Ansty was a royal free chapel and the only parish in the county with no ecclesiastical jurisdiction.  Copies of registers were not required to be sent to the Bishop (Bishops Transcripts).  Couples could marry here regardless of Banns or License.  It also married couples when periods of canon law prohibited marriage.
