References to the parish of Inveresk, Midlothian in the marriage register of the parish of Canongate, 1564-1800

[Source: The register of marriages for the parish of Holyroodhouse or Canongate, 1564-1800]

The marriage register is blank Aug 1567 - May 1600; Aug 1631 - Oct 1645; Jul 1675 - Nov 1685. Also, there were no marriages performed Aug 1650 - Jun 1651.

The date given is most likely the date of booking, prior to proclamation
pro. = date of proclamation of banns
m. = actual date of the marriage
d. = daughter; p. = par. = parish; pro. = proclaimed

Each marriage is listed twice, in alphabetical order of the parties in column 1; spelling is not consistent between the 2 entries for any given marriage. The spelling in column 1 has been, in part, modernised.

Note, between April 1798 and Feb. 1799, the marriages of 6 soldiers of the Shropshire Militia, stationed at Edinburgh Castle.
