EXPLANATIONS 

1. When places other than Tisbury and Massachusetts are 
named in the original records, they are given in the printed copy. 

2. In all records the original spelling is followed. 

3. The various spellings of a name should be examined, as 
items about the same family or individual might be found under 
different spellings. 

4. Marriages and intentions of marriages are printed under 
the names of both parties. When both the marriage and in- 
tention of marriage are recorded, only the marriage record is 
printed ; and where a marriage appears without the intention 
recorded, it is designated with an asterisk. 

5. Additional information which does not appear in the origi- 
nal text of an item, i.e., any explanation, query, inference, or 
difference shown in other entries of the record, is bracketed. 
Parentheses are used to show the difference in the spelling of a 
name in the same entry, to indicate the maiden name of a wife, 
to enclose an imperfect portion of the original text, and to separate 
clauses in the original text — such as the birthplace of a parent 
in late records.
