How to locate original marriage record at St. Dunstan's Canterbury Kent?

+2 votes
John Vintin, a prisoner, and Anne Moore were married 20 Jul 1646, at St Dunstan, Canterbury, Kent.[Src: Dunstan Parish (Canterbury, Kent) and Cowper, J. Meadows. ''The register booke of christeninges, mariages and burialls in St. Dunstan's Canterbury, 1559-1800.'' (Canterbury : Cross & Jackman, 1887) ]

I would like to access the original record, because occupation prisoner makes no sense, whatsoever. I am actually willing to pay reasonable fees to get a copy.

Can anyone help?

Try findmypast. He is transcribed as John Vincin.

The problem with the Find my past entry is that it indicates it is a transcription. I want to see the original.
Thanks Linda, I'll go pay for a month
You will probably find the subscription useful for other purposes, but if that is all you need then wait for another time. The image gives no other information than the two names, date and that he is a prisoner.

On the same page, a couple who were either to be married or committed to prison, and a couple married out of Bridewell (a Bridewell being a law-court holding pen).

Bearing in mind that the Puritans had taken over, I get the feeling they were locking people up for unPuritan behaviour and letting them out if they got married.

Thanks RJ. How bizarre.
