He married second, Mrs. Mary Bacon, November 22, 1733. This second marriage is cited as an instance in New England of what were known as smock marriages. Smock marriages were weddings where the bride appeared dressed in a white sheet or chemise furnished by the bridegroom. The reason of such a garb was the belief that if a man married a woman who was in debt he could be held liable for her indebtedness if he received any property with her. Eventually all immodesty was avoided by the bridegroom's furnishing to the bride all the clothing worn at the wedding retaining title to the same in himself. This was done in the presence of witnesses that he might prove the fact in case he was sued for any debts she might have contracted. The following is a copy of the record in the case of the second marriage of James Bailey: — "Bradford, December, ye 24, 1733.
