Bethiah Ripley1

b. 4 June 1745
ChartsDescendants of Nicholas Boulton, The Immigrant
Father*Christopher Ripley1 b. Jul 1712
Mother*Sarah Howard1 b. 1714
Birth*4 June 1745Bethiah Ripley was born on 4 June 1745 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1,2,3
Marriage*24 October 1765She married Jabez Bolton of Bridgewater, son of Elisha Bolton and Mary ______, on 24 October 1765 in Easton, Bristol County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England). Their marriage was also recorded in Bridgewater, the groom's home town.1,4,2,5
Research NotesAlmost nothing is known about Bethiah's husband Jabez' mother's identity before she married Elisha Bolton and research is currently in progress trying to discover her maiden name and something about her early life. The Byrams in America sources, both editions, stated that the Jabez Bolton who married Bethiah Ripley in 1767 was the son of "John Bolton" and "Mary Pratt". Unfortunately, no source was cited for the statement. It is uncertain if the John Bolton referred to was supposed to be John Bolton, who was actually Jabez' uncle, or John Bolton, Jabez' older brother. Whichever was meant, both are incorrect. Jabez' father was Elisha Bolton. Jabez' mother's name was Mary, however we have no evidence, and only the clue from this one source, that suggested it may have been "Pratt". Just in case, though, we have begun to look in Plymouth County for potential Mary Pratt candidates. At this point, only one, Mary Pratt born in Scituate in 1708, has been identified as possible. Our plan is to research her family in hope of determining if she and Jabez' mother Mary were the same person.6,7
