PREFACE. 



It is not necessary to expatiate »n the interest and import- 
ance of the contents of this volume. The lawyer will often 
turn to these marriage records to solve obscure questions of 
title to land. The historian will find here much information 
throwing light on obsolete laws and customs of the past. The 
student of sociology will discover many odd facts bearing on 
questions of race, heredity, social usages and other problems 
aH'ecting the development of society. To the genealogist of 
course the book will be invaluable. 

This work had its beginning in a resolve to print the man- 
uscript index, in the office of the Secretary of State at Trenton, 
to the marriage bonds on file, and the records of marriage li- 
censes, in that office. The origin of these bonds and of these 
licenses seemed to deserve explanation, out of which grew the 
Historical Introduction on the Early Marriage Law of New 
Jersey, which follows. In order to expand the volume to a 
suitable size it was concluded to add the other marriage rec- 
ords which will be found succeeding those in the Secretary of 
State's office. 

These exhaust the extant marriage records prior to 1801 , for 
the counties of Bergen, Hudson and Essex, so far as the editor 
has been able to learn. The early Dutch churches as a rule 
were scrupulously careful to keep and preserve in the chuich 
archives registers of baptisms and marriages. The churches 
of other denominations not only were not so particular, but 
when the records were made they were often regarded as the 
private property of the pastors, and were carried away by 
them on their removal to other charges. 

The first Reformed (Dutch) church in New Jersey was 
that at Bergen, dating back to 1660. Its marriage records 
are well preserved, and are reproduced down to iSoi, in

this volume. This was in iSoo the only church within the 
present Iliuison county. 

Berjjcn counly had a number of churches in iSoo, as fol- 
lows : Ilackensack, established in i6S6; its marriaj^e records 
are well kept ami are given herewith. Schraalenburgh, 1724 ; 
printed here. Ponds (Oakland), 1710; records destroyed about 
1S80, by tire. Paramus, i 725 ; no marriage records have been 
preserved before iSoo. English Neighboriiood (now Leonia), 
1770; no records prior to 1S13. Tliere were two or three Lu- 
theran churches in the SadtUe River valley, some of them dat- 
ing well back toward 1700, antl tiiere may be early marriage 
records kept by their pastors, but the editor has not been able 
to find them. There was a French Reformed church near 
Ilackensack before 1700, but its records are not known to ex- 



In Essex county there were these churches previous to iSoo, 
in the chronological order given : First Presbyterian, of New- 
ark, 1667; Reformed (Dutch), at Second River (Belleville), 
1700; Orange Presbyterian, about 1719; Reformed (Dutch), 
at Fairfield, 1720; Trinity (Episcopal), of Newark, about 
1743; Christ (Episcopal), Belleville, about 1755; Lyons 
Farms Baptist, 1769; ('aldwell Presbyterian, about 17S0; 
Bloomfield Presbyterian, 1798. The writer has been unable to 
discover any marriage records of these cburclies except the in- 
complete registers of the Belleville Reformed church, and 
those of the Lyons Farms Baptist church. All the records of 
the First Presbyterian church existing at the time of the Revo- 
lution are understood to have been lost or destroyed in that 
troublous period, and the writer has been informed that the 
church possesses no marriage records earlier than 1S50. The 
records of the Fairfield church are believed to have been de- 
stroyed in a fire which consumed the parsonage about 1S75. 
The records of Trinity church in the eighteenth century were ex- 
amined some years since by the writer, who found them to be 
very fragmentary, with no marriage registers among them. 
The session records of the First Presbyterian church of Orange 
are imderstooil to have been ilestroyed by fire in 1S02. Those 
in existence begin January 30, 1S03. 

It is a monotonous history of disaster to church records thus

numerated — "destroyed by fire," and empliasi/.es the import- 
ance of a work like this, which multiplies anti so preserves 
such recortU beyond the cluince of destruction. By a singular 
irony of fate, however, a large collection of copies of other 
church records, which had been procured during a long period 
of years by the editor with infinite labor and much expense 
for a second volume like this, went the way of so many origi 
als, in a single night, in the great Paterson fire, February ?--9, 
iyo2. If time and opportunity permit perhaps the ei*" ^ to 
gatiier another volume of such material may be renewed. Jut

In this connection the work of the Holland Society, in New 
York, and of the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania is wor- 
tliy of commendation. The former has caused copi<ti to be 
made of all the records of the oUl Reformed Dutch chi/^ches in 
New Jersey, and has published those of the Hackensack and 
Schraalenburgh churches to iSoo. It is expected that others 
will follow. The latter Society, organized so lat" ' 1892, has 
procured copies of the records of. a large numb- 1 of churches 
of various denominations in the southern part S New Jersey, 
:ind has them bound in stout quarto volumes, well indexed, 
which are preserved in the fireproof rooms of the Historical So- 
ciety of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia. It is intended to pub- 
lish shortly the records of St. Mary's Ciiurch at Burlington, 
which dates back to 1704, and which nimibered among its 
members many of the most prominent men in New Jersey, 
ill the Provincial era. These records were copied for the 
New Jersey Historical Society, but for the purpose of publi- 
cation were placed at the disposal of the sister Pennsylvania 
Society.

Church records of baptisms and marriages have a quasi- 
public character, especially as they are required by statute, and 
in view of this fact there has been legislation in some quarters 
making it the duty of the churches to provide safe receptacles 
tor such records, to protect them against loss by fire, damp, or 
otlicr exposure. In England, Ireland and Scotland the 
(jliuiclies must either make such provision, or deposit their rec- 
oiils ir. the Public Record Office, at London, Dublin or Edin- 
hiirgli, respectively. In Massachusetts, the Public Record

the importance of protecting their records, with much success. 
A word as to the Index to Marriage Bonds and Licenses. 
The bonds were printed blanks, which were filled in by the 
officers of the locality where the parties lived, so that there is 
no standard of handwriting by which the names can be deci- 
phercd, and as for the signatures, no man is compelled to write 
his name legibly. So there may easily be errors in the index. 
Moreover, the chirography of the index itself is not exactly of 
the copperplate order, and so the difficulty of getting the 
names of the licensees dbrrectly into print has been considem- 
ble. In cases of doubt reference was had to the originals, and 
the expert skill of Alexander II. Rickey, the former Assistant 
Secretary of St.ite, or of John R. B. Smith, the present Assist- 
ant Secretary, was called into requisition, and always placed at 
the editor's service with unfailing readiness and courtesy.

The Marriage Ceremony. 



I. INTRODUCTION. 

PUl.Mirn'K .MAKKlAtiE CUSTOMS. 

The earliest writings in relation to marriage indicate that 
the hritle was captured from another tribe, or was purchased, 
either by gifts to her tribe or her parents, or to herself.' Under 
such customs there would be little or no ceremony accompany- 
ing the transaction, and the records are silent as to the exist- 
ence of any special forms. The Old Testament contains many 
accounts of marriages, but in no instance refers to any particu- 
lar usage that was observed. Homer shows that marriage 
was merely a matter of capture or purchase, without any cer- 
emony.- From that wonderful collection of ancient folk- 
lore, the Arabian Nights, we get the same impression. The 
lolk-lore of other peoples, ante-dating their historic period, is 
invariably silent as to the performance of any marriage ritual. 
This imiversal recognition of marriage without any fixed 
formula or ceremony, antedating, as it does, any existing 
municipal or canonical law on the subject, may be regarded as 
the universal common law of marriage, based upon the actual 
fact of continuous, pul)lic cohabitation as husl)and and wife. 
As Grotius puts it : " We fmd Marriage (taken naturally) to 
be nothing else, but such co-hal)itation of a man with a 
woman, as placeth the Woman, as it were, under the eye (that 
is) under the safeguard of the Man." 

KOMAN MARK I AGE LAW. 

For the evolution of the law in relation to marriage, we 

1 The most recent investi'^'-ations of unthropolOKists do not bear out the claim 
of M' Lennan (" Pi-imitive Marriage") that this was the universal, or even the 
most general, practice in iDrehistoric times, or amons the most primitive peo- 
ples, or in all savage tribes. .See •• Ancient Society," by L. H Mor>;an. New 
York, 187S. Chap. V; WesLermarck's "History of Marriage, '" London, liioj. A 
discussion of this pliase of the subject is. lu^wever, foreign to the purpose of this 
writing.

X ROMAN MARRIAGE LAW. 

are accustomed to look to the Roman law, and its gradual de- 
velopment into the modern municipal, civil and canonical law 
of marriage. 

Among the Romans no special ceremony was required to 
establish the relation. It was enough that a man and a 
woman, to whose union there was no legal impediment, from 
nearness of kin or from any other cause, lived together as hus- 
band and wife, giving themselves out as such : the law recog- 
nized tlie consent of the parties thus expressed as sutficient to 
constitute the legal obligation of matrimony. There were, 
however, formalities specially designed and frequently used for 
this object : 

1. The cof?farrcatio^ a religious rite; 

2. The co-empiio, a higher form of civil marriage; and 
3 The US71S, the lower form of civil marriage. 

I . Confarreatio was solemnized in the presence of the Pon- 
tifex Maximus or the Flamen Dialis (priest of Jove) and ten 
witnesses. The pontiff offered a sacrifice of an ox, or of 
fruits, in the presence of the attending witnesses. The con- 
tracting parties were seated on the same sheepskin. Certain 
customary forms of words were uttered, and a salt cake of far 
or rice was presented as an offering, and tasted by the couple. 
From this the ceremony had its name, cottfarreatio^ixoxw far- 
reus^ i. e.^farrais panis^ cake of meal or flour. This rice cake 
indicated the ancient food of Italy, and served as an emblem of 
their mystic union of mind and body. Or, it may be more 
correct to say that this was a trace of an ancient usage, by which 
the wife, partaking of the food of her husband's tribe, became 
adopted into the tribe, to some extent, while remaining under 
the tutelage or guardianship of her husband :^ as tlie Romans 

1 When the Navajos [of Arizona and New Mexico] desire to marry. " they sit 
down on opposite sides of a basket, made to hold water, filled with atole or some 
other food, and partake of it. This simple proceeding makes them husband and 
wife." We have the like in the old Roman form of confarreatio— marriage con- 
stituted by jointly eating a cake. These indications that the'eariiest marriage 
ceremony was simply a formal commencement of living together, imply a preced- 
ing time whenjthe living together began informally.— /^rinc/pJes of Socioloo'J. by 
Herbert Spencer. New York. 1880, I.. 633. '-It is manifest that monogamy has 
long been growing innate in the civilized man "— fOirt., 704. But may not this 
t'ommunion in eating have had a ceremonial signiflcaiion us a propitiatory sacri- 
fice to the tribal god;' 



ROMAN MARRIAGE LAW. xi 

expressed it, covcnirc hi ///aniim viri — to come under the hand 
of lier husband. Her position was thus much the same, in 
tact, as hitei" under the English common hivv. 

3. Co-emplio was the solemn binding of the wedding 
couple to each other, by giving and taking a piece of money. 
The wife fulfilled the co-emption by purchasing, with three 
pieces of copper, a just introduction to her husband's house 
and household duties. Co-emptio was a sort of symbolic pur- 
chase of the wife by the husband, from the family to which she 
belonged, per ccs ct libratn^ in the presence of five witnesses, 
and a sixth as libripcns^ or balance-holder. The precise words 
and actions used in the co-emptio are not known, but doubt- 
less they resembled those used in the tbrm of sale called nian- 
clpatio. The effect of this ceremony was the same as in the 
confarrcatio^ in bringing the woman under the hand or power 
of the husband. This was the more frequent marriage custom 
among the Romans, and was still in use in the time of Gains, 
but gradually disappeared. 

3. Usus^ the third and lowest lorm of marriage, was with- 
out any ceremony, being foumled, as the word implies, on pre- 
scription, by the woman co-habiting with the man as her hus- 
band for a whole year, without having been absent from his 
house for three whole nights in succession. The uninterrupted 
possession of a wife for one year gave the husband the same 
rights he would have acquired at the outset if married with 
confarreatio or co-emptio. The privilege reserved to the wife 
of defeating the usus and avoiding the husband's power by a 
three nigh:s' absence in each year was expressly granted by the 
Twelve Tables. 1 From being thus constantly evaded usus 
gradually declined, and although Cicero alluded to it as still 
subsisting in his day. Gains, two centuries later, describes it as 
obt,olete. 

The Roman principle was that the consent of the parties 
v\'as requiied, not only for contracting marriage, but for con- 
tinuing it, and that hence it could be terminated at any time by 

1 The existeiu'c of this n:arria;,'e cusiom, ami of the trinoctuim, can hardly 
have dated liauk to the fifth century B. C, and this particular provision of the 
Twelve Tables is probably at least a century later. See La Storia di Roma, by 
Ettore Pais. Rome. lh'£»y. Vol. I. 



XU ECCLESIASTICAL REGULATION OF MARRIAGES. 

either party, by the simple announcement of the fact. In the 
case of the confarreatio^ however, a religious rite, called diffat-- 
eatio^ was requisite to dissolve the obligation. The result was 
that the freer form of marriage was resorted to — what might 
be called the common law form — dispensing with all rites and 
ceremonies, and this prevailed in the time of Justinian. This

ECCLESIASTICAL REGULATION OF MARRIAGES. 

While it is not unlikely that the Christian church looked 
with great tiisfavor upon the increasing laxity of the marriage 
relation in the Roman Empire, it does not appear that any at- 
tempt was made by the church to assert or to exercise any au- 
thority in the matter. "•Marriage was celebrated in the presence 
of the priests," we are told, " and was confirmed by some ob- 
lation," in the Hrst three centuries of the new era,- but this was 
apparently a survival of the pagan custom. In the false de- 
cretals (said to be unknown to all the ancient fathers, to all 
the popes, and all the ecclesiastical authorities that wrote be- 
fore the ninth century), a letter attributed to Pope Evarestus 
relates to clandestine marriage, and several ceremonies con- 
nected wi*^h that "sacrament," all of which by no means agreed 
with the avowals of Evarestus." St. Ambrose, cir. 3S0, held 
that "it is the actual consent of the parties, that makes mar- 
riage, though it were never consummated."'* Pope Nicholas,

A. D. S5S-867, directed that after the betrothinu' the priest 
ought to cause the persons to come into the church with their 
otierings, and there give tliem his benediction. Jjut it was 
still held that "consent, according to the laws, might suffice ; 
if that be wanting, the rest signifies nothing."' Numerous 
canons concerning marriage were prescribed during the ninth 
century, showing the disposition of the church to regulate the 
matter, but it does not appear that any special form or ceremo- 
ny was prescribed or suggested." The Emperor Leo the Phil- 
osopher, A. D. SS6, declared ecclesiastical benetliction neces- 
sary to marriage, but his constitution was in force only in the 
Eastern Empire. In the History of Gregory of Tours, mar- 
riage is treated as a civil contract." In 944 King Edward of Eng- 
land held an assembly of prelates and lords, in which he made 
laws for the regulatingof marriage solemnities.^ This was a qua- 
si recognition of the rights of the clergy in consiilering so impor- 
tant a subject, but it also seems to indicate that he regarded it 
as a matter for civil regulation. At the Council of Rouen, A. 
D.' 1072, it was decided that "no marriages shall be solemnized 
privately, nor after meals ; but that the bridegroom and bride 
being fasting shall be blessed by a priest in like manner fasting, 
and that before Jic -proceed to marry theni^ inquiry shall be 
made, whetlier the parties be in relation in the seventh degree 
of consanguinity."'' Here it is plainly indicated that the cere- 
mony was celebrated by a priest. Ivo, Bishop of Chartres, 
who died Dec. 33, 111=;, wrote 2S7 letters, which are publislied. 
One of them (cxxiii) refers to a priest who had made use of 
other ceremonies and words "than are prescribed in the form 
of marriage."" The annals of the church are increasingly full 
of orders, canons, discussions and controversies on the subject, 
but are singularly lacking in particulars as to the actual relig- 
ious ceremonies observed at marriages. Tarticularlv is there 
manifest a growing hostility to clandestine marriages, by which 
are oiwiously meant any contracted without the authority of

tlie church. In the thirteenth century such marriages were for- 
bidden in some ecclesiastical jurisdictions. Pope Innocent 
III., 119S-1216, was greatly interested in the subject, and 
wrote many letters on various points that were submitted to 
him regarding marriage and divorce.^ "What punishment 
ought to be inflicted on those priests who celebrate marriages 
during Lent? The priests ought to be punished, but the mar- 
riages are lawful," was the decision of Manuel Charitopula, 
Patriarch of Constantinople, A. D. 1221-1226.- This again 
sliows that it was quite usual, at least, to have marriages cele- 
brated by the priests The fourth John Lateran council, A. 
D. 12 [5, prohibited (51st canon) clandestine marriages, and 
ordered that the priests should publish the banns in the church- 
es, and prescribed penalties for those countenancing or author- 
izing "insidious or clandestine marriages."^ The Council of 
Chateau-Gonthier, held by the Archbishop of Tours, A. D. 
1 23 1, prohibited under pain of excommunication the contract- 
ing of marriages until after the banns had been published "in 
the usual manner," that so "an encouragement to marry may 
be granted and given in the face of the congregation."^ The 
Council of Courdeaux, in 1262, decreed that those who con- 
tracted clandestine marriages, both ministers and witnesses, 
s'lould be excommunicated and suspended by officio and benefi- 
cio, and that "those marriages shall be reckoned clandestine, 
which are not contracted (celebrated) by the proper curate or 
pastor of the husband or the wife, with the consent of the oth- 
er ciu'ate."' In the fourteenth century numerous councils in 
Europe and England pronounced against clandestine marria- 
ges, without the publication of banns, and in some instances 
decreed the excommunication of "all persons who procured 
them, or were present at them."''' Clandestine marriages, and 
the obligation of publishing banns of intended matrimony, 
were the subjects of decrees by various local councils in the 
fifteenth century.' The fact of this continuous legislation by 
the church, century after century, indicates that civil marriages 
were very generally in vogue, if, indeed, they were not the

rule; but it is also evident that the jurisdiction of the chuich 
was gradually and steadily extending over the sul)ject, and that 
ecclesiastical forms were coming into use, and especially the 
practice of public ceremonies, by the piiest, "in the face of the 
church" or congregation. The Council of Trent, 1537-1=^64, 
took a decisive step on November 11, IS63, in anathematizing 
those who should teach that mairiage was not'one of the seven 
sacraments^ instituted by Jesus Christ, and declared that after 
that date all marriages not contracted in the presence of a priest 
and two or three witnesses should be void.- It also provided 
that "Before the consummation of the marriage, three publi- 
cations of l)anns must l)e made in church, so that if there be 
any impediment, it may be more easily shown; unless the or- 
dinary judge should deem it expedient to omit the said banns, 
which is, therefore, recommended to his good care."" The 
Dean of Sorbonne in opposing the decree quaintly argued that 
the first marriage, between Adam and Eve, which was the pat- 
tern for all others, was contracted privately, witliout witnesses ^ 
This, then, was the canon law throughout Western Europe, 
wherever the sway of the Roman church was recognized. 
The spread of the Reformation hindered the acceptance of the 
canon in Sweden, in the Protestant states of Germany, in Hol- 
land, and largely in England and Scotland, although it was 
later accepted l)y the English church, according to eminent au- 
thorities. Aside from the doarma that iDarriage was a sacra-

''By calling it a sacrament the priests drew to themselves the hearing of causes 
of matrimony, for it was a spiritual matter, which profane judges might not med- 
dle with." Calvin wished marriages to be celebrated with great solemnity: he 
directed the bridal party "to proceed to the church without the beating of drums 
or music, but seriously, as became Christians, as soon as the bells ceased: and 
the ceremony was to he performed before the sermon, in the presence of the 
whole congregation."— /jO'f n"rt Times of John Calvin, by Paul Henry, New York,

ment, the iiisistment that the ceremony should take place in 
public, before the congregation, by a priest, and in the pres- 
ence of two witnesses, and only after the publication of the 
banns, undoubtedly commended itself to the clergy of all 
countries, and to right-thinking persons generally. 

Running all through the church regulations on the subject of 
marriage is manifest a constant disposition to recognize the 
binding force of the marriage contract, or betrothal — probably 
a trace of the Roman respect for mutual obligations,' of what- 
ever kind. A contract or engagement of marriage was regard- 
ed as having almost the binding force of a marriage itself. 
This suggests a survival of the idea that the mutual contract be- 
tween the parties actually constituted the marriage, and the func- 
tion of the Roman pontifex, or later of the priest or the church, 
was merely to sanctify or sanction the imion by its blessing, 
or by other ceremonies, added to from time to time. When 
Henry VIII. of England had been married twenty years, and 
wished a new wife, he suddenly bethought him that his spouse 
iiad been previously engaged to his older brother, and although 
her betrothed died before marriage, nevertheless that contract 
constituted him virtually her husband, whereby she became as 
a sister to Henrv VIII., whose marriage to her was therefore 
incestuous. And of course the royal monarch found many 
learned schoolmen, ecclesiastics and others, to argue in his fa- 
vor, and to adduce countless citations from the fathers of the 
church to support his and their contentions, many of which are 
set forth at great length in the Appendix to Bishop Burnet's 
History of the Reformation in England. Illustrations of the 
importance attached to contracts of marriage will be found 
further on in these pages, especially among those people most 
accustomed to the Roman, and later to the Roman-Dutch law. 
The history of the Christian, and especially of the Roman 
church, indicates a steadily-growing disposition to elevate the 
character of the marriage tie b>' throwing about it the aigis of 
its authority ; by discountenancing private marriages ; by en- 
couraging, by urging, and finally 1)}' commantling that all mar-

tum (contract), and the sponnalia (beti-othing) .

riages should he celehrated puhlicly, hy its authority alone, and 
by its ministers. Its recogirtion of the sacredness of private 
contracts, even without suhsequent consummation, weakened 
the force of its contentions to some extent. 

Consistent with its position regarding the sacredness of the 
marriage tie was its attitude, expressed in the seventh canon of 
the decree concerning matrimony and divorce, adopted by the 
Council of Trent, that marriage, being a sacrament, was in- 
dissoluble, for any cause whatsoever. In practice, however, 
it was permitted to annul a marriage, when it could be shown 
that it had been improperly or unlawfully contracted. As this 
was a difficult and expensive process, it was available only by 
the rich and powerful.' 

Such was the sentiment of the strongest and most repre- 
sentative Christian body in the world, in the middle of the six- 
teenth century, as crystalized into the enduring decree of the 
Council of Trent. It has been stdadily adhered to by that 
church, and its influence has been felt ever since throughout 
Western Christenilom, for the conservation of the sacredness 
of the marriage tie. 

II. FORIVIATIVE INFLUENCES AS TO THE LAW 
OF MARRIAGE IN NEW JERSEY. 

In the settlement oi' New Jersey four nationalities were 
prominent and influential in this chronological order: 
I. The Dutch. 
II. The Swedes. 

III. The English. 

IV. The Scotch. 

Moreover, the views of the English settlers were modified 
by the fact that many of them were 
V. New Englanders ; or 
VI. (Quakers ; or 
VII. Settlers from New York or Pennsylvania. 
All of these were Protestants, and hence dissenters from 
the dogmas promulgated by the Council of Trent; and al- 
though agreeing in the main on the subject of marriage and

Xviii DUTCH LAW OF MARRIAGE. 

divorce, approached the matter on different lines, as we shall 
proceed to show. 

I. The Dutch Law of Marriage. 
The system of jurisprudence prevailing in Holland in the 
sixteenth century was a highly-artificial modification of the ad- 
mirable Roman system, and was known as the Roman-Dutch 

Law. 

Grotius recognizes the fact that in Holland, as in other 
countries, "in olden times marriage was contracted without 
much ceremony; in some places by mere cohabitation (concu- 
bitus) with the knowledge of the nearest relations on both 
sides." This, however, frequently proved troublesome and 
dangerous, as it sometimes happened that persons contracted 
marriages in violation of former promises, or within the pro- 
scribed degrees of blood or affinity, or without the previous 
consent of those who should have been consulted in the matter. 
In order to obviate all this, the States, in 1580, adopted certain 
regulations (a Political Ordinance) on the subject, which also 
agreed with the ecclesiastical law. The essential requisites 
thus prescribed were as follows; 

All persons who desired to marry must appear before the 
court of justice or the minister of the church of their place of 
abode, where they had had their last fixed residence for a year 
and a day, and there request the publication of the banns on 
three successive Sundays or market-days, in the church, or court- 
house (or other place where the court was held), so that those 
who wisheil to raise any objections might do so in the mean- 
time, on pain of forfeiting their right to object. It was under- 
stood that "the three publications of the banns being simply to 
protect the rights of a third party, and that" marrying in the 
church was but a mere outward ceremony, by way of public 
confirmation," that provision could be dispensed with, with 
"the previous consent of the Government, after inquiry into 
the circumstances ; the third party, however, retaining his right, 
if any, so far as the three publications of banns were con- 
cerned." It was regarded as uncertain whether the ordinary 
(or ecclesiastical) judge could remit the banns, as authorized 
by the Council of Trent, Holland being a Protestant country, 



DUTCH LAW OF MARRIAGE. XIX. 

especially as the Political Ordinance provided (Art. 3) for the 
punishment of those who violated the regulations therein pre- 
scribed, and ignored the jui isdiction of the ordinary in the prem- 
ises. The law was verv strict on these points, so much so that 
if there were the least deviation therefrom the transaction was 
not regarded as a marriage ; without prejudice, however, to the 
right of anyone, acquired by previous promise of marriage, to 
prosecute the same at law. Such promise hatl to be as clearly 
proved as any other contract, without the defendant being bound 
on the mere accusation of the plaintiff to clear himself on oath. 
On the other hand, a marriage in the church or before the civil 
authorities, completed as above, had its full force, so that all 
rights arising out of the marriage vested and took effect at once, 
although not followed by concubitus ; as was understood of a 
newly-married couple wlio, on their way home from their wed- 
ding, were both drowned. 

Other wholesome provisions of the same Ordinance were 
to the effect that no banns should be granted to young men un- 
der the age of twenty-ffve, or to young women under the age of 
twenty, until proof given of the voluntary consent of the pa- 
rents, or the survivor of them, such consent being of the es- 
sence of the marriage ; so that a marriage contracted without 
the parents' consent was per se void. If the parties were of 
the ages specified, the parents were obliged to give their con- 
sent, or to show good and lawful grounds for their refusal. To 
that end they could be summoned before the consistory of the 
church, or the civil authorities, to state their reasons. If they 
did not appear their silence was considered as consent; if they 
did appear and their reasons were not held to be good ami law- 
ful, the banns were granted. Then, if no objection was made 
in the meantime, the petitioners could and must be married in 
church, or before the court of justice, in a lawful and public 
manner. The consent of guardians or relatives (other than 
parents) was not requisite.' 

The power of annulling or dissolving marriages or mar- 
riage contracts was reserved to the civil authority.

XX A NEW NETIIERI.AND MARRIAGE CONTRACT. 

The Political Ordinance of 15S0 was in line with the laws 
and customs of Holland from time immemorial, particularly in 
so far as it recognized the civil power in the regulation of mar- 
riages. Hence, the Hollanders who came to New Netherland 
brought with them the manners and customs of the Vaderland, 
as crystalized into statutes, the law being sufficiently elastic 
to be readily adapted to novel conditions in the New World. 

The earliest recorded instance of a marriage contract in 
New Netherland is that of Jan Jacobsen and Maritje Pieters, 
found in the New York Colonial Manuscripts, Vol. I., page 
153, for the translation of which the writer is indebted to the 
courtesy of the late George R. Howell, Archivist of New York. 
It bears date, fifteenth of August, 1639, and reads thus: 

In the name of God, amen. Be it known unto all men that on the 15th of August 
in the year 1639, before me Cornelius van Tienhoven; Secretary residing in New 
Netherland on the behalf of the Incorporated West India Company, and the un- 
dersigned witnesses, appeared the worthy Jan Jacobsen from Vrelant, future 
bridegroom, assisted by Marit.ie Peters from Copenhagen, his future bride, on 
the other part, and they the appearers declared that they had mutually resolved, 
engaged and agreed to enter together the holy state of matrimony, and that under 
the following nuptial contract, praying the Almighty God that his divine Majesty 
would be pleased to bless their future marriage and let it redound to his honor. 

First, in regard to the property which he, the bridegroom, sha,ll leave behind, 
in case he come to die, whether movable or immovable, or such as may rightly 
belong to him, it shall belong in free propriety to Marritje Peters aforesaid, with- 
out any of Jan Jacobsen's blood relations having any claim tliereto. On the 
other hand if Marritje Peters, the future bride, first happen to die, Jan Jacobsen 
shall, in like manner, own all her means and goods, whether movable or immov- 
able, in free propriety, without his giving any account thereof to any of her 
blood relations. Provided always that he, the bridegroom, or she. the bride, 
aforesaid, whichever of them both come to live the longest, shall not possess the 
property longer than to the day of his or her death, and then be partitioned and 
divided by the brothers or lawful heirs of him. the bridegroom, and Teuntje Jeu- 
riaens of Amsterdam, or Jacob Bronc, her present husband, as heirs of Maritje 
Pieters aforesaid, each the just half. 

Thus done and executed in the presence of the undersigned witnesses in Fort 
Amsterdam, this day and year aforesaid. 

This is the -|— mark of 
Jan Jacobsen above named. 

This is the M mark of 
Marritje Peters above named.

The earliest recorded marriage, and which antedates the 
Records of the Dutch Church in New York, is that of Thomas 
de Conine and Marritje Frans van Betts, and bears date 32 
September, 1639. It is found in N. Y. Colonial Manuscripts,

The above named persons a,re therefore this day at their re(in(.'st united in

The importance of a marriage contract was recognized by 
the anthorities of New Amsterdam in a proceeding brought 
before the Burgomasters and Scliepens, February 24, ^653, by 
Peter Kock, an unmarried burgher and inhabitant of that city, 
against Annetie Cornelissen van Vorst, spinster^ living at Ahas- 
imus (now a part of Jersey City). Jacob StotTelsen, stepfather 
of defendant, appeared before the court and the litigants handed 
in some writings, presenting their respective sides of the case. 
The court ordered copies to be furnished to the parties, and that 
defendant appear in person, which she did March 10, and put in 
her answer. Various pleadings were presented to the court 
iVom time to time, and that l)ody finding the subject too grave 
tor their decision, referred it, on Feb. 19, 1654, to tlie Director 
and Council of New Nelherland. They remitted the matter, 
May 4, 16^4, to the Burgomasters and Schepens, with their 
solemn decision that "suit having been entered, judgment must 
follow, and if either party, after the decision, feel aggrieved by 
the judgment of the Burgomasters and Schepens, such person 
may appeal to the Supreme Council." The case was now re- 
ferred to a committee of three, who reported two weeks later: 
that a marriage contract or an oral promise of marriage had 
Ijeen mutually entered into between the parties, and in confirm- 
ation thereof certain gifts and presents were made by tlie de- 
fendant; but in consequence of certain misbehavior (on his 
part.'') the defendant was in no wise disposed to marry said 
Pieter Kock, antl proved by two witnesses that l*ietcr had re- 
leased her, with promise to give her a written acquittal to that 
eflect. The Court thereupon adjudged : that the promise of 



XXll MARRIAGE BANNS IN NEW NETIIERLAND. 

marriage having been made and given before the Eyes of God, 
should remain in force, so that neither phiintitl nor defendant 
should be at liberty, without the knowledge and approbation of 
the magistrates and the other one of the interested parties, to 
enter into matrimony with any other person, man or woman. 
And by way of encouraging a reconciliation, the Court further 
adjudged : ""that all the presents made in confirmation of the 
promise of marriage should remain in the possession of defend- 
ant, until the parties, with the pleasure, good will, content- 
ment and inclination of both, shall marry together or with the 
knowledge of the magistrates release each other.'" 

There having appeared a tendency to ignore the law of Hol- 
land requiring the publication of the banns in the place of dom- 
icile of the parties, the Director and Council of New Nether- 
land passed an Ordinance, January 19, 1654, regulating the 
publication of Banns of Matrimony, as follows: 

The Director General and Council of New Netlierland, 

To all who hear or see these presents read, Greeting:, Make known. 

That we understand and are certainly informed by the report of our Uscal and 
others as well as by letters from Gravi^se'na dated 18 January, 1654. that the Mag 
istrates there have presumed and undertaken publickly to post notices of Mar- 
riage in regard to persons both of whom are, and for a long time have been domicil- 
iated in and about this city of Xew Amsterdam, far beyond the district of the afore- 
said village, and whereas such is in direct contradiction to both the Civil and Ec- 
clesiastical Law of the United SetlierJanOs, which not only the abovementloned 
Magistrates of Gravesencl but also all other Colonies within this Province are by 
contract and oath bound to observe; Therefore, the abovementloned Director 
General and Council order and notify the aforesaid Magistrates of Graveseiid and 
all others within this Province, to annul such posting of intentions of Marriage, 
and on sight hereof to withdraw the same, and in all cases to proceed with and 
confirm no such Marriages, either privately or publickly. before and until such 
persons, according to t\et7ierln)id style, have entered and received their bans and 
proclamations of marriage where they are dwelling and have resided the last 
year. 

Thus done in the Assembly of the Director and Council of New Xetlierland, 
this 19 January, A. D. 16.54, Xew Aiuttterdam.i 

An instance of the violation of the law of Holland requir- 
ing the publication of the banns in the place of domicile of the 
parties was brought to the attention of the New Amsterdam 
authorities on January 26, 1654, when 

Cornells van Tienhoven as Schout of this City appeared in Court and made an 
ex officio complaint of the illegal proceedings of the Court of Gravesend in setting

Kind Friends: Whereas by petition presented to our Court this day by Johan- 
nes van Beeck, he requests, that his bans with Maria Verleth may be entered and 
properly proclaimed here, and we have imderstood that the said parties have pre- 
viously made proclamation of their bans through your Court at Gravesend, which 
(under correction) is contrary to the style and laws of our Fatherland, it is our 
request to your Honbie Court, in case such a circumstance should hereafter occur, 
that we may be informed thereof in order to prevent all improprieties, which we 
on our part engage to do in like manner, especially as it is usual, according to the 
custom of our Fatherland, that everyone shall have three publications at the 
place where his domicile is and then he may go and be married where he pleases. 

Arent van Hattem. 
New Amsterdam. 

While these formal proceedings were going on with great 
deliberation the young people became impatient, and on Feb- 
ruary 16, 1654. appeared in Court and " prayed most earnestly 
that a disposal may be made of the petition and remonstrance 
concerning the marriage between said van Beeck and Mary 
Verlet, presented to the Court." 

Three days later Johannes van Beeck requested as before, 
'' that action may I)e had on his petition, offering furthermore, 
if necessary, to affirm under oath wliat he has stated in his pe- 
tition respecting the private conversation with Hon'''"' Petrus 
Stuyvesant." 

"The Court having seen and examined the petition, presented on the 10th and 
16th last, regarding the marriage bans of Johan van Beeck and Maria Verleth, it 
is noted 

1st. Who in the beginning instituted marriage; also wluit the Apostle of the 
Gentiles teaches about it. 

2d. The age resp. attained l)y Joh. van Beeck and Maria Verleth. 

3d. The consent of the girl's parents. 

4th. The distance and remoteness of this place from tlie Fatherland and the 
quarrels between Holland and England. 

oth. The danger that in such circumstances a long delay might disclose mat- 
ters between these .\oung people, which would bring disgrace to both families. 

'Tis true, that our Theologians correctly say that we must not tolerate or per- 
mit lesser sins, in order thereby to avoid greater ones. Therefore we think (with 
due submission), tliat by a proper solemnization of marriage the lesser and great-

er sins are prevented, for the Apostle to tlie Hebrews calls the marriage-bed hon- 
orable and the Court opines, that the proper ecclesiastical proclamations of the 
aforesaid young people ought to be made at the earliest opportunity, to be follow- 
ed by their marriage. 

The would-be bridegroom did not care a fig for the theol- 
ogical or moral disquisition, and two weeks later '• advertised 
by a poster, that his marriage, contracted not only without his 
father's knowledge, but contraiy to his express prohibition to 
marry al^road, had Ijeen declareil lawful and i:>roper l)y a reso- 
lution of the Burgomasters and Schepens of this City of New 
Am'"." Of this resolution it seems the Director General and 
Council were ignorant, and they therefore requested "an authen- 
tic copy thereof and at the same time in writing the reasons, why 
said resolution was not communicated to us and approbation 
thereof applied for, according to the Instructions given to the 
Inferior Court of this City." 

A curious sequel to this tempest in a teapot appears in the 
following entry, under date of Febiuary S, 1656: 

Maria Verleth vs. Joost van Beeek. Pltf. demands her letters, deposited yes- 
terday with the Secretary. Deft, maintains, as the marriage between Jonhannes 
van Beeck (now deceased), and Maria Verleth is not yet declared legal, the let- 
ters are not hers, until the marriage be legalized But if the marriage be declared 
lawful by the Court, Supreme Council and Consistory, he consents she should 
have them. He desires them now only as his legal right and requests that guar- 
dians be appointed. Maria Verleth declares, that not being a Burgher here, but 
a stranger, an inhabitant and Burgher of Hartford in New England, she is not 
bound to accept guardians Irere. She requests quick dispatch, unless the Couit 
will declare her marriage either lawful or unlawful. 

Inasmuch as the Court has never been informed, that the marriage between 
Johan van Beeck and Maria Verleth is declared illegal, but on the contrary, this 
Court has by order of Febr. 19, IS.M, considered that respect must be paid to the 
proclamation of the church and consequently to the marriage tie between said 
young people, they cannot then pronounce the marriage illegal. 1 

Other irregularities concerning marriage were aimed at in 

the follovying 

Ordinance of the Director General and Council of New Netherland to oblige 
parties to Marry after the publication of their Bans, passed 15 January, 1658. 

Whereas the Director General and Council of Aei« Xetlierhind not only are in- 
formed, but have even seen and remarked, that some persons, after the proclama- 
tion and publication, for the third time, of their Bans or Intentions of Marriage, 
do not proceed further with the solemnization of their Marriage as they ought, 
but postpone it from time to time, not only weeks, but some months, which is di- 
rectly contrary to, and in contravention of the good order and custom of our Fath- 
erland, wherein being willing to provide, in order to prevent the mischiefs and 
irregularities which will flow therefrom; 

Therefore the Director General and Council aforesaid do hereby Ordain that 
all published persons, after three proclamations have been made and no lawful

month at furthest, after the hist proclamation, or within that time, appear and 
show cau.se where they ought, for refusing: and that on pain of forfeiting Ten 
guilders for the lirst week after the expiration of the aforesaid month, and for the 
.succeeding weeks '20 guilders for each \vcek._ until they have made known the rea- 
sons for refusing. 

Furthermore, no Man and Woman shall he at liberty to keep house as married 
persons, before and until they are lawfully married, on pain of forfeiting One hun- 
dred guilders, more or less, as their tiuality shall be foimd to warrant, and all 
such persons may be amerced anew therefor every mouth by the Oftlcer, accord- 
ing to the order and the custom of our Father! and. i 

The Burgonia.sters and Schepens of New Amsterdam, sit- 
ting as a court, frequently exercised jurisdiction in divorce 
cases. It does not appeal that such cases were regarded as com- 
ing within the authority of the church. A few extracts will 
suffice : 

November 4. l('>.ili. — Nicolas yclthuysen is asked liy the Court, why he has 
turned his wife out of the house and why he will not live with her? He answers, 
he has not done so. but gave her a- l)low. because she took his money, that he had 
laid away inliis chest. ~ — - Aaltye (Lubberts)^ denies having taken the 
money. Nicolas replying says, that he gave her child money to buy one thing or 
another to eat. as the child would not eat what was put on the table and what 
they ate: he requested separation from bed and board. Whereupon he is told, 
his wife is jiregnant by him and the child will require maintenance. Answering 
he offers to maintain the child, when it comes, and to send her home a fat hog of 
100 pounds weight two skepels of wheat, one skepel of maize and then nothing 
more. He is asked, if he cannot resolve to live again in love with his wife, and 
answers, his inclination and will do not tend that way, and he has no disposition 
towards her. — — Nicolas Velthuysen and his wife having been heard in 
Court, it is decided, whereas Nicolas cannot resolve to live any more in love with 
her, he shall provisionally supply her with one fat hog, "3 skepels of wheat and one 
of maize, according to his own offer for her support, and further disposition shall 
be made for the maintenance of her and her child by him.''' 

December 0. Iti.iit.— The .Schout. Nicasius de Sille. requests by petition divorce 
and separation of marriage, in such manner as the law allows, between himself 
and his wife Catliarina Croegcrs on account of her unbecoming and careless life, 
both by her wasting of property without his knowledge and her habitual public 
drunkenness. Decision: Regard being had to the position of the petitioner, he is 
referred to the Director General and Council.* 

.lune 22, 166.5.— Lodowyck Pos(t* his wife and davighter, wife of Arent Juriansen 
I^autsman, entering, said Lautsman's wife requests to be divorced from her hus- 
band, as she cannot keep house with him. Decreed to postpone the matter until 
next Court day, when said Lautsman is to be heard, and Lodowyck Pos is allowed 
to retain his daughter during that time.

hereof is on request ordered to be xiven lo party to answer in writing next Court 
day and to appear himself in person, and Arent requests copy of whatever papers 
his wife may tile. Decision: Petitioner's request is granted 

July 4, 1565. — Lodowyclc Pos vs. Arent Lautsman. Pltf. complaining' as father 
of Beletje Lodowyc.x, maketh known the unchristian and insufferable treatment 
andbeh'aviour of deft. tov:ard5said Beletje, def t's lawful wife, exhibiting divers at- 
testations, etc., and demanding that deft, shall be condemned in such penalty as the 
Magistrates may deem proper, and further that his said daughter Beletje Jacobsen 
be not constrained to return again to her husband against her will. Deft, answer- 
ing denies, that he has improperly treated his wife, but says, they had some differen- 
ces, whereof said Lodowck Pos and his wife were the principal cause.s, exhibiting 
a declaration to that effect, requesting that his wife be obliged again to return to 
him and he promising to live henceforth with her as man and wife ought to do. 
PJtf. replying says, that he has now been three times before the Court concerning 
improper treatment of his daughter by the deft., who each time promised amend- 
ment, but never kept his promise; therefore he persists in his suit. The Deputy 
Mayor and Aldermen having heard the debates of parties on both sides— post- 
pone the decision of the Court to next Court day and meanwhile their Worships 
shall authorize some honorable and fitting per.-ion lo reconcile, if possible, the 
parties to love and friendship— if not, to report. 

July 11, 1665 —Arent Lautsman communicates by petition in substance, that he 
and his wife were, pursuant to order of July 4, with Rev. Ministers De Johannes 
Megapolensis and D^ Samuel Driesius, but that his wife's parents would not come 
to any agreement nor listen or submit to the advice of the Ministers. He requests 
therefore, that the Court would please to order his wife to return to him. as he no 
longer could live without a wife, again promi-iing to live with her as an honest 
man ought to do. Whereupon Arent's wife appearing, assisted by her father, and 
the request having been read to her, she was asked, if for this time she would not 
go with her husband on the promise of amendment given by him; she answers: 
No. as he had already repeatedly promised the same, but never kept it. The 

Mayor and Aldermen, , declare, they had contributed all in their power, as 

well through the clergymen as otherwise, to reconcile the parties in love and 
friendship, but all in vain, and whereas by divers declarations it is sufficiently ap- 
parent, that the parents, Lodowyck Pos and his wife, are the chief and principal 
cause of the trouble, which has arisen between the parties, they therefore order 
the said Lodowyck Pos not to detain the above named Beletje. wife of Ai-ent 
Lautsman, in his house beyond 14 days, within which time parties shall have to 
be reconciled to each other or in default thereof they must again m:ike joint ap- 
plication to the Court; and further said Arent Lautsman is hereby notified, that 
If again any complaints should be made of his improper behaviour, then he shall 
be delivered over to the Governor General for punishment, whether by separa- 
tion from bed and board, imprisonment or otherwise, as his Honour shall deem 
proper as an example to other evil householders. 

July 25, l6S5.--The petition of Arent Lautsman was read and considered, 
making complaint, that his wife still evinces her unwillingness, contrary to the 
last judgment of the 11th inst., to come home to him; also tliat his father-in-law. 
Lod. Pos, is entertaining her contrary to said judgment, and requesting the Court 
to order and constrain the said Pos not to entertain his wife any longer and 
order her to return home to the petitioner; the Mayor and Aldermen direct, thijt 
the matter be placed in the hands of the jury. The aforesaid judgment of the 
11th together with the other papers having been considered by the .lury. they de- 
cide that Beletje Lodowycks. wife of said Lautsman, shall return to her husband 
and that Lodowyck Pos shall no longer harbour her without the consent of her

As ill the case of the young couple who went from New 
Anisterdani to Gravesend to have their banns proclaimed, ap- 
parently to avoid anticipated objections, — so yoimg lovers re- 
sorted to other expedients to evade the salutary restrictions 
framed to secure due deliberation and protection in entering 
the marriage state. Witness this somewhat complicated 
affair: 

February •-•:!. 1674,— The Fisea,l, pltf. vs. Ralph Doxy. deft. Pltf. alleges that 
Deft, did on the 5th inst enter, in an unlawful manner, into the married state 
with Mary van Harris, making' use for that purpose of a forced certificate and 
that Deft, has still a wife alive residin^'• in New England; therefore concludes, 
that the Deft ought to be conveyed to the place, where justice is usually exe- 
cuted, severely whipped and furthermore banished the country forever, with 
costs. 

Deft, denies ever having been married to a woman before; acknowledges his 
guilt as regards the forgatl certifieate, says that through love for Mary Harris he 
had allowed it to b'j executed by a certain Englishman, now gone to Barljadoes 
and prays forgiveness. 

Whereas parties, on both sides, expf L't further proofs, the case is continued to 
next Court day. 

March 1, 1(57-1. —.Same case. The Govr General and Council of New Netherland 
having read and considered the papers, etc., declare the marriage of Deft, with 
Mary van Harris to be unlawful, as it was solemnized by Jacobus Fabricius [a 
Lutheran minister], who had no legal power so to act. and without his engage- 
ment having been published three times according to the laws and customs of 
the government; but finding thi? charge against him of having a second wife in 
New England unfounded, he is therefore permitted to contlrm himself in wed- 
lock with said Mary, according to the laws; in regard to the forged certificate, 
exhibited to Fabricius. he is pardoned for this on his promise of improvement 
and request for forgiveness; finally they condemn the defendant in costs, 2 

II. The Swedes. 

In the early times in Swetlen "a purchase concluded with 
the father or the nearest relative (though it was rather a sym- 
bolical expression for contiact generally) , was the legal form 
of matrimony, and made the children legitimately born (lag- 
f()dda). The legally married spouse, as distinguished from 
the woman who had been seduced or stolen away in war, was 
said to be won 'by gifts and speech' (medh nunidok medh 
madi — Law of West Gothland, Arf. B. f. 7), or was, as in 
Homer, bought with pre.sents (mundi-keypt) . The gods took 
to themselves wives after the same fashion. Thor's hammer,

laid upon the knee of the veiled bride, inaugurated her into 
her new destiny."' 

In 1614 a compilation of laws was made in Sweden for the 
direction of the whole kingdom, deficiencies in the code being 
supplied or explained by the aid of the civil law. It was this 
coinpila:ion that governed the Swedes first seeking the shores 
of the New World. 

By the charter of the Swedish West India (or Southern) 
Company, granted by Gustavus x^dolphus, King of Sweden, 
on the application of William Usselinx, the grant being dated 
December 31, 1624, and the company incorporated June 14, 
1626, it was provided that the companv should be authorized 
to "• accommodate difierences between the citizens of the coun- 
try and the natives, .... and preserve everything in good 
condition and under good order. "'- 

This was the germ of a European system of government on 
the shores of the Delaware. Doubtless the officers of the 
Company were expected to conform to the laws and customs 
of Sweden, but doubtless, also, there was a tacit understand- 
ing that in new surroundings justice must be administered in a 
rude way, as required by circumstances. The civil law pre- 
vailed in the home country, except as modified by the compila- 
tion of 1614. In religious customs the Augsburg Confession 
was the basis of ecclesiastical law and usages. But neither the 
civil law, nor the statutes nor even the " Unaltered Augsburg 
Confession" could always be made to fit the novel situations 
in the little colony on the Delaware. 

In granting permission, January 24, 1640, to a colony of 
Hollanders to settle in New Sweden, Sweden gave them 
" the right of exercising in their district high and low justice, 
of founding there cities, villages, and communities, with a 
certain police, statutes, and ordinances, to appoint magistrates 
and officers. - . . The statutes and ordinances which they in-

tend to establish, to he coinmunicated to the governor tor ap-

with him in all which may most contribiite to the advantage 
and welfare of the whole country." " As regards religion, we 
are willing to permit that, besides the Augsburg Confession, 
the exercise of the pretended rel'ormed religion may oe estab- 
lished and observed in that countr\', in such manner, however, 
that those who piofess the one or the other religion live in 
peace, alistaining from every useless dispute, from all scandal 
and all abuse."' 

\Vhen Qiieen Christina appointed, August i6, 1642, John 
Printz to be go\'ernor of New vSweden, she instiucted him " to 
render justice without distinction, so that there shall be injury 
to no one. If any person behave himself grossly, he must pun- 
ish him in a convenient manner. . . . But ai^ove all. whatever 
regards the political government and administration of justice, 
must be done in the name of her majestv. Detailed and per- 
fect instruction cannot be gi\'en. therefore it is left to the dis- 
cretion of the governor, according to circumstances." All con- 
troversies were to be decided by the laws, customs and usages 
of Sweden, and in other things he was to " adopt and follow 
the laudable customs, habits and usages of Sweden." "Above 
all things, the governor must .... take pro]Der care that 
divine service be zealously performed according to the unaltered 
Augsburg Confession, the Council of Upsala, and the cere- 
monies of the vSwedish church, having care that all men, and 
especially the young, be well instructed in the articles of their 
Christian fiith, and that a good church discipline be duly ex- 
ercised and maintained. "-' 

In the articles of capitulation between John Rysingh, 
Director of New Sweden, and Peter Stuyvesant, Director-Gen- 
eral of New Netherland, Septemljer 25, 1655, it was provided 
that those who chose to remain shonUl •' have the liberty of 
adhering to their own Augsburg Confession."'^

JCXX MARRIAGE CONTRACTS AMONG THE SWEDES. 

The Augsburg Confession, which embodied Luther's 
views, and the Ciitechisrn, explanatory thereof, did not recog- 
nize marriage as a sacrament, and while the Lutherans were 
quite strenuous in requiring the publication of banns, and the 
performing of the marriage ceremony by a clergyman, tliey 
nevertheless admitted the validity of civil marriage. 

As observed above, Director-General Stuyvesant guaran- 
teed the Swedes on the Delaware tlieir "liberty of the Augs- 
burg Confession." Their local officers were also retained, and 
even the English conquerors continued the Swedish officers for 
a time.^ We have no instances of marriages, etc., under the 
Swedish rule, but there is no doubt that Swedish customs pre- 
vailed in that region to a considerable extent until well on into 
the eighteenth century. ^ The sanctity of marriage contracts 
was recognized by the Swedes as well as by the Dutch, and 
the latter enforced the same on all occasions. Here is an in- 
stance : 

To-day. date as below, appeared before me, A. Hudde. Secretary at Fort Casi- 
mir on the South-River, appointed by the HonWe Mr. Peter Stuyvesant and High 
Council, residing at the Manhattans, in presence of the undersigned witnesses, 
the worthy Jan Pieolet. a native of Bruylet in France with the maiden Catrine 
Jans, born in Elsenburgh in Sweden. Together and each for him or herself they 
have made, of their free, jjreconsidered and unbiased will and delil>erate opinion, 
a promise of marriage, under the condition that on account of special reasons the 
marriage solemnization should be delayed, until a preacher came here. And Jan 
Pieolet promises faithfully to Catrine Jans to keep the aforesaid engagement un- 
broken, likewise Catrine Jans promises in the same manner to adhere steadily, firm- 
ly and inviolably to the promise of marriage made to Jan Pieolet, to which end we, 
the engaged, submit ourselves, each individually, to such punishment, as is ordered 
by law for convicted adulterers, if one of us or both should retract the foregoing 
promise or violate or break it. We bind us. for the vindication and .satisfaction 
of justice, to keep ourselves pure and undefiled in our engagement, until the com- 
plete consummation of the marriage, as decency and the laws of our magistrates 
require it. We declare, by signing this, that we. for further confirmation of this 
our foregoing promise, place our persons, goods, movable or immovable, now be- 
longing or hereafter commg to us, all under the control of the pertinent laws. In 
attestation of the truth we have signed this without reservation or deceit.

River of New-Netherland.

MARRIAGE CONTRACTS AMONG THE SWEDES. NXXl 

On the z^th of the follow! nor ^lay the contiactcti couple ap- 
pear before the Council, when Jan rec[uests in writing and ver- 
bally, that he might l^e discharged from his promise of mar- 
riage, made to the atoresaid Catrine Jans on January 34, 16^6, 
and tliat the samp be declared null and void. He had asked 
her, he saitl, ''with serious intention, upon honor and taith, to 
be his wife, and that he did not know else, but that she was a 
virtuous girl." About a month after, to his diiect (juestion, 
she assured hiin to that effect, and " they would have been 
married if a preacher hatl been at hand." It subsequently be- 
came evident that she was not as she pretended to be. Catrine 
then confessed to the Council that in the fall of 16^^ she liad 
l)een engaged to a soldier, who was responsible for her condi- 
tion. The Commissaries adjudged that she had gone "^outside 
of her first betiothal, from which she had not been released, 
neither by the death of the Iji idegroom nor by other lawful rea- 
sons, and had by her second betrothal deceived the plaintiff", 
contrary to the written law," and they gave judgment that the 
aforesaid Picolet be released from his betrothal and marriage 
contract aforesaid and they declared the same null, inefiectual, 
of no value and as if the same had never been made, passed, 
written nor signed." Thev moreover condemned Catrine to 
appear in Fort Casimir, and there, before the Council, to re- 
lease the plaintitT and with bent knees to ask the pardon of 
God and justice and proniise henceforth to behave as a virtu* 
ous woman." 

On June i6th the couple once more appeared before the 
Council, and having heard the al)o\e judgment, "the parties, 
giving each other the right hand, discharged one the othei' 
legally before the Council of the piomise of marriage."' 

The strict observance of the rule as to the publication of the 
banns in what was formerly New Sweden is illustrated by these 
citations :

desire to enter into matrimony. They were confirmed in marriage by the Coun- 
cil on December "24. " after proclamation of the banns on the previous .Sunday.""—

XXXU MARRIAGE CUSTOMS IN NEW SWEDEN. 

Mauri ts here present and requests that their legal bans might be published; the 
names being, of the bridegroom Willem Maurits. bachelor, from Walle Schier, 
about 33 years old, of the bride Jannetje Tomas. spinster, born in New-Nether- 
land. about 16 years old. Witness Stuyte Andries.i 

July 7, 1656. — Desiring to enter into matrimony Jacob Crabbe. bachelor, born in 
Amsterdam, and Geertruy Jacopsen from Immenes, widow of the late Roeloff de 
Haes, ask to have their matter attended to and declare besides, that they have no 
engagement with any body else.'-^ 

The Swedish Lutheran clergymen found it difficult to com- 
ply with the regulations of the Dutch rulers, and probably did 
so with an ill grace, that was resented by the new government. 
A curious case was that of the Rev. Laers Caerlsen ( Lokenii.s) , 
who was brought before the court at Altena, April 14, 1662. 
From the proceedings it appeared that his wife had eloped in 
September, [661. As he had "several children and a large 
house-hold, and so was in need of another wife, and thought that 
all that was necessary was to find one," and although "pursuant 
to the laws of our Fatherland he ought to have first asked and 
obtained a decree of divorce from the superior authority," he 
had not only waived that formality but had married himself to 
another woman. He protested that in this matter he- " had 
proceeded lawfully therein and consent was given. I have fol- 
lowed the same custom, which others have followed here, who 
have not been called up on that account. I declare on my 
conscience, that it wa^ not done with any bad intention ; had I 
known, that this self-marriage would lie thus interpreted, I 
would have willinglv submitted to tlie usages of the Reformed 
church, which were not known to me."-^ During the period of 
his suspension Director-General Stuyvesant gianted him a 
divorce and validated the second marriage, after which Mr. 
Laers was again invested with his gown. 

Again, in 167.4, another Lutheran minister, the Rev. Jaco- 
bus Fabricius, was suspended from his ministerial functions for 
one year, by the Governor-General and his Council, for hav- 
ino- married a couple " without having lawful authority thereto

MARRIAGE CUSTOMS IN NEW SWEDEN. 



June 4-^, 1678,31 New Castle. — Mr. Walter Wharton, a 
Justice of the Peace, was piesented "for marrving himselfe 
or bein^' mai ried directly contrary to the Knovvne Layves of 
En<j;land & alsoe contrary to the Lavyes and custonies of this 
place and Province."' 

June 30, 1679, Whoorekill. — Complaint vyas made to (jov. 
Andros regardin<^ the coiuluct of Capt. John Aure\ , a local 
Magistrate, piesident of the Court, and this pathetic incident 
was related, disproying the sarcastic incredidity of Rosalind : 

" HeeTooke ypon himselfe to Marry the vviddow Clament to 
one Bryant Rowles, without publiquecation nothwithstanding 
she was out aske at Least a Alonth to another man, namly 
Edvvartl Cocke ; The which when the said Cocke hard that she 
was marryed to another man said that it woukl be his death 
And presently went home fell sick and in forty eight hours 
dyed ; he left it on his death that her marrying was the cause 
of his dyeing." 

Furthermore, it was alleged of Capt. Auiey : 

" Ilee took upon him to grant a Licence to ALirry Daniel 
Browne to Sussan Garland widdow, without any publiqueation, 
which ALarrige was eflected, notwithstanding it is Generally 
knowne or at Least the said Daniel confesses that he knows no 
other but that he haue a wile living in England. "■ 

The following simply-worded entry in the record of Holy 
Trinity (Old Swedes) Church, Wilmington, Del., by the re- 
tiring pastor, Ericus Biorck, in 1713, gives a picture of a mar- 
riage in those early times, which was doubtless a type of sim- 
ilar occasions in the legion formerly known as '* New 
Sweden," and a suggestion, as yvell, of the changing customs: 

•'The fouith Sunday after Easter the 3d of May, as with the 
church, Christ's prepared spiiitual bride, so did Magister Hes- 
sellius enter matrimony with Jonas V'/aliaven's daughter Vir- 
gin Sarah W^ilraven, which alter three times publishing took 
place in Christina church, the above named vSunday when I 
preached the marriage sermon over them from John 3rd Chap., 
29th verse: lie that iiath the Bride, is the Bridegroom, etc., 
and Mr. Sauilall, from Wicacoe, performed all the rest with

the speech to the bride at the house and the marriage cere- 
mony, etc., whicli I would not do on account of my love for 
and adherence to the customs of my Fatherland and its old cus- 
toms which I see are being done away with, such as crowning 
the bride, etc., through the introduction of tliese English cus- 
toms.'" 

A lew weeks later (May 30), at a meeting of the same con- 
gregation it was enjoined upon them, as to 

" Regulating espousals and marriages that they are not al- 
lowable according to church law before mature age, and not 
without consent of parents, and must be without compulsion 
or secrecy, and not before being well instructed in Christian 
doctrines."" 

By the middle of the century, as the country became more 
generally settled b}- people of English descent, there was 
much falling away from the quaint Swedish customs, espec- 
ially among the young people, as will be noted hereafter. 

Ill, Marriage Rites in England. 

Sundry provisions in the Anglo-Saxon statutes, frequent al- 
lusions in early English literature, and passages in the prayer 
book, appear to indicate that the earliest marriages in England 
were by capture, consented to or condoned by the bride ; or 
more generally by purchase, sanctioned by the village or 
gens, the bride's father selling or giving the bride, -^ and perhaps 
in later times performing some sort of ceremony on the occa- 
sion.-* In the language of the old prayer book of the time of 
Edward VI. : 

1 Records of Holy Trinity Church, 1890, 153. 2 ibid., 178, 

3 In "The History of Eng-lish Law before the time of Edward I,,"' by Sir Fred- 
erick Pollock and Frederick William Maitland, Cambridge. 1899. II.. 365, a some- 
what different view is taken : " When light begins to fall upon Ihe Anglo-Saxon 
betrothal, it is not a cash transaction by which the bride's kinsmen receive a 
price in return for rights over their kinswoman; rather ve must say that the 
bridegroom covenants with them that he will make a settlement upon his future 
wife. He declares, and he gives security for. the morning-gift which she shall 
receive if she 'chooses his will' and the dower that she shall enjoy if she outlives 
him." This practice, however, indicates an earlier custom of simple bride- 
purcha.se, as stated above in the text. 

4 It is not unlikely that this practice in a public place is the real origin of the 
tradition attaching to the singular group or circle of stones called "The Wed- 
ding,'' described in Camden's Britannia. London 169.T col. Si.

theme ever-old, aiul e\ei-nevv — published in London, in 1604 
(reprinted in 1S-14), entitled "A Piece of Friar Bacons

Dr. Lushington, in the House of Commons, March 17, 
183=;, thus explained the history and principles of the law of 
England in regard to marriage: " By the ancient law of this 
country as to mairiagcs, tiie marriage was good, if celebrated 
in the presence of two witnesses, though without the interfer- 
ence of a priest. But then came the decision of the Council of 
Trent, rendering the solemnization by a priest necessary. At 
the Reformation we refused to accept the provision of the 
Council of Trent ; antl, in consecjuence, the question was re- 
iluced to this state — that a marriage by civil contract was valid ; 
but, there was tiiis extraordinary anomaly in the law, that the 
practice of some of our Civil Courts recjuired, in certain in- 
stances, and for some purposes, that the marriage shoidd be 
celebrated in a particular form. It turned out that a marriage 
by civil contract was valid for some purposes, wdiile for others

XNXVl PUBLISHING OF THE BANNS. 

— such as the descent of real property to the heirs of the mar- 
riage — it was invalid. Thus, a man in the presence of wit- 
nesses, accepting a woman for his wife, per verba presenti, 
tlie marriage was valid for some purposes ; but for others, to 
make it valid, it was necessary that it should be celebrated 
in facie ccclesiic. This was the state of the law until the 
passage of the marriage act in 1754-" 

In the prayer book of Edward VI. (1553), it is ordered: 
" First the banns must be asked three several Sundays or 
holy days, in the service time, the people being present, after 
the accustomed Diannery 

The old ballad of Robin Hood and Allen a Dale refers to 
the same ancient custom : 

That shall not be. the bishop he said, 

For thy word shall not stand; 
They shall be three times askt in the church. 

As the law is of our land. 

The rule was that the banns, or intention of marriage, 
should be published, or " called out," in facie ecclcsiir, or in 
front of, or before, the church ; in other words, in the most 
public place in the village, to ascertain if the proposed mar- 
riage met with the approval of the people — apparently a sur- 
vival of an earlier custom, when the consent of the bride's gens 
was requisite, to permit of her surrender to another gens or 
tribe. Tlie rule was still further modified in time, by having 
the banns "'called out" from the pulpit, before the congrega- 
tion, and, as education became more general, by simply post- 
ing the notices of intended marriage on, or at, the church door, 
which might be construed as a compliance with the ancient 
custom of publishing the banns in facie ecclcsiic. Various 
ceremonies " at the church door," as of espousals,' dowry and 
the like, have been regarded as relics of a pagan sacrificial cere- 
mony ; and the marriage at the altar, within the church, is 
thought to be a trace of a primitive sacrifice at the domestic 
altar. Certain it is, that the church was many centuries in se- 
curing an influential part in the celebration of marriages in

EARLY WEDDINGS IX KNGI.AND. WWII 

England. 1 One of the earliest descriptions of a church wed- 
ding in Enghmd is tliis, from Chaucer:

If I yow tolde of every scrit and bond. 

By which that sche was feolTed in his lond;

And made al secur .Mioui.'-h with holinesse. 

Tlius ben they wedded with solempnite.- 

Another account of a wedding that actually took place sixty 
or seventy years later than the date of the Canterlniry Tales, is 
described with an interesting minuteness in depositions made 
July 6, 1472, in which it is related that in 1451 or 1452, Sir 
VN'illiam Plumpton and Joan VV^intringhani were p!i\ately 
married one nKjrning before sunrise, in the parish chtirch at 
Knaresburgh, by John Brown, perpetual vicar of that parish. 

"Verv early in the morning of the .SLud Friday came the said 
Sir William and Joan to the (:)arish church of Knaresburgh, 

and, they standing at the door of the chancel of the said 

chui'ch within the said church, the aforesaid John Brown came 
from the high altar in his vestments and solempnized marriage 
between them in tiie presence of the deponent, the said Sir 
William taking the said Joan with his right hand and repeat- 
ing after the vicar. Here I take the JJieiniftt to my ivei-

1 "In the seventh century in England the church was making; her voice heard 
about marriage." "By the middle of the twelfth century ... it was law in 
Knj-'land that marriaye appertained to the spiritual forum." "In 12(10 Archbisliop 
Hubert Walter . . . published in a council at Lambeth a constitution which 
declared that no marriage was to 1)6 celebrated until after a triple publication of 
the church's ban." "At the Lateran Council of 1215 Innocent III. extended over 
the whole of Western Christendom the custom that had hitherto obtained in 
some countries, of ' publishing the banns of marriatre.'" -Ilislory of (lie KikjU^Ji

to dede 7is depat't^ and tJicrcto I pligJii the t>/y iroui/i^ and 
tlie said Joan making like response incessantly to the said Sir 
William — that the said vicar, having concluded the ceremony 
in the usual form, said the mass of the Holy Trinity in a low 
voice in the hearing of the deponent." 

A vivid touch of realism is imparted to the narrative by 
the additional information that "• Sir William was clad in a 
garment of green checkery, and Joan in one of a red colour," 
she also having on "a grey hood."^ 

Although the church through hundreds of years was contin- 
ually seeking to gain entire control of the marriage ceremony, 
nevertheless marriage was still regarded as primarily a civil 
contract, until tiie passage of the Marriage Act of 26 Geo. 11., 
and the ecclesiastical ceremony was largely subsidiary to the 
civil contract or espousals, which oiten preceded theactu:il mar- 
riage by a considerable period. A pre contract of this kind 
was, till 33 Hen. VIII., and- again after 3 and 3 Edw. VI., 
considered an impediment to marriage with any other person. 

In the early Chancery proceedings, formerl}' in the Tower 
of London, there are numerous bills of complaint grounded on 
alleged contracts of marriage, some of which date back as far as 
1453. In these proceedings, however, the plaintiffs seek only 
to recover the actual losses and disbursements, without making 
any claim for blighted affections. 

Maister Walter Leinster, Doctour of Phisik, complains of 
Maister Richard Narborough, Doctor of Law Sivill, for that 
he in the moneth of May in the ix. yere of the reigne of the 
Kyng oure soveraigne Lord (Edward IV.) afKanced one Lucy 
Brampston, the daughter-in-lawe of the said plaintifl', to have 
her to wile, and immediately thereafter informed her that he 
would " depart over the see unto Padowe, there to applye his 
stodye for the space of ij yeres," at the end of which time he 
promised to return to England and to *•' espouse the said Lucy 
according to the law of Holy Churche," at the same time es- 
pecially desiring the plaintiff" to maintain the said Lucy and a

either to marry Lucy, or to reimburse the plaintiB", '' to the 
greate perell and jopardy of soule of the same Maister

The feudal laws, which gave the lord the control of tiie 
mariiage of his ward, weie manifestly opposed to the church's 
claim over marriages. True, the law of Normandy was to 
the effect that " if a woman be in wardship, wlicn she shall 
be of an age to marry, she ought to marry by the consent and 
license of her lord, a/ni by the counsel and consent of her rela- 
tions and friends, according to what the nobleness of her line- 
age and the value of iier fief shall require." But within a short 
period after the Norman concjuest tne English lords asserted 
absolute control over their wards, male as well as female, an 
abuse so notorious that it called for restrictive enactments, as 
llenry I., cap. i, cited in Bracton ; Magna Ciiarta'- ; the Stat- 
ute of Merton, 20 Hen. III.; i VV'estminster, cap. 33; 3 
Westminster, cap. 35. This control of wards and their estates 
by the feudal lords continued fbi' centuries, despite adverse en- 
actments. A remarkable instance of this happened so lately 
as the time of Charles I., in the case of the earl, afterwaids first 
duke of Ormond. " A long suit had subsisted between the 
lady Preston, grand-daugliter and heiress at law of. Thomas 
earl of Ormond, and her cousin, the heir male of the family,

xl CONTROL OVER MAltRIAGE BV THE FEUDAL LORDS. 

for that part of the estate her grandfather had entailed to go 
with the title. At length the relations on hoth sides thought 
the best expedient to end this intricate dispute, vvas by uniting 
the young relations, who likewise had conceived a strong alTec- 
tion for each other ; yet, although the king approved highly 
thereof, did the earl of Warwick, who was grantee of the 
young lady's wartlsiiip, extort ten thousand pounds before he 
would consent to a marriage on every account so desirable."' 

The primary interest of the lords in asserting control over 
the marriage of their wards must have interfered not a little 
with the church's claims to a supremacy in all that pertained 
to the marriage ceremony. It was evidently to the advan- 
tage of tlie feudal lords likewise to attach great importance to 
the idea that marriage was a civil contract. Not so much in 
their interest was the underlying principle, recognized in Eng- 
land from the earliest times, that consent by and between the 
parties was of the very essence of a valid marriage.^ This, 
again, was a recognition of the idea that marriage was a civil 
contract, Ijetween the two parties most interested, which not 
even the church could lawfully abrogate.-^ Herein was the 
basis of what has always been known as the English '• common 
law mairiage." ''If a man and woman agreed forthwith (per 
verba de prccsciiii) to take each other as husband and wife, it 
was a good marriage by the common law.^ " In general,

3 It was held by the schoolmen to whom Henry VIII. referred the question, in 
1530: "A Marriage is compleated by the Marriage Contract, though it be never 
Consummated." "Since Marriage was a Sacrament of the Church, its Essence 
could only consist in the Contract; .... so Marriage is compleat, though its 
effect never follow." The canonists did not agree to this, regarding the consum- 
mation as essential.— fiMr/ffJ'A- Hixtury of the RefurnuUionof the Church of Kng-

common reputation, and cohabitation as man and wife, or the 
acknovvledi^ment of the parties, may be admitted as evidence 
of marriage in the temporal courts."' " This Marriage is not 
a meer NuUity, because bv the Law of Nature the Contract is 
l:)inding; and though the positive Law of ALui ordains Mar- 
riage to be made by a Priest, yet tiiat Law only makes this 
Marriage irregular ^ lui't not void^ unless the positive Law of 
Man had expressly ordained it to be void."- 

The authority of the church in the celebration of marriages 
was first generally recognized in the time of Innocent II L'^ The 
canon law was introduced in Eiii^Iand in the reign of Henry 
I., and was graduallv extended in its power and scope as the 
influence of the cliurch became more firmly established. The 
canons of the Chinch of England threw many safeguards 
about the ordinance, prohibiting marriages without pnblisliing 
the banns, or without a license, under heavy penalties.^ The 
privilege of granting licenses dispensing with the pid)lishing 
of the banns for three Sundays, and other requisites of the 
canon law, was highly prized by the church, and especially by 
the Pope and his prelates. One of the first acts of Henry VIIL 
and his Parliament, after his breaking away from Rome, was 
to deprive the Pope of any power in relation to marriages in 
England,^ by the enactment of a statute (25 Hen. VIIL, A. D.

were much broader. The English Parliament in the sixteenth century objected 
particularly to these two provisions of the canon law: "All manner of Causes 
whatsoev'er they be. .Spiritual or Temporal, ought to be determined and judged 
by the Clergy," " Whosoever teacheth or thinketh of the Sacraments otherwise

formed a lucrative source of wealth to the church. The fee for a marriage license, 
at first 4s., by the middle of the eighteenth century was about £l. 5s., and of 
course more could be exacted, according to the urgency of the prospective bride- 
groom. The cupidity of the clergy led to many abuses and scandals, John Eve- 
lyn notes in his diary: " [169')J 14th [JulyJ No sermon at church; but after pray- 
ers, the names of the parishioners were read, in order to gather the tax of 4s. for 
marriages, burials. &c. a very imprudent tax. especially this reading the names, 
so that most went out of the church." The clergy found it profitable often to 
ignore the law requiring the publication of banns or a license, and permitted mar- 
riages to be performed in their churches or chapels without either, by strolling 
ministers, having no benefices or settled habitations; and marriages were also 
celebrated by parsons in prison, without licenses. Those irregular practices 
were prohibited under severe penalties in 1688 by act of 1 W. & M., cap. 3.5; in 
1696, by act of 7 and 8 William III., cap. '6'>; in 1711 by act of 10 Anne. cap. 10, sec. 
176; and in 1753 by act of 26 Geo. II.. cap. 33. See .Statutes at Large III.. 358. 034; 
IV., 563; VII. .5 '5. An interesting description of the manner in which the law 
was very generally disregarded by the English clergy, from the highest, to the low- 
est, is given in a little pamphlet printed in 1691, and reprinted in the Harleian 
Miscellany, London, 1810, IX., 500-.507.

xliv LEGITIMIZATIOX OF ISSUE OF CERTAIX MARRIAGES. 

subjects demanded the legitimization of the issue of marriages 
made despite previous contracts, and accordingly a new stat- 
ute (32 Hen. VIII., A. D., 1540, cap. 3S) was enacted, " For 
Marriages to stand notwithstanding Precontracts," as follows : 

Whereas heretofore ttie usurped Power of the Bishop of Rome hath always 
entangled and troubled the meer Jurisdiction and regal Power of this Realm of 
England, and also anquieted much the Subjects of the same, by his usurped 
Power in them, as by making that unlawful which by God's Word is lawful, both 
in Marriages and in other Things, as hereafter shall appear more at length, and 
till now of late in our Sovereign Lord's Time, which is otherwise by Learning 
taught than his Predecessors in Times past of long Time have been, hath so con- 
tinued the same, whereof yet some Sparks be left, which hereafter might kindle 
a great Fire, and so remaining, his Power not to seem utterly extinct: 

II. Therefore it is thought most convenient to the King's Highness, his Lords 
Spiritual and Temporal, with the Commons of this Realm, assembled in this pres- 
ent Parliament, That two Things specially for this Time be with Diligence pro- 
vided for, whereby many nconveniences have ensued, and many more mought 
ensue and follow: (2) as where heretofore divers and many Persons, after long 
continuance together in Matrimony, without any Allegation of either of the 
Parties, or any other at their Marriage, why the same Matrimony should not be 
good, just and lawful, and after the same Matrimony solemnized and consummate 
by carnal Knowledge, and also sometime Fruit of Children ensued of the same 
Marriage, have nevertheless, by an unjust law of the Bishop of Rome, which Is, 
That upon Pretence of a former Contract made, and not consummate by carnal 
Copulation (for Proof whereof two Witnesses by that Law were only required) 
been divorced and separated, contrary to God's Law. and so the true Matrimony, 
both solemnized in the face of the Church and consummate with bodily Knowl- 
edge, and confirmed also with the Fruit of Children had between them, clearly 
frustrate and dissolved; (3) Further also, by reason of other Prohibitions than 
God's Law admitteth. for their Lucre by the Court invented, the Dispensations 
whereof they always reserved to themselves, as in Kindred or AtBnity between 
Cousin-Germanes. and so to third and fourth Decree, carnal Knowledge of any 
of the same Kin. or Affinity before such outward Degrees, which else were lawful, 
and be not prohibited by God's Law; (t) and all because they would get the Money 
by it. and keep a Reputation to their usurped Jurisdiction, whereby not only 
much Discord between lawful married Persons hath (contrary to Gods Ordinance) 
arisen, much Debate and Suit at Law. with Wrongful Vexations, and great Dam- 
age of the innocent Party hath been procured, and many just Marriages brought 
in doubt and Danger of undoing, and also many Times undone, and lawful heirs 
disinherited, whereof there had never else, but for his vain-glorious Usurpation, 
been moved by such Question, since Freedom in them was given us by God's 
Law, which ought to be most sure and certain ; (o) but notwithstanding, Marriages 
have been brought into such an Incertainty thereby, that no Marriage could be so 
surely knit and bounden, but it should lie in either of the Parties Power and Ar- 
biter, casting away the fear of God, by Means and Compasses to prove a Pre con- 
tract, a Kindred and Alliance, or a Carnal Knowledge, to defeat the same, and so 
under the Pretence of these Allegations afore rehearsed, to live all the Days of 
their Lives in detestable Adultery, to the utter Destruction of their own Souls, 
and the Provocation of the terrible wrath of God upon the Places where such 
Abominations were used and suffered; (6) Be it therefore enacted by the King 
our Sovereign Lord, the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and the Commons, in this 

in 1.541, shortly after the event. See ••Original Letters relative to the English 
Reformation," etc., 1.537-1558, Parker Society Publications. Cambridge, 1846, -301.

vorced, or whose marriage should have been annulled ; nor 
to any person who had man led within the age of consent. ^ , 

One of the earliest acts of the Commonwealth Parliament 
was to deal a blow at the supremacy of the church, in its most 
intimate relations with the people, by providing that marriages 
should be celebrated o??/y by a justice of the peace. The ex- 
cellent existing provisions of the canons and of the statutes for 
the publication of banns were preserved, and a careful system 
was prescribed for keeping a register of births, marriages and 
burials. 2 This was the protest of England's Puritans and other 
dissenters against the Roman dogma that marriage was a sac- 
rament, that could be celebrated only under the sanction of the 
church. Milton and other leaders in the Commonwealth in- 
sisted that it was a civil contract, and this legislation was the 
outcome. 

The act (passed August 24, 1653) provides: 

Be it Enacted by the authority of tliis present Parliament. That whosoever 
shall asree to be married within the Commonwealth of England, after the Nine 
and twentieth day of September, in the year One thousand six hundred fifty 
three, shall (one and twenty days at least before such intended Marriage) deliver in 
writing, or cause tp be .so delivered unto the Register (hereafter appointed by this 
Act) for the respective Parish where e,ach party to be married liveth, the names 
surnames, additions, and places of aboad of the parties so to be married, and of 
their Parents, Guardians or Overseers; All which the said Register shall publish 
or cause to be published, three several Lords-days then next following, at the 
close of the morning Exercise, in the publique Meeting-place commonly called 
the Church or Chappel; or (if the parties so to be married shall desire it) in the 
Market-place next to said Church or Chappel; on three Market-days in three sev- 
eral weeks next following, between the hours of eleven and two; which be- 
ing so performed, the Register shall (upon request of the parties concerned) 
make a true Certificate of the due performance thereof, without which Certifi- 
cate, the persons herein after authorized shall not proceed in such marriage: And 
if any Exception shall be made against the said intended Marriage, the Register 
shall also insert the same, with the name of the person making such Exception, 
and their place of aboad. in the said Certificate of Publication. 

And it is further Enacted, That all such persons so intending to be married, 
shall come before some Justice of Peace within and of the same County, City or 
Town Corporate where publication shall be made as aforesaid; and shall bring a 
Certificate of the said publication, and shall make sufficient proof of the consent 
of their Parents or Guardians, if either of the said parties shall be under the age 
of One and twenty years: And the said Justice shall examine by witnesses upon 
Oath, or otherways (as he shall see cause) concerning the truth of the Certificate, 
and due performance of all the premises; and also of any exception made or aris- 
ing; And (if there appear no reasonable cause to the contrary) the Mai riage shall 
proceed in this manner:

2 No registration of this kind was required by the canon law. and no such sys- 
tem was known before the Reformation. 



THE COMMONVVEALTir's MARRIAGP: LAW. xlvii 

The Man to be married, taking the Woman to be married l)y tlie liaiid, shall 
plainly and distinctly pronounee these words: 

I A. H. do here in the presence of God the searcher of all hearts, take thee U. D. 
for my wedded Wife, and do also in the presence of God. and before these wit- 
nesses, promise to be imto thee a loving and faithful Husband. 

And then the Woman, tak-ing the Man by the ha,nd, shall plainly and distinctly 
pronounce these words: 

I C. D. do here in the presence of God. the searcher of all hearls. take thee A. 
B. for my wedded Husband, and do also in the presence of God. and before these 
witnesses, promise to be unto thee a loving, faithful and obedient Wife.' 

And it is further Enacted, That the Man and Woman having made sut'licient 
proof of the consent of their Parents or (iuardians as aforesaid, and expressed 
their consent unto Marriage, in the manner and by the words aforesaid, before 
such Justice of Peace in the presence of two or more credible Witnesses: the said 
Justice of Peace may and shall declare the said mifn and woman to be from 
thenceforth Husband and Wife; and from and after such consent so expressed, 
and such declaration made, the same, (as to the form of Marriage) shall be good 
and effectual in Law: And no other Marriage whatsoever within the Common- 
wealth of England, after the 'iiHh of September, in the yea,r One thousand six- 
hundred flfty three, shall be held or aceompted a Marriage according to the Eaws 
of England: But the Justice of Peace (before whom a Marriage is solemnized) in 
case of dumb persons, may dispense with pronouncing the words aforesaid: and 

with joining hands in case of persons that have not hands And the 

said Justice of Peace (if it be desired) shall give unto the parties so married a. 
Certificate in Parchment under his hand and seal, of such marriage, and of the 
day of the solemnization thereof, and of two or more cf the witnesses then pres- 
ent; and the Justices Clerk for this Certificate may receive Twelve pence and no 
more; And if such Certificate shall be produced to the Clerk of the Peace for that 
(bounty, and request made to him to make an Entry thereof, then the said Clerk 
of the Peace is hereby required to enter the same in a Book of Parchment to be 
provided for that purpose, and kept amongst the Records of the said Sessions, 
and to restore the said Certificate: for whicli Entry, the Clerk of the Peace may 
receive Four pence and no more. 

Other provisions raised the marriageable age of the man to 
consent unto marriage to sixteen years, and of the woman to 
fourteen years, instead of fourteen and twelve respectively." 
Another important clause vested the juristliction of all matters 
and controversies touching contracts and marriages in the c(^urt 
of general cjuarter sessions of the countv, instead of in the 
ecclesiastical courts.' 

Immediately after the Restoration, the authority of the 
ciergy in respect to marriages was revived (1660, 12 Chas. II., 
cap. 33), but "all marriages had or solemnized in any of his

Such was the law of England in 1664, when New Jersey 
was granted to Berkley and Carteret.^ 

IV. vScoTTiSH Marriages. 
The very scanty information we have regarding the earliest 
inhabitants of Scotland indicates that they preserved the tribal 
system of government some centuries later than the Teutonic 
peoples. We mav dismiss the statement of Ctesar that the 
Picts (supposed to be the earliest, and possibly non-Aryan, 
dwellers in North Britain) were polyandrous, as a conclusion 
derived from imperfect observation, or based on misinforma- 
tion. As to the later invaders — the Brythones, the Gaels, and 
finally the Dabiadic Scots, who swept over from Scotia (or 
the North of Ireland) about A. D. 500 into Alba or Albany, 

1 Lord Chancellor Hardwicke's act passed in 1753. 26 Geo. II.. Cap. 3.3. went 
further than previous statutes in checking common law marriages, by providing 
that '• all marriages solemnized after March 25th, I75i. in any other Place than a 
Church or Publick Chapel, unless by special license, or that shall be solemnized 
without Publication of Banns, or License of Marriage from a Person or Persons 
having Authority to grant the same first had and obtained, shall be null and void 
to all intents and purposes whatsoever/' See Statutes at Large, VII., 525. Lord 
John Russell's Dissenters' Marriage Act. passed Feb. 12th, 1836. authorized mar- 
riages of dissenters to be solemnized in their own chapels, registered for the pur- 
pose, after due notice to the registrar of the district. Dissenters desiring no re- 
ligious ceremony were enabled to enter into a civil contract before the superin- 
tendent registrar. See May's Const. Hist, of Enghind (N. Y.. 1835). II , 395. 



EARLIEST SCOTTISH MARRIAGE Cl'STOMS. xlix 

settling in Kintyre — we liave somewhat clearer knowledge. 
They retained their tribal customs well on to the twelfth or 
thirteenth century ; and indeed there are traces of the primi- 
tive rule of the tribe or clan to this day aniong the Celtic- and 
Gaelic-speaking villages and hamlets, stronger in their influ- 
ence over the minds and habits of the people than church or 
state, although they have professed Christianity for fifteen cen- 
turies or more, and have been " civilized " by rude acts of Par- 
liament prescribing the cut of the beartl and hair, the length of 
the coat, and even the family names thev must bear. Exogamy 
seems to liave been the prevalent custom, as among primitive 
tribes elsewhere. This, of course, indicates that marriage was 
a matter of bride-purchase, or of capture, with various modi- 
fications, according to circumstances.' Readily as the people 
adopted Christianity, as early perhaps as the third or fourth 
century, it was with reluctance that they acknowledged to any 
degree the control of the church over marriage. The Ger- 
manic and Scandinavian settlers in later times in the Lowlands 
of Scotland were at one with their predecessors in this matter, 
so that the primitive idea that marriage was a private contract, 
to be arianged between the two parties most interested, with 
possibly the sanction of the familv, the clan or the tribe, was

The earliest Irish laws recognized three legal relations between men and

solved except by the will of both parties or by legal process. These relations are 
not delined; but I believe that the first was the only one that had a religious sanc- 
tion, and that the second and third were merely civil relations, the third being 
distinctly stuprous and of itself scarcely conferring any right." "According to

most deeply seated among the inhabitants of this hmd, from the 
earliest times. - 

Immediately after the Reformation the Scottish Parliament 
began to exercise jurisdiction over the sulijects of marriage and 
divorce, passing acts in 155 1 '• Anent them that maries twa 
wives or hiisbandes;" and in 1567 "Anent tliein that commit- 
tis incest," and " Anent lawful mariage of the awin blude, in 
degries not forliidden by God bis Worde." The following is 

2 It is said that in ancient times the Scottish nobles had gradually acquired the 
juris primcB noctis, so low had the people been abased. But when Malcolm was 
declared King of Scotland at Scone. April 25th, 1057. having with the assistance of 
Macduff driven off the throne the spoiled Macbeth, " it is reported that his wife 
obtained from him a decree that the degrading custom should be altered, and the 
husband have liberty to redeem it by paying half a mark of silver, which payment 
is yet called mtrclwtamulerium."— Buchanan's Hist, of Scotlo.nd. London, 1722, I., 
•,'90. It should be noted, however, that Buchanan in this as in milny other rela- 
tions follows closely the imaginative and rather unreliable Hector Boethius 
(Boyce or Boece), whose Scotnrum HistoricB Librl was written about the middle of 
the fifteenth century; whereas such writers as Roger of Wendover. in his "Flow- 
ers of History,'" written prior to 1235 (Bohn's ed.. London. 1849. I., 331. 363-4), An- 
dro of Wyntoun. in his "Orygynale Cronykil of Scotland." written 1420-1424; and 
John of Ferdun, " Chronicle of the Scottish Nation," writing at the close of the 
fourteenth century, although all speaking warmly of St. Margaret, make no ref- 
erence to this remarkable incident. "The Chronicon Scotorum," written proba- 
bly before 1127, merely mentions her death, p. 301. In John Hill Burton's exhaus- 
tive History of Scotland, there is an account of Margaret, I.. 380 fol. ; and also in 
Andrew Lang's History of Scotland, I.. 90-98, but neither writer deems the story 
worth a reference, although it is just the kind that would appeal to the imagina- 
tion of Mr. Lang, with his fondness for and keen insight into ancient customs and 
folklore. It is probable that the legend arose from a misconception of the mean- 
ing of the term mercheta muUerum. which was really a tine paid by vassals or vil- 
lains to their chieftains or lords on the marriage of their daughters, a custom that 
seems more characteristic of the feudal system of Normandy, introduced a gener- 
ation later.— /!/««{/'.« //i.s'i. Sco^?«?id, I., 153; Villainifje in England, by M. Vinogra-

as mentioned in Thomas Blount's quaint little book: " Fragmenta Anti(iuitatis. 
Antient Tenures of Land. And Jocular Customs Of some Mannors." London. 
1679, 143. 153. 159. There were indications of the custom in Scotland in the seven- 
teenth century, as appears by a small pamphlet, " A Modern Account of Scotland. 
... by an English Gentleman," printed in 1670, and reprinted in the Harleian 
Miscellany, London, 1810, Vlt , 440, 442. But the writer seems to have fallen into 
low company, and to have been intensely pre.iudiced against everything Scottish, 
so that his statements carry little weight. In that powerful work. La Sorcirre: 
Ttie Witch of the. Miadle Ages, by J. Michelet, London. 1863. pp. 63-65. the writer 
gives a terrible picture of this shocking custom in France. He fancifully ascribes 
to it the development of the abused woman into the witch. The efforts of the 
church to assert the sanctity of marriage, under the claim that it was a sac- 
rament, found a powerful justitication in these revolting practices.

ITEM. Our Soveraine Lord, with advice & consent of my Lord Regent, and tlie 
three E.states of this present Parliament hes statute, and ordained, that the halie 
band of mariage made be all Estaites and sorts of men and women, to be als law- 
ful and als frie, as the Lawe of God hes permitted the samin, to be done, without 
exception of person or persones. And hes declared, and declares, that secunds in 
detrrees of consanKuinitie, and afBnitie, and all dearies outwith the samin, con- 
tained in the word of the Eternal God. and that are not repuy-nant to the said 
word, might, and may lawfully marry at all times sen the viii day of March, the 
zeir of God ane thousand five hundreth fiftie aueht zeiris, notwithstanding ony

and esteemed, in all times to cume, lauchfullie gottin, in lauchful Mariage. not- 
withstanding any Lawes. statutes, constitulionis. or Actis. maid or to be maid in 
the contrare! 

An act passed in 1573, " Ancnt them that diveitis fra- 
uthers, being joyned of het'oir, in lauchful mariage," enacts 
"■ that quhat-sumever person, or persons, joynetl in lauchful 
Matrimonie, husband or wife, divertis frauthers companie, 
without ane reasonable cause ;illedged, or reduced befoir a 
Judge, and remainis in their malicious obstinacie, be the 
space of four zeires, and in the meantime, refusis all privie 
admonitions," the wronged husband or wife could apply to the 
Lords of Session, and on due proof the offender should be 
" denounced rebel, and put to the hone;" whereupon the in- 
jured party could apply to the lawful archbishop or other spir- 
itual authority to direct privie admonitions to the ot^ender, and 
incase of disobedience by him or her, the oBender should be 
excommunicated, " quhilk anis being pronounced, the ma- 
licious and obstinate defection of the partie offender, to be ane 
sufficient cause of divorce, and the said parties offender to tyne 
and lose their'tocher, & donationes propter nuptias." 

The Kirk of Scotland was quite as ready as its predecessor 
to regulate marriage, condemning in 11^60 " secret joining in 
marriage ;" and in 1572 the commissioners appointed " to treat 
and conclude anent all matters tending to the ordering and es- 
tablishing of the Policie of the Kirk," concluded among other 
things: "that ther l)e readers specially appointed at every 
speciall kirk, where it may be done conveniently, who, being

found qualified by the Bishop or Superintendent, and entering 
by the lawful! order of the true Reformed Ki>k, shall minister 
the sacrament of baptisme, and solemnize marriage after law- 
ful and orderly proclamation of bannes, as eifiers." About 
1630 one of the criticisms upon the new Bishops was "that 
hereunto they grant liberty to solemnize marriage without ask- 
ing of banns."' 

The " Book of Geneva," based upon the order of service 
drafted in i5t4 by [ohn Knox and others, for the use of the 
English congregation at Frankfort, was published at Geneva 
in 15^6, and on Knox's return to Scotland in 1559. this book 
began to come into general use in that country, the General 
Assembly in 15^)2 enjoining its use in the " solemnisation of 
marriages," etc. With some slight modifications this " Book 
of Common Older," as it was called, embodied the law of the 
Scottish Church as to worship from 1564 till 1645, and was 
frequently recognized in acts of Parliament. It required the 
publication of the banns or contract fijr three sever;d days in 
the congregation, at the expiration of which the parties were 
to assemble at the beginning of the sermon, whereupon the 
Minister would read the Exhortation, and ask for objections, if 
any. If none, then he would say to the man : 

Forasmuch as no man speaketli against this thin},'. You N. shall protest here 
before God and His holy Conj^'regation. that you have taken, and are contented to 
have M. here present for your lawful Wife, promising to keep her. to love and in- 
treat her in all things, according to the duty of a faithful Husband, forsaking all 
other during her life; and briefly, to live in an holy conversation with her, keep- 
ing faith and truth in all points, according as the Word of God, and His holy Gos- 
pel doth command. 

Whereto the man was required to answer as follows : 

Even so I take her, before God, and in the presence of this His Congregation. 
The Minister was then to say to the woman : 

You M. shall protest here before the face of God, and in the presence of this 
His Congregation, that ye have taken, and are now contented to have N here 
present for your lawful Husband, promising to him subjection and obedience, for- 
saking all other during his life; and. finally, to live in an holy conversation with 
him, keeping faith and truth in all points, as God's Word doth prescribe. 

To which she was required to answ^er thus : 

Even so I take him, before God, and in the presence of this His Congregation.

scorrisir .makria(;k ritual. liii 

The Minister was then to reatl ftoni St. Mattlievv xi\., add- 
ing: " If ye loelieve assuretlly these words . . . tlieii may ye 
be certain, that God hath so i<nit you together in this lioly es- 
tate ot' Wedlock ;" following with a blessing.' 

In the Westminster Assembly of Divines, 1643-4, '" ^'^^' 
cussing the subject of marriage, it was objected that the fore- 
going ritual gave too much authority to the Minister, inasmuch 
as he uttered the promises of the contracting couple, who 
merely assented thereto ; objection was also made to his pro- 
nouncing the final blessing, instead of praying for them. Ac- 
cordingly, in the C irectory of Worship, adopted by that body in 
December, 1644, and accepted by the General Assembly of the 
Kirk of Scotland, and by the Scottish Parliament, in Febru- 
ary, 164^, it was expressly declared : 

Altliou!4-h M;irriaj,'t' l)f nil SaiTniiient, nor peculiar to the Church of God, but 
common to mankind, and of public interest in every commonwealth; yet, because 
such as marry are to marry in the Lord, and have special need of instruction, di- 
rection and exhortation from the Word of God at their entering into such a new 
condition, and of the blessing of God upon them therein, we judge it expedient 
that Marriage be solemnised by a lawful Minister of the Word, that he may ac- 
cordingly counsel them, and pray for a blessing upon them. 

The Directory provides for the customary publishing of the 
banns by the Minister three several Sabbath Days, in the Con- 
gregation, at the place or places of their most usual and con- 
stant abode, respectively, and finally prescribes this ritual : 

The Minister (if no impediment be acknowledged) shall cause first the Man to 
take the Woman by the right hand, saying these words: 

/ N. (In t"kf iJife N. to be my nuirrinl Wife, and do. in Vie prespiicp of God. and 
bffiire this Confjrfrjridon priiiii,i.-if and, covi'imnt to be a loving and faithful Husband 
unto thee, Until God shall separate as by death. 

Then the Woman shall take the Man l)y his right hand, and say these words: 
/ N do take thee N. to-be my married, Ilusl^and. and. I do in the presence of God. 
and l)efiire tli.is Con<j' eaation. prrnnise and coveinint to be a loving, fait?) ful, and obe-

Then, without any further ceremony. 2 the Minister shall, in the face of the Con- 
gregation, pronounce them to be Husband and Wife, according to God's ordi- 
nance."-

llV SCOTTISH LAW AGAINST CLANDESTINE MARRIAGES. 

The Parliament of Scotland in 1661 passed an "Act 
against clandestine and unlawfid marriages," as follows: 

OUR Sovereign Lord, and the Estates of this present Parliament, considering 
how necessar it is, that no Marriage be celebrat. but according to the laudable 
order and constitution of this Kirk; and by such persons, as are by the Authority 
of this Kirk warranted to celebrat the same. And notwithstanding hereof, sun- 
dry, either out of disaffection to the Religion presently professed in this King- 
dom, or being desirous to eschew the Censures of this Kirk, or to satisfle their 
promise of Marriage formerly made to others, or to decline the concurrence and 
consent of their Parents or others having interest, or out some other unlawful 
pretext, do procure themselves to be Married, and arc Married either in a Clan- 
destine way, contrary to the established order of the Kirk, or by Jesuits Priests. 
Deposed or Suspended Ministers, or any other not authorized by this Kirk. 
Therefore His Majesty, with advice of His said Estates. Statutes and Ordains, 
that whatsoever person or persons, shal hereafter Marry or procure themselves to 
be Married in a Clandestine and inorderly way or by Jesuits, Priests, or any other 
not authorized by this Kirk; that they shal be imprisoned for three moneths, & 
beside their said imprisonment shal pay. each Nobleman, one thousand pound 
Scots, each Barron and landed Gentleman, one thousand merks, each Gentleman 
and Burgess, five hundred pounds, each other person, one hundred merks: and 
they shal remain in prison, ay and while they make payment of these respective 
penalties above-mentioned, which are hereby ordained, to be applyed to pious 
uses, within the several Parodies where the said person dvrells. And that the 
Celebrator of such Marriages be banished the kingdom, never to return therein, 
under the pain of death. Likeas His Majesty, with advice foresaid, Prohibits 
and Discharges all men and women, having both their ordinar residence within 
this kingdom, to get Marriage to themselves with others within the Kingdom of 
England, or Ireland, without Proclamation of Bannes here in Scotland, and 
against the Order and Constitution of this Church, or Kingdom, under the pains 
following, viz. For each Nobleman so Married, one thousand pounds, for each 
landed Gentleman, one thousand merks; for each Burgess, Ave hundred pounds: 
and for each other Substantious person, five hundred merks; for an Yeoman, one 
hundred pounds; for each person of inferior quality, one hundred merks; the one 
half of the which penalties, shal belong to the Kings Majestic, the other to the 
Paroch, or Paroches where the Married Parties did reside; and Ordains His 
Majesties Advocat, and the Procurator for the Kirk, to pursue before the civil 
Judge, the Parties Contraveeners of this Act. or either part thereof, for payment 
of the penalties respective above-mentioned; And in the case of the poor con- 
dition of any man. married in manner of foresaid. Ordains him to be punished 
with Stocks and Irons: which pains corporal and pecunial, shall no ways be preju- 
dical to, orderogst from, the Order and Censures of the Kirks, to be inflicted 
against the Delinquents.! 

The real object of this act was to discredit the Presbyterian 
ministers who had signed the Solemn League and Covenant, 
and to require marriages to be celebrated only by ministers of 
the Established, or Episcopal, Kirk. This not proving effec- 
tive, another act was passed in June, 1672, providing that per-

statute."— /Oic?.. 2o8-271.

sons inairied by ministeis not ordained by the Bisliops shnidd 
" amit and lose any Rii^lit or Interest they mav have by that 
Marria^'e, jiire /imriti, vcl jure re/ictiC^ and \)\ and aftour 
the Pains and Penalties provided by the Act of I'arliament in 
anno 1661, against disorderly and clandestine Marriages." In 
1679, at the snggestion of Lauderdale, and with the approval 
of the Privy Council, the King's officers were instructed to 
prosecute vigorously all recalcitrants against the Estal)lished 
Kirk, including those "guilty of illegal marriages," and on 
August 3r, 16S1, an '• Act anent Religion and the Test" was 
passed, for the more vigorous enfot cement of the laws against 
conventicles, religious services in private houses, and " tlisor- 
derly baptisms and miarriages," meaning such as were not cele- 
brated by the Episcopallv-ordained clergy. 1 

Nevertheless, it will be observed that these several statutes, 
although prescribing the requirements of a lawful marriage, 
scarcely went so far as to declare irregular marriages null 
and void, and they went on verv much as before, being 
contracted privately by and between the parties, with- 
out any intervening priest, preacher or other officer, or by 
priests or preachers not of the Kirk of Scotland, or by civil 
magistrates, as had been the custom from time whereof the 
memory of man knew not to the contrary. For, by the com- 
mon law of Scotland nothing further was necessary to con- 
stitute a man and woman, husband and wife, than a mutual dec- 
laration of consent by the parties, before witnesses, to constitute, 
as at tliat date, the relation of husband and wife Or such 
declaration in writing, v\ ithorit witnesses, constituted a mar- 
riage, which was considered binding in all respects. - 

Or, as Lord Mackenzie has stated the law, more explicitly : 

'' In Scotland marriage is a civil contract, constituted by 

the mutual consent of the paities. The consent to marriage 

must be to a present act ; a promise or engagement to marry

at a future period, however formal, where no sexual inter- 
course has followed upon it, may be retracted, though the per- 
son retracting may be liable in damages for breach of promise. 
To the marriage of minors the consent of parents or guardians 
is not necessary. 

*•' The law of Scotland recognises four different modes by 
wiiich marriage may be constituted ; (ist) A public or regular 
marriage celebrated by a minister after proclamation of banns ; 
(2d) The deliberate exchange of matrimonial consent by words 
(ie pmsenli',^ whhout the nuptial benediction ox concubitus ; 
(3d) Promise of marriage followed by copula^ at least when 
declared a marriage by an action of declarator in the Court of 
Session; (4th) Cohabitation as man and wife, and being held 
and reputed as married persons. 

'• A public or regular marriage is one celebrated by a cler- 
gyman, in presence of two or more witnesses, after due procla- 
mation of banns according to the rules of the Church. All 
marriages entered into in any otiier form are clandestine or ir- 
regular ; but if the matrimonial consent has been seriously and 
deliberately interposed, they are ec|ually effectual with regular 
marriages, though they expose all concerned in them to certain 
statutory penalties, wliich, however, are seldom if ever en- 
forced in modern times. 

"As to irregular marriages, and the evidence by which they 
may be established, we cannot do better than lay before our 
readers a short exposition of the law in the words of Lord 
Moncreiff, whose autliority in consistorial questions is justly 
entitled to the greatest weight : ' Tiie governing rule of law is 
unquestionably that marriage is constituted by the consent of

without religious or other ceremony, if valid where celebrated is valid every- 
where, it has been held by the English courts that such marriages in Scotland, 
prior to 19 and 20 Vict. chap. 96. between persons domiciled in England, would be 
recognized in England, notwithstanding that they would have been invalid if cele- 
brated in England. Ilderton v. Ilderton, 2 H. Bl. 145: McAdam v. Walker

the parties alone ; and that upon legal and satisfactory evidence 
that such mutual consent has been seriously and deliberately 
interposed, the Court will declare such marriage, though it 
should be clear that no formal ceremony or celebration has 
taken place.' "^ 

And this was the idea of marriage brought to New Jersey 
bv the Scottish immigrants and refugees who fled or were 
banished from Scotland in 16S5 and thereafter, to escape the 
persecutions of the prevailing ecclesiastical power in that 
country.'-' 

V. New England Marriage Customs. 

New Jersey was settled so largely by people from New Eng- 
land that they exercised a marked influence in the new colony 
on public sentiment and fegislation, marriage regidations in- 
cluded. The Pilgrims and the Puritans who left England to 
found new homes in America were especially determined to 
assert their independence of the authority of the church over 
their domestic aflairs — at least, when that authorit}' did not co-

Gretna Green (just over the Scottish border, and only nine miles from Car- 
lisle), as the scene of runaway marriafijes came into prominence in 1754, when 
Lord Hardwicke"s Marriage act discountenanced common law marriages in Eng- 
land. They were still valid in Scotland, but as marriajres by civil magistrates 
were also lawful many runaway couples from England preferred the apparently 
more regular form of*marriage by the blacksmith who was also a justice of the 
peace, and therefore authorized to celebrate marriages. The following is a copy 
of a certificate issued by one of these otHcialsat Gretna Green a century or more 
ago: "This is to sartfay all persons that may be consernid- that A. B from the

incide with their own views. As many of them had fled first 
to HoHand, they h.ad there found it very agreeable to their 
ideas that marriage was regarded as a civil contract, and not as 
a sacrament. They brought the same thought with them to 
America, where, moreover, they were confronted with novel 
conditions that would have made it difficult, if not impossible, 
to conform to the law and the ecclesiastical requirements of 
the mother country. Writing under date of 1621, Governor 
William Bradford, of the Plymouth Colony, says: 

May 12 [lt321J " was ye tlrst marriaj^'e in this place [Edward Winslow to Susan- 
nab White, widow of William White, who died Feb. 21, 1621] which, according to 
yc laudable Custome of yo Low-Cuntries in which they had lived, was thouf<ht 
most requisite to be performde by the magistrate, as being a civill thing, upon 
which many questions aboute inheritance doe depend, with other things most 
proper to their cognizans, and most consonante to ye Scripturs, Ruth 4, and no 
wher found in ye gospell to be layed on ye ministers as a part of their office. This 
decree of law about mariage was published by ye State of ye Low-Cuntries Ano 
1590. 'That those of any religion, after lawfuU and open publication, coming be- 
fore ye magistrate in ye Town or Stat-house, were to be orderly (by them) mar- 
led one to another.' Pelet's Hist., fol. 1029A And practiss hath continued among 
not only them but hath ben followed by all ye famous Churches of th Christ in 
these parts to this time An" 1C4B."2 

Winslow being in London in 1635, was brought before the 
Lords Commissioners of Plantations in America, and was 
asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury about the practice con- 
cerning marriage, in Plymouth. " He confessed that haveing 
been called to place of IMagistracie, he had himself maried 
some. Further he tould their Lordi' y^ mariage was a civille 
thinge, & he found no wher in y^' word of Gad y'' it was tyed 
to ministrie, again, they were necessitated so to doe, having 
for a long time togeather at first no minister; besides, it was no 
new thing, for he had been so maried him selfe in Holand, by 
y® magistrates in their Statt house. "•^ 

The General Court of Plymouth Colony enacted, November 
15, 1636, that " none be allowed to marry that are under the 
covert of parents but by their consent and approbation, but in

case consent cannot be liad then it shall l)e w^'' the consent of 
the Gove'', or some assistant to whom the persons are knovvne 
whose care it shall be to see the marriag be Htt before it be

the intended marriage " be three severall times pulilished be- 
fore solemnising of it," in meeting, or where there was no meet- 
ing place, then by "a writing thereof matle and set vpon the 
usiiall publike place for the space of hftcene days. Provided 
the writing be vnder some majestrats hand or by his order." ' 

In an act passed June 4, 1645, the (jeneral Court defined a 
lawful contract of marriage (preliminaiy to the marriage itself) 
to be *■' the mutuall consent of two parties w"^'' the consent of 
parents or guardians (if any there be to be had) and a solemme 
promise of marriage in due tyme to eich other l^efore two com- 
petent witnesses." - 

Other acts provided for the registration of marriages, etc., 
with the town clerk" — a provision continued i.n the laws of New 
Jersey to this day. 

The General Court of ^Massachusetts Bay passed an act, Sep- 
tember 9th, 1639, "for prevention of all unlawful marriages." 
which provided : 

Henceforth no persons shiill l.)e joined in marriiit^e. liefore tlie intention of the 
parties proceedinf; therein hath been three times published, at some time of 
publicly lecture or town meeting, in both the towns where the parties or either of 
them do ordinarily reside, or be set up in writint^'- upon some post of their meet- 
ing house door in public view, there to stand so as it may be easily read, by the 
space of fourteen days.-* 

As some of the clergymen retained tlieir old-world notions 
of their prerogative in the celebration of marriages, and occa- 
sionally exercised the same, the General Court enacted in 
1647: 

That no person whatsoever in this jurisdiction shall join any persons together 
in marriage, but the magistrate, or such other as the general court, or court of 
assistants, shall authorize in such place, where no magistrate is near. Nor shall 
any join themselves in marriage but before some magistrate or person author- 
ized as aforesaid. Nor shall any magistrate or other person authorized as afore- 
said, join any persons together in marriage, or suffer them to join together in

their presence, before the parties to be married have been published according to 
law.i 

The foregoing statute, it will be observed, virtually prohib- 
ited clergymen from celebrating marriages, and also prohib- 
ited common law marriages. The civil control over marriage 
was again asserted in May, 1656, when it was ordered by tlie 
General Court : 

That from henceforth any one of the three commissioners for ending small 
causes in the several towns where no magistrate dwells shall and hereby are au- 
thorized and empowered to solemnize marriage between parties legally published, 
provided two of the said commissioners be present.'-^ 

The first settlers of Connecticut closely followed the Massa- 
chusetts precedents regarding marriage as a civil ceremony, to 
be performed by a magistrate. The General Court of the 
Colony of Connecticut enacted, April loth, 1640: 

That whosoeuer intend to joyne themselues in Maridge Couenant shall cause 
that their purpose of Contracte to be published in some publike place & att some 
publike meeting in the seuerall Townes where such persons dwell, at the lest, 
eight dayes before they enter into such Contracte. whereby they ingadge them- 
selues ech to other; and that they shall forbeare to joyne in Maridge Couenant at 
lest eight dayes after the said Contracte. And also the Magestrate who solem-

The act passed in IMassachusetts Bay in 16-J.7 was adopted 

by the Connecticut Colony in 1675, with some slight clianges, 

as follows : 

No person whatsoever in this Jurisdiction, shall joyn any persons together in 
Marriage, but the Magistrates, or such other as the General Court or Court of 
Assistants shall Authorize in such places where no Magistrate is near, nor shall 
any Magistrate or other person as aforesaid, joyn any persons together in Mar-, 
riage before the laarties to be Married have been published according to law. 

One of the earliest laws of New Haven Colony was closely 

in line with those of her sister New England Colonies, being 

in these words : 

No persons shal be either contracted, or joyned in Marriage before the inten- 
tion of the parties proceeding therein, hath been three times published, at some 
time of publick Lecture, or Town meeting in the Town, where the parties, or 
either of them dwel. or do ordinarily reside: or be set up in writing, upon some 
post of their meeting house door, in publick view, there to stand so as it may be 
easily read by the space of fovrteen daies: and that no man unless he be a Magis-

trate in this Jurisdiction, or expreslyiiUowcd by the General Court shall Marry 
any persons, and that in a publick place, if they be able to ko forth, under the pen- 
alty of live pounds fine for every such miscarriage.' 

Thus the New Enghxnd settlers who began to pour into 
New Jersey in 1665 and 1666, came from communities that 
had become thoroughly imbued with the idea that marriage 
was a civil contract, sanctioned, it is true, as a Divine ordi- 
nance, but not a sacrament, and that, so far from a clergyman 
being required for the performance of the ceremon\ , that func- 
tion was or ought to be vested exclusively in the magistrates 
or other civil officers ~ 

VI. Friends' Marriage Customs. 

Still another potent influence in New Jersey legislation was 
that exercised by the Friends, who so largely settled West Jer- 
sey, under the auspices of William Penn and his associates, 
and who were so prominently concerned in the government 
and settlement of East Jersey. Their manner of life was a 
protest against the excesses which had become insufferably ob- 
noxious during the reigns of James I. and Charles I. During 
the consequent political and religious turmoil of the revolt 
against Charles I. many men sought to evolve new systems of 
religion, which were merely modifications of the old, and were 
clearly man-made. George Fox alone attempted to lead the 
wa}' liack to primitive forms and beliefs, seeking to guide men 
not by the declarations of councils, assemblies, convocations 
and other ecclesiastical bodies of men, but by the in-dwelling 
spirit of truth, which should lead all men aright, and make 
them all Friends. Like all other religious reformers, or lead- 
ers, he soon gave his attention to the subject of marriage, which 
lies at the foundation of society, and all social life. As early 
as 1653^ he began to advise thereon, and by 1659 '^'^ deliver- 
ances had assumed this tentative form : 

If any friends go tof^ether in the I'ouier of lli.e Lord, or find a necessity there- 
unto to joyn in marriage, after the thing hath been made known between them- 
selves, before anything be concluded, let it be declared to Friends who are able, in 
the Wisdom and Power of God to. see and feel into it; & if they see the thing in

the li^lit and power to istand, it may be declared to friends in the meetins' or Meet-

by the parties themselves, or some other friends as they are moved, both of the 
parties being then present, that it may be by friends felt and seen in the light, 
and enquirie may be made touching any other engagement, to stop scandals, and 
things kept sweet, so that you take time in it, and you may be clear, and feel it 
as it was in the beginning, that no hardness of heart get up; But if the parties 
who are first acquainted with such a marriage, or any friend or friends have any 
thing against it, and if any thing be resolved other wise, that then the matter be 
laid before friends the next General meeting that may be appointed, to consider 
of things relating to friends, and there to be seen into and ended; If in conven- 
ient time after the thing is declared nothing appear against it by the parties who 
are tirst acquainted with such a marriage, nor by any Friend or Friends; and 
after things are all sweet and clear, and Friends have unity with it, they may as 
they are moved, declare it in the end of the General Meeting to which the parties 
do belong, before the departure of Friends, or as they are moved, they may de- 
clare it in the mid-time of the Market, on the Marlcet-day in the next Market- 
town, to such parties outward dwelling as they are moved, or they may not as

cafe by Friends then present may be given of the Dai/, Month, and Year, that it 
may be recorded, and as they are moved, they may declare it to the Magistrate, 
an they will, or they may not; And that those things that cannot be owned by

that your Conversation may be ordered a right, that you may see the Salvation of 
God, and know the Marriage that is sanctified by the Word, that you may be the 
peculiar people, the holy Royal Seed and Generation; and that nothing be record- 
ed for Money in these things, but freely, a free people and in love serve one an-

This interesting document is fortified with numerous Scrip- 
ture texts, to show that marriages among the Jews were not 
celebrated by the priests, but merely by the vohmtary consent 
of the parties, declared in the presence of witnesses. 

The first formal endorsement of these recommendations con- 
cerning marriage, of which we have any record, was by a 
meeting of Friends of Kent, Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire,

England, tiiird month, 1659, wlio thus tersely voiced their tes- 
timony : 

Thiit all Ki'iends intending;- marriiiKt". or witnessin;^- a motion of the Lord unto 
that thiiitj'. (before they no outwardly toK-ether,) l]rinK it to the l)ody or that 
church to which they are joined; that all in the power of the Lord may feel, and 
in that particular nothinK be done hastily or rashly, but in the fear of the Lord; 
and in the presence of many witnesses they may be united, according to the ex- 
ample of the holy men of God in the Scriptures of truth recorded; so that no 
scandal or blemish may be laid upon the Truth, but all to the light may be 
brought, which maketli manifest deceit: and that a record in writing of the day. 
place, and year of such things be kept within that meeting, whereof one or both 
are members: under which the witnesses may set their names, or some of 
them.i 

This form of marriage was simply the common law mar- 
riage of England, constituted by tlie consent of the parties, and 
duly witnessed. The plan of liringing the matter before the 
Meeting was practically the same as the publishing of the 
banns. The Long Parliament in 1653 hatl legalized marriages 
before civil magistrates, instead of by a " hireling priest- 
hood ;" George Fox went a step finther in reverting to the 
earlier and simpler form of marriage without the intervention 
of other than the parties themselves, with certain ]5rudcnt reg- 
ulations to secure due delilieration, and proper publicity, in the 
celebration of the rite. 

So early as 1661 there was an adjudication as to the valid- 
ity of Friends' marriages, when the Court (Arthur, J.) told 
the jury that " There was a Marriage in Paradise, when Adam 
took Eve, and Eve took Adam ; and that it was the Consent of 
the Parties that made a Marriage. And as for the Qijakers, he 
did not know their Opinions, but he tlid not believe, they went 
together as Brute Beasts, as had been saiil of them, but as 
Christians; and therefore he did believe the Marriage was law- 
ful." " And the better to satisfy the Jury, he brought them a 

Case to this Purpose : A Man that was weak of Body, and 

kept his Bed, had a Desire in that Condition to Marry, and did 
declare before Witnesses, that he did take such a Woman to 
be h's Wife; and the W^oman declaretl, that she took that Man 
to be her Husband. This Marriage was afterwards called in

Qiiestlon ; and (as the Judge said) all the Bishops did at that 
time conclude it to be a lawful Marriage."' 

In 1666 George Fox attended a marriage of Friends at 
Oram, when, as he says, he was " moved to open to the Peo- 
ple the State of our Marriages, declaring; How the People of 
God took one another in the Assemblies of the Elders: and 
how that it was God that did Join Man and Woman together 
before the Fall. And though Men had taken upon them to 
Join in the Fall, yet in the Restoration it was God's foining, 
that was the right and honourable Marriage ; but never any 
Priest did Marry any, that we read of in the Scriptures, from 
Genesis to the Revelations. "- 

The following is one of the earliest (Quaker marriage cer- 
tificates extant, May 17, 1667: 

These are to certifle all whom the same may concern, that whereas the agree- 
ment of marriage betwixt William Dewsbury of Durker in the County of York & 
Alice Meades of the Borough of Warwick & in the County of Warwick single 
woman, hath been published in the respective churches amongst which they have 
had their conversations, according to the order of the Spirit of the Lord, for the 
satisfaction of the Children of Light, who rest satisfied & have unity with them 
in their proceedings & coming together— Know ye therefore, that upon the sev- 
enteenth day of the month called May in the year of our Lord one Thousand six 
hundred sixty & seven, they the said William & Alice did openly & solemnly as 
in the presence of the Lord & before his people give up themselves in the holy 
Covenant of God, & did take each other in marriaire to live together according to 
God's holy ordinance & appointment. Gen: ch. 3'd, Ver : 24th & Cli. 24th, Ver. I4th 
to the end of the chapter. 

"And that they were this day openly & solemnly married according to the order 
of the Church of Christ & the good example,s of God's peoples in times past men- 
tioned in the Holy Scriptures 1st Tim. Ch. 5th Ver. 14th, 1st Corinth: Ch. 7th, 
Ver. 2nd, Ruth Ch. 4th, Ver. 13th. Gen: Ch 24th Exod: Ch. 2d, Ver. 1st. 

And now we whose names are here underwritten being eye & ear witnesses of 
the Marriage aforesaid & having unitywith them in the light & Truth of God do 
hereby give in our testimonies for them & with them, to remain upon record unto 
future Posterities, as witnesses for God & his people against all the works of 
darkness & such as go together therein; out of which God hath called us to bear 
witness of his everlasting light & Truth upon the earth: in which stands the 
honourable marriage, whereunto we bear record for the full satisfaction of all 
people, that in any wise may be concerned therein 'i

These Meelini,'s takr Care in tlie ( ';is(> of Marriages, thai all Ihint^s he eh'ar; 
and that there may be nolhini,'' (U)ne in that Pi-oceilure, which al'terwarils may 
Ijrove to the Prejudice of Truth, or of the Parties concerned: which bein^ an out- 
ward Thing (that is acknowledi^ed in itself to be hiwful) of the trreatest Import- 
ance a Man or Woman can perform in tliis World; and from the sudden, unwary, 
or disorderly Procedure whereof, very yreat Snares and Reproaches may be cast 
both upon the Parties, and the Profession owned by them: therefore it doth very 
titly. amonjir other thinf»'s. when it occurs, come to be considered of by the People 
of God, when met, to take Care to preserve all Thint^s riyht and savoury in the 
Household of Faith. We do believe, our Adversaries. tha,t watch for Evil at,'ainst 
us, would be t^lad how promiscuously or disorderly we proceed in this weiH'hty 
Matter, that so they mi^^'ht the more boldly accuse us. as Overturners of all 
human and Christian Order: But God hath not left us without his Counsel and 
Wisdom in this Thin^;: nor will he. that any should recei\'e just Occasion asJiinst 
us his People: And therefore in this weighty Concern, we. who ca-n do nothinjj 
aKainst the Truth, but all for. and with re.uard to the Truth, luive divers Testi- 
monies for the Lord. And — 

First. That we cannot Marry witli tho.se that walk not in. and oliey not the 
Truth, as being of another Judgment, or Fellowship: or pretending lo it, walk 
not suitable and an.swerable thereto. 

Secondly, Nor can we go to the Hireling-Priests, to uphold their f;ilse and 
usurped Authority, who take upon them to marry People without any Comnuind. 
or Precedent for it from the Law of God. 

Lastly. Nor can we suffer any such kind of Marriage to pass among us, whioh 
either as to the Degree.s of Consanguinity, or otherwise, in itself is unlawful, or 
from which there may be any just Reflection cast upon our Way. 

In that we deny the Priests their Assumed Authority and Power to marry, it is 
that which in no wi.se we can recede from, ncu' can we own any in the doing of it: 
it being Part of our Testimony against the Usurpati(.)ns of that Generation, who 
never yet, that I ever heard of. could produce any Scripture-proof, or Example 
for it. — - And seeing none can pretend ('onscience in the Matter (for they them- 
selves confess that it is no Part of the Elssence of Marriage) if any pretending to 
be among us. shotdd. through Fear. Interest, or Prejudice to the Truth, come un- 
der, and bow to. that Image, have we not Reason to dc.'uy such slavish and ignoble 
Spirits, as mind not Truth and its Testimony ': 

Lastly. Seeing if any walking with us. or going under the same Name, should 
hastily or disorderly go together, either being within the Degrees of Consa-nguin- 
ity, which the Law of God forbids, or that either Pai-ty should have been former- 
ly under any Tie or Obligation to others, (ji- a,ny other vast Disproportion, which 
might bring a just Reflection upon us from our Opposers: can any blame us for 
taking Care to prevent these Evils, by appointing that such as so design, make 
known their Intentions to these Cfiurches or Assemblies, where they are most 
known, that if any know just Cause of Hindrance, it may be mentioned, and a 
timous Lett put to the Hurt, either by stopping it, if they can be brought to con- 
descend: or by refusing to be Witnesses and Concurrers with them in it, if they 
will not? For we take not upon us to hinder an.v to marr.y, otherwise than by Ad- 
vice, or disconcerning ourselves: neither do we judge, that such as do marry con- 
trary to our Mind, that therefore their Marriage is null and void in itself, or may 
be dissolved afterwards; Nay. all our meddling is in a holy Care for the Truth. 
For if the Thing be right, all that we do. is lo be Witnesses; and if otherwise, 
that we may say for our Vindication to such as may upliraid us iherewith, that we 
advised otherwise, and did no ways cotu-ur in the Matter: tha,l so lliey may bear 
their own Burden, and the Truth a-nd People of God be cleared. i

Ixvi friends' marriage customs. 

A very clear and temperate account of the Friends' practice 
in this important matter is that given by William Penn : 

Their Way of Marriage is peculiar to tliem; and shews a distinguishing Carev 
above other Societies, professing Cliristianity. They say that Marriage is an 
Ordinance of God, and that God only can rightly join Man and Woman in Mar- 
riage. Therefore they use neither Priest nor Magistrate: but the Man and 
Woman concerned take each other as Husband and Wife, in the Pre.sence of 
divers credible Witnesses, promising to each other, with God's Assistance, to be 
loving and faithful in that relation, till Death shall separate them. But antece- 
dent to this, they first present themselves to the Monthly Meeting for the Affairs 
of the Church where they reside; there declaring their Intentions, to take one 
another as Husband and Wife, if the said Meeting have nothing material to ob- 
ject against it. They are constantly asked the necessary Questions, as in case of 
Parents or Guardians, if they have acquainted them with their Intention, and 
have their Consent, etc. The Method of the Meeting is, to take a Minute thereof, 
and to appoint proper Persons to enquire of their Conversation and Clearness 
from all others, and whether they have discharged their Duty to their Parents or 
Guardians; and to make Report thereof to the next Monthly Meeting, where the 
same Parties are desired to give their attendance. In case it appears they have 
proceeded orderly, the Meeting passes their Proposal, and so records it in their 
Meeting-Book. And in case the Woman be a Widow, and hath Children, due Care 
is there taken, that Provision also be made by her for the Orphans, before the 
Meeting pass the Proposals of Marriage: Advising the Parties concerned, to ap- 
point a convenient Time and Place, and to give fitting Notice to their Relations, 
and such Friends and Neighbours, as they desire should be the Witnesses of their 
Marriage: Where they take one another by the Hand, and by Name promise re- 
ciprocally, Love and Fidelity, after the Manner before expressed. Of all which 
Proceedings, a Narrative, in Way of Certificate, is made, to which the said Par- 
ties first set their Hands, thereby confirming it as their Act and Deed; and then 
divers Relations, Spectators and Auditors set their Names as Witnesses, of what 
they said and signed. And this Certificate is afterwards registred in the Record 
belonging to the Meeting where the Marriage is solemnized. Which regular 
Method has been, as it deserves, adjudged in Courts of Law. a good Marriage; 
where it has been by cross and ill People disputed, and contested, for want of the 
accustomed Formalities of Priest and Ring, &c. Ceremonies they have refused: 
Not out of Humour, but Conscience reasonably grounded; inasmuch as no Scrip- 
ture-Example tells us, that the Priest had any other Part of old Time, than that 
of a Witness among the rest, before whom the Jews used to take one another: 
And therefore this People look upon it, as an Imposition to advance the Power 
and Profits of the Clergy: And for the Use of the Ring, it is enough to say, that it 
was an Heathenish and vain Custom, and never in Practice among the People of 
God, Jews or primitive Christians: The Words of the usual Form, as inUh my 
iJociy / f7*(Je wj07's7iip, &c., are hardly defensible. In short, they are more careful, 
exact and regular, than any Form now used; and it is free of the Inconven- 
iences, with which other Methods are attended: Their Care and Checks being so 
many, and such, as that no clandestine Marriages can be performed among 
them 1

Friends for New Jersey and Pennsylvania was held at Burling-

ton, New Jersey, in the house of Thomas Gaichier, 31st of 6th 
mo., 16S1, old style. In 16S3 it was by the Meeting advised, 
"■ that all young and unmarried people in membership with us, 
previously to their making any procedure in order to marriage, 
do .seriously and humbly wait upon the Lord for his counsel 
and direction in this important concern ; and when favored 
with satisfactory clearness therein, they should early acquaint 
their parents or guardians with their intentions, and wait for 
their consent ; thus preservation from the dangerous bias of 
forward, brittle, and uncertain aftections would be experienced, 
to the real benefit of the parties, and the comfort of their 
friends. And it is earnestly recommended to Friends, that 
they tenderly and carefully watch over the youth, and extend 
reasonable caution and admonition, as occasion may re- 
quire. "^ 

One of the earliest deliverances on the subject by the Year- 
ly Meeting was the following : 

" When they understand or hear of any y'^ Intends to offer 
their proposals of Marriage to y^ Monthly Meeting which 
seems manifest to them cannot pass there, that they then ad- 
vise (tho' not forbid) them to forbear troubling y" said meet- 
ing therewith till y'^' saiti preparative Meetings Objections be 
removed And that the Man at least before he propose his In- 
tended Marriage to y*^ Monthly meeting Do by himself or some 
friend at his request lay y^' matter before y'' said preparative 
Meeting he belongs to And if the Woman belong to another 
Meeting that she lay it after y'' same manner before y^ Women 
friends to which she belongs. And if the Man belong to an- 
other Monthly Meeting that then he produce from thence a 
Certificate of his clearness from all others & of his Conversa- 
tion to y'- Monthly Meeting where the Woman belongs before 
he have the said Meetings final approbation. 

" Inasmuch as neither Children nor Orphans ought to 
marry without Consent of parents or Guardians, therelbre they 
often advise that no man so much as propose his Intentions of 
Marriage to any young Woman before the Consent of such be 
first had and obtained.

" . . . . And that y" Care of Marriages in the above 
respects may be the particular Concern of some It's advised 
that y® Monthly Meeting do always appoint two friends to be 
at the said mirriages to take inspection thereof and that they 
be appointed as aforesaid at the same monthly nieeting where 
the Couples receive their final approbation ; and that one or 
both of the said two friends do acquaint y'^' next monthly Meet- 
ing after such Marriage is consummate whether it was carried 
on as above advised or not. And that the appointment of the 
said two friends as also their answer as above be entered upon 
record to prevent mistakes and shortness of memory."^ 

The Yearly Meeting for Pennsylvania and New fersey in 
1703 advised "that none making profession of Truth, and 
would be accounted of us, do take one another in Marriage, 
or join in Marriage any other way, than by the Consent and 
Approbation of the monthly Meeting belonging to the place 
where they live ; And if any should proceed, any other way, 
that they be dealt with according to Truth." - 

The same body advised in 1733 " tbat Friends being Jus- 
tices of the Peace do not by Pretext of their Office undertake 
to marry people by Virtue of Licenses obtained to that end, it 
being in the Sense of the Yearly Meeting inconsistent with our 
Principles, & not any part of their duty as magi.^trates so 
to do " 3 

The following is the form of a marriage certificate agreed 
upon by the same Yearly Meeting in 1719, and again approved 
in 1762 : 

Whereas A B of C. in the County of D in the Province of E & F G of H &c hav- 
ing declared their Intentions of Marriage with each other before several Mon: 
Meetings of the People called Quakers, at H aforesaid, according to the good 
Order amongst them, (where the Parties are under the Tuition of Parents, or 
Guardians, add) and having the Consent of Parents (or Guardians as the case is) 
concerned, their said Proposals of Marriage were allowed by the said Meet- 
ing. - - -

VII. Early New York and Pennsylvania Marriage 

Laws. 

I in mediately on the conquest of New York bv the Eng- 
li.sh, and while the Duke of York, under the grant of his 
brother, Charles II., held sway over New York, New Jersey 
and Pennsylvania, there was a general meeting held at Hemp- 
stead, Long Island, on March first, 1664, at which a code of 
laws, '' collated out of several laws in force in his Majesty's 
American Colonies, and Plantations, and digested into one vol- 
ume," was published, known as "■ the Duke of York's Laws." 
These laws were re enacted from time to time, with some mod- 
ifications, but remained substantially unchanged for twenty 
years or more. They went into effect immediately in New 
York, and were subsequently- extendetl to the shores of the 
Delaware. They were also in eflect in New Jersey, during 
the brief period that elapsed before the transfer of that territory 
to Sir George Carteret and Lord John Berkley, and again 
after the surrender by the Dutch in 1674, until the new grant 
Vjy the Duke of York and Charles II. to the Proprietors of 
New Jersey. The Long Island people who afterwards 
migrated to New Jersey found but little change in the mar- 
riage laws to which they had been accustomed umler the 
dominion of the Duke of York. 

The first act on the subject recognized the impracticability 
of attempting to follow the English ecclesiastical regulations, 

1 Ibid. This deliverance in 17(52 was " on Account of the frequent Transgres- 
sions of our discipline in respect to Marriages," and " the Increase of Marriages 
accomplished contrary to the good Order established in the Society."

and sanctioned marriages by a justice of the peace, but re- 
quired the publication of banns. The act reads thus : 

Whereas by the Law of England no Marriage is lawfully Consummated with- 
out a Minister whose office it ii^ to join the parties in Matrimony after the Banns 
thrice published in the Church or a Lycence Jirst had and obtamed from some 
person thereunto authorized, all which formality cannot be duly practiced in 
these parts. 

Yet to the end that a decent rule therein may be preserved It is Ordained that 
from henceforth the names and surnames of each Party who sue for Marriages 
shall be Publiquely read in their Parish Church or place of usuall Meeting, where 
they both then Inhabit three severall Lords days successively. 

And where no Church or Meeting place shall happen to bee. a publication in 
writing shall be first fourteen Days before Marriage upon three doors of each 
parish whereof the partyes Inhabit (yiz) one on the Constables the other two 
upon any two Doors of the Overseers of the Parrish Unless they produce a 
Lycence from the Governouri in both which Cases, and not otherwise, it shall be 
Lawful! for any Minister or for any Justice of the Peace2 to joyne the Parties in 
Marriage, Provided that the said Partyes do purge themselves by Oath before the 
Minister or Justice that they are not under the Bonds of Matrimony to any other 
Person Living, and if it shall be after proved, that either or both of the Parties are 
perjured, and thereby attained a Double Marriage, for the said Perjury the par- 
ty or parties offending shall bee boared through the tongue with a read hot Iron 
and moreover proceeded against as in Case of Adultery is provided; But if either 
Party be approved Innocent as to him or her Self and Ignorant of the others 
wicked fraud the innocent Person shall recover damage against the nocent; and 
be sett at Liberty as if no such Marriage had been made. 3 

In the Frame of Government or Charter of Liberties of the 
Province of Pennsylvania, dated April ii, 16S2, by William 
Penn, with alterations agreed upon in England, it was pro- 
vided : 

Nineteenth. That all marriages (not forbidden by the law of God, as to near- 
ness of blood and affinity by marriage) shall be encouraged; but the parents or 
guardians shall be first consulted, and the marriage shall be published before it 
be solemnized, and it shall be solemnized by taking one another as husband and 
wife, before credible witnesses, and a certificate of the whole, under the hands of 
parties and witnesses, shall be brought to the proper register of that county, and 
shall be registered in his office. ■* 

This was enacted ii1to law by the Pennsylvania Legislature, 

1 The justices of Newcastle on Delaware, on July 27th, 167S, asked "whether 
the commander hath power to grant licenses for marriages, as to several persons 
he hath done, whereby the common course of three proclamations in the church, 
or banns set up, is laid aside."— A'eiocasiZe Records, 311, cited in Hazard's Annals 
of Pennsylvania, 4.=)6. 

2Gov.Andros, of New York, having been asked by the Board of Trade and 
Plantations to report the number of marriages in that Province, wrote a reply, 
received April 18, 167S: •' Scarcity of Ministers and Law admitting marriages by 
Justices no acct cann be given of the number marryed."— iV. T. Col. Docs.,

on December 7i 16S3, the (Quaker practice being more clearly 
embodied in the statute : 

All murrhiKt-'s not forljitliU'ii l)y th<>' Uiw of God, ^^ll;llI he encouraged; liuL the 
parents and },'uardian.s shall be. If possible, ttr.st Consulted; and the parties clear-

sons where they have lived: And by their affixing of their intentions of Marriatie 
on the Court, or Meeting-house Ooor of the County where in they Dwell, one Month 
before the solemnizing thereof ; And their said marriage shall be solemnized by 
taking one another as husband and wife, befor Sufficient Witnesses; And a cer- 
tificate of the whole under the hands of parties and witnesses, (at least twelve.) 
shall be brought to the Register of the County, where they are Marryed, and be 
Registered in his office. 1 

A similar act was passed loth of 3d Month, 16S4, but with 
the modification that the certificate referred to might be pro- 
duced to " sucli Religious Society to which they relate; or to 
some one Justice of the peace of the County in which they 
Live."'- This was still further amended by an act passed in 
1693, which inserted the proviso : " that there be at least one 
Justice of the Peace of the County where such marriage shall 
be, at the Solemnization thereof."^ 

III. MARRIAGE IN NEW JERSEY. 

THE SOVEREIGN POWER IN THE COLONY. 

In tracing the laws and customs concerning marriage in 
New Jersey in the Colonial period we may tind it instructive 
to review briefly the origin of the sovereign power in the Col- 
ony, and the agencies through which it was exercised. 

By the patent of King Charles II. to his brother James, 
Duke of York, March 12, 1663-4, '^o'' ^'''^ ^'^^^^ territory ex- 
tending from St. Croix to tiie Delaware, there was not only 
conveyed the territory, but "■ full & absolute power & author- 
ity to correct punish pardon governe & rule all such the Sub- 
jects of vs our heires and Successors as shall from time to 
time adventure themselves into any of the parts or places 
aforesaid or that shall or doe at any time hereafter inhabit 
within the same according to such Lawes Orders Ordinances, 
directions & instruments as by our said dearest Brother or

October 28, 1701, and has remained unrepealed ever since. By an act approved 
June ~3, 188.5, licenses are required as a prere(iuisiie to marriages. .See Statutes

well in all causes and matters Capitall & Criminall as civill,

the Lawes & Statutes of this our Realme of England but as 
neare as may be agreeable thereunto ; and the same at all times 

1 Closely following,' the langiuif^e of the first patent from the Crown of England 
for lands in America, granted by Queen Elizabeth, June 11. liiTS. to Sir Humphrey 
Gilbert, wherein she gave him. his heir.s and assigns, forever, "full Power and 
Authority, to correct, punish, pardon, govern and rule, as well in Causes capital 
or criminal, as civil, all such her Subjects or others, as should adventure them- 
selves in the said Voyages, or should at any Time thereafter inhabit the said 
Lands," etc. The patent to Sir Walter Raleigh, in 1584, was in similar terms. 
By the Virginia Cliarter of May 23. 1609. the London Council of the Virginia Com- 
pany was authorized to appoint Governors, and "to make, ordain, and establish all 
Manner of Orders. Laws. Directions, Instructions, Forms, A Ceremonies of Gov- 
ernment & Magistracy, tit & necessary, for & concerning the Government of the 
said Colony & Plantation." The Governors so appointed, or at least sonde 
of them, exercised the most absolute sway, ruling as by martial law.-Hack- 
luyVs Voyages. III., 174-6,297-300; Hazard's State. Papers, I., 26, 86; Stith''s History

The patent of Charles I., to Sir Edmund Plowden, for New Albion (including 
New Jersey in great part), followed the precedents established by Elizabeth in 
granting ample powers of government —Pennsylva7iia Mag. of Hist, de Biog., VII., 
55. In like manner, the Dutch West India Company, authorized under its char- 
ter to appoint a Director-General and Council, to administer the affairs of New 
Netherland. delegated large powers to that oflicer, who. moreover, interpreted his 
commissions and instructions with the utmost liberality. — O'Callagfian's New 
Nelherla7i(X, 1., 400; II., 18. The charter of Nova Scotia, granted by James I. to 
Sir William Alexander. September 10, 1621, and the Novodamus of Charles I.. July 
12. 1625, for the same territory, confer the same powers of government as the ear- 
lier English patents for lands in America. See the patents to Alexander set out

resorted to by the British Government, and numerous private individuals, to over- 
power the Earl of Stirling, and subvert his lawful rights. Written by Himself," 
etc., Edinburgh, 1836. 55. 79. The foregoing recitals are instructive in the light of 
the commission to Gov. Philip Carteret, of New Jersey, hereinafter quoted. The 
Governors of New England had power which "differed little from that of the 
other magistrates." and they were more subject to the popular will than those 
in the other ColonieH. —I'al.fre)fs New Kngland. I.. ()7-68; II.. 9.

but alsoe upon the Seas in goeing cS: comeing to &. from the 
same as he or they in their good discretions shall think to bee 
fittest for the good of the Adventurers & Inhabitants there. "^ 

Even at this early date the practical English mind recog- 
nized the fact that laws made in and for England might not 
be exactly adapted to strange conditions in the new world, and 
that much latitude must be conceded to the '■'• inhabitants and 
adventurers" of the distant territories in framing laws for their 
government, who would iind it impossible to conform always 
to the laws and customs of the home country. 

When the Duke of York, by his lease and release of June 
23-34, 1664, conveyed to John Lord Berkley and Sir George 
Carteret the present territory of New Jersey, tiie grant em- 
braced not only the lands but "■ their and every of their appurte- 
n'nces in as full and ample manner as the same " were granted 
to the Duke himself, "and all the Estate Right Title interest 
benefitt advantage clayme & Demand of the said James Duke 
of York," etc.- This was understood to confer upon the 
Duke's grantees full powers of government. 

In " the Concessions and Agreement of the Lords Proprie- 
tors of the Province of New Ctesarea or New Jersey, to and 
with all and every of the Adventurers and all such as shall settle 
or plant there," it was carefully provided that all and every 
person and persons should "freely and fully have and enjoy his 
and their judgments and consciences in matters of religion 
throughout all the said Province . . . any law, statute or 
clause contained, or to be contained, usage or custom of this 
realm of England, to the contrary thereof in anywise notwith- 
standing;" and hberty was granted to the General Assembly 
to provide for the maintenance of a ministry.^ 

The General Assembly, moreover, was empowered " To 
enact and make all such laws, acts and constitutions as shall be 
necessary for the well government of the said Province, and them

act, constitnte and ordain all snch other laws, acts and constitu- 
tions as shall or may be necessary for the good, prosperity and 
settlement of the said Province."- In the same broad way the 
Governor and his Council were authorized and directed " To 
Act and doe all other thing or things that may conduce to the 
safetie peace and well Government of the said Province, as they 
shall see fitt, soe as they bee not contrary to the Lawes of the 
said Province. "3 

The Lords Proprietors, in their commission (February lo, 
1664-5) to Governor Philip Carteret empowered him "to do 
all and every other thing and things which unto the Share and 
Office of Governor doth belong or hath accustomed to belong, 
as fully and freely as any Governor hath ever had ;"^ and in their 
instructions to the Governor authorized him, with the advice 
and consent of the Council, "to make, do, perform and exe- 
cute all and every Act and Acts, Thing and Things, Powers 
and Authorities whatsoever, which we ourselves, may, can, 
ought or could do in, for, relating or concerning the Govern- 
ment both Civil and Military of the said Province Pro- 
vided also, That all the Executive Part of all the Powers 
hereby made and given, shall be made and exercised by our 
said Governor, to and with the advice of the Major Part of our 
Council," etc.'' 

Governor Philip Carteret wrote (February 25, 1665-6) to 
some persons who proposed settling on the Delaware that 
those coming three years after them, and settling in any other 
county, " must be conformable to such Laws and Customs as 
are there Established, Excepting in matters of Judgment and 
Opinion in Religion."*^

THE GOVERNMENT OF WEST JERSEY. IxxV 

After the brief Dutch interregiuim, 1673-4, the Duke of 
York, by his indentures of lease and release, July 28-39, 
1674, made a new conveyance to Sir George Carteret for East 
Jersey (Lord John Berkley having conveyed West Jersey to 
John Fenwick, Marcli iS, 1673-4),' "in as full and ample 
manner as the same is granted vnto the said James Duke of 
Yorke " by the patent of his brother the King, June 29, 
1664,"- and Sir George contirmed the Concessions of Fel). 10, 
1664-5.^ Carteret's widow and the trustees under his will (dated 
December 5, 1678) by lease and release, February 1-2, 16S1-2, 
having conveyed East Jersey to the Twelve Proprietors,^ and 
they having divided with twelve others, the Duke of York for- 
mally released to the Twenty-four Proprietors any and all in- 
terest retained by him in East Jersey, March 14, 1682-3,'' and 
the King, on November 23, 16S3, enjoined upon the inhab- 
itants " That they do submit and yield all due Obedience to 
the Laws and Government of the said Grantees, their Heirs 
and Assigns, as absolute Proprietors and Governours thereof 
. , . and also to their Deputy or Deputies, Agents, Lieuten- 
ants, and Officers lawfully Commissionated by them, accord- 
ing to the Powers and Authorities granted to them."'' 

By the quintipartite deed of July i, 1676, West Jersey 
passed into the ownership of William Penn, Nicholas Lucas, 
Gawen Lawrie and Edward Byllynge (John Fenwick being 
considered as having taken title as trustee for Byllynge). The 
new West Jersey Proprietors in a letter of June 26, 1676, de- 
clared : " We put the power in the people, that is to say, thev 
to meet, and choose one honest man for each propriety, who 
hath subscribed to the concessions ; all these men to meet as 
an assembly there, to make and repeal laws, to choose a gov- 
ernor, or a commissioner, and twelve assistants, to execute the 
laws during their pleasure. "''^ The Proprietors, Freeholders 
and Inhabitants of West Jersey, in their Concessions and 
Agreements, dated March 3, 1676-7, provided for the govern- 
ment of the Province by commissioners appointed by the Pro- 
prietors, until March 35, 1680, after which the inhabitants were

to choose annually, by " ballating Trunks," the commission- 
ers, " to govern and order the Aflairs of the said Province {^pro 
tempore) for the good and welfare of the said People, "^ who 
were guaranteed the right "from Time to Time, and at all 
Times, freely and fully [to] have, and enjoy his and their judg- 
ments, and the exercise of their Consciences in Matters of relig- 
ious Worship throughout all the said Province."- By the same 
instrument provision was made for the election of a General 
Assembly with power "To Enact and make all such Laws, Acts 
and Constitutions as shall be necessary for the well Govern- 
ment of the said Province, (and them to repeal) provided that 
the same be, as near as may be conveniently, agreeable to the 
primitive, antient and Fundamental Laws of the Nation of 
England," and not against the Concessions.^ The title of the 
Proprietors of West Jersey was confirmed by the Duke of 
York, by indenture dated August 6, 1680/ but in the mean- 
time Sir Edmond Andros, Governor of New York since 1673, 
had been exercising jurisdiction over West Jersey, and, to a 
limited extent, over East Jersey also, endeavoring to adminis- 
ter the Duke of York's Laws.'^ 

MARRIAGE LICENSES BY GOV. CARTERET. 

The sovereign power over New Jersey, granted by Patent 
from King Charles the Second to James Duke of York, and 
by him granted to Lord John Berkley and Sir- George Car- 
teret, was now to be exercised on the ground by the Governor 
appointed by the two Lords Proprietors. Thus, Governor 
Philip Carteret had vested in his person all the powers that the 
King himself could have exercised, had he not parted with his 
sovereignty over New Jersey. The long struggle of Henry 
VIIL with the Church of Rome had determined the question 
that the Church of England was a National Churcli, independ- 
ent of Rome, and having the King for its head, instead of the 
Pope. Hence, the King had supreme jurisdiction in all mat- 
ters ecclesiastical, including marriage and divorce. That be- 
ing so, the Lords Proprietors of New Jersey had like juris- 
diction here, to be administered by their Governor. Pursuing

MARRIAGE I-ICENSKS BY GOV. CARTERET. Ixxvii 

this line orari^ument, and acting uiuler tlie antlioiity conferred 
l>y his Instructions, Governor Carteret followed the pre- 
cedents of earlier American Governors, sanctioned by the 
Duke of York's Laws, and readily granted marriage licenses 
to those wishing to dispense with the delay and the notoriety 
of a publication of the lianns for three weeks. The earliest 
known of these licenses was in this lorm : 

" Whereas I have Received Information of a mutuall In- 
tent and agreement betwene Daniel Perrin of Elizaijeth Towne 
in the Province of New Jersev and Maria Thorel — of the same 
Towne Spinster to solemnize Alariage together for which they

Licenses in the same form were granted April 30, 1666; 
August 31, 1667; April 31, 166S, and frequently thereafter.- 
As the marriages in these cases were performed by James 
Bollen, the Secretary of the Province, who entered them on 
the records, it is very probable that many more licenses were 
granted of which we have no record, where the ceremony was 
performed by other Justices of the Peace.

Ixxviii EARLIEST MARRIAGE LAWS IN NEW JERSEY. 
EARLIEST MARRIAGE LAWS IN NEW JERSEY. 

Tlie marriage customs of a people are as enduring as those 
relating to burials. It could not be expected that the first 
settlers of New Jersey would in their new home adopt prac- 
tices on this most important subject ditfering from those to 
which they had been wont in tlieir previous places of resi- 
dence. When the Assembly of East Jersey met, in i66S, it 
was dominated by the eight English members from Elizabeth- 
town, Newark, Woodbridge, Middletown and Shrewsbury, 
Bergen having the other two Dutch members. They were 
mainly from New England (some of them having for a time 
sojourned on Long Island), and as was to have been expected 
they brought with them New England ideas, which, after all, 
were not so different from Old England's practices, save as 
modified by novel situations in a new country. This East 
Jersey Assembly enacted, May 30, 166S, respecting mar- 
riage : 

" For the preventing of unlawful Marriages, it is ordered 
and enacted, that no person or persons, Son, Daughter, Maid 
or Servant, shall be Married without the consent of his or her 
Parents, Masters or Overseers, and three Times published in 
and at some publick Meeting or Kirk, where the Party or Par- 
ties have tiieir most usual abode ; or set up in writing their 
Purposes of Marriage, on some Publick House, where they 
live, and there at least to abide for the space of Fourteen Days 
before Marriage, which is to be performed in some publick 
Place, if possible may be, and none but some approved Min- 
ister or Justice of the Peace within this Province, or some 
chief Officer, where such are not, shall be allowed to Marry or 
admit of any to join in Marriage, in their Presence, and under 
the Penalty of Twenty Pounds for acting contrary hereunto, 
and to be put out of their Office, according to the Liberty of 
Conscience granted by the Lords Proprietors in their Conces- 
sions : Always provided, That it is and may be lawful for the 
Governor to Grant his Licence, under his Hand and Seal, to 
any Person or Persons tliat are at their own disposing, or to 
any other under the Tuition of their Parents, Masters or Over- 
seers, to join in Matrimony; Provided, that the Parents, Mas- 



EARLIKSl' MAKKIACiE LAWS IN NEW JERSEY. Ixxix 

ters or Overseers are present and consenting thereunto, or that 
their consent be attested by some publick Officer, and present- 
ed to the Governor before the granting thereof, and the others 
to clear themselves by Oath or by Certificate."' 

This combined the essential features of the Massachusetts 
Bay act of 1639 ' *^'^^ statute of New Haven Colony, of 1653 or 
earlier; and the Duke of York's Laws. 

SOME EARI.V DIVORCES. 

As the Governor's jurisdiction in licensing marriages was 
recognized by the foregoing statute, so, conversely, he was ad- 
mitted to have power in granting divorces, as appears by this 
instrument, in 1669 : 

" These are to Give Notice to all persons Whome It may 
Concerne that Whereas I am Informed that Hopewell Hull 
hath VnLawfully taken to Wife the Daughter of John Martin 
of Woodbridge, Without Observing the Lawes and Customes 
of England Or these parts of America, I the Governor of this 
province doe declare that the Mariage & that all others that are 
or shall be Comitted In the same Manner to be null Void and 
of none Effect, And they that doe Live In that VnLawfull Es- 
tate of Matrimony Alay be Prossecuted as such as doe Live In 
the Estate of fornication. And that the Children begotten by 
them are to be accompted Bastards and not Capable of Inher- 
itance. Given vnd'' my hand and Scale the 29^'! day of De- 
cemlj'' 1669."'- 

The following form of divorce by the mutual consent of the 
parties was regarded as valid : 

" Know all p'sons Whom It may Concerne That Marma- 
duke Potter now living w'''" the Corporation of Woodbridge 
In the province aforesaid Apearing before mee James Bollen

This manner of divorce was apparently based on a clause 
of the Duke of York's Laws, providing tliat in case of the 
involuntary absence of a husl)and or wife for five years, on his 
or her return '•'■ it shall and may be lawfull for the said man or 
woman to Challenge his or her pre-marriage, ami obtain an 
order for their Cohabiting as formerly, but if neither shall 
sue for such an order, They may by mutuall agreement Enter 
a Release to each other in the office of Records, and both re- 
main free from their former obligations. "- 

SECOND NrARRIAOES. 

The Friends steadily enjoined upon their people the emi- 
nent propriety of those entering upon second marriages pro- 
viding properly for their own children by previous marriages. 
George Fox by way of example details at length the pains he 
was at when about to marry Margaret Fell, to see that she had 
secured her own children by her former marriage, and to as- 
sure himself that they were satisfied. •'' The following docu- 
ment illustrates how this injunction was carried out in one in- 
stance in Fen wick's Colony (Salem), New Jersey ; 

" To ALL PEOPLE to whome the p'sent Writting shall 
come Ann Craven late of I>yme-house in the ^)ish of Steprey

MOKE COEONIAI. MAKKIAGE LAWS. 

Returning to the subject of legislation concerning marr'age 
in New Jersey, it may be notetl that in the Fundamental Con- 

1 Liber Siilem B, Kocords in ollice of the Secretary of State, at Trenton, p US. 



Ixxxiv MORE COLONIAL MARRIAGE LAWS, 16S2-3. 

stitutions for the Province of East New Jersey in America, 
Anno Domini 16S3, it was provided: 

" \X. Tliat all Marriages not forbidden in the Law of God, 
shall be esteemed lawful, where the Parents or Guardians be- 
ing first acquainted, the Marriage is publickly intimated in 
such Places and Manner as is agreeable to Mens different per- 
swasions in Religion, being afterwards still solemnized before 
creditable Witnesses, by taking one another as Husband and 
Wife, and a Certificate of the whole, under the Parties and 
Witnesses Hands, being brought to the proper Register for 
that End, under a Penalty if neglected."' 

The influence of the Qiiakers was clearly shown in the 
foregoing provision, and also in the following act of the East 
Jersey Assembly, in March, 16S3 : 

" That all Marriages (not forbidden l)y the Law of God) 
shall be lawful^ Parents or Guardians shall be first consulted, 
and consenting thereto, and the Intention of Marriage shall be 
published at least three weeks before it be Solemnized by tak- 
ing one another as Man and Wife, the Publication shall be En- 
tered and Registered by the Clerk of the Assembly, or publick 
Place where it shall be Published, and the Solemnization shall 
be performed by and before some Justice of the Peace or other 
Magistrate within the Province, unless the Justice of the Peace 
or Magistrate refuse to be present, and the Certificate thereof 
entered in the Register of the Town and County where it is 
finished."- 

About the same time (May 2-6, 16S2) the West Jersey 
Assembly enacted as follows : 

" That justices of the peace have power, and are hereby 
authorized, within their Jurisdiction, to solemnize Mar- 
riages ;~ both Parties so to be Married having first published 
their intent of Marriage, Fourteen Days in some publick 
Place to be appointed for that Purpose ; and that the Parents 
or the Trustees manifest and show no lawful reason against it. 
And if any Justice shall presume to join a Couple in Matri-

mony, witliout the Consent and Knowledge of tlie Parents or 
Trustees of such Persons so Married (if such Consent can 
reasonably be obtained) then such Justice so otVending shall be 
fined according to Discretion of the General Assembly: After 
which Alarriage the Clerk or Register is hereby appointed and 
authorized to enter the Day and Year whereon the same Mar- 
riage was solemnized into the Publick Register."' 

This act was clearly on its face opposed to the Friends' 
view that Marriage should be a simple agreement between the 
two parties most interested, testified in the presence of wit- 
nesses, and without the mediation of priest or magistrate. 
However, the Friends of Burlington seem to have effected an 
ingenious compromise, by which it was the practice to have a 
Justice of the Peace present as one of the witnesses before 
whom the ceremony took place. The following entries in the 
early records of Burlington apparently bear out tliis con- 
jecture :

PROTECTING UNWARY MAIDENS. 

At a time wlien a new and sparsely settled country was 
likely to be overrun with adventurers, it was manifestly ad- 
;;ji^5j^ visable to protect the young and unwary against such gentry, 
as the West Jersey Assemlily did by the following act of 5th 
of 7th mo., 16S3, which, moreover, was strictly in line with 
the prudent regulations of Friends, in securing their youth 
against hasty marriages with unknown strangers: 

" Whereas it hath pleased God to commit this Country and 
Province, into the Hands of such who (for the generality of 
them) are fearing God, antl painful antl industrious, in the 
promoting and improving the said Province ; and for the bet- 
ter preventing of such as are Prophane, Loose, Idle and 
Scandalous from settling amongst us, who are, and will not 
be only unserviceable, but greatly burdensome to the Piovince. 
// /s thercfo}-e hereby efiacied by the Authority aforesaid, 
that all Person and Persons, who shall transport him, or them- 
selves, into this Province, shall within Eigliteen Months after 
he or they shall arrive in said Province, procure and produce a

of every marriage. It was said that thirteen marriages had talven place in Bur-

Poor, with three or more creditable Persons of the Neighbour- 
hood, who inhabit or belong to the Place where he or they did

they came not clandestinely away, and (if unmarried) that he 
or she are clear from former Engagements, in that particular, 
and also that he or she, are such as live soberly and honestly 
to the best of their Knowledge. And that no Justice shall pre- 
sume to Marry any such Person or Persons, who shall come 
into this Province before such Certificate be Procured, or that 
it be laid before the Governor, and two Justices, and give 
them sutiicient satisfaction concerning their clearness. And 
that all such Person and Persons who shall settle in the said 
Province, and shall refuse or neglect to procure such Certifi-

A MARRIAGE THAT WAS A FAILURE. 

That marriage (at least of the common law kind) was 
sometimes a failure two hundred years ago is evident from a

TIIK COLONIAI, PRACTICE AS TO MARRIAGE LICENSES. 

Tlie practice of the day regarding marriage licenses is thus 
set forth in a petition to the Governor and Council, November 
37th, 16S4: 

"The humble Request of James Emott Dep^ Secretary of 
this Province being then Read setting forth that whereas it has 
bin the Laudable Custome and practice as well in this Prov- 
ince as all other Neighbouring Adjacent provinces that vpon 
applicac'on made for a License for Solemnizeing Marriage the 
Secretary vpon taken Security of such p'"sons as Request the 
same that they are vnder noe other obligac'on or p'contract of 
Marriage immediately to make out a License p'curelng the 
same to bee signed by the Governor and given vnder the scale 
of the province— praying an Order of Councill may bee passed 
for the Continueing y*' said Custome — After the same were 
Considerably Debated the whole Coiuicill was Consenting to 
passe an Order for the Continuac'on of the said Custome, but 
the Deputy Governor- Desired that the same might be Differ'd 
till the next setting of this Councill" — '^ 

The subject of this petition engaged the attention of the 
Legislature in 1693, whether for curing irregularities in mar- 
riage, or to increase the revenue of certain oilicials from 
license fees, does not appear. The proceedings are thus 
minuted in the Joiunal of the Governor and Council -•

T'en Pounds for each such Oftence."^ 

It occasionally happened that a marriage license was ob- 
tained in vain. For example, in the case of that granted July 
7, 1673, to Thomas Williams, " of Exmouth in the county of 
Devon, now of this Province," and Honnor Justice, " bornd " 
in Ireland. Opposite the record of this license is the marginal 
note : " This is null and not allowed of by the Deputy Gover-

2 This was the confession embodied in many of the earl.v statutes of the Col- 
onies, showing how impossible it was found in practice to compel the people to 
conform strictly and always to any law which interfered with their natural rights 
in assuming this most important relation. The Virginia legislature even went 
so far (4th and 12th Acts of the Assembly) as to prohibit all marriages to be sol- 
emnized without " a lawful Minister " (that is, of the Church of England), and 

.'•imposing the punishment due for fornication on the parties and making their 
children illegitimate." But the Bishop of London was constrained to admit, in 
1678, that there was " a great defect in the execution of those" laws, which he 
considered " wholesome."— iV. Y. Col. Docs., III.. 2.53.

nor."' Anotiiei" instance, due to tlie tickleness of human na- 
ture, was when a license was issued to Samuel Moore, of the 
town of Woodhridge, and Mary Higgins, widow of Richard 
Iliggins, of New Piscataway, September 6, 167S, a marginal 
entry informing us: "This is null one of the persons recant- 
ing the agreement."- The record is silent as to whether it was 
the anxious bridegroom or the coy widow who '•'recanted" even 
after the license had been obtained.'^ 

A MARRIAGE LICENSE IN 1695. 

The following is the oldest New Jersey marriage license 
known to be in existence -J 

" The Governohr and Proprietors of the Province of 
East. New Jersey, To Any of his Majesties Justices of the 
peace In the sayd Province, to whose hands these presents shall 
come, Greeting W//ei'cas Application hath beene made

by James Carteret, President of tlie Province by appointment of the General As- 
sembly, and who had usurped the powers of Gov. Philip Carteret during the hit- 
ter's absence. James Carteret sailed for Carolina the latter part of June or the 
first part of July. If the license had been issued by him, that of itself would be 
sufficient reason for its revocation by John Berry, who had been commissioned 
Deputy Governor by Gov. Carteret when leaving for England a year before, with 
Secretary James Bollen. It is quite probable, however, that the license had been 
signed in blank by Gov. Carteret, and issued on the day it bears date by the act- 
ing Secretar.v of the Province, and that it was annulled for good caus(! coming to 
the knowledge of the Deputy Governor.

LORD CORNBURY's INSTRUCTIONS. 

The Proprietors of East Jersey and those of West Jersey 
having surrendered their rights of government to Qtieen Anne 
and her successors, on April 15, 1702, New Jersey thereupon 
became a united Royal Province, subject to the English crown. 
The Qiieen appointed her cousin, Edward Hyde, Viscount 
Cornbury, to the post of Governor of New Jersey, and gave 
him his Instructions, dated November 16, 1702, which con- 
tained these clauses : 

"75. And to the End the Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of the 
Lord Bishop of London, may take Place in our said Province, 
so far as conveniently may be, we do think fit that you give all 
Countenance and Encouragement to the Exercise of the same, 
excepting only the collating to Benefices, granting' Licenses 
for JSTarriage^ ami Probate of Wills, which we have reserved 
to you our Governor, and the Commander in Chief of said 
Province for the Time being. 

" 76. And you are to take especial Care that a Table of 
Marriages established by the Cannons of the Church of Eng- 
land, be hung up in every Orthodox Church, and duly ob- 
served, and you are to endeavour to get a Law passed in the 
Assembly of our said Province, (if not already done) for the 
strict Observation of the said Table."' 

THE laws of ENGLAND IN FORCE. 

As New Jersey was now under the government of Great 
Britain it became important to have it decided just how far the 
law in force in England was obligatory upon the inhabitants of 
this Province. 

In 1720 Mr. West gave an opinion on the extension of the 
common law to the colonies, in which he said : 

1 N. J. Archives. II., 55J; Learning and Spicer, 639; Smith's Hist N. J.. 230. 
These Instructions were the same as those given to Gov. Thomas Dongan, of New 
York, in 168(5; and to Col Henry Sloughter, Governor of New York, in 1690.— iT. 
Y. Col. Docts.. III., 37l', 6!^8. In the case of the former, the Archbishop of Canter- 
hury was recognized as the ecclesiastical superior. 



THE I.AVVS OF ENGLAND IN KOUCK. XCV 

"•The Common Law of Ent^lainl is the Common Law oC 
the IMantations, ami all statutes in affirmance of the Common 
Law passed in England antecedent to the settlement of the col- 
ony, are in force in that colony, unless there is some private 
Act to the contrary ; though no statutes made since those set- 
tlements are there in force unless the colonists are particularly 
mentioned. Let an Englishman go where he vvill, he carries 
as much of law and liberty with liim, as the nature of things 
will hear."^ 

In 1729 the Attorney-General Yorke gave an important 
opinion upon the statute law in the following words : 

" I am of opinion that such general statutes as have been 
made since the settlement of Maryland, and are not by express 
words located either to the plantations in general or to the 
Province in particular, are not in force there, unless they have 
been introduced and decLired to be laws by some Acts of As- 
sembly of the Province, or have been received there by long 
uninterrupted usage or practice. "-' 

In a report to the Lords of Trade, June 11, 1774, on the 
condition of the Province of New York, Governor William 
Tryon wrote : 

" The Common Law of England is considered as the 
Fundamental Law of the Province, and it is the received Doc- 
trine that all the Statutes (not Local in their Nature, and v/hich 
can be fitly applied to the circumstances of the Colony) enact- 
ed before the Province had a Legislature, are binding upon the 
Colony ; but that Statutes passed since do not aflect the Col- 
ony, unless by being specially named, such appears to be the 
Intention of the British Legislature."''

XCVl SOME PECUI>IAR MARRIAGE CUSTOMS. 

SOME PECULIAR MARRIAGE CUSTOMS. 

The popular application of certain well known principles of 
law often leads to quaint and curious customs, and marriage is 
no exception to such interpretation of the law. Bv the com- 
mon law " the marriage is an absolute gift of all chattels per- 
sonals (of the wife) in possession of her own right, whether 
the husband survive the wife or not."^ Conversely, " a hus- 
band was to be charged for all debts of his wife, dura solo."^ 
These laws led to a peculiar custom in England, which was 
transplanted to America, and was practiced in New Jersey, as 
appears by the following entry in our public records: 

" Thomas Holmes of Woodbridge brickmaker and Lucra- 
cia the widow of John Pierce of New York [marriage li- 
cense issued July 14, 1679] were married at Mr. Moor's house 
in Woodbridge Thursday 17 July 1679 by James Bolleii. 

" The said Holmes disclaymed any of ye Widow's Estate, 
but took her naked only her shift."*' 

The ol)servant Professor Kalm thus entertainingly explains 
the custom and its practice in New Jersey in the middle of the 
eighteenth century : 

" There is a peculiar diverting custom here, in regard to 
marrying. When a man dies, and leaves his widow in great 
poverty, or so that she cannot pay all the debts with what little 
she has left, and that, notwithstanding all that, there is a per- 
son who will marry her, she must be married in no other habit 
than her shift. By that means, she leaves to the creditors of 
her deceased husband her cloaths, and every thing which they 
find in the house. But she is not obliged to pay them any 
thing more, because she has left them all she was worth, even 
her cloaths, keeping only a shift to cover her, which the laws 
of the country cannot refuse her. As soon as she is married, 
and no longer belongs to the deceased husband, she puts on the 
cloaths which the second has given her. The Swedish clergy- 
men here have often been obliged to marry a woman in a dress 
which is so little expensive, and so light. This appears from

3 E. J. Deeds, Liber No. 3. f. 158. 



SOME PECULIAR NrAURlAGE CUSTOMS. XCVll 

the registers kept in the chinches,^ and from the accounts 
given by the clergymen themselves. I have likewise often seen 
accounts of such marriages in the English gazettes, which are 
printed in these colonies; and I particularly remember the fol- 
lowing relation : A woman went, with no other dress than her 
shift, out of the house of her deceased husband to tiiat of her 
bridegroom, who met her half-way with tine new cloaths, and 
said, before all who were present, that he lent them his l)iide, 
and put them on her with his own hands. It seems, he said, 
that he lent the cloaths, lest, if he had said he gave them, the 
creditors of the hrst husband should come, and take them from 
her ; pretending that she was looked upon as the relict of her 
first husband, before she was marrietl to the second. "- 

When a Jerseywoman took up her residence in a neighbor- 
ing Province she seems to have taken this peculiar custom with 
her, if we are to believe a veracious newspaper of the day : 

" Annapolis in Maryland June 4. About a Fortnight ago 
there happened in Frederick County in this Province, as com- 
ical a Wedding, as we remember to have heard of: A 
Couple, with their Guests, ( having obtain'd a License) came 
to the House of a reverend Clergyman, late in the Evening, 
after he had been in Bed some time with his Wife, and desired 
to be married ; he willing to oblige them, got up and dress'd 
himself in order to perform the Ceremony ; but the ]?ride- 
groom having imbib'd a Notion, that if he married a Woman 
with any thing, he should be obliged to pay all her Debts, and 
not otherwise, and as she came from the Province of New Jer- 
sey; he was doubtful about her Circumstances ; the obliging 
Bride, to remove all incumbrances, stripped to her Buff, and 
two Women held a Sheet between her and the Clergyman 
while he performed his Office; but she having forgot her Cap 
at undressing, in the midst of the Ceremony it came into her 
Mind, and she pulled that ofi'too, and flung it on the Bed, and 
was married to her Spouse (if not in a Wedding Suit) in her 
Birth Day Suit : After the Ceremony was over, the Bride-

XCviii A WORD AS TO "bundi.ing." 

groom put on her one of his own Shirts to cover her — This Ac- 
count the Reader may perhaps look on as improbable and un- 
true, but he may be assured, it is a certain and naked 
Truth."' 

In this connection a word may be expected regarding that 
singular custom known as "• Bundling," where young people 
carried on their courting under circumstances calculated to 
hasten the wedding. The usage is an ancient one in the 
rural districts of England, was introduced into New Eng- 
land by the early settlers, was very generally practiced by the 
original Dutch inhabitants of New Jersey and their descend- 
ants so late as 1S30, and was rnuch in vogue among the New 
England settlers in West Jersey down to the Revolution, if 
not later. The writer has been assured b}' persons of the 
highest respectability that they "bundled" when courting, 
and that the practice was never, to their knowledge, attended 
with ill consequences.' 

THE MARRIAGE ACT OF ijK). 

The origin of this Act does not appear. No petition for it 
is mentioned in the journals of either branch of the Legisla- 
ture. It may have been politics of a certain questionable sort, 
as the law was to the pecuniary interest of the numerous jus- 
tices of the peace throughout the Province. Perhaps it was 
designed to correct the growing abuses of the existing system. 
It shows much care and artificial skill in its drafting — so much 
so that it remained imclianged on the statute books for three- 
quarters of a century. The bill is first mentioned in the pro-

XIX., pp. 1G4-165. It will be remembered that when Benjamin Franklin was con- 
templating; marriage with his future wife, one of the difficulties in the way was 
the fact that her former husband "had left many debts, which his successor 
might be called upon to pay." .See Sparks's Frankli;i, I,, 96.

THE PRACTICE REGARDING MARRIAGE LICENSES. 

Although the Act of 1719 in terms relates only to the mar- 
riage of minors, it is evident from the records that the cus- 
tom of " marrying by license," as it was called, becairie more 
general from this time. This fact may have been due to the 
impression that licenses were required in all cases where there 
had been no publication of the banns — which, indeed, public 
sentiment required among church-going people — but largely, 
no doubt, because of the rapidly increasing population of an 
unsettled character, and the growing reluctance of amorous 
swains and maidens to have their intentions proclaimed from 
the pulpit, or published at the church door. 

The practice seems to have been this : the blank bonds and 
blank marriage licenses (the latter signed by the Governor) 
were distrilnited to certain public officers — usually the county 
clerks. Upon the execution and delivery to them of a mar- 
riage bond they would fill out and issue the license to the anx- 
ious bridegroom, who would take it and his prospective bride 
before a minister or a justice of the peace, who was thereby 
authorized to perform the marriage ceremony without proof

of the publishing of banns, or the consent of parents or 
guardians. The license was retained b}- the person celebrat- 
ing the marriage, and ultimately went the way of waste paper, 
as very few have been preserved. The bonds were filed 
with the Secretary of the Province, and seem to have been 
kept witli much care. Ultimately, they were brought together 
from Perth Amboy and Burlington, the depositaries of the rec- 
ords of East Jersey and of West Jersey, respectively, and were 
filed in the office of the Secretary of State, at Trenton, about 
1790. 

Prof. Kalm, writing at Raccoon, New Jersey, under date 
of December 18, 174S, thus describes the usage as to marriage 
licenses : 

"All persons who intend to be married, must either have 
their banns published three times from the pulpit, or get a li- 
cence from the governor. The banns of the poorer sort of 
people only are published, and all those who are a little above 
them get a licence from the governor. In that licence he de- 
clares that he has examined the afl'air, and found no obstacles 
to hinder the marriage, and therefore he allows it. The licence 
is signed by the governor; but, before he delivers it, the bride- 
groom must come to him in company with two creditable and 
well known men, who answer for him tliat there really is no 
lawful obstacle to his marriage. These men must subscribe a 
certificate, in which they make themselves answerable for, and 
engage to bear all damages of, any complaints made by the re- 
lations of the persons who intend to be married, by their 
guardians, their masters, oi' by those to whom they may have 
been promised before. For all these circumstances the gov- 
ernor cannot possibly know. They further certify that nothing 
hinders the intended marriage, and that nothing is to be feared 
on that account. For a licence they pay five and twenty shil- 
lings in Pennsylvania money, at Philadelphia.' The governor 
keeps twenty shillings, or one pound, and the remaining five 
shillings belong to his secrctarv. The licence is directed only 
to protestant clergvmen. The quakers have a peculiar licence 
to their marriages. But as it would be very troublesome, es- 

1 This in Pennsylvania, but the account applies to New Jersey. 



PKACTICE REGARDING MARRIAGE LICENSES. CVli 

pecially for those who live far from the governor's residence to 
come up to town for ever}' licence, and to bring the men with 
them who are to answer foi' them, the clergymen in the coun- 
try commonly take a sufHcient number of licences and certifi- 
cates, which are ready printed, with blanks left for the names ; 
they give them occasionalK', and get the common money, one 
pound, iive shillings, for each of them, besides something for 
their trouble. The money that they have collected, they de- 
liver to the governor as soon as thev come to town, together 
with the certificates, which are signed by two men, as above 
mentioned ; they then take again as many licences as they think 
suf^cient ; from hence we may conceive that the governors in 
the English Nortii American colonies, besides their salaries, 
have very consitlerable revenues. 

"• There is a great mixture of people of all sorts in these 
colonies, paitlv of such as are lately come over from Europe, 
and partly of such as have not yet any settled place of abode. 
Hence it frequently happens that when a clergvman has mar- 
ried such a couple, the britlegroom says he has no money at 
present, but would pay the fee at the first opportunity : how- 
ever he goes oft' with his wife, and the clei'gyman never gets 
his due. This proceeding has given occasion to a custom 
which is now common in Maryland. When the clergyman 
marries a very poor couple, he breaks oft' in the middle of the 
Liturgy, and cries out, Where is my fee? The man must then 
give the money, and the clergyman proceeds; but if the liride 
groom has no money, the clergyman tlefers the marriage till 
another time, when the man is better provided. People of 
fortune, of whom the clergyman is sure to get his due, need not 
fear this disagreeable question, when they are married. 

" However, though the parson lias got licences to marry a 
couple, yet if he be not careful, he may get into very disagree- 
able circumstances; for in many parts of the country there is a 
law made, which, notwithstantling the governor's licence, 
greatly limits a clergyman in some cases. He is not allowed 
to marry a couple who are not yet of age, unless he be certain 
of the consent of their parents. He cannot marry such stran- 
gers as have bound themselves to serve a certain umnber of 



CVin A SWEDISH CRITICISM. 

years, in order to pay off their passage from Europe, without 
the consent of their masters ; if he acts without their consent, 
or in opposition to it, he must pay a penalty of fifty pounds, 
Pensylvania currency, though he has the license, and the cer- 
tificate of the two men who are to answer for any objection. 
But parents or masters give themselves no concern about these 
men, but take hold of the clergyman, who is at liberty to prose- 
cute those who gave him the certificate, and to get his damages 
repaid. With the consent of the parents and masters, he may 
marry people without danger to himself. No clergyman is al- 
lowed to marry a negro with one of European extraction, or 
he must pay a penalty of one hundred pounds, according to the 
laws of Pensylvania."' 

Acrelius gives a somewhat similar account, but in a bitter 
spirit, regretting the Swedes' departure from their ancient cus- 
toms : 

"Marriage is quick, and not according to rule. To be 
published three Sundays and then married is only for poor peo- 
ple. The law of the land permits a much shorter way, which 
is more agreeable and more used, except that it costs money. 
The Governor has a right to license marriage without the pub- 
lication of the banns. In every county office marriage licenses 
are issued in this wise ; that the bridegroom gives his bond to 
pay to the Governor from five to ten thousand dollars copper, 
according to the ability of the applicants, if it should be found 
that the marriage of the persons named therein is not lawful. 
Thereupon a Manifest is issued, which is called a License, in 
the name of the Governor, to some Protestant Minister to per- 
form the marriage ceremony. And as this gives the Governor 
a considerable income, so he quite willingly allows the Minis- 
ters themselves to keep such a license in blank with his name 
subscribed, for which payment is made when the bonds are 
handed in. The abuses of this are indescribable. Yet such a 
marriage license is usual throughout the whole English govern- 
ment, although now much more restricted than formerly. Our 
Swedish people, as naturalized Englishmen, dance to the same 
tune, and our Swedish men who settle here find an equal

pleasure, or are compelled thereto to gratify their brides, who 
would rather break off their engagements than be proclaimed 
in church. But when such a license comes to the bridal pair, 
in season or out of season, even if it l)e in the middle of tiie 
night or early in the morning, if they so please with more or 
less ccjmpany, then the marriage immL'tiiatclv takes place. The 
bride is in her usual dress, so that in that respect she cannot 
be distinguished from any of the company. Very few cele- 
brate tlieir marriage with a meal and entertainment. Plays 
and dancing are but little in use, and are usually counted as 
among loose and disreputable sports. Seldom do the Minis- 
ters prevail upon any britlal paities to go to church ; but if this 
is done, the marriage takes place after service. The old speak 
of the joy with which tlieir bridal parties formerly came to 
church and sat during the whole service before the altar; but 
when it comes to the time for their own children to do so, then 
they either run off to some English Minister with a license, or 
the parents are afraid of this, or get some otlier reason for it, 
and so it is impossible any more to root out such an inveterate 
abuse."' 

It may be added here, that about (8So the then Secretary of 
State — Henry C. Kelsey — caused the marriage bonds in his 
oilice to be arranged and bound in tliirty-two stout folio vol- 
umes, and an index of the same to be prepared, in two volumes 
— one of the men, and the other of the women. The index 
also includes the names of persons to whom licenses were is- 
sued prior to the Act of 17191 '•* shown by the entries in the 
records in the same office. 

HOSTILITY TO THE MARRIAGE LICENSE SYSTEM. 

The quotations from Kalm and Acrelius indicate the char- 
acter of the opposition to tiie system of requiring marriage 
licenses. It was for the rich, rather than the poor. A license 
cost a man a month's wages or more. When the Stamp Act 
was passed, in 1765, this was regarded as so unconscionable an 
additional burden that by common consent it was not enforced 
so far as marriage licenses were concerned, in New Jersey.-

2 N. J. Archives, XXIV., 687. 



ex HOSTIIJIY TO TIIK MARRIAGE LICENSE SYSTEM. 

The clergy of the Church of England viewed the practice — 
coupled as it was with provisions for marriage by civil magis- 
trates, as an unwarrantable attack on the church and on their 
own pierogatives. The Rev. Richard Backhouse, writing 
from Chester, I'enn., May 14, 1730, to the Secretary of the 
Society for the Propagatior. of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, 
says : 

" We live in a Government which is a stepmother to our 
Church, who can't rest contented only with taking away our 
properties and percjuisites and giving them to others. But now 
has struck even at constitution itself bv making an Act' which 
not only prohiliits us to publish but to marry lawfully accord- 
ing to the constitution of the Church of England without the 
license of Parents, Guardians, Tutors, Masters, &c., &c., first 
iiad antl ol)tained in writing untler hand upon tlie penalty of 
£50."- 

The Episcopal clergv of Pennsylvania and the three coun- 
ties upon Delaware, imder date of 16 April, I7'30, represented 
to the Society that this had " a manifest tendency to extirpate 
the doctrine and discipline of the Church of England out of the 
said Province. That it is arbitrary and tyrannical ..." and 
they therefore urged that this ^ odious and tyrannical Law " be 
repealed " at the King's Council Board. "'^ 

The clergy of the Church of England in New Jersey 
memorialized the Bishop of London on the subject, who at 
their request sent this representation to the Lords of Trade, 
under date of November 12, 1765 : 

" The Bishop of London at the request of the Clergy of 
the Province of New [ersey begs leave to represent to the 
Lords of Trade and Plantations, that by an old Law the 
licences for Marriages are directed to any Protestant Minister 
or Justice of the Peace, which however necessary at the first 
Establishment of the Colony to facilitate Marriages, when there

were few Ministers in the Country, seems ;it present not only 
preJLulicial to the Clerp^v, who are depriv'il of a consideiable 
part of their Income, but gives occasion to many Inconven- 
iences anti abuses. 

" It ;i])pears In' a ktter from New Jersey dated Dec : 20th 
1760, that the Clergy of that Province petitioned their Gov- 
ernor (Mr. Boone) to alter tlie Direction of the Licences. By 
his Answer He did not think himself authoriz'd by his Instruc- 
tion.s to complv with their Petition, as He thought such an Al- 
teration must take place by Order of tlie Lords of Trade upon 
the Bishop of London's Application. 

'•The Clergv of New Jersev ha\'e repeated their request to 
the Bishop of London, who hopes, that the Lortis of Trade 
and Plantations will take the matter into Consideration, anil if 
they see no particular Objections will give their Instructi(jns to 
the Governor of that Province, that for the future Alarriage 
Licences may be directetl only to a Protestant ^Minister of the 
Gospel."^ 

For some reason, the Lords of Trade prefeired to shift the 
responsibility upon Governor Franklin, to whom they wrote 
tlie following letter, dated Dec. 12th, 176^ : 

"• The inclosed Memorial stating the propriety of Licences 
for Marriages in New Jersev being directeil to the Clergy only, 
has l)een presented to Us by the Bisliop of London. 

•^ If there is no Law in force, by which tiie Civil Magistrate 
is authorized to perform tlie Marriage Rites, or if long usage 
and custom has not established such a practice ; We see no ob- 
jection to what his Lordship purposes: But as it does not ap- 
pear to U^s from any Information we c tn collect here, how the 
case stands in respect to this matter, we desire you will by the 
first opportunity acquaint Us, whether the civil Magistrates in 
New Jersey do or do not perform those Ceremonies ; and if 
they do; whether it is by virtue of any tleclared Law, or by 
usage only ; and if the latter, whetiier such practice niay in your 
opinion be altered in the manner prijposed by the Bishop of 
London without Inconvenience or Complaint. "'- 

Nothing came of these memorials. Civil marriage had 
been too long estal)lished by law and custom in New Jersey to

make it worth while for the politic Governor — steadfast 
Churchman though he was — to even suggest a change, espec- 
ially in a Province where the Dutch, the Presbyterians and the 
Qiiakers formed so large a proportion of the population. We 
do not find that he even replied to the Lords of Trade on the 
subject. 

BISHOP WHITE ON MARRIAGE LICENSES. 

The Rt. Rev. William White, Bishop of Pennsylvania, 
doubtless voiced a very general sentiment regarding marriage 
licenses in this forcible and comprehensive letter (November 
or December, 17SS,) to the Governor of that State: 

" When I had ye Flonor, yesterda}', of stating to your Ex- 
cellency my Objections to ye present system of Marriage 
Licenses, & you condescended to recommend to me ye pro- 
moting of a clerical Representation of ye Subject ; I expressed 
my Doubts as to ye Expediency of such a Measure. My Reason 
is, that I do not think ye Clergy, as such, materially interested 
in the correcting of ye Evil. We marry whom we please, un- 
der no other Restriction than what should prevail in every 
Line of Life, if not Invading of ye Rights of others. It is 
True, a Stranger may be imposed on, by his imagining that a 
license from Government is something more than a blank 
Paper. But to prevent this, I have made it my Business to 
advertise every si.ch, of ye Church under my care, of ye State 
of ye Case & of his own Responsibility. 

" It was as a Citizen that I introduced ye Subject to your 
Excellency ; And ye evils which, as such, I reprobate in ye 
present System are as follows : 

"i. The Practice of issuing Licences is, as I apprehend, 
without any Foundation of Law. The only Passage in our 
Acts of Assembly that can be supposed applicable, & this can 
be so by Implication only, defines a lawful Licence to be one 
which contains ye Consent of the Parent or Guardian ex- 
pressed in ye Body of it. But such a Licence I never saw, nor 
do I know of any Clergyman who has. 

" 2dly. It seems to me (I speak it with submission) Dis- 
reputable to Government, to be in ye Exercise of an Act of 



BISHOP WmTE ON MARRIAGE LICENSES. CXlll 

Authority, disregai ded (as far as I can hear) <.^ that with Im- 
punity, by the most respectable Clergymen in this City ; who, 
instead of thinking themselves under any Obligation, either of 
Law or of Morals, to ask for ye Licence, consider it rather as 
a Snare, against which they are to be on their Guard. 

" 3dly. The Licenses, as issued, are a most cruel Invasion 
of domestic Rights. For, as if it were not enough, that ye 
Citizen has ye Peace of his Family exposed to ye acts of ye 
desperate Adventurer, ye V^illain robs him of his Child under 
a warrant with ye Seal of ye State annexed to it, & signed by 
ye first Magistrate. • I hope your Excellency will not mistake 
me ; I am as much an Enemy to domestic Tyranny as to ye 
civil ; And I know that there sho'd be a certain Age when 
young People may dispose of themselves without the Consent 
of their Parents. What I contend for is, that there should also 
be a Period, during which ye Parent should have an uncon- 
troulable Authority over ye Child, in ye Article of preventing 
Marriage. 

•'As to ye Bond of £ioo taken at the otlice, I think noth- 
ing of it. To my Certain Knowledge it has been taken, both 
before & since ye Revolution, from persons not worth loo 
pence ; And besides, there are Doubts as to ye Recovery of ye 
Penalty. I should be sorry to be understood, m this Part of 
ye vSubject, as reflecting either on ye worthy Gentleman who 
has, nominally, ye Administration of ye Licences, or on his 
Deputy, who is supposed to do his Business. On ye contrary, 
I declare that 1 believe ye Fault to be, not in them, but in ye 
System, which while it prevails, must involve ye present 
Consequences, let who will have ye Administration. And be- 
sides, I have not seen above one or two Licences during Col. 
Biddle's Secretaryship, nor long before. 

"4thly. It may be of Importance to mention that ye Prac- 
tice has been stigmatized as illegal by ye Council of Censors. 
I speak from Report, not having seen their Resolves on ye

Subject. But my Authority is such that I cannot doubt ye 
Truth of it. 

" And now, Sir, if your Excellency is disposed to listen to 
my Proposal of a Remedy, it is as follows : 

"i. In regard to all Persons marrying agreeably to ye 
Notifications required by their respective religious Societies, ye 
Clergyman celebrating ye Marriage sh'd be responsible in a 
pecuniary, or, if you please, on repeated Transgression, in a 
corpoi'al Penalty. If meer publication be made sufficient, it 
will amount to Nothing ; because it may be made (& is made in 
some congregations) in such a Manner as to be a meer Eva- 
sion. 

" 2dly. As to Persons who may not come within ye Rules of 
any religious Society, some Mode of Pul)lication sh'd be pro- 
vided for them. There is one indeetl, but it is thought insuffi- 
cient. 

" 3dly. The License sh'd be considered as a Dispensation 
from ye Notoriety of Publication ; And accordingly. Govern- 
ment sh'd assume ye Responsibility. The dispensing Officer 
should have a Reward proportioned to liis Trouble & Risque. 
He sh'd be liable to a Penalty according to ye Damage sus- 
tained, at ye Discretion of ye Court, within certain Limits. He 
sh'd, therefore, be ye Judge of ye Amount of ye Security to be 
required ; And if he take insufficient bondmen, it sh'd be at his 
Peril. The most material Difficulty that can occur in ye above 
Plan is ye discretionary power of ye Court. But I know no 
other Substitute for ye English Mode, which is ye taking of 
Oaths that there is no legal Impediment. 

" Your Excellency's desiring of me to state my Sentiments 
in writing has occasioned you ye Trouble of reading this long 
Letter. I am not tenacious of any Advice I have presumed to 
offer; But am fixed in my knowledge of ye Fact, & I hope ye 
Freedom of ye Citizen will justify my declaring it, that ye pres- 
ent Practice makes Government contribute to ye sacrificing of 
ve Peace, Honor & Fortunes of Families. "^ 

Two years later (Dec. 22, 1790) the Bishop, who was very

BISHOP WHITE ON MARRIAGE LICENSES. CXV 

much in earnest on this subject, returned to tlie attack in an- 
other letter to Gov. Mifflin : 

" In Compliance with your Excellency's Intimation, I am 
emboldened to lay before you brietly, the Substance of what I 
formerly delivered to you more at large, on the present State of 
Law and Practice, on ye Subject of Marriage. 

" The Objections which I had the Honor to state to you 
against ye Marriage License, were that it is a taking of Money 
out of ye people's pockets, without even ye Colour of Law, 
that it had been stigmatized on this Acct. l)y the Council of 
Censors ; and that to my certain Knowledge, it Prostitutes ye 
chief Magistrates Name & invades Domestic Rights, by the 
Sanction it gives to clandestine Marriages. 

" It is true, the Abuse is considerably lessened, by ve intire 
neglect which is shown the License, by ye greater Number of 
the Clergy of all Denominations; wiio depend on their own 
, Precaution against vvliat they think the Snares of ye govern- 
mental License. But I sub:nit to your Excellency whether it 
be not a great, Evil to leave Matters on this Footing. 

" It is now so well understood that no Man takes out a 
licence, but either thro' Ignorance or for a Cover to an illegal 
Transaction, that we may presume the Doing without them 
will more and more prevail. It must be obvious to every Man 
how much this subjects the Happiness of families to the sudden 
Determination of ver}' young people. Lender such a Dispensa- 
tion from all preparatory Measures, would it be surprising to 
hear, that a Girl of the Age at which Matrimony may be con- 
tractetl, were induced by a Toy or by a Sugar Plumb, to put 
an artful Man into ye possession of a Fortune ; out of which he 
would only ha^;c to pay £1^0 for ye Irregularity of ye Manner. 
Impositions may happen far short of this, yet very distressing 
to Families and ruinous to the Peace of ye parties. 

" So tar as ye Clergy in paiticular are concerned, it sub- 
jects ye conscientious to great Ditliculties ; It gives those of ye 
opposite Description unbounded License ; and it subjects to ye 
Determination of cither (and that in situations of great Deli- 
cacy) a Qiiestion involving Property and Character and Hap- 
piness. 



CXVl DECAY OF THE LICENSE SYSTEM. 

" In what Manner an evil of so great Magnitude is to be 
remedied, I presume not to say. But I will hint what I think 
ye great Outline of ye Business; viz. : That in Favor of these 
who either cannot, or who, from conscientious Scruples, will 
not pay for a License, there siiould be pointed out an unequiv- 
ocal Mode of Publication ; and that a License being a Dispen- 
sation from ye Notoriety of Publication, the Officers issuing it 
should be accountable and should receive a Fee proportioned 
to ye Trust and to ye Vigilance required in it."' 

Wm, White. 

decay of the license system. 

Bishop White's statements as to tiie prevalent disregard of 
the law recjuiring marriage licenses are significant. They are 
borne out by the marriage bonds on file in the office of the Sec- 
retary of State at Trenton. There are about 10,000 such 
bonds. Of 4S8, taken at random, S3 were given in the decade 
1751-60; 113 in the decade 1761-70; 107 in the years 1771- 
80, and only 38 in the next ten years, there being but two in 
1790. While this examination may be inadequate for accurate 
generalizations it sufficiently indicates the rapid decay of the 
system. It seems to have fiillen into disrepute directly after 
the Revolution. Perhaps it was regarded as a relic of royal 
privilege, pertaining to the Governors appointed by the crown, 
and so to be ignored with the passing of the royal authority. 
The Marriage Act of 1719 remained on the statute books, how- 
ever, until 1795, although a dead-letter for several years before 
its repeal. 

By an act passed December 16, 1784, in relation to the Or- 
dinary, etc., it was provided that his authority should extend, 
inter alia^ to the granting of marriage licenses.- The Govern- 
or was also the Ordinary under the new constitution, but this 
act was the first to define his powers in the latter capacity, as 
it was the first to engraft upon our system of jurisprudence a

THE MARRIAGE ACT OF 1795. 

William Paterson bavins^ been engaged liy the Legislature 
to revise the existing statutes and prepare new ones, a bill com- 
piled by him, entitled ''An Act concerning Marriages," was 
laid before the Legislative Council, November 7, 1794, taken 
up the following Monday (November 10), and ordered a sec- 
ond reading, and was again considered on November 13, 1^ 
and iS, most of the last-mentioned day being spent in discuss- 
ing it, after vvdiich it was ordered to be engrossed. It was 
passed on the 26th, and sent to the House of Assembly, whose 
concurrence was requested. As the Legislature was about to 
take its usual recess the l>ill went over until Februaiy iS, 1795, 
when 

'• Mr. Elmer from tlie committee to whom was referred the 
Bill entitled. An Act concerning Marriages, reported the same 
with sundry Amendments ; which Bill, with the Amendments, 
were read, and after some Time spent thereon 

"Ordered That the further Consideration thereof be post- 
poned. 

Feb. 24. — '' The House resumed the Consideration of the 
Bill, entitled " An Act concerning Marriages; and, after some 
Time spent thereon, 

"• Ordered, That the said Bill be re-committed to Messrs. 
Elmer, Peck and Clement." 

The next day Mr. Elmer, from the committee, reported 
the bill " with sundry amendments," which were agreed to, 
and the bill ordered to be read a third time. On the day fol- 
lowing the bill was passed, and sent up to the Council the same 
day, and their concurrence asked in the amendments. On the 
following Monday, March 2, the bill was taken up in the 
Council, read a second time, and ordered to be re-engrossed 
with the Assembly's amendments, and on Wednesday (March 
4, 1795) *^1"^ ^^''1 was finally passed.'

LATER LEGISLATION. CXXl 

fully and knowingly make a false entry, register and record of 
any return of marriages, so to him made, in the said book by 
him before directed to be kept; or if any clerk or keeper of 
the minutes, and proceedings of such religious societies, as are 
authorized to solemnize marriages by this act, shall wilfully 
and knowingly make a false entry, register and record of such 
marriages, or any of them, then every such person, so oflend- 
ing, shall be adjudged guilty of a misdemeanor, and, on con- 
viction, shall be punished by fine or imprisonment, or both, at 
the discretion of the court. 

"XII. The act entitled, "'An act to prevent clandestine 
marriages," passed the twenty- seventh day of March, in tlie 
year of our Lord, one thousand, seven hundred and nineteen, 
be, and the same is hereby repealed."' 

The several provisions in this act, requiring registers of 
marriages to be kept by tlie justices or ministers officiating, 
were taken from the English Marriage Act of 1754. The East 
Jersey Assembly had passed an act at the session begun at 
Elizabethtown, November 5, 1675, lequiring registers of mar- 
riages to be kept by the town clerks, and the Fundamental 
Constitutions of East New Jersey, 16S3, pi'ovided for a regis- 
ter in each county for births, marriages and burials. The 
West Jersey Assembly enacted, May 3-6, 16S2, that marriages 
should be registered in a public register, and by act of March, 
1682-3, required certificates of marriage to be entered in a reg- 
ister of the town and county, " where it is finished."'^ Thus, 
the sections in the act of 1795 providing for public registra- 
tion of marriages were re-enactments of laws which had exist- 
ed in New Jersey for more than a century. 

LATER LEGISLATION. 

The act of 1795 was drawn with such artificial skill, and so 
accurately reflected public sentiment, that it remained on the 
statute-books without change for exactly sixty-one years. Then 
a supplement was passed (approved March 4, 1S56), evidently 
to cover some particular case of recent occurrence. This legal-

CXXll LATER LEGISLATION. 

ized a marriage, acknowledged by any religious society in this 
state, where either of the parties had belonged to the society at 
the time of marriage, the same as if both parties were mem- 
bers thereof. 1 

Ten years later a second supplement was enacted (ap- 
proved April 4, 1S66), which in effect amended Sec. III. of 
the act of 1795? by adding this clause : 

" Should the person called upon to solemnize the marriage 
not be satisfied with the declarations of the parties desiring 
marriage, that they are of lawful age, he shall administer an 
oath or affirmation that they are of lawful age, of which oath 
or affirmation he shall make a certificate and file with the rec- 
ord of the marriage in the office of the clerk of the county, 
which certificate shall be his justification should said parties de- 
ceive him as to their age." The second section re-enacted Sec. 
V. of the former act.'- 

The next supplement to the act of 179=^ merelv "extended 
to and conferred on the mayor of every incorporated city, town 
or borough of this state," the powers conferred on justices of 
the peace by the second section of the original act, to solemnize 
marriages.-^ 

The Marriage Act of 1795, amended as above, was consol- 
idated with various other statutes, in " An act concerning mar- 
riages, births and deaths — Revision," approved March 27, 
1874, the essential features of the original act being retained, 
with but slight changes.^ 

A general revision of the marriage laws, entitled "An Act 
concerning marriages [Revision of 1903]," approved April 3, 
1903, embodied all the existing statutes on the subject, includ- 
ing a requirement for a marriage license to be issued by the 
county clerk, where both the parties are non-residents of New 
Jersey ; where the male applicant for a license is under twenty- 
one, or the female applicant is under eighteen, the consent of 
the parents or guardian of such minor is requisite to the issu- 
ing of the license.'^

LEGISLATIVE DIVORCES. CXXllI 

DIVORCES BY THE LEGISLATURE. 

For more than a century after the conquest of New Neth- 
erland by the Enghsh, divorces were granted in New Jersey — 
if granted at all — only by the Governor.' Otheivvise there 
lay an appeal to the ecclesiastical courts in England. In 1772 
there was a unique departure from this practice, when the 
Legislature passed an act entitled "An Act to dissolve the 
Marriage of David Baxter with Margaret his Wife late Mar- 
garet McMurtrie." There is nothing to explain why the 
Governor had not granted this divorce. Perhaps the evidence 
adduced before him satisfied him of the essential propriety of 
a divorce, but was legally insuificient. The bill originated 
in the House, was promptly concurred in by the Council, and 
received the assent of Governor Franklin on September 26, 
1772. But when it was laid l)efore the King in Council for the 
royal approbation it was promptly disallowed, September i, 
i773i 'Ti'l instructions were at the same time issued to all the 
Governors in North America to withhold their assent to any 
bills " for the divorce of Persons joined together in holy Mar- 
riage" — so shocked were the King and his advisers at this ex- 
traordinary departure from all precedents. "'- 

Although the so-called constitution of 1776 was silent on 
the subiect of divorce, it so far modified the powers of the 
Governor as to vest in him judicial powers only in his capac- 
ity as chancellor, as ordinary or surrogate-general, and as a 
member of the court of appeals, in the last resort, in all 
causes of law, as theretofore. This seemed to leave it optional 
with the Legislature to exercise the divorcing power,'' but that 
body was slow to act in that direction, and from 1776 to 17S0 
only three couples were divorced by legislative act. From 1781 

1 From a letter to nri^aclier Hunter, Governor of New Jersey and New York, 
bearing date March 2~. 1711. It may be inferred that the practice in divorce cases 
was by petition, of which notice was f4:iven to the defendant, and the matter re- 
ferred by the Governor to a mat?istrate of the vicinage to investigate, perhaps 
taking d<ipositions. See N. Y. Col. Docs.. V., :JI5. No records of the New Jer- 
.sey Court of Chancery prior to 17-J-l are known to e.xist. The published reports 
begin with the January Term. 1830.

3 The constitution of 1776 vested "the (joverntnent of the Province"' In the 
Governor, Legishitive Council, and General Assembly, the legislative depart- 
ment thereby appearing to be supreme.

to 1790 but two such acts were passed; during the next ten 
years there were eight; in iSoi-iSio there were only four, 
while in the ensuing decade the number jumped to twenty- 
five, increasing to forty-seven in 1S31-1S30, and to 109 in 1831- 
40, and in the next four years no less than sixty-two acts 
were passed by the Legislature, divorcing as many couples 
from the bonds of matrimony. In the nature of things there 
could be no judicial investigation into the reasons for the 
divorces asked for, and they were granted through the favor 
and influence of some member of the Legislature friendly to 
the petitioners. During the period from 177^ to 1844, v/hile 
this practice prevailed, there were two hundred and fifty-nine 
divorces granted in this way, one hundred and fifty-two of 
them being of women from their husbands, and one hundred 
and seven of men from their wives; figures which suggest that 
the " weaker sex" was either less patient with matrimonial 
woes, or had a greater proportion to bear than men ; or that 
they exercised more persuasive powers with the legislators. 
The abuses of the system were becoming so alarming that 
when the new constitution was framed, in 1844, there was em- 
bodied in it the provision, " No divorce shall be granted by 
the Legislature. "1 

DIVORCES BY THE COURT OF CHANCERY. 

Curiously enough, while the Legislature, from 177^ to 
1844, asserted its authority in the granting of divorces, it never- 
theless sanctionedthe judicial method, by an act passed De- 
cember 2, 1794, entitled "An Act concerning divorce and 
alimony." This was evidently one of Mr. Paterson's, and 
doubtless embodied in statute form the existing practice. It 
provided : ist, that the court of chancery should have jurisdic- 
tion of all causes of divorce by this act directed and allowed ; 
provided the parties were inhabitants of the state, zd, that the 
like process and course of practice and procedure should be 
had and pursued in causes of divorce, as in otiier equity 
causes, except that the answer of defendants should not be un- 
der oath. 3d, that divorces from the bond of matrimony should 

1 Art. IV., Sec. Vll.. PI. 1.

be decreed in case the [)arties were vvitliin the degrees jirohih- 
ited by law ; in case of adultery in either of the parties, and 
also for wilful, continued and obstinate desertion, for the term 
of seven years.' 4th, divorces fiom the bond of matrimony 
w^ere also authorized vvliere either of the parties hatl another 
wife or husl^and living at tiie time of such second or other mar- 
riage. Divorce from bed ami l)oard was authori/eil for ex- 
treme cruelty in either of the parties.'- By a supplement, 
passed Alarch 4, 179S1 provision was made for service on an 
absent defendant, l)v publication.-^ The law was revised, Feb. 
3, 1S18, the jurisdiction being extended to causes where the 
parties arc or shouUl be inhabitants of this State at the time of 
the injury, desertion or neglect complained of, or "where the 
marriage sliall have been solemnized or taken place within this 
State, and the complainant shall have been an actual resident 
in this State, at tlie time of the injury, deseition or neglect 
coniplainetl of; and at the time of exhibiting the bill." The 
other provisions were much the same as the act of i794i 
which act, and the supplement of Marcli 3, 179S1 were re- 
pealed.' Another revision was passed Fel)ruary 16, 1820, 
which amended the tlrst section by provuling tliat the com- 
plainant siiould annex an oath to tlie bill of complaint that the 
complaint was not made by any collusion between the par- 
ties.'"' By an act passed Dec. 13, 1824, it was provitled that 
suits in tile court of chancery, for divorce, might be l)y petition, 
instead of by bill, and the practice in that method was pre- 
scribed.'' An act passed Fel)ruary 22, iS.|3, amended the 
first section of the act of 1820 by adding the requirement that 
where a divorce was prayed for on the ground of desertion, 
"tlie complainant or defendant shall have been a resident of 
this State for the term of five years, during which such deser- 
tion shall have continued."^ By a supplement, approved Feb- 

1 Keduccd, by acl passed February 2~. IHI3 (P. F^. 1843, p. IS), to five years; by 
act approved March '20, IS57 (P. L. 18.")7, p. 'M)). to three years; a,nd by acts ap- 
proved March 7, 18Wt (P. L. 188'.», p, IS), and Marcli 5. IStlO (P. Ij. IHilO, p. 'Si), to two 
years.

ruary 21, 1S71, the court was authorized to make and enforce or- 
ders in regard to the care, custody, education and maintenance 
of infant cliildren of parents bringing suit for divorce, and where 
they are divorced.' The Revision, approved March 27, 1S74, 
provided (Sec. 4) that divorces might be decreed in cases of 
physical and incurable impotency at the time of marriage, 
"such marriages to be invalid from the beginning and abso- 
lutely void."- By an act approved May 11, 1886, it was pro- 
vided that the court should have ''jurisdiction of all cases of 
divorce in case of adultery committed out of this state, where 
the complainant or defendant was or shall have been a resi- 
dent of this state for three years next preceding the time when 
said bill was or shall hereafter be filed. "^ An amendment, ap- 
proved March 7? 1889, gave the court jurisdiction of all causes 
of divorce and of alimony and maintenance, where either of 
the parties should be resident of this state at the time of the 
injury, desertion or neglect complained of, or where the mar- 
riage shall liave been solemnized in this state, and the com- 
plainant shall have been an actual resident in the state at the 
time of the injury, desertion or neglect complained of and at 
the time of exhibiting the bill ; or where the adultery w^as com- 
mitted in this state, and either of the parties reside in this state 
at the time of exhibiting the bill ; or where either of the par- 
ties shall be a resident of this state at the time of filing the bill 
of complaint, and either party shall have been a resident of 
this state for the term of two years, during which such deser- 
tion shall have continued.^ 

The several statutes on the subject in 1902 were revised 
and consolidated into one, entitled "An Act providing for di- 
vorces and for decrees of nullity of marriage and for alimony 
and the maintenance of children [Revision of 1902]."''
