PREFACE. 



The Abbey of Holyrood was founded by King David I. in 1128 
on the site of a still more ancient and probably Celtic Church, the 
foundations of which have recently been laid bare during the excava- 
tions made by H.M. Office of Works. The Canons regular, who 
were of the Order of St. Augustine, took up residence there on the 
completion of the building about 1 176. The Abbey was destroyed 
by the English under the Earl of Hertford in 1543-4, and again 
after Pinkie in 1547, nothing but the nave being left. In 1687, 
the congregation of the Canongate was removed from the Church 
by order of James VII. that it might become a Chapel for the 
Order of the Thistle, then established or re-constituted. The 
parishioners were accommodated in a new church built in the 
Canongate in 1688, which thereafter became the parish church. In 
1768 the roof of the Abbey, which had been repaired in 1758 by 
being covered with stone, fell in, and the chapel became the ruin it 
has since remained. 

The Register of Marriages preserved in the Lord Clerk Register's 
Department is contained in eleven volumes embracing the following 
periods : — 

I. 20th August 1564 to 16th August 1567 ; II. 30th May 1600 
to 2nd August 163 1 ; III. 21st October 1645 to 1690; IV. 
August 1687 to 1719 ; V. 23rd June 1719 to 1790 ; VI. 1790 
to 1804; VII. 1804 to 1811 ; VIII. 181 1 to 1817; IX. 1817 
to 1819 ; X. 1820 to 1832 ; XI. 1833 to 1854. 

The Register is blank from August 1567 to May 1600, from 
August 163 1 to October 1645, and from July 1675 to November 
1685, also "there was no pairties married within the Kirk of 
Holyroodhouse from 23rd August 1650 till the 26th June 165 1 by 
reasoun of the Inglish armie in and about the town." 

By an unfortunate oversight the second volume, 1600-163 1, was 



iv Preface. 

omitted to be transcribed along with the others, and the entries 
therein will be found in an Appendix. 

On the 21st July 1565 occurs this entry, "The quhilk day

Soverane of this realme, on the uthair part. The quhilk the Kirk
