The Early Marriages of Strafford County, New Hampshire, Supplement 2, 1630-1870


This second supplement, which contains over 4,700 marriage records, presents a combination of previously unrecorded marriages and updated entries from the previous edition. The updated information within the old entries is designated by underlining. 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 marriage took place, as well as residences of the bride and groom. An index of brides' full names provides quick access to women listed.

While most recorded marriages occurred in Strafford County, a small number took place in southern York County, Maine, and northern Rockingham County, New Hampshire, but are included due to their connection with Strafford County families.
