Marriage bonds issued by the Durham Diocese 1681-1687 (1,028 bonds). We now have all known surviving bonds from 1590-1687. No bonds exist for the period of 23 Mar 1686-31 Dec 1687.
Please read the Marriage Bonds section of the Transcription Samples page for a description of what information is found in bonds, allegations, and associated documents, and how we present that information.
The Diocese of Durham covered all of County Durham and parts of Northumberland and North Yorkshire. Marriage bonds were not issued on a per-district basis, so the marriage bond database will only be searched if you choose All Districts.
These records are from Ron Nubley’s Index, which we are in the process of integrating into our collection, so when you buy one of these, you will immediately get the brief index entry, and the full entry will be transcribed and emailed to you within 3 days, at which point it becomes part of our database and you can view it again at any time.
