the clerk of the jurisdiction. Males under 21 and females under 18 had to have parental permission. If permission was denied, the clerk had to be
notified so he did not issue a license. The clerk had to keep marriage records and make an annual report of the same. There were fines for ignoring
the law. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the Massachusetts State Library).
