Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1677 Birth Record for Mary Dolberry in Boston, 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 1677 birth record of Mary Dolberry in Boston, Massachusetts:
The birth record for  Mary Dolberry is near the middle of the page:

The transcription of this record is:

"Mary of Thomas & Sarah Dolberry born Apr. 13 [1677]."

The source citation for this record is:

Boston City Registrar, Reports of the Record Commissioners of the City of Boston; Volume 9 (Boston, Mass.: Rockwell and Churchill, 1883), page 141, Mary Dolberry birth entry, 13 April 1677.

This record is a Derivative Source, with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the birth of Mary Dolberry.  The Original Source is probably a Boston town record book that is not now extant online.

Mary Dolberry (1677-a1720) in 1701, probably in Medford.  She was born 13 April 1677 in Boston, Massachusetts, the daughter of Thomas and Sarah (--?--) Dolberry (or Dolbear).  She married  in about 1699 to Jonathan Wade (1683-b1720), the son of Nathaniel and Mercy (Bradstreet) Wade.  He died before 1720, probably in Mystic, Connecticut. 

Nathaniel and Mary (Dolberry) Wade are my 7th great-grandparents.  I am descended through their son Nathaniel Wade (1708-1754), who married Ruth Hawkins (1710-1789) in 1731 in Scituate, Rhode Island.
