  3. Women rarely signed marriage bonds in the early 19th century given the limited legal rights they had at that point in time.

  4. I think Lorraine is correct about the names - but it asked for the names of the bondsmen and not the names of the bride and groom.

  6. Men had all the rights, especially in the 1800's, and the bondsmen signed.
