ]Mar3-'s in Dover ; Alorebread Glover and Humilitv Reyner, of Lydd ; Morefruit Ersden, of [Marden ; Nazareth Ramsdeu, Nazareth Maplesden, Nazareth Kinker, Nazareth Barber, Nazareth Sibley, and Nazareth Bathirst, all of Goudhurst, between 1603 and 1634; Renewed Stevens, of ^Nlarden ; Serajihin Markettman, of Lydd ; Silence Turner, of Faversham ; and Truthanna Lintut, of Marden. Hamlet Page, Avho was buried at Harbledown in 150:;, must not be included in any list of Puritan names ; while Sufficient, the ieulh daughter of John Grimston, Vicar of Lyminge, grimly suggests that the good vicar thought his qui\er was full.

From 1 66 1 to 1700 the interest of these Canterbury Allegations is well main- tained. To bring them to the end of the year 1700, three more volumes will be

"\"i CAN" n-.Kr,rk\ .MARKrA<;K i,R;i;xci-,s.

necessary ; volumt-s nf)t so bulky as this, Init larger, I Icar, ihan ilic first. After 1700 the Alleviations are little nK.ire than a ilr\ list ot names. Useful to the gene.alogist, no doubt, but jtresentins' nothing of sufficient interest to induce a l)rivnte person to embark on the wilil speculatiim of printing them.

AT}' best thanks are again due to the Riglit ive\erend the Lord i>isli(i]i of Dover, uiu>, as Archdeacon of Canterbury, has, as usual, afforded me <-very facility for doing mv work with the least inconvenience to m\self ; also to Mr. .\Ilen Fielding, tlie Deputv Registrar, wlimn I ha\'e tn.uibled times without number, hut hav(.' ne\'er ^^'earied.
