Marriages of Mecklenburg County [Virginia] from 1765 to 1810
Marriages of Mecklenburg County [Virginia] from 1765 to 1810. Stratton Nottingham. (1928).
Mecklenburg County in south-central Virginia was formed from Lunenburg County in 1764 and today adjoins the North Carolina border opposite the counties of Granville, Vance, and Warren. This volume contains the only official record of extant marriages from Mecklenburg County. It was compiled from loose papers, inasmuch as no marriage register prior to 1850 is known to exist. The work consists of some 2,000 marriages in all and is arranged alphabetically according to the name of the groom. Each entry furnishes the names of the contracting parties, date of the bond, and name(s) of sureties. On occasion, the abstracts also indicate the bride and groom's address and/or the names of their parents. This work of vital importance to persons interested in Virginia genealogy concludes with a complete name index to the brides.
