Ann Frith and John Robinson - 1711

I'm transcribing some marriage records and came across this. Maybe someone here can find it useful.

Groom: John ROBINSON of Lowton, Cheshire Parish (England)
Bride: Ann FRITH of Newton, Cheshire Parish
Date of Marriage: 10 OCT 1711
Marriage by License or Banns: BANNS

NOTE: I read this (below) at RootsWeb forum:
License is granted by the state (gov't)
Banns is the list of marriage applicants which is posted by the church (nailed on the door?) to announce those who intend to be married, giving people a chance to report any reasons why they should not marry or are not elegible.

The publishing of the banns is what led to the line in the wedding service "If there is anyone who knows of any reason why this couple should not be united in marriage, let them now speak or forever hold their piece."
