A Supplement to the Barbour Index

 The Barbour Collection of the Vital Records of Connecticut has a well-deserved reputation as one of the most complete and accurate state-wide indexes of its kind.  As a transcription, however, it is subject to error and omission.  For death records in Newtown from 1797 to 1821 this is compounded by the fact that the indexed vital records are themselves transcribed from the Bills of Mortality first entered in the land record books.  This report lists those deaths where original sources provide more accurate or more complete information than appears in Barbour.  But first a general description of the early records of Newtown. 

Vital Records

 As in other Connecticut towns, the earliest vital records for Newtown, beginning with the town's settlement in 1711, were recorded in the one official volume together with minutes of town meetings, deeds, earmarks, and records of strays.  In a few years, when town minutes were segregated from land records, the clerk began to record the vital records in the land records or deed books.  In addition, most entries in that first town volume were transcribed into these deed books.

 Vital listings entered in Land Record Volume 2 (LR2) are interspersed with deeds, and remain in that volume.  Those vital records entered on separate pages at the end of Land Record Volumes 3-4 (a single volume), 8, 10, and 11, were later removed and bound together in what is now called Vital Records Volume 1 (VR1).  These early records usually show family groupings, often giving the parents' marriage date and then listing the births of their children.  Deaths are sometimes included.  Dates as early as 1702 appear for some vital events which occurred in Stratford, Milford, and other towns of origin for the Newtown settlers.

 From a 1915 transcription by James N. Arnold, these Newtown vital records were indexed as part of the Barbour Collection of Vital Records.  Copies of the index volume for Newtown are available at the Connecticut State Library, the Newtown clerk's office, and other repositories.  Except as noted here, the index is quite complete, referring to volumes of the Proprietors Records (PR) and Land Records (LR) as well as to the Vital Records (VR) proper.

From a search of these records, no marriages and only one birth was found for which the original or its accurate transcription is not included in Barbour.  In PR 1:1 this reads, "Mabell Booth daughter of Jon[a]th[an] Booth by Esther his wife born in Newtown on ye 13 day of December Anno Domini 1722."

 At a later date, and beyond the scope of this report, Newtown researchers should be aware that vital records for the years 1848 to 1852 appear in three volumes, including one which is clearly a transcription.  One might expect these records to be indexed in Barbour, but many are omitted entirely, and there is much detail missing from others.  A complete new transcription may be the subject of a future article.

 Bills of Mortality

 Beginning in 1797, a separate list was maintained for Newtown deaths.  These, the original Bills of Mortality for 1797 through 1821, are entered in the front of Land Record Volumes 19, 20, and 27.  For an unknown reason, there is no record here or elsewhere for 1802.  Such original Bills of Mortality for the years 1822 to 1844 have not been found and, since they had been transcribed, may have been discarded when the early land record volumes were rebound later in the 19th century.

 Isaac Beers, town clerk from 1844 to 1847, transcribed the original Bills of Mortality, including the now-missing 1822 to 1844, into the book now called Vital Records Volume 2 (VR2), starting from the back of that book.  In 1806, 1834, and several years between these dates he added his name at the bottom of the lists which are all in his hand until 1847 when he was succeeded.  The new clerk, Henry Sanford, completed the 1847 list and, in 1848, began a vital records book in a new format.  In making his transcriptions, Isaac Beers omitted some details, including causes of death, ages, and family relationships.  He made just a few errors, and he omitted just a few names.  Also, in a later rebinding, a leaf for 1799 and most of 1800 has been lost from his transcription.

 The Barbour Collection indexes some, but not all, of the original entries from LR19 & 20 (1797-1812) as well as the transcribed VR entries, but here also some details and a few entire entries are omitted.  Barbour does not index the original entries from LR27 (1813-1821) but only the VR transcription for this period.  Curiously, Barbour invariably translates black or negro to "colored", the politically correct term of the early 20th century 

Additional details may be found in a private Bill of Mortality kept from 1797 through 1863 by Henry Beers, a cousin of our clerk Isaac.  This manuscript record is located in the vault of the Cyrenius H. Booth Library in Newtown.  From 1797 to 1818 the entries are merely transcriptions from the town records, rarely adding information.  However, beginning in 1819, Henry seems to have kept records from personal knowlege, adding age and cause of death to most entries, though the town records do not report these details on a regular basis until 1825.  He also adds the deaths of a few non-residents.

 The most common cause of death reported by Henry Beers was consumption, abbreviated "cons."  He uses "dys." for dysentery, perhaps typhoid fever, in the epidemic of September-October 1820 which killed 20 Newtown residents including John Curtis, whose wife was just four years dead, and four of his children ages 11 to 20.  It also killed four young children and the wife of Agur Blackman, though Blackman survived to remarry in 1822.

 Emended Death Records

 Presented here is an alphabetized list of deaths from the original Bills of Mortality appearing in the deed books.  Included are all records which correct or add detail to entries in the Barbour Collection.  From a total of some 700 deaths in this 25-year period, there are about 35 omitted from Barbour or so altered there as to change the basic import.  There are also some 250 with added details, about half of these from the Henry Beers manuscript.

 Sources are as follows:

         •  LR 14 endsheet                              Deaths 1786-1787 (three entries only)

         •  LR 19 (front of volume)                  Deaths 1797-1799

         •  LR 20 (front of volume)                  Deaths 1800-1812

         •  LR 27 (front of volume)                  Deaths 1813-1821

         •  Henry Beers manuscript                Ages and causes of death, especially 1819-1821

 Death records missing or altered substantially in Barbour are marked "x".  Those which add data or small differences to the Barbour index are marked "+".  Such additional details may include relationships (son or daughter of…), marital status of women, age at death, and cause of death.  Unmarked in this list are a very few correct entries from Barbour for comparisons of interest with other family deaths.  Minor discrepancies in spelling or in death date (at most a day or two) are not noted.  When provided by Henry Beers or VR, [bracketed] names are added to the unnamed "wife or daughter of…" or as the optional surnames of negroes.  All Beers references are to the private record of Henry Beers.  Those few entries where the vital r ecords transcription adds information are indicated by the phrase "VR adds…"
