These are transcribed from the the 1911 official transcription (Still to be checked against the original Register); these entries, in conformance to a recent Act of Tynwald, provide more information - they give the parish of both parties, whether by banns (apparently very unusual - possibly they were chosen by the very poor to avoid the cost of a licence) or licence, the signatures or marks of both parties, and two witnesses.
Marriage partners and witnesses were required to sign the register - A few witnesses also signed with a mark. The choice of witnesses is also interesting, in many parishes the parish clerk was a common signatory but not it seems in Jurby until late 18th Century - Andrew Joughin [aj]
