STORY OF BISHOP WEARMOUTH.
DISPERSION OF THE STOREYS AND OTHERS OF THAT ILK.

I think previous to William IV. marriages to be legal from a civil point of view had to be performed in the church of the parish, but as the Catholics consider marriage a sacrament, no doubt there would be another service according to the rites of the Catholic Church in their own church.
The Registers of the Thropton Catholic Mission begin in 1700. The Registers, &c., were sent to the Commission in 1840.
