The ML at the end of the Marriage Index entry indicates that the marriage was conducted according to the rights of the Church of England at Alnwick, Butterwick, Clarence Town, Middlehope, Raymond Terrace or Seaham.

Text:

The Austin-McQuire web site has their marriage year as 1846 yet the NSW Marriage Index shows 1848. It might just be a typograpical error on the web site.

The ML at the end of the index entry indicates a marriage according to the rights of the Church of England at Alnwick, Butterwick, Clarence Town, Middlehope, Raymond Terrace or Seaham. Note this does not include Morpeth.

Note: Kevin Matthews also has the year of marriage as 1846.
