Norwich Consistory Court Suffolk Marriages.

Not sure if links to FindMyPast are allowed but under the Britain, Marriage Licenses, the NCC Marriage licenses and bonds are indexed with links to the original image. It has many, many Suffolk people, so can be handy if they applied at the NCC, as often relatives were bondsmen etc.

For example my Suffolk ancestor wed in 1756 by NCC licence and the marriage licence bond gave her mother's name, and named a same surname relative of the groom, I think his brother, as his dad had died by 1756.

As Suffolk was in the Diocese of Norwich in Norfolk, many Suffolk people who wanted to marry by licence applied for a Norfolk courts licence. This database can be handy for tracing Suffolk ancestors who married by licence from a Norfolk court.
