Treasure Chest Thursday - 1662 Marriage of Nathaniel FittsRandle and Mary Holley in Barnstable, 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 1662 marriage record of Nathaniel FittsRandle and Mary Holley in Barnstable, Massachusetts:

The marriage record is the 8th line from the top of the left-hand page:

The transcription of this marriage record is:

"Nath'l Fittsrandle & Mary Holley Married Nov'r 1662"

The source citation for this  marriage record is:

"Massachusetts, U.S., Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988," indexed database and digital images, (, Barnstable > Births, Marriages, Deaths, 1643-1714 Town Records, 1736-1855; Vol. 1 > page 412 (image 196 of 212), Nath'a Fittsrandle and Mary Holley marriage entry, November 1662; citing original data from Massachusetts town and city clerk records in Jay and Delene Holbrook, Massachusetts Vital and Town Records (Provo, Utah : Holbrook Research Institute), Microfiche collection.

This record is a Derivative Source, with Secondary Information and Direct Evidence of the marriage of Nathaniel Fitz Randolph and Mary Holley/Holloway in Barnstable, Massachusetts.  The record is arranged by family in the same hand over many years, and is thereby Derivative, copied from original town records no longer extant or available.

Nathaniel FitzRandolph was born before 15 May 1642 in Barnstable, Massachusetts, the son of Edward and Elizabeth (Blossom) Fitz Randolph.  He died 21 November 1713 in Woodbridge, New Jersey.  He married Mary Holley (or Holloway) (1641-1703) on November 1662 in Barnstable, Massachusetts.  She was the daughter of Joseph and Rose (Allen) Holley/Holloway.  They had 7 children.

Nathaniel and Mary (Holley) Fitz Randolph are my 8th great-grandparents.  I am descended through their son Samuel FitzRandolph (1688-1754) who married Mary Jones (1672-1760) in 1693.
