Boston marriages to residents of Maine, 1700-1809.

from:
Twenty-eighth Report of the Record Commisioners
. Boston Marriages, 1700-1751. compiled by the Registry Dept., City of Boston. Boston. Municipal Printing Office. 1898

Thirtieth Report of the Record Commisioners. Boston Marriages, 1752-1809. compiled by the Registry Dept., City of Boston. Boston. Municipal Printing Office. 1903

Boston Marriages from 1700 to 1809,  compiled by Edward W. McGlenen. Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co. 1977 (in 2 volumes, 1700-1751 and 1752-1809) These replicate the books above.

    It can be seen that marriages were usually in the bride's home town.  A few of the names had a title of Mr. or Mrs., a status title. Then, as now, "Intentions of Marriage" were declared to the town clerk, and many of the records refer only to the Intentions (since the marriage ceremony itself was a religious affair, not a state concern!) Often the spelling of the names was different in the Intentions and actual Marriage record.

    I have tried to retain the given spellings, but do make mistakes. This list includes listings only from Maine towns whose names I recognized, and there may be a few more. Massachusetts and Maine duplicated many town names, and I assumed those were the Massachusetts towns, and therefore excluded them (except for Georgetown). Some repeated town names; Georgetown, Richmond, Rockport, Rockland, Falmouth, Yarmouth, Gardner/Gardiner, Medford and probably many others. A few place names are mysterious.  I have not tried to correlate Intention listings with marriages that lack place names. The  arrangement is pretty much random.
