Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1690 Birth Record of Mary Sambourne (1690-1790?) in Hampton, New Hampshire

 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 1690 birth record of Mary Sambourne in Hampton, New Hampshire:

The transcription of this birth record is:

Child's Name:      Mary Sambourne
Date of Birth:       27 October 1690
Sex:                       Female
Father:                 Benjamin Sambourne
Mother:                Sarah

Clerk:  Horace M. Dane
Town:  Hampton
Date:  April 23, 1906

The source citation for this birth record is:

"New Hampshire, U.S., Birth Records, 1631-1920," indexed database with record images, (, Birth Certificate > 1631-1900 > Sanborn I - Sand, #323, Mary Sambourne birth entry, 27 October 1690; Original data: Birth Certificates, 1631-1920. New Hampshire Department of State. Concord, New Hampshire.

This record is a Derivative Source, with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the birth of Mary Sambourne to Benjamin and Sarah Sambourne on 27 October 1690.  The original record is probably in a Hampton town record book that may no longer be available.  

Mary Sambourne (1690-1790?) was born 27 October 1690 in Hampton, New Hampshire, the daughter of Benjamin and Sarah (Worcester) Sambourne.  She married William Healey (1688-1772) on 13 January 1715/6 in Hampton.  They had nine children.
William and Mary (Sambourne) Healey are my 7th great-grandparents.  I am descended through their daughter Joanna Healey (1719-1809) who married John Underhill (1720-1793) on 21 October 1741 in Chester, New Hampshire.
