Matthew Carrico and Ruth O’Daniel 1813 Marriage


This is an interesting marriage bond due to the fact that we have a written permission from the groom’s father and the bride’s mother (evidently the bride’s father was deceased by this time).  My mother was a Carrico, so I am naturally interested in all records with the name – particularly from Washington County, Kentucky!  Cornelius Carrico, the witness for both permissions, is my 4th gr-grandfather, the brother of James T. Carrico who signed the permission slip for his son, and sons of James T. Carrico, Sr., who died in Charles County, Maryland.

Know all men by these presents, that we, Matthew Carrico and John Wood, are held and firmly bound unto the Commonwealth of Kentucky in the sum of fifty pounds current money.  To the payment of which well and truly to be made.  We bind ourselves, our heirs, jointly and severally, firmly by these presents sealed with our seals and dated this 16th day of January 1813.

The condition of this obligation is such that whereas there is a marriage shortly intended between the above bound Matthew Carrico and Ruth O’Daniel, for which a license has issued.  Now if there be no lawful cause to obstruct the said marriage, then this obligation to be void, else to remain in full force and virtue.
