Civil mar­riage cer­tifi­cates in the UK

and Ire­land should iden­tify the church in which

a cou­ple mar­ried and thus their re­li­gion. How­ever, in­ter­mar­riage be­tween dif­fer­ent faiths

was not un­com­mon. The re­li­gion of Ul­ster

fam­i­lies may be seen through the ori­gins of

a sur­name. Scot­tish fam­i­lies were most likely Pres­by­te­rian, while sur­names of Ir­ish ori­gin may point

to a Ro­man Catholic fam­ily.
