Scope and content

Includes notes of stamp duty paid on marriages, 1783-1785, 1789. Between the marriages and banns are papers relating to the publication of banns for John Hewitt and Mary Bachelor, 1780. (Mary had married a bigamist, William Pleasants (or Chilvers) of Bawdeswell in 1773, and in 1780, both Pleasants and his first wife were still living.) Includes a letter from the officiating minister at Bawdeswell, with marriage and banns certificates for William Pleasants, and letter from Richard Moss of Norwich, advising the vicar of North Walsham whether he might marry Mary Batchelor to Hewitt, 1780. For the vicar of North Walsham's draft letter requesting advice on this affair, see PD 711/28. The marriage of Chilvers and Mary appears in the North Walsham register for 1773, but there is no banns nor marriage entries for Hewitt and Mary in this register.
