    • Irregular marriage:
      A marriage by declaration was perfectly legal in terms of Scots Law until 1939 [but] it wasn't at all "legal" in terms of the canonical "laws" of the Established Church of Scotland. ..... A proportion of those who underwent a marriage by declaration did so in the presence of a minister of a secession church, or a minister who had at that time no "charge", ie wasn't the minister of any church. .... It could have equally been the case that the minister involved here, unnamed, was a secession church minister, but the couple still wanted the marriage recorded in the Old Parochial Register ... of the Established Church of Scotland.
