Treasure Chest Thursday -- Two Marriage Records of Christopher Champlin (1656-1732) of Westerly, Rhode Island

 I looked 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 1682 marriage record of  Christopher Champlin and --?-- --?-- of Westerly, Rhode Island., and his second wife, Elizabeth (Whitehead) Davol in about 1721:
The two marriage records are in the middle of the page:

The transcription of these marriage records is:

"CHAMPLIN, Christopher (1656+-1732) & 1/wf __?__ ; ca 1682; Westerly, RI
CHAMPLIN, Christopher (1656+-1732) & 2/wf  ?Elizabeth DANELL, widow."

The source citation for the marriage records is:

"U.S. New England Marriages Prior to 1700," indexed database with digital images,   (, page 143, Christopher Champlin and __?__  marriage entry, about 1662.

This record is a Derivative Source, with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the marriages of Christopher Champlin (1656-1732).  

Christopher Champlin (1656-1732) was the son of Jeffrey and Ulalia (Garde) Champlin of Newport, Rhode Island.  He married (1) --?-- --?-- (c1658-c1718) in about 1682, and they had six children.  Christopher married (2) Elizabeth (Whitehead) Davol (1670-1722), widow of William Davol, and they had no children together.

Christopher and --?-- (--?--) Champlin  are my 7th great-grandparents. I am descended through their son, William Champlin (1687-1778) who married Joanna --?-- (c1692-c1762) before 1720 in Rhode Island.
