William Haslet Jones. 2000. Chichester, New Hampshire, was founded in 1721 but was not properly settled prior to 1756. These birth, marriage and death records have been gleaned from many sources, including old town clerk's record books, church and cemetery records, and the New Hampshire State Vital Records at Concord. Some 5,000 entries were found. The book is divided into three sections: births, marriages and deaths. Names are listed alphabetically within each section. The source of each entry is identified. Birth records provide date of birth and parents' names where available. Marriage records provide date of marriage, names of both bride and groom, place of marriage if other than Chichester and the name of the presiding clergyman. Death records provide date of death and place if other than Chichester, as well as age (if known). The appendix includes a list of town officers, names of the earliest land owners, Warn Out notices and Revolutionary War town orders. A bibliography and a map of the town add to the value of the book. Biblio., Alphabetical Lists, 160 pp. [1435-H]
