Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1664 Birth Record of Elizabeth Mayner (1664-1733) in Marlborough, 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 birth entry for Elizabeth Mayner (1664-1733) in the Marlborough, Massachusetts vital record book:

The birth entry is  near the middle
 of the page:

The transcription of this record is:

"[MAYNER] Ellizabeth, d. John Sr. and Mary, April 2, 1664."

The source citation for this record is:

Franklin P. Rice (editor), Vital Records of Marlborough, Massachusetts, to the End of the Year 1849 (Boston, Mass. : Franklin P. Rice ,1908), Births, Ellizabeth Mayner entry, 2 April 1664, daughter of John and Mary Mayner.

This is an abstract from an original town record book for Marlborough, Massachusetts, so it is a Derivative Source with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the birth of Elizabeth Mayner and the names of her parents.
Elizabeth Maynard (1664-1733) was the daughter of John and Mary (Gates) Maynard of Marlborough, Massachusetts.  She married Nathan Brigham (1671-1747), the second son of Thomas and Mary (Rice) Brigham of Marlborough, in about 1693 in Marlborough.  

Nathan and Elizabeth (Maynard) Brigham are my 7th great-grandparents, through their son Nathan Brigham (1693-1784) who married Dinah Rice (1693-1725) in 1717.
