I obviously don't understand the meaning of the expression "of this parish" in Banns and Marriages.
My appreciation was that the person had been baptised in and resided in the Parish.
My understanding was that these were also the qualifications for receiving assistance from the Parish.
I have a lady married in Finchingfield, said to be 'of this parish', but there is no family representation whatsoever in baptisms, marriages (save for her) or burials.
Any advice would be appreciated.
