Marriage was a very serious business in the 18th and 19th centuries, with Bonds, Banns, and all manner of criteria that had to be met before a marriage could take place. One requirement was that BOTH parties had to be baptized, therefore they BOTH had to have FULL names.
Inter racial marriage was outlawed in late 1600's and the laws regarding this remained in most southern states until 1967. The penalties for flouting these laws were severe for all concerned.
