[157 Marriage records]

All Saints Church Dorchester
© Michael Russell FIPD

These Marriage Registers were first transcribed by the Revd Richard Grosvenor Bartelot MA (1868-1947) (RGB) who was the vicar of St Georges Church Fordington (1906 - 1936) and a great historian and genealogist. They were published with the permission of the Revd Samuel Edward Valpy Filluel M.A (1855-1931) the Rector of All Saints Church (1892-1918) when Richard Bartelot described the register as :-
    "The usual parchment Commonwealth Register 12 inches by 8 dating baptisms from 1653 - Burials and Marriages from 1654. The handwriting by the Parish Clerk is very illegible especially the earlier part where spelling is apparently treated as a phonetic perquisite used by the clerk to prevent anyone but himself from deciphering the entries: Vol 2 12 inches by 8: Vol 3 12 inches by 8 ˝: Vol 4 15 inches by 9 ˝."
The Rev Bartelot's transcription which is available on CLDS Film 0962788 June 2009 has now [May 2012] been updated against the original Parish Registers where they have survived and (PR) added to the end of the line to show transcription completed. The Rev Bartelot commented in his transcription and where appropriate I have retained these comments which are encased in (rounded brackets). In some cases he seems to have a more complete document than is available to me as surnames missing at the end of the line for example have been entered either from another copy of the register or from his personal reseach into many of these families. My own comments are in [square brackets in italics] Readers are reminded that the year started on 25 March not 1st January until the year 1752. The file has also been checked against the IGI, and any differences commented upon. Because of the difficulty with the scribe during these early years I have also in many cases (not all) looked for children from the marriage as this has helped with transcription of some names.

1654 [Note:- The original document is badly water damaged down the right hand side and where text is missing I have indicted by a series of dashes ------. In some cases because of the repetitive nature of some text it is possible to anticipate the missing text which I have added in square brackets in italic]

Peter BUN and Ann EDWARDS both of t -----[this parish, published] three Lords days, were married the 28 August. (PR)

Water [Walter] GILLIT and Cathern [Catharine] GENGKING? [JENKINS?] published three ----[Lords days] and were married the 7 of November (PR)

    (Note:- RGB transcribed this as "BENGR i.e. BENGER" sic ) [ but this is not correct, although the surname is difficult to read the first letter is definately a capital 'G' with the diagonal line through it typical of the capital 'G' used in Court Hand script - similar to the capital 'G' used in his surname of 'GILLIT' over which there is no dispute - and nothing like the capital 'B''s used elswhere in the same document. We also have to bear in mind RGB's damming comments about the illiteracy of the scribe given at the start of his transcription - see above - and there is a baptism for a Morrel GINKINS [or JENKINS] in All Saints baptism registers in 1663 so a family of that name was living in the parish around that date. My best guess therefore is that he married Catharine JENKINS - MR OPC for Dorchester]

Richard FOY of St Peters parish and Judeth BISHOP of -----[this parish?] being published three Lords days were married the 14 -----(PR)

    [Note:- RGB incorrectly transcribed this surname as SOP, and gave the month as November which he must have carried down from the previous marriage as the edge of the document is missing at this point. Richard Foy was actually the Parish Clerk that RGB referred to in his preamble to his transcription of the All Saints baptism register. Richard & Judeth had the following children baptised at All Saints:- (1) Richard born 27th Apr 1656 and bap 2nd June 1656, he married an Alice and his following children are beneficiaries under Judeth's Will dated 5th Aug 1704. 1704 - George, James, Martha, Judeth and Mary (2) James born 14 Apr 1658 bap 4th May 1658, and is also a beneficiary under Judeth's will which records that he is currently i.e. in 1704 living in New England (3) Mary bap 10th June 1660 (4) Robert bap 26th Nov 1662, also a beneficary under 1704 will (5) Martha bap 25th Feb 1664/5 (6) Rose bap 11 Feb 1666/67 and buried there 20th Oct 1667 - Richard FFOY was one of the 300 inhabitants of Dorchester who signed the oath of loyalty to King Charles II on 31st August 1681 and died intestate and was buried at All Saints church Dorchester on 26th June 1682. Letters of Administration for his estate were granted to his widow Judeth on 7th November 1682 - image available on Judeth his widow was buried at All Saints on 24th September 1704 leaving a Will dated 5th Aug 1704 which was proved on 25th Sep 1704]

Thomas GIE & Frances PEACE both of this parish being published three ---- [Lords days] were married 16 of January (PR) [Note:- the wife of Thomas GUI waqs buried at All Saints Church Dorchester on 28th June 1705]


Robert LEMMON of Pulham & Mary BISHOP ----[were] published three Lords days were married the ----(PR) (RGB has 24 May) [Note:- a son Robert was bap All Saints 2nd June 1656 and one of them signed the oath of Loyalty to King Charles II on 31st August 1681 - Their son Robert married Tamsen HOLGARD at St Peters Church on 9th Feb 1681]

William FFLOUD & Jane PURDIE were published ----[three Lords days] and were married the 21 of June (PR)

James CHINCHIN of Lanthon & Elizabeth VINE were published three Lords days and were married ---- (PR) ( RGB has 24 June)

    [Note:- Larthon is likely to be a reference to Langton Matravers which is close to Swanage in the Isle of Purbec just over 20 miles east of Dorchester. The Chinchin family lived there for many years with John Chinchin senior and junior for example being listed in the Protestation returns for Langton in 1641. Many of that surname were stone masons and a' James Chinchin' was signatory to the "Bylaws of the Marblers of Corfe Castle, Co. Dorset renewed and confirmed on 3rd March 1651" which could be him. The Civil war lasted from 1642 to 1651 and given all the fortifications hastily constructed around Dorchester at that time its not surprising to find a stone mason employed at Dorchester and this may have been how he met Elizabeth Vine.]

George HELLARD and Mary SPRAGG both of th---- [this parish were ] published three Lords days and were married the 24 ---- (PR) (RGB has 24th July)

    [Note:- George Hellard's first wife Edeth was buried at AS on 24th June 1655. Because the surviving registers only start that year we know of only 1 child by edeth which was (1) Elizabeth baptised ASv 25th July 1654. I can also only trace 1 child from his marriage to Mary Spragg (2) Elener bap AS 30 Mar1657]

Salathiell HUNT of Avon in Hampshire & Jane MELLER of ---- [this parish] were published three Lords days and were married the 8 of ---- (PR) (RGB has 8th Oct) [Note:- Salathiel is a recognised biblical name meaning asked or lent of God]

Jacob [Surname illegible but RGB has COALE] of this parish and ----[her name is illegible but RGB has - Eideth DICKER of Monkton] [Note:- child John bap AS 5th Nov 1657 ]

----[Christian name is illegible but RGB has Samuell] ALLEN & Joane MARTEN were married the ----[day is illegible but RGB has 11th] December 56 (PR)

    [Note:- Samuel and Joane ALLEN [ALLIN] after marriage at the end of 1656 lived initially in Holy Trinity parish (circa 1656-1660) then St Peters (circa 1661-1662) before settling back in All Saints in 1663. I can trace six children:- (1) Sarah Allen bap Holy Trinity 16th November 1658. (2) Lidia Allen bap St Peters 7th July 1661 & buried there 31st August 1662 (3) Robert Allen bap All Saints 27th Sep 1663 & buried there 27th Oct 1667 (4) Rebecca bap All Saints 23rd Sep 16666 abd buried there 7th Nov 1667 (5) Samuel bap 15th Nov 1668 and buried there 13th January 1668/9 (6) Samuel Allen bap 24th July 1670 and buried 26th Dec 1685.

William BASCOMBE of forington [Fordington] & Tamsen BUTLER of this parish were married the 25 of December (PR)

    [Note:- As was traditional the marriage took place in the brides parish and they returned to Fordington to live. Parish registers for Fordington from 1640 to 1663 have unfortunately not survived, but they had a daughter Sarah baptised at St Georges church on 11th January 1665/6 when his wife's name was recorded as Thomason . The burial at Fordington of William BASCOMBE on 4th October 1680 is likely to be him although difficult to be sure as the name is not uncommon. Certainly his wife recorded as Thomasin BASCOMB was buried there on 20th August 1682]


Edward CHEAPMAN [Chapman] of this parish & Ann ADAMES [Adams] of Munton were married the 4 of April (PR) [Note:- Munton probably refers to Monkton which means 'of the monks' but there are 3 parishes of that name. By far the closest and most likely is Winterborne Monkton but parish registers do not survive from that period]

Henery HARBEN and Margery BULLICK [BULLOCK] both of this parish were married the 25 June (PR)

    [Note:- Henry HARBIN was a baker by trade and fortunately left a Will [Link to transcription] when he died and was buried at All Saints on 22nd Feb 1697/8. From his will we know he had a brother Christopher Harben and he was one of the 300 inhabitants of Dorchester who signed the Oath of Loyalty to King Charles II on 31st August 1681. Henry and Margery only had two children (1) Henry Harben junior (1658-1677) born 2nd Oct 1658 who lived until he was 19 years old before he died and was buried at All Saints on 26th September 1677. (2) Deborah Harben (1659-1706) bap at All Saints on 20th Aug 1659 who was his surviving heir and who married Sebastian HUNT at St Georges church in Fordington on 7th July 1692.

He had at least 2 sons by Sarah (1) William baptised at AS on 20th April 1662 and (2) James bap the 20th Dec 1663 the same day that they buried Sarah so she probably died in childbirth. Six months later he married Ann PEACH who gave birth to the following children:- (3) John bap AS 12 Feb 1664/65 (4) Lawrence bap AS 2nd May 1667 (5) George bap AS 14th May 1671 and (6) Israel bap AS 7th June 1674 - His 2nd wife Ann nee Peach then died and was buried at AS on 30th Apr 1676 - Israel SHEPPARD remarried for a third time to Dorothy HURDEN on 26th December 1676 although she also died in 1680]
