Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1684 Birth Record of Anne Bartlet in Newbury, Massachusetts

 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 1684  birth record of Anne Bartlet in Newbury, Massachusetts:

The birth record:

The transcription of this birth record is:

"BARTLET, Anne, d. Christopher, Mar. 29, 1684."

The source citation for this birth record is:

The Essex Institute, Vital Records of Newbury, Massachusetts, to the End of the Year 1849, 2 Volumes (Salem, Mass. : The Essex Institute, 1911), Volume 1, Births, page 38, Anne Bartlet entry, 29 March 1684.

This record is a Derivative Source, with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the birth of Anne Bartlet in Newbury, Massachusetts, the daughter of Christopher Bartlet. The original record is probably in a Newbury town record book that may no longer be available.  

Anne Bartlett was born 29 March 1684 in Newbury, Massachusetts, the daughter of Christopher and Deborah Weed) Bartlett. She married Joseph Colbey (1680-1754) on 22 November 1704 in Amesbury, Massachusetts.   Joseph Colbey was born 1 August 1680 in Amesbury, Massachusetts, the son of John nd Sarah(Eldredge) Colby.  Joseph and Anne had eight children.

Joseph and Anne (Bartlett) Colby are my 7th great-grandparents.  I am descended through their son Joseph Colby (1707-1768), who married 1736 Abigail Worthen (1714-????).
