Hampshire Allegations For Marriage Licences, Winchester Vol 1

Volume 1, Surnames A to L. Couples wishing to marry in England had to swear in an allegation that there were no impediments to the marriage when they applied for a marriage licence. The granting of the licence by the bishop of Winchester allowed the couple to marry in any parish within the diocese.

Marriage licences from 1604 were issued only by the ecclesiastical authorities which had jurisdiction over the parish where the marriage was to take place. Licences enabled couples to marry without publication or calling of banns in church. 

Licences could only be issued 'upon good caution and security taken'. Therefore anyone applying for a licence was required to enter into a bond with sureties which was usually filed with a marriage allegation.
