This volume of Strafford County marriages, supplemental to the author's 1995 The Early Marriages of Strafford County, New Hampshire, 1630-1860, presents over 4,000 entries, all containing information unique to this volume. The new information is a combination of previously unrecorded marriages and updated entries from the previous edition. The updated information within the old entries are designated by underlining, so that the reader can distinguish between those and the entirely new entries. The material has been gathered from town records, Piscataqua Pioneer files, census records, private manuscripts, and published town histories. The marriages are arranged, first, alphabetically by the groom's surname and then chronologically by marriage date. In addition to the names of the bride and groom, and the marriage date, the entries also specify (when known): the official who performed the ceremony, parentage, birth and death dates, the town where the marriages took place, as well as residences of the bride and groom. A small number of the marriages took place in southern York County, Maine, and northern Rockingham County, New Hampshire, but are included due to their connection with the Strafford County families. There is an everyname bride index to further aid the researcher.
