South Australian Marriage Records

1836 to 1857

surname * given name

Enter either the husband's name or wife's maiden name or former married name into the boxes.
One given name or 1st initial is optional.


The major sources of these early records were church marriage registers and the index to South Australian marriage certificates. Newspapers of the day supplied additional records.
Weddings before civil registration commenced (mid 1842) and others recorded in church marriage registers but not submitted to the Registrar of Births, Deaths & Marriages are included. Also, the maiden names of previously married women have often been determined.
