The Form of Solemnization of MATRIMONY

First the Banns of all that are be married together, must be published in the Church three several Sundays or Holy-days, in the time of Divine Service, immediately before the sentences for the Offertory; the Curate saying after the accustomed manner,

TA mee fockley magh Sumney Poosee eddyr M. jeh--- as N. jeh---. My ta fys ec veg [413] jiuish er ayr erbee lowal dy lhiettal yn daa phersoon shoh dy gholl cooidjagh ayns Poosey casherick, ta shiu dy hoilshaghey eh: Shoh'n chied (yn nah ny'n trass) Sumney.

And if the persons that are to be married, dwell in divers Parishes, the Banns must be asked in both Parishes; and the Curate of the one Parish shall not solemnize Matrimony betwixt them, without a certificate of the Banns being thrice asked from the Curate of the other Parish.

At the day and time appointed for solemnization of Matrimony, the persons to be married shall come into the body of the Church, with their friends and neighbours: and there standing together, the Man on the right hand, and the Woman on the left, the Priest shall say:

CHAARJYN ghraihagh, ta shin er nyn jaglym cooidjagh ayns shoh ayns fenish Yee, as kiongoyrt rish y cheshaght shoh, dy choyrt cooidjagh yn dooinney as y ven shoh ayns Poosey casherick ; ta stayd onnoroil, er ny oardaghey liorish Jee roish my huitt dooinney ayns peccah, cowraghey dooinyn yn unnaneys spyrrydoil ta eddyr Creest as e Agglish : yn stayd casherick cheddin ren Creest y hoiaghey magh as y choamrey lesh aalid e heshaght hene, as y chied virril dobbree eh ayns Cana dy Ghalilee; as ta er ny voylley liorish y fa Noo Paul dy ve onnoroil mastey dy chooilley ghooinney: as shen-y-fa, cha vel eh liorish feallagh erbee dy ve goit ayns laue dy mee-choyrlagh, dy eddrym, ny [414] dy rouanagh, dy chooilleeney yeearreeyn as saylltyn foalley deiney, myr maase y vagher ta gyn tushtey: agh dy arryrnagh, tushtagh, lesh cooyrie, dy sheelt, as ayns aggle Yee; dy cooie smooinaghtyn er ny oyryn, cre'n-fa va Poosey er ny oardaghey.

And also speaking unto the persons that shall be married, he shall say:

TA mish dy harey as cur currym erriu ny-neesht, (myr nee shiu gansoor eh ec laa aglagh ny briwnys, tra vees follaight dy chooilley chree er ny hoilshaghey) my ta fys eu hene [415] er oyr erbee, cre'n-fa nagh bee shiu dy lowal er nyn goyrt cooidjagh ayns Poosey, dy jean shiu nish goaill-rish. Son bee-jee feer shickyr jeh, whilleen as t'er nyn goyrt cooidjagh er aght nagh vel Goo Yee lowal, cha vel ad er nyn goyrt cooidjagh liorish Jee, chamoo ta'n Poosey oc lowal.

At which day of marriage, if any man do allege and declare any impediment why they may not be coupled together in Matrimony by God's Law, or the laws of this realm; and will be bound, and sufficient sureties with him, to the parties; or else put in a caution (to the full value of such charges as the persons to be married do thereby sustain) to prove his allegation: then the solemnization must be deferred until such time as the truth be tried.
If no impediment be alleged, then shall the Curate say unto the Man,

M. NAILTS y ven shoh son dty ven phoost, dy veaghey cooidjagh lurg oardagh Yee ayns y stayd chasherick dy Phoosey? Der oo graih jee, ec y gherjaghey, der oo onnor jee, as ee y reayll ayns chingys as ayns slaynt; as treigeil dy chooilley unnane elley, oo hene y reayll jeeish ny lomarcan, choud as vees shiu ny neesht bio?

The Man shall answer,


Then shall the Priest say unto the Woman,

Der oo biallys [416] da, eh y hirveish, der oo graih da, der oo onnor da, as eh y reatyll ayns chingys ayns slaynt; as treigeil dy chooilley er elley, oo hene y reayll dasyn ny lomarcan, choud as vees shiu ny neesht bio ?

The Woman shall answer.


Then shall the Minister say,

Quoi ta coyrt y ven shoh dy ve poost rish y dooinney shoh?

Then shall they give their troth to each other in this manner:
The Minister receiving the Woman at her Father's or Friend's Hands shall cause the Man with his right hand, to take the Woman by her right hand, and to say after him as followeth :

TA mish M. dy ghoaill uss N. son my ven phoost, dy ve aym as dy chummal veih'n laa shoh mash, son ny share, son ny s'messey son ny s'berchee, son ny s'boghtey, ayns chingys as ayns slaynt, dy chur graih dhyt as dy dty gherjaghey, derrey ver y baase shin veih-my-cheilley, cordail rish oardagh casherick Yee; as gys shoh ta mee coyrt dhyt my vreearrey.

Then shall they loose their hands ; and the Woman with her right hand taking the Man by his right hand, shall likewise say after the Minister,

TA mish N. dy ghoaill uss M. son my ghooinney poost, dy ve aym as dy chummal veih'n laa shoh magh, son ny share, son ny [417] smessey, son ny s'berchee, son ny s'boghtey, ayns chingys as ayns slaynt, dy chur graih dhyt, dy dty gherjaghey, as dy chur biallys dhyt, derrey ver y baase shin veih-my-cheilley, cordail rish oardagh casherick Yee; as gys shoh ta mee coyrt dhyt my vreearrey.

Then shall they again loose their hands; and the Man shall give unto the Woman a Ring, laying the same upon the Book with the accustomed duty to the Priest and Clerk. And the Priest taking the Ring, shall deliver it unto the Man, to put it upon the fourth finger of the Woman's left hand. And the Man, holding the Ring there, and taught by the Priest, shall say,

LESH yn Ainey shoh ta mee dy dty phoosey, lesh my chorp ta mee jannoo dhyt onnor, as lesh ooilley my chooid seihlt ta mee dy dty choamrey: Ayns Ennym yn Ayr, as y Vac, as y Spyrryd Noo. Amen.

Then the Man leaving the Ring upon the fourth finger of the Woman's left hand, they shall both kneel down, and the Minister shall say,

Lhig dooin Padjer y ghoaill.
O YEE dy bragh beayn, Fer-croo as Fer-coadee ooilley sheelnaue, ta coyrt dy chooilley ghrayse spyrrydoil, bun y vea dy bragh farraghtyn ; Cur dty vannaght orroo shoh dty harvaantyn, yn dooinney as y ven shoh, ta shin dy vannaghey ayns dty Ennym: 'naght myr ren Isaac as Rebeeca beaghey dy firrinagh cooidjagh, myr shen dy vod ny persoonyn shoh dy shickyr cooilleeney as freayll yn breearrey as y conaant ta jeant eddyr ad, (jeh ta'n fainey shoh t'er ny choyrt [418] as er ny ghoaill cowrey as gioal;) as dy vod ad dy bragh tannaghtyn ayns graih firrinagh as shee cooidjagh, as beaghey cordail rish dty leighyn, trooid Yeesey Creest nyn Jiarn. Amen.

Then shall the Priest join their right hands together and say,

Adsyn ta Jee er choyrt cooidjagh, ny lhig da dooinney erbee 'chur veih-my-cheilley.

Then shall the Minister speak unto the People.

SON wheesh as dy vel M. as N. er choyrt nyn aigney dy cheilley ayns poosey casherick, as er hoilshaghey shoh fenish Yee as y cheshaght shoh, as gys shen er choyrt as er n'ghialtaghey nyn mreearrey yn derrey yeh da'n jeh elley, as er hoilshaghey shoh liorish coyrt as goaill Fainey, as liorish goaill laueyn y cheilley; Ta mish fockley magh dy nee dooinney as ben phoost ad cooidjagh, Ayns Ennym yn Ayr, as y Vac, as y Spyrryd Noo. Amen.

And the Minister shalI add this Blessing:

Amen. [419]

Then the Minister or Clerks going to the Lord's Table shall say or sing this Psalm following.
