It’s unusual for Ancestry to post a new collection with only 466 records. But this Hampshire parish marriage record collection only appears to be indexed for the parish of Winchester St Peter Chesil.
Browsable marriage records are available for many more Hampshire parishes, sourced from Hampshire Archives and Local Studies, but not advertised. How long will it be before these others are indexed?
In the meantime, Findmypast has over 348,565 transcript marriage records, with a few images, from the Hampshire Genealogical Society. In addition, FamilySearch has over 2 million parish register entries and Bishop’s transcripts for BMBs of all types, with transcriptions for registered readers and images viewable at FSCs and affiliate libraries.

This is indeed excellent news as the patchwork of shire records begin to connect and helps with the strays. My wife and I have Hampshire heritage. Now when I go to the archive I can now concentrate on other parish records to help build the story.
The Ancestry card catalogue now says that there are 794,719 records in the Hampshire marriages database.
