The custom of marrying in the time of the Commonwealth was, first to publish the banns in the market-place, then to solemnize the marriage before the Mayor or bailiffs of coroporations or justices of the peace. During this period Whiteman appears to have been a registrar of marriages, for in the register of Framlingham we find that "Alin Davison," one of the "bailies of Dunwich" and "witnes John Whiteman, regester there," performed the office upon an inhabitant of Framlingham and one of Farnham, who were married at Dunwich in 1656.
