Lancaster County, Virginia, Marriage Bonds, 1652 - 1850
Lancaster County, Virginia, Marriage Bonds, 1652-1850. Ida J. Lee. (1965).
A wealth of genealogical information is contained in this modest volume. Altogether about 4,000 prospective brides and grooms are listed with dates and, sometimes, names of parents. For the convenience of the researcher the marriages are recorded in one alphabetical sequence by the surname of the groom. Additional important genealogical information such as the statement of widowhood and the place of residence is supplied if the information appeared in the original marriage bond.
Lancaster County was formed from the parent counties of Northumberland and York in 1651. It was itself the parent of old Rappahannock County (formed in 1656) and Middlesex County (formed in 1673). Clearly, then, this work documents marriages from an important area and one larger than might at first be supposed.
