BIRD/BYRD Marriages in Accomack County - 1853-1896
Provided by Wayne Stith


The following items are the marriage listings for BIRD and BYRD in the Marriage Register, Book 3, 1853-1896, for Accomack County, VA, found in the courthouse at Accomac. Where possible, I have added an indication about the race of the persons married based on information in the records, such as a mark in the "White" or "Colored" columns for some entries, or an abbreviation for "Colored" in the name entry field. In general, the absence of a designation in older marriage books indicates that the couple was white. Entries in this book are on a line spanning two facing pages. The names of the parents are frequently difficult to read, and, despite braces (}), it is often impossible to discern to which entry the name of the mother of the bride or the groom belongs.

Although I have indicated here that the dates may be marriage dates or bond dates, I believe that most, if not all, are bond dates. It is entirely possible that some of this information was inaccurately transcribed, particularly the ages. As always, double-check the source! Enjoy...
