Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1687 Birth Record of Samuell Hubburd (1687-1753) in Concord, Massachusetts

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 1687 birth record of Samuell Hubburd in the Concord, Massachusetts vital town record book:

The birth record for Samuell Hubburd is near the top of the page:

This record says:

"Sam^ll Hubburd y^e son of Jonathan Hubburd & Hanah his wife was Born Aprill y^e 27th day, 1687"

The source citation for this record is:

George Tolman (compiler), Concord, Massachusetts Births, Marriages and Deaths, 1635-1850 (Concord, Mass. : Committee on Printing, 1894), Concord Registers -- Book II, page 31, Samuell Hubburd birth entry, 1687.

This record is a Derivative Source with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the name of Samuel Hubburd, the birth date and place, and his parents' names.  The Original Source is a town record book marriage register and a county marriage register that are no longer available.  Apparently, the records in this book are from a copy of the original register.  They are still Primary Information and Direct Evidence for the names and marriage event.

Samuel Hubburd (1687-1753) was the son of Jonathan and Hannah (Rice) Hubburd of Concord, Massachusetts.  He married (1) Sarah Clark (1681-1720) in 1709 in Concord, and (2) Prudence Temple (1692-????) in about 1721, probably in Concord.

Samuel and Sarah (Clark) Hubburd are my 7th great-grandparents, through their daughter Mary Hubburd (1712-1754) who married Amos Gates (1706-1783) in 1732.
