This partial series of marriage bonds is preserved in a bound volume of
miscellaneous manuscripts in the Library of The Bucks County Historical
Society in Doylestown, PA. These BONDS took place in Bucks County prior
to and during the American Revolution. THE DATE GIVEN IS THAT WHEN THE
BOND WAS MADE, AND IS NOT NECESSARILY THE SAME AS THAT OF THE MARRIAGE
ITSELF. Further records can be searched at their library.
