The following marriages are printed from a list in the hand-writing of the 
Reverend Peter Thacher, minister of the Church at ^Milton, Massachusetts, 
from IGSl until his death, 27 Dec. 1727. They were entered in his diary, 
not all together, but on separate pages scattered through the book. The 
leaves containing the entries were subsequently removed from the volume, and 
■were presented in their loose form by Mr. Henry McKean to the late William 
Thaddeus Harris, LL.B., of Cambridge, by whom they were carefully 
mounted and bound, and in whose library they have since been preserved. 

The first page of the record contains this endorsement with its date, both 
in hand-writing unknown. '"A Register of Marriages in Milton from 14 Sept. 
16S6 to Sept. 1727, By Rev. Peter Thacher. Taken out of a volume of his 
Diary found among the papers of the late Rev Dr. Peter Thacher of Boston, 
his great graudson. Feb. 18u3. " 

It is probable that the record of the larger portion of these marriages does 
not exist elsewhere, or in any other form. It isxiertain that of the tirst thirty 
of the list, Savage had found but six, and of these six, one was doubtful. 
The importance of the record, for the first time now printed, is evident to 
genealogists. 

The Rev. Peter Thacher was born at Salem, Mass., 18 July, 1651. the son 
of the Rev. Thomas Thacher of Weymouth and Boston. He was graduated 
at Harvard College in 1671, ordained in the ministry over the church at 
Milton 1 June, 1681, and died there greatly lamented and beloved, 27 Dec. 
1727, after a pastorate of forty-six years. An account of his labors and useful- 
ness may be read in Sibley's Graduates II. 370, and a genealogy of a frag- 
ment in the family in the ;^^. E. Hist. Gm. Reg. xxxviii. 13.
