Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1668 Birth Record of Edward Harington in Watertown, 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 1668 Birth entry for Edward Harington in the Watertown, Massachusetts Bay Colony town record book:

The marriage entry is  the 13th from the top and 14th from the bottom of the left-hand page:

The transcription of this record is:

"Edward Harington son of Robert & Susan Born the 2'd of March"

The source citation for this record is:

"Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988," indexed database and digital image, (, Watertown, Births, Marriages and Deaths, page 62 (image 151 of 3991), Edward Harington birth entry, 2 March 1668/9.

This is an entry in a digitized handwritten Watertown town record book.  It is an Original Source with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the birth of Edward Harington to Robert and Susan Harington on 2 March 1668/9.
Edward Harrington married Mary Ockington (1669-1725) in 1692 in Watertown, Massachusetts Bay Colony.  They had nine children between 1693 and 1711, all recorded in Watertown.

Edward and Mary (Ockington) Harrington  are my 7th great-grandparents, through their daughter Mary Harrington (1693-1774) who married  Joseph Grout (1683-1758) in 1717.
