Excerpt from Encyclop?dia of the Laws of England, Vol. 2: Being a New Abridgment by the Most Eminent Legal AuthoritiesThe rubrics which alone have statutory force are those in the "book annexed" to the Caroline Act of Uniformity. In the marriage service, the direction is "in the time of divine service, immediately before the sentences for the offertory." In the communion office, "banns of matrimony" are directed to be published with other notices next after the Nicene Creed, but before the sermon, which forms no integral part of the communion office (In re Robinson [1897], 1 Ch. 85). The Oxford University Press, about 1809, altered both these directions to the form in which they now appear in modern prayer-books. This was done without authority, but with a view of bringing the rubric into supposed agreement with the then existing statutory provision (26 Geo. II. c. 33, s. 1). The opinion of Alderson, B., expressed obiter at Nisi Prius in R. v. Benson, Oxford Summer Assizes, 1856, was that the proper time of "morning service" is still in the communion office (see Phillimore, Eccl. Law, 2nd ed., i. 588). This construction has the advantage of reconciling the rubric and the statute. The object of publication being to give notice, it is reasonable to make it in the middle of the principal service of the day, when the greatest number of people will presumably he present.Sec. 7. No clergyman is obliged to publish banns without seven days notice in writing. See Nicholson v. Squire, 1809, 16 Ves. 259, as to the responsibility a clergyman may incur by not requiring notice.Sec. 6. The churchwardens shall provide a proper register book of the banns, and the banns shall be published therefrom, and not from loose papers.Where the parties dwell in divers parishes, the curate (i.e. incumbent) of one parish shall not solemnise matrimony betwixt them without certificate of the banns being thrice asked from the curate of the other parish (Rubrio). For a common form of this certificate, see Blunt's Booh of Church Law, p. 130.Sec. 9. Banns are only in force three months after the last publication.It is conceived that it is open to any person present in church, acting in good faith, to declare, in response to the invitation, any fact which such person bond fide believes, and has reasonable ground for believing, to be cause or just (i.e. lawful) impediment why the parties should not be joined together in holy matrimony. The incumbent should inquire into the validity of any objection taken, and, if in doubt, apply to his bishop for directions before proceeding with the publication or solemnisation. By see. 8, in the case of minors, a parent or guardian, declaring dissent to the marriage at the time of publication of banns, renders such publication void.Publication of banns should be by the names (both prename and surname) by which the parties are generally known (Wyatt v. Henry, 1817,2 Hag. Con. 215). But see Fendall v. Goldsmid, 1877, L. R. 2 P. D. 263, as to the true legal surname being sufficient, unless actually superseded by reputation.It has never been decided in terms that an incumbent is punishable for refusing to publish banns. But it would seem that for not publishing, after due notice, the banns of a baptized and confirmed parishioner, he would be liable to ecclesiastical proceedings under the Church Discipline Act, 1840, 3 & 4 Viet. c. 86, though probably not to a criminal indictment for misdemeanour either at common law or under the Marriage Act (see R. v. James, 1850, 3 Car. & K. 167, 172).About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
