Scott County Virginia
Consents & Bonds of Marriage
1815 - 1853

In order for a marriage to take place four records were recorded. First the Consent of a parent or guardian of the bride or groom that was under age, or an oath that they were of age. Second usually the groom and the bride's father bound themselves for $150 which would be void after the marriage took place. Third the License was issued, and Fourth the Minister gave a Return of Marriage to be recorded in the courthouse.

In Marriage Book 1, is a list of Returns that were recorded by the county clerk. Many times the wrong name, date, etc were entered.

In the courthouse today, are the original loose pages of the Consent, Bond, License, and Returns.
THIS BOOK contains the reproductions of the actual Consents and Bonds that were found.

Included are:

  • 87 pages of Consents reproductions.
  • 153 pages of Bonds reproductions.
  • Completely indexed including all names on the document including the witnesses.
  • Total of 258 pages.
