This work contains abstracts of all marriage bonds issued in Bertie County between 1762 and 1868. (Bonds dating from 1722, when the county was formed, are no longer extant.) The marriage records abstracted here are based on microfilm copies of the original bonds and on a microfilm copy of a register of marriages maintained from 1851 by the Register of Deeds at Windsor, the county seat. As is customary, the data is arranged throughout by the surname of the groom, and each entry provides the name of the bride, the date of the marriage bond or (after 1851) marriage license, and the names of clergymen, witnesses, and bondsmen. The name index at the back of the volume provides easy access to brides, witnesses, and bondsmen specified in the bonds. This work is an important contribution to North Carolina genealogy.
