Parish Records
Marriages 1757-1779

The first 20 years or so of the records are not in good shape.   There are many points in the records which are in very poor shape, either due to the degradation of the original books when microfilmed, or due to the poor quality of handwriting and ink running.  Furthermore, many of the dates are obviously mixed up and don't make sense in their placement within the records.  I have attempted to maintain the order of records and maintain the wording and spelling as much as possible, however, please don't assume that information within this page is fully accurate, as mistakes are very easy to make in this type to records transcription.

If you notice any inaccuracies or mistakes within the transcriptions, please don't hesitate to contact the Newfoundland Grand Banks staff immediately.   However, please remember that the spellings of names have changed over time.   The name Pottle was also legitimately spelled Potel, Pottel, Potle, Potal, etc all without being incorrect.

[text] means the characters within [] are uncertain in their translation.
[ill] means these characters are illegible.
(cut off) means the page was damaged and cut off at this point.
