No action brought on any recognizance, bail, or appearance bond given in any criminal
proceeding whatever shall be barred or defeated, nor shall judgment be arrested thereon,
by reason of any neglect or omission to note or record the default of any principal
or surety at the time when such default shall happen, or by reason of any defect in
the form of the recognizance, if it sufficiently appear from the tenor thereof at
what court or before what district judge the party or witness was bound to appear,
and that the court or magistrate before whom it was taken was authorized by law to
require and take such recognizance; and a recognizance may be recorded after execution
