Whereas His Majesty has been graciously pleased by Letters
Patent under the Great Seal of Great Britain to authorise me to grant Licences
for the solemnization of Marriage, and whereas Daniel
, Batchelor and Charlotte
, Spinster
are determined to enter intó the Holy Banns of Matrimony, and are desirous of having
their Marriage publicly solemnized ; in order that such their honest desires may
the more speedily have their due effect, and that they may be able to procure the
same to be lawfully solemnized without publication of Banns, I do hereby for good
causes, give and grant this Licence or Faculty, as well to them the said parties contracting,
as to all ot every Person or Minister, duly ordained, and lawfully exercising
his Ministry within the said Province of Upper Canada, to solemnize and perform
the same; provided always that by reason of any affinity, consanguinity, precontract
or any other lawful cause, there be no legal impediment in this behalf, otherwise,
if any fraud shall appear to have been committed at the time of granting this Licence
either by false suggestions or concealment of the truth, that then this Licence shall
be null and void to all intents and purposes whotsoever.
