[Transcribed by Dave Swerdfeger]
THE list of Bolton Births, Marriages and Deaths comprised in this volume includes all that were found in the Town Books covering the per10d from the earliest date there recorded to the end of the year 1849. Some additions have been made from other sources, and these are indicated in each instance by proper reference.
All of the records are condensed in print as much as is consistent with intelligibility, accuracy, and completeness of information. Differences in duplicates, and explanatory or other matter which seemed necessary or desirable, appear in brackets.
Marriages and intentions of marriage are printed under the names of both parties, but the full information concerning each person is given only under his or her name.
The double date is used in the months of January, February and March pr10r to 1752 only when it so appears in the original, and instances of the modern form after 1725 are not uncommon.
When places other than Bolton and Massachusetts are named in the original records, they are given in the printed copy.
The age given in the Deaths is in years unless otherwise indicated. BOLTON, WORCESTER COUNTY.
