    The following is an extract from a transcript of a Sussex Marriage Licence, can anyone interpret the abbreviation for me?

    SRS 32 ss:W.S;Wm.B;of Amberley husbandman

    Thank you kindly, the disc has a clicky link to abbreviations which takes me straight to Windows help and is nothing to do with the CD.

    SRS:

    Sometimes in the Sussex Marriage Index you see the abbreviation "SRS" as extra information against a license. It means the source for the index entry was one of the society's publications.

    Thanks DB I think the 32 refers to his age no idea about the rest though. On one other licence they had wcof which is deduced meant with the consent of father.

    Perhaps the 32 is the volume number, ss could be subsection. the W.S. 'West Sussex' ? SRS as Jan said-Sussex Record Society.
