This question came up on a different thread. So I went to see if I could find out who you could marry legally

In the United Kingdom, certain marriages between close family or blood relatives are prohibited.

For Men For Women

Blood Relatives

Mother Father
Daughter Son
Father's mother Father's father
Mother's mother Mother's father
Son's daughter Son's son
Daughters daughter Daughter's son
Sister Brother
Father's sister Father's brother
Mother's sister Mother's brother
Brother's daughter Brothers son
Sister's daughter Sister's son

Others

Adoptive mother or former Adoptive father or former
adoptive mother adoptive father
Adoptive daughter or former Adoptive son or former
adoptive daughter adoptive son
Wife's mother Husband's father
Wife's daughter Husband's son
Father's wife Mothers husband
Son's wife Daughter's husband
Father's father's wife father's mother's husband
Mother's father's wife Mother's mother's husband
Wife' father's mother Husband's father's father
Wife's mother's mother Husband's mother's father
Wife's son's daughter Husband's son's son
Wife's daughter's daughter Husband's daughter's son
Son's son's wife Son's daughter's husband
Daughter's son's wife Daughter's daughter's husband

"Brother" and "Sister" include half-brothers and half-sisters. If in doubt consult the minister or superintendent Registrar.

Relations who can marry
The Marriage Act of 1986 allows certain relatives to marry. Marriages under the Act may only take place in a civil ceremony under licence, not in church by banns.

Step Relatives
Both partners to the marriage are at least 21 years old at the time of the marriage and the younger partner must not at any time up to the age of 18 years old lived in same household as the older partner.

Relatives-in-law
Relatives-in-law may marry providing both partners are over 21 years old at the time of the marriage and the former spouses (in either or both the cases must be deceased)

For Men For Women

Daughter of former wife Son of former husband
Former wife of father Former husband of mother
Former wife of father's father Former husband of father's mother
Former wife of mother's father Former husband of mother's mother
Daughter of son of former wife Son of son of former husband
Daughter of daughter of former wife Son of daughter of former husband


So wife's daughter is included Hodgepodge!!

The site I found it is -

That would have been something for our skeleton in the cupboard night.

Is there a date for this information? I know that in my Prayer Book that I had (in the mid-1950's) there was a list at the back which 'the Church' did not recognise and I think this could make a difference (it didn't seem as long as the one you quote above? I'll try and find the list I had - if I can find the Prayer Book?

SeaCop - I have written this out in full on the other thread, exactly as it is listed in the Church of England Prayer Book

There is a page of those prohibited to marry by Consanguinity or Affinity at
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/%7Eframland/acts/affinity.htm
It could shed some light.
