I have a copy of the following marriage license for my ancestors, John B. CLARK and Henrietta CLARK:

Know all men by these presents, that we John CLARK and Isaac CLARK are held and firmly bound unto his excellency William B. Giles the Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, for the time being, and to his successors in office, for the use of the said Commonwealth, in the just and full sum of one hundred and fifty dollars:--To which payment well and truly to be made, we bind ourselves, our heirs, executors and administrators, jointly and severally, firmly by these presents. Sealed with our seals, and dated this 14th day of April 1828. The condition of the above obligation is such, That whereas the above bound John CLARK hath this day obtained from Sanford Reamey, Clerk of Henry county, a license for his intermarriage with Henrietta CLARK of said county:--Now if there should be no lawful cause to obstruct the marriage for which the aforesaid license was desired and granted, then this obligation to be void, or else to remain in full force and virtue.
Witness,
(signature of John Clark)
(signature of Isaac Clark)

My question is who was Isaac CLARK mentioned here? Was he Henrietta's father? Was he John's brother or father?
