Certificate of proclamation and marriage

This certificate of proclamation and marriage was issued in 1850 to John Forrest and Elizabeth Purdie.

The certificate includes the words 'Kirkliston, March 18th 1850 ...regularly proclaimed, and Clifton, March 29(?)th 1850 ...regularly married...'.

In 1855 the registration of birth, marriages and deaths became compulsory. Local authorities, rather than the churches, now recorded them so as to monitor population change.
