I have a found on Ancestry a 'Marriage Bonds and Allegations' for an ancestor.  Could I enter this as a marriage or as banns.


Here is the reference details if anyone wants to look it up


Name: Hugh Bailey Event Date: 27 Nov 1797 Parish: Hanover Square, St George County: Middlesex Spouse's Name: Jane Holme Event Type: Bond Reference Number: DL/A/D/24/MS1009IE/110

A marriage bond is like a bann in the sense that it shows that a marriage was intended. Neither proves the marriage actually happened. If you have other evidence that they did in fact marry, I would enter a marriage with a "circa" date, because you don't know how long after the bond was made they were married, and cite the bond as a source.
