1713 Baptism Record for Jeremiah Knoulton in Ipswich, Massachusetts - - Post 379 of Treasure Chest Thursday

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - a chance 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  1713 baptism record of Jeremiah Knoulton in Ipswich, Massachusetts: 

The entry for Jeremiah Knoulton is the 4th entry on the left-hand page (titled "Baptisms, 1713"):

The transcription of this record is:

"Jerem^h son of Nathan^ll & Mary Knoulton Aug^t 2 1713"

The source citation for this record is:

Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988, digital images, ( : accessed 23 August 2017), Ipswich > Church Records, Earmarks, with Births, Marriages, Deaths, page 90 (image 293 of 326), Jerem^h Knoulton baptism entry, 2 August 1713.

Jeremiah Knowlton was the 5th and final child of Nathaniel and Mary (Bennett) Knowlton born in Ipswich, Essex County, Massachusetts.  

There are at least three transcriptions of the original town records in the "Massachusetts, Town and vital Records, 1620-1988" collection on  The image above is probably the first transcription from the original records.  So it is a Derivative Source, not an Original Source.

Jeremiah Knowlton (1713-1742) married Sarah Allen (1717-1796) in 1735 in Sudbury, Massachusetts, and had five children born in Concord, Massachusetts.  They are my 6th great-grandparents through their son, Jeremiah Knowlton (1745-1785), who married Abigail Peirce (1750-1776) in 1771 in Waltham, and resided in Lincoln and Weston, Massachusetts.
