About the Author

Rebecca Probert is widely recognised as the leading authority on the history of the marriage laws of England and Wales, a subject on which she has written extensively. Currently Professor of Law at the University of Warwick, she read law at St Anne’s College, Oxford, took her LLM at University College, London, worked as a researcher at the Law Commission, and has lectured in family law since 1997. She has spent many years deeply engrossed in the large-scale genealogical case-studies which underpin the conclusions of her academic work and of this book. Her many TV and radio appearances include the BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are?, Heirhunters and Harlots, Heroines & Housewives.

I am not a genealogist. I am an amateur researcher into marriage law in the 18th and early 19th century in England.Ms. Probert presents her material in a way that even a non academic and non professional genealogist can understand it. Her examples are clear . This small book is worth three or four others I have on my shelf. So much information in one place makes this book an essential addition to any library of those interested in the marriage laws of England. I do think it a definitive guide on the subject.

Every Genealogist should read this book. It takes you past the marriage myth's into the realities of different times. It will keep you from making decisions based on untruths in your family trees.

It's just what it says it is. Not everything is the way you intuitively think it is. This book explains it all.

This guide was very helpful as I did research on "The Ancestors, Siblings, and Descendants of Joshua Bowers (1830-1916) and Mary Ann (Tillotson) Bowers (1834-1919)".
