A marriage bond relates to couples that intended to marry by licence rather than by banns. The marriage allegation was the document in which the couple alleged (or frequently just the groom alleged on behalf of both of them) that there were no impediments to the marriage.The marriage bond set a financial penalty on the groom and his bondsman (usually a close friend or relative) in the case the allegation should prove to be false. After 1823 bonds were no longer made and only the allegation survives.
