Vital Records Book 3, 1843-1861, page 77B. 47 early marriages from the1770s-1790s that had previously been recorded somewhere else were copiedinto this book and certified as true copies on the facing pages 77A and77B, following the marriages of 1852, by the then Town Clerk of Wmsb.Despite personally photocopying all the known surviving vital records ofWilliamsburg in the custody of the present Clerk, I have never found theplace where these marriages were *originally* recorded, so the copies arenow the only official record of them.
