Marriages of Granville County, North Carolina, 1753 - 1868
Marriages of Granville County, North Carolina, 1753-1868. Brent H. Holcomb. (1981). Granville County, North Carolina attracted settlers from Pennsylvania and the Shenandoah Valley and from eastern
and southside Virginia. Marriages of Granville County contains abstracts of all marriage bonds issued in Granville County between 1753 and 1868--some 8,000 bonds, mentioning a total of 23,000 persons! The marriage records abstracted here are based on microfilm copies of the original bonds and on a microfilm copy of a register of bonds maintained from 1851 by the clerk of the county court in Oxford, North Carolina. Within these bonds there are occasional lists of marriages performed by justices and ministers, and as some of these marriages have not been listed elsewhere they are included here. As is the convention, 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 officiant's return, or both, and the names of clergymen, witnesses, and bondsmen.
