==============================
Contributor Diane Murach states:

I'm still unsure what some of the terms mean.

Regarding dates: It appears that when the inhabitants vote to do some thing, such as fix the meeting house, the final payments are written under the original date in a different year.

Made-up Example - On Jan 5 1704/5 voted to collect monies to pay the minister for 1705. In 1707, you may find the date Jan 5 1704/5 when the minister's signed that he received monies for the year of 1705. I kept everything in the same year that the transcriber did.

Look at 1710 -- I inserted a comment in both files regarding Henry's possible death date. Jeff Green probably knows better than I how to interpret this.

==============================
Example of typical entry and first time Henry appears in record:

December

[7] 26 of the 10 m:1672.

1. At another meeting it was voted that we will build a meeting [house] of 34 foot in length 28 foot broad and 16 foot between jointes

2. It was voted that we have Chosen to joine with the Selectmen for [to] agree with a Carpenter to build the meeting house and setting [men] to work Nathl Putnam, Henry Kenney, Joseph Hutchinson and Jo[hn] Putnam.

3. Voted that the Selectmen shall make a rate according to the C[ourt] order equally for the paying for the building the meeting house.

4. Voted that it shall be accounted a lawful warning to warne a publick meeting with a paper written under the Committee's hands and sett upon the meeting house post.
