Marriage Licenses of Caroline County, Maryland, 1774-1815. Henry Downes Cranor. Paperback, (1904), repr. 2015, 66 pp.
Caroline County, Maryland, was formed in 1774 from parts of the counties of Dorchester and Queen Ann. The licenses have been copied from the records in the office of the Clerk of the Court of the county, and but one year (1776) is missing. No attempt has been made to correct the spelling of any of the names, some of which are almost undecipherable on the record. From 1774 to 1804 the licensed fee was one pound, and subsequently four dollars. The marriages are arranged chronologically, with the groom listed first, and in excess of 4,000 names provided.
