1722 Marriage Record of Benjamin Wing and Content Tucker in Dartmouth, Mass. - Post 415 for 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 1722 marriage record of Benjamin Wing and Content Tucker in the Dartmouth, Massachusetts vital records:

The marriage record for Benjamin Wing and Content Tucker is:

The transcription of this record is:

"WING, Benjamin, s[on]. Matthu of D[artmouth] and Content Tucker, d[aughter]. Abraham of D[artmouth], 18th, 8 mo., "called October," 1722, C.R.3""

The source citation for this record is:

Vital records of Dartmouth, Massachusetts, to the year 1850 ( Boston, Mass. : New England Historic Genealogical Society,1929-1930), Marriages, page 553, Benjamin Wing and Content Tucker entry, 1722.

Benjamin Wing (1698-1782) was the son of Matthew and Elizabeth (Mott) (Ricketson) Wing of Dartmouth, Massachusetts.  He married (1) Content Tucker (1695-1738) of Dartmouth, Mass., the daughter of Abraham and Hannah (Mott) Tucker, in 1722 in Dartmouth.

Benjamin and Content (Tucker) Wing are my 6th great-grandparents.  I am descended from their daughter, Abigail Wing (1734-1806), who married Jonathan White (1732-1804) in 1756 and resided in Dartmouth and Westport, Massachusetts.

This record for the marriage is a Derivative Source record, because it was copied from an earlier town and/or church record books.  I did not find an earlier Dartmouth town record book in the record collection.  This record is from the church records of Society of Friends, Dartmouth Monthly Meeting (that is what "C.R.3" means according to the Dartmouth Vital Records book).
