Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1709 Marriage Record of Samuel Hubburd and Sarah Clark in Concord, Mass.

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 1709 marriage record of Samuel Hubburd and Sarah Clark in the Concord, Massachusetts vital town record book:

The marriage record for Samuel Hubburd and Sarah Clark is the second entry in the Marriages section of the page:

This record says:

"Samuel Hubburd and Sarah Clark both of concord were marryed by y^e Rever^nd Joseph Estabrooke Decemb^r y^e 8th day, 1709"

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 births, Marriages and Deaths, page 74, Samuel Hubburd and Sarah Clark marriage entry, 1709.

This record is a Derivative Source with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the names of Samuel Hubburd and Sarah Clark, and the marriage date and place.  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.  Sarah Clark (1681-1720) was the daughter of Samuel and Rachel (Nichols) Clark of 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.
