  • Notes 
    • (From Portland, An Illustrated History, by Stuart Morris)
      The time-honoured Portland custom of courtship never failed to shock visitors well into the 19th century. Marriage did not traditionally take place until the girl was pregnant. If after faithful courtship no conception followed the couple would part, on the assumption that they were not meant for each other. When pregnancy did occur, the two invariably became man and wife. Portland men were never known to abuse the situation, and infidelity was almost unheard of. Any Kimberlins who took advantage of this 'free love' but who did not honour their duty to marry were stoned out of the Island! This could explain Sarah Tizard's birth before the marriage of her parents.
