Book Review: "Brunswick County Virginia Marriages 1750-1853" with Last Name Index N-Z

The following is a summary of the last name index of John Vogt and T. William Kethley, Jr.'s Brunswick County Virginia Marriages 1750-1853. Entries show both bride and groom's names, marriage bond date and sometimes witnesses, consents and other items of interest. This is a soft cover reprint of a 1988 original, contains 296 pages plus figures, appendices & fold-out map, printed by New Papyrus Co. of Athens, Georgia. The early marriage records of this county do not begin until 1750. A total of 3,364 bonds have been transcribed covering the years 1750-1853. Also incorporated into these entries are ministers' returns whenever available.

FYI, the book you would get contains all letters A-Z but I broke them up here into two posts so they would not look so long.

Here are two sample entries from the book:

"Perkins Joel & Lucy Jackson 27 Feb 1818; b - Green Jackson con - Ephraim Jackson, father wit - Green Jackson"
"Holderby Joseph & Lucy Brander 27 Jun 1797; b - John Jones min - Hubbard Saunders - 6 Jul 1797"

The following is a list of names made from the surname frequency index at the front of the book:
