Goochland Co VA Marriage Bonds abstracted in WILLIAM & MARY COLLEGE QUARTERLY, Vol. VII, No. 2; Oct 1898; Series 1; p.98-106. 12 Mar 1761. William Clarkson to Martha Pledge; security, William Rutherford.
Martha married a year after her sister Elizabeth, she could have been younger than indicated here.
There is a record of one child of this marriage recorded by Rev. Douglas - a daughter Mary born 15 Jun 1761. [This is only three months following her marriage and old style dating had been replaced by this time - possibly one date or the other has been recorded in error. Mary's baptism was 8 Nov 1761.] However, Mary may have died before Martha's father William wrote his will in 1779 as he indicated Martha had no children at that time.
William Clarkson was 21 years of age when he married. Security and witnesses were William Rutherford, Jeremiah Rich, David Clarkson, Nathaniel Thompson and Thos. Jackson. His father was named as Anselm Clarkson, Sr.
