Strays from Headington: Marriages

Listed below are some Headington people who were married in churches outside Headington. This list is very incomplete: please email the Webmaster if you have anyone to add.

Note: It was the normal practice for a man to get married in the parish of origin of his wife, so Headington men are only listed below if they were married in a church that was neither in Headington nor in their wife’s parish.
