Strays, 1800-1869
 

 This is one of three web pages pertaining to a few
 "stray" 19th-c. marriages, for grooms or brides who
 were So. Ronaldsay- or Burray-born, but who married
 elsewhere in Scotland.


 THIS LIST IS NOT A COMPLETE LIST OF ALL "strays"...

   the names listed below are only those I have located so far.

YEAR - Page No. - Entry No.  / MONTH  -  Name of Groom/Usual Residence

(note: marriages that were registered pre-1855 may notate only the YEAR /MONTH  -
  Where Marriage Was Registered  -  Name of Groom  -  Name of Bride  -  Parents of
  Groom/Usual Residence  -  Parents of Bride/Usual Residence  -  Witnesses)
