Hamilton, Massachusetts Vital Records
Births, Deaths, & Marriages 
To 1850

Order item B209
The book is 86 pages, not indexed, names listed alphabetically, soft cover with a plastic comb binding, and available for $14.98 + $3.99 shipping & handling charge (Add $1.00 S&H for each additional volume ordered).

     The records of birth, marriages and deaths in this book 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 Hamilton 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 item about the same family may be found under different spellings.

The territory comprising the town of Hamliton was originally a part of Ipswich, known as the "Hamlet." The parish was incorporated Oct. 14, 1713 as the Third Church of Ipswich. The town was incorporated as Hamilton on June 21, 1793. It is said that the name was suggested by Rev. Manasseh Cutler, D.D., pastor of the church, who as a member of Corgress, had an acquaintance with Alexander Hamilton.

The population of Hamilton at difference periods was as follows:

1800 - 749; 1820 - 802; 1850 - 889; 1810 - 780; 1830 - 748;

1905 - 1,646; 1840 - 818


2. In all records the original spelling is followed. 
3. The various spellings of a name should be examined, as items about the same family or individual might be found under different spellings. 
4. Marriages and intentions of marriages are printed under the names of both parties, but the full information concerning each party is given only in the entry under his or her name. When both the marriage and intention of marriage are recorded, only the marriage record is printed; and where a marriage appears without the intention recorded, it is designated with an asterisk. 
5. Additional information which does not appear in the original text of an item, i.e., any explanation, query, inference, or difference shown in other entries of the record, is bracketed. Parentheses are used only when they occur in the original text, or to separate clauses found there -- such as the birth-place of parents, in late marriage records.
