Treasure Chest Thursday #305: 1733 Marriage Record of Nathaniel Guild and Mary Boyden in Dedham, Mass.

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - time to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings.

The treasure today is the  1733 marriage record of Nathaniel Guild and Mary Boyden in the vital record book of Dedham, Massachusetts:

The snippet of the marriage record is:

The transcription of this record is:

"Marryed by John Metcalfe, Esq'r. Nath'll Guild of Dedham & Mary Boyden of Wrentham, June y'e 12, 1733"

The source citation for this record is:

Don Gleason Hill (editor), The Record of Births, Marriages and Deaths in the Town of Dedham,1635-1845 (Dedham, Mass. : Town of Dedham, 1886), page 60, Nathll Guild of Dedham and Mary Boyden of Wrentham entry.

Nathaniel Guild and Mary Boyden are my 6th great-grandparents.  They had six children together, and all six lived to adulthood.  Their first daughter, Mary Guild (1735-1800), who married Amos Plimpton (1735-1808) in 1756, is my 5th great-grandmother.
