Description

The Kindred & Affinity Table provides a handy reference guide to the relatives who may not be joined in marriage by the Church of England. In small communities and in times of limited travel, there were frequently liaisons between members of a wider family and this publicly-displayed list provided a reminder, to those who could read, of what would and would not be sanctioned. Scanned from the photographer's original negative. Most of these images were taken before he started producing postcards, and before he saved his images on glass plates.
