Essex, Massachusetts Vital Records
Births, Deaths, & Marriages 
to 1850

Order item B145

The book is 57 pages, not indexed, names listed alphabetically, soft cover with a plastic comb binding, and available for $9.98 + $3.99 shipping & handling charge (Add $1.00 S&H for each additional volume ordered).

     The records of births, marriages, and deaths include all entries to be found in the books of record kept by the town clerks; in the church records; in the cemetery inscriptions; and in private records found in family Bibles. These records are printed in a condensed form in which every essential particular has been preserved. All duplication of the town clerks' record has been eliminated, but differences in entry and other explanatory matter appear in brackets. Parentheses are used when they occur in the original record; also to indicate the maiden name of a wife.

     When places other than Essex and Massachusetts are named in the original records, they are given in the printed copy. Marriages and intentions of marriage are printed under the names of both parties. In all records the original spelling of names is followed and in the alphabetical arrangement the various forms should be examined, as items about the same family may be found under different spellings. 

The territory comprising the present town [1908] of Essex was originally a part of Ipswich, and was known as Chebacco Parish. The parish was established Dec. 10, 1679, and the town of Essex was incorporated Feb. 5, 1819.

1820, 1,107       1850, 1,585
1830, 1,333       1905, 1,790
1840, 1,450
