Treasure Chest Thursday - 1673 Birth Record of Matthew Wing (1673-1724) in Sandwich, Massachusetts

 It's time to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings for Treasure Chest Thursday.

The treasure today is the 1673 birth record of Matthew Wing in Sandwich, Massachusetts:

The birth record for Matthew is the fifth one listed in the Wing section:

The transcription of this record for Matthew Wing is:

"matthew wing the sonn of Stephen wing was Borne the 1 day 1 mo 1673"

The source citation for this record is:

"Massachusetts, U.S., Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988," indexed database and digital image, (, Sandwich > General Records, 1651-1691, Births, Marriages, Deaths, image 122 of 128, Matthew Wing birth entry, 1 day 1 mo 1673.

This record is an Original Source, with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the birth of Matthew Wing.  The Stephen Wing family were Quakers, and "1 day 1 mo 1673" is the first day of March 1673 in the Gregorian calendar.

Matthew Wing (1673-1724) was born 1 March 1673 in Sandwich, Massachusetts, the son of Stephen and Sarah (Briggs) Wing.  He married Elizabeth (Mott) Ricketson (1659-c1723) on 4 September 1696 in Dartmouth, Massachusetts.  

Matthew and Elizabeth (Mott) (Ricketson) Wing are my 7th great-grandparents.  I am descended through their son, Benjamin Wing (1698-1782), who married Content Tucker (1695-1739) on 18 October 1722 in Dartmouth, Massachusetts.
