Cathedral Sacrists' Records: introduction

The sacrist had the cure of souls within the cathedral precinct, and was usually a minor canon. He was responsible for keeping the registers of baptism, marriage and burial. No marriages were solemnised in the cathedral between 1754-1866 because under the Act of 1753 the cathedral was deemed to be extra-parochial. Persons living in the precinct of the cathedral were therefore married in the nearest church to the cathedral, either St. Nicholas or St. Margaret, Rochester.
