In Reply to: Reliance Hinckley m James Thompson in Biddeford 1732? by William Gould of 789

Here are some records from ME Historical & Geneal. Recorder, not a primary record, but another reference. The marriage you want is mentioned in these "Random Notes" and is given in "Hinckley Heritage & History" [HHH] by E. Charles HINCKLEY.

Some of the records are a bit hard to follow as given. The first family is that of Deacon Samuel HINCKLEY (24 S 1684, Barnstable, MA - 1752) who m1. 1703, Mary FREEMAN. (13 Mar. 1687 - 10 Dec. 1717). I'll add parts in brackets from HHH.

Random Notes of Early Settlers of Brunswick & Topsham:

Deacon Samuel HINKLEY'S ancestors were originally from England, came to Truro, Cape Cod, and then to Saco Falls, where they resided some years. Dea. Samuel, son of Gov. Thomas HINCKLEY, came to Brunswick about 1735. He brought with him six sons and four daus. Two daus. m. THOMPSON, one m. TIBBETTS, and the fourth m. Saml. SCAMMON of Biddeford.

[Reliance HINCKLEY (21 N 1714, Harwich - 22 May 1751) m. 13 Apr. 1732, Capt. James THOMPSON. Mary, bpt. 12 Apr. 1724, Truro, m. Joseph THOMPSON. Experience (16 Jan. 1720 - 15 S 1798) m. ca. 1737, Timothy TIBBETTS. Mehitable (25 D 1718 - 6 Je. 1811) m. 27 Aug. 1736, Samuel SCAMMON (1713 - 1758).]

Sons of Saml. were Seth, Shubael, Samuel, Edward [sic, Edmund/Edmond], Aaron, & Isaac. Seth, the eldest, was killed by the Indians near Ham's Garrison, 2 May 1747. He had gone from Thompson's Garrison to get a strap for a cow bell and was waylaid and shot on his return. Edmund & Isaac, and Gideon, son of Seth, together with Dea. Saml. WHITNEY & his son Saml., Hezekiah PURINGTON, & Saml. LOMBARD were surprised by Indians as they were haying north of the turnpike. Isaac HINKLEY was shot trying to escape, and his remains were not found until the next summer. The others were carried prisoners to Canada, from whence, after incredible hardships, they were ransomed by Government and returned to their families. Gideon was 19 when taken...

Frequent Indian attacks occurred in outlying settlements. About 23 Je. 1751, they assaulted New Meadows and took captive three Hinkleys, two Whitneys, Purrington, and Lombard...

Edmund HINCKLEY [b. 20 N 1712, & Sarah SMITH] had nine children [sic, ten, eldest, Edmund b. 9 S 1745, dy]: Sarah, Elnathan, Isaac, Thankful, Precilla, Samuel, Lemuel, and twins Edmund & Aaron.

Shubael had sons James (& twins), Shubael and Thomas; moved to Hallowell [HHH says Shubael (15 Mar. 1708 - 1 F 1798) had four wives and twenty ch.]

Aaron [(13 S 1715 - 1793) m. 13 F 1746, Mary LARRABEE] had twelve ch. He d. 1793, aged 76 [?], at New Meadows. His wf. Mary LARRABEE, b. Boston, MA, d. ca. 1807, aged 81. Children:

Letter from James CURTIS to John McKEAN: One of Mr. SMITH's daus. [Agnes] married T. COTON. Her first husband was Isaac HINKLEY, who was shot by the Indians in Mr. WESTERN's field. Isaac's only child [Mehitable (28 Jan. 1751 - 1842) m. Thomas] THOMPSON.

Where did you find the record of the first child's birth? Perhaps somebody got confused by the change of calendars, and it should be Mar. 1733/4. At least the record of birth for Reliance is "semi-primary." :-)
