Marriage bonds: 1823. 379 marriage bonds filed in 1823 in the Diocese of Durham. These are brand new, not previously in our bond index. In this period, marriage bonds often provide ages, occupations, place of residence, and sometimes a father or mother for the bride and groom during a period when marriage registers did not provide that information. Please read the Marriage Bonds section of the Transcription Samples page for a description of what information is found in bonds, allegations, and associated documents, and how we present that information.
