Even though Duplin County was created in 1749, the marriages from 1749-1754 are missing. The marriage bonds for this book cover the time frame 1755-1868. These bonds were required by the clerk of courts in which the bride-to-be resided in. These bonds were issued before issuing a license to the prospective bridegroom and his bondsman, usually a close friend or relative.
