Colonial dating and marriage
Free Negroes Listing: This search displays a list of all the marriages from this database indicated to have taken place between free people of color.
Record-keeping practices prior to emancipation frequently included the use of the notation "Free Negro" to indicate a record or event concerning a free person of color, whose legal rights and responsibilties differed from those of enslaved people.
This search seeks only words that are directly next to each other, so use as few search terms as possible for best results (for example: a search for “New Kent spinster” would return an entry with the notes field: Mary Smith, New Kent spinster, but would NOT return an entry with the notes field: Mary Smith, spinster, of New Kent County).
Date Field in Database: The dates listed in the marriage card files are not necessarily marriage dates.
Some obvious errors have been corrected in the transition from card index file to database, but researchers should use caution in accepting the information in the index as accurate without consulting the original source material.
Original sources were not referenced in the creation of the database from the card files.
Searches may be performed by using a single letter in the first name field and a full or partial name in the last name field.
For example: bride first name “M” and bride last name “Will” returns all results for brides with first names that begin with the letter M and whose maiden or husband’s last name is Will, Wills, Williams, or Williamson.
This search function is useful for seeking results such as every occurrence of the surname Smith in the database or for information solely from the notes field, such as an alternative spelling of a bride or groom’s name, the name of a guardian, or the county of residence if different from that in which the marriage took place.At Brown's Department of Portuguese and Brazilian Studies, language and literature are a portal into the vast, vibrant world of Lusophone cultures.
