Salem, Essex, Massachusetts, USA

As with most people from this period, Francis' actual birth date is unrecorded. His actual birth to father Francis and mother Rebecca Nurse likely took place within one or two months of his recorded baptismal date of February 3. The infant had two older brothers (a young man named John - age 16, and a boy named Samuel - age 12) and three older sisters (an older girl named Rebecca - age 14, a girl named Sarah - age 10, and a toddler named Mary - age 2).

(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.)
