Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1683 Birth of Jonathan Wade (1683-b1720) in Medford, 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 1683 birth record of Jonathan Wade in Medford, Massachusetts:

The birth record for  Jonathan Wade is in the Wade section:

The transcription of this record is:

"WADE] Jonathan, s. Capt. Nathaniell [Nathaniel, M.R.], Mar. 5, 1682-3."

The source citation for this record is:

Henry Ernest Woods, (Editor), Vital Records of Medford, Massachusetts, to the Year 1850 (Boston, Mass. : New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1907), Births, page 157, Jonathan Wade entry, 5 March 1682/3, son of Nathaniell.

This record is a Derivative Source, with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the birth of Jonathan Wade.  The Original Source is probably a Medford town record book that is not now extant.

Jonathan Wade (1683-b1720) was born 5 March 1682/3 in Medford, Massachusetts, the son of Nathaniel and Mercy (Bradstreet) Wade.  He died before 1720, probably in Mystic, Connecticut. He married 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.

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.
