HISTORICAL DOCUMENTS FROM PENDLETON CO., VA (WV) MARRIAGE BONDS & CONSENTS

Marriage bonds were usually posted in the bride’s home county and can indicate the general time of a marriage. The bond is usually signed by the groom and a bondsman who was often a relative of the bride. The bondsman may have been her father, or if he were deceased or otherwise unable to sign, the bondsman may have been her brother, another family member, guardian, etc. A consent was needed when one of the parties was underage and the consent document may specifically indicate a family relationship. The original signatures and marks on these marriage bonds and consents can also provide valuable research clues.

These CDs contain the known marriage bonds that have been collected and filed together at the courthouse in Franklin, WV for the years shown. A number of the original bonds are no longer in the courthouse. Some were given to family members, some are in a “loose paper” collection in Morgantown and some others, found in a private collection, were published by Marsha Fuller.

Each disc contains a complete table of contents where German script signatures are underlined. Many of the surnames listed below use a standardized spelling to help with identification. The spelling of those surnames may vary greatly in the documents. Some files include marriage bond only. Other files (*) include marriage bond and also a consent or other additional document.
