Marriages in West Springfield, 1774-1796.

Contributed by Lyman H. Bagg.

p.54

For the first twenty-two years after the incorporation of the town, or until April, 1796, the record of births, marriages and deaths was kept in a small quarto volume wherein were also entered lists of men drawn as jurors, reports of surveyors and appraisers, descriptions of the distinctive "marks" of the sheep of different owners and other miscellaneous matter.

About the year 1798, a large leather book was procured, into which was copied from the old book the list of births and deaths; and the record of the same down to the year 1824 was continued therein, so that the complete list for forty-nine years occupied 157 pages al-together. The remaining 225 pages were given to the record of marriages and marriage in-tentions from April, 1796 to December, 1835, while the marriages of the twenty-two earlier years (with the exception of the first fifteen entries) were never copied fro the original volume.

Since the passage of the Act of March 16, 1844, the births, marriages and deaths have been recorded, in accordance with the system then established, in books especially arranged for that purpose. The births and deaths for the twenty years ending April, 1844, occupied 40 pages in a volume which also contains four pages of marriages, contracted previous to 1800 reported by the clerks of other towns, in obedience to the Act of 1857. The intentions of marriage are still entered in a book that has been in use for that purpose sinc 1836.

As the original record book of 1774 became thoroughly mildewed by exposure in a damp safe, about a dozen years ago, and the loose leaves which composed it are now no longer in a condition to be referred to and are fast crumbling to decay, I have taken the pains to make a literal transcript of the 100 folios that contain the early marriages and send the same for preservation in the pages of the Register.    L.
