MARRIAGE BOND – JESSE BENJAMIN HALL TO NECCESSA STILLWELL

We can learn a number of things from this bond both about the persons involved and about the United States as well.

The country had, by 1838, switched from the English Pound monetary system to US dollars. Rather than for 500 Pounds “Current Money” this bond is for $1,000 dollars.  This bond is made payable to the State of North Carolina rather than to the Governor.

The Court Clerk, W. Welch, still used the alphabetic “f” character to mean a double “s” but Jesse himself signed his name using the two characters. “Neccessa” is misspelled. The father of Neccessa is Jacob Stillwell.

Jesse had a good friend in Allen McBroom who was willing to stand good for his bond.

We have an example of Jesse Hall’s signature.

This bond system was abolished 30 years later in 1868 in favor of a license and minister’s return system. Bonds did not generate any tax income but a license put a tax on every marriage preformed. The date of the bond is often taken as the date of marriage but it could be, and often was, preformed on a different date.
