The Isle of Wight Family History Society has created this index from transcriptions made by volunteers from copies of the Banns recorded in the Parish Registers of All Saints' Church, Freshwater - the only such Banns recorded by us.

So, if you cannot find the banns recorded for a marriage as you might expect to, please consider this as a possible reason.

The majority of surviving original Registers are held by the County Record Office in Newport, Isle of Wight. To see a list of their holdings see Parish Records and Registers.
