An act of Parliament confirming the validity of 'Marriages amongst the People called Quakers and amongst Persons professing the Jewish Religion'.

The statute was drafted in response to the notorious 1844 case of R vs. Millis, in which the House of Lords held that all marriages conducted without the presence of a member of clergy in holy orders were invalid in English common law. The effect was to throw doubt on the legitimacy of the marriages of all Jews and Quakers. William Christie (1816-874), the Liberal MP for Weymouth, brought in a motion to dispel these concerns which was duly codified into law as 10 & 11 Vic. c.58.

Folio (30 x 19 cm); woodcut royal coat of arms, single leaf; a few small tears to upper margin not affecting text, unbound.
