      I've seen many hundreds of Jewish marriage records from the 1800s, and very often the sextons of the synagogue show up over and over again as marriage witnesses. I got the impression this must have been part of their expected duties, to witness marriages when asked and to make the trip to the registrar's office that day or the next to record the marriage.
