Dorchester County, Maryland Marriage References, 1669-1800


This book is a comprehensive compilation of marriage references, actual and implied, in Dorchester County, MD from its formation. It is much more than just names and dates. In many instances the reader will find births and deaths, names of parents, children, and other relatives, places of residence and burial, military service information, and places of residence and burials. These marriage references were gleaned from licenses, land records, probate records (wills, accounts, inventories, distributions and testamentary proceedings), bibles, church records, tombstone inscriptions, newspapers, military records, and family histories. In some cases the dates of marriage are precise while in other cases, they are approximate or undetermined.
