|County Armagh Marriage Licence Bonds 1727-1845 (Part 1 of 2 - or almost 10,000 records)|
|During the 17th and 18th centuries, when it was illegal for "dissenting" Clergy to perform marriages, some Roman Catholic and Presbyterians chose to be married in the Church of Ireland (Anglican Church). To do so they would ask the Minister to publish banns or purchase a licence from the Bishop of the Diocese. Before the licence was granted the couple had to enter a bond at a Diocesan Court. These bonds included the names of the bride and groom and their ages and place of residence. Unfortunately most of the bonds and licences were destroyed in the Public Record Office, Dublin, in 1922, but indexes for many of them have survived. These indexes contain the names of the bridegroom and bride and the year of the bond.|
|Confirmation is a church practice that falls into the category of what the Anglican Catechism calls "rites and institutions commonly called sacraments." While many Protestants shy away from calling Confirmation a sacrament in the strict sense, the witness of the church throughout the ages, especially in the Anglican wing, has seen fit to uphold them as a vital means through which God mediates grace to us. Confirmation arose out of the early church's reflection on Scripture in connection to how one became a Christian. It was first used to describe what happened when a bishop would lay hands upon, pray for, and anoint the forehead of the newly baptized with oil, signifying the gift of the Holy Spirit. The newly baptized/confirmed would then proceed to receive their first Eucharist. Gradually, in the western churches (Eastern Orthodox churches still confirm infants immediately upon Baptism), Confirmation became separable from Baptism. For Anglican churches, the normal course would be that you were baptized as an infant, and then as a teenager undergo a lengthy instruction (catechesis), which prepared you for Confirmation. Again, Confirmation was necessary before receiving Communion. Confirmation was also unique in that, while a priest could baptize, Confirmation was usually reserved for the bishop. Confirmation is a special church service in which a person confirms the promises that were made when they were baptized. If you were baptized at a christening when you were a child, your parents and godparents made these promises on your behalf. As a young person or adult, you may be ready to affirm these promises for yourself and commit your life to following Jesus Christ. At a confirmation service, you make these promises for yourself. Your friends and family as well as the local Christian community will be there to promise to support and pray for you. As a general rule, anyone who is over 10 years old and can answer for themselves could be ready for confirmation, but the right time for you might be at any age - you could be in your teens or in your nineties! These records in Ireland generally commence in the 1800's.|
