New Hampshire Marriage Licenses and Intentions, 1709-1961


This comprehensive work provides the researcher with an important reference to marriage records found in the New Hampshire State Archives, many of which may not be recorded elsewhere. Licenses issued by John and/or Benning Wentworth from 1742 through 1776 are listed, as well as licenses given in the state from 1709 until 1911, and some special licenses which were issued from 1921 through 1961, giving permission for out-of-state ministers to perform marriages in New Hampshire. Also included are transcriptions of records from Concord, Jaffrey, and Stratham covering the years 1791 to 1860, which arrived at the State Archives in 1991. In general, the records include the name of the bride and groom, their residences, the date of the intention or marriage, and for the out-of-state ministers, the ministers' names and residences.
