|Licences for marriages in southern England
The province or archbishopric of Canterbury covered all England and Wales except for the northern counties in the four dioceses of the archbishopric of York (York, Durham, Chester and Carlisle). Marriage licences were generally issued by the local dioceses, but above them was the jurisdiction of the archbishop. Where the prospective bride and groom were from different dioceses it would be expected that they obtain a licence from the archbishop; in practice, the archbishop residing at Lambeth, and the actual offices of the province being in London, which was itself split into myriad ecclesiastical jurisdictions, and spilled into adjoining dioceses, this facility was particularly resorted to by couples from London and the home counties, although there are quite a few entries referring to parties from further afield. Three calendars of licences issued by the Faculty Office of the archbishop were edited by George A Cokayne (Clarenceux King of Arms) and Edward Alexander Fry and printed as part of the Index Library by the British Record Society Ltd in 1905. The first calendar is from 14 October 1632 to 31 October 1695 (pp. 1 to 132); the second calendar (awkwardly called Calendar No. 1) runs from November 1695 to December 1706 (132-225); the third (Calendar No. 2) from January 1707 to December 1721, but was transcribed only to the death of queen Anne, 1 August 1714. The calendars give only the dates and the full names of both parties. Where the corresponding marriage allegations had been printed in abstract by colonel Joseph Lemuel Chester in volume xxiv of the Harleian Society (1886), an asterisk is put by the entry in this publication. The licences indicated an intention to marry, but not all licences resulted in a wedding.

|Outstanding soldiers of the Alexandra, Princess of Wales's Own (Yorkshire Regiment)
Each year the best soldiers of the regiment were chosen for long service and good conduct medals. This register gives rank, name, regimental number, and date of recommendation. (The sample scan is from the East Surrey regiment). The register is essentially a register of recommendations, annotated with details of the issue of the medals. Where no gratuity accompanied the medal, the entry is marked 'W. G.' (without gratuity); where, for one reason or another, the medal was not issued, the entry is marked 'N. S.' (not sanctioned) and struck through. The regiment was based on the 19th Regimental District - Richmond in Yorkshire. The 1st battalion embarked for Egypt 3 August 1884, and took part in the action of Giniss; in 1888 the battalion was moved to Cyprus, and in 1889 back to England; to Jersey in 1892; to Ireland in 1895; to Gibraltar in 1898; back to England in 1899. That year the battalion was sent off to the war in South Africa, taking part in the relief of Kimberley, and the fighting at Paardeberg, Driefontein, Johannesburg, Diamond Hill and Belfast, returning to England in September 1902 - having added "South Africa, 1899-1902", "Relief of Kimberley" and "Paardeberg" to the regimental honours. The 2nd battalion returned to England from India 21 January 1877, moved to Ireland in 1881, and in 1885 was stationed at the Curragh; having returned to England in 1886, the battalion embarked for India 1 January 1890, and by 1895 was serving at Shwebo in Burmah, having taken part in the North West Frontier campaign.
