Benjamin Nurse's Timeline

1666
January 26, 1666
Town of Salem, Essex County, Massachusetts Bay Colony

As with most people from this period, the actual date of birth of Benjamin Nurse to father Francis and mother Rebecca Nurse is unrecorded. His actual birth likely took place one or two months before this date.

(A note on English "double dates" - the old English calendar before 1752 used to change year on March 25. The first date indicated the English year, which differed between January 1 and March 24 from what the rest of the world followed. As what appeared to be some sort of compromise, English officials would double date their documents, and the rest of English society followed. Because the computer date system inflexibly changes years only on January 1, in order to maintain a proper chronology, the second date should be used.)
