Elizabeth Russell's Timeline

1665
January 2, 1665
Town of Salem, Essex County, Massachusetts Bay Colony

As with most people from this period, Elizabeth's' actual date of birth to father Francis and mother Rebecca Nurse is unrecorded. Her actual birth likely took place within one or two months of her recorded baptismal date of January 9, 1664/1665. The infant had three older brothers (a young man named John - age 19, an older boy named Samuel, and a toddler named Francis - age 3), and three older sisters (a young woman named Rebecca - age 17, an older girl named Sarah - age 13, and a young girl named Mary - age 5).

January 2, 1665
Town of Salem, Essex County, Massachusetts Bay Colony

As with most people from this period, the actual date of birth of Elizabeth Nurse (future Elizabeth Russell) to father Francis and mother Rebecca is unrecorded. Her 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.)
