p. 52 BATEMAN, William ( -1658) & __?__; b 1615; Concord/Milford, CT / Fairfield, CT
p. 52 BATEMAN, Thomas (1615-1669) & 1/wf Martha [BROOKS], dau Henry; b 1638?, b 1645; Concord, MA
p. 507 MIDDLEBROOK, Joseph1 (-1686) & 1/wf __?__ [BATEMAN]; b 1650; Fairfield, CT
The "b 1615" and "b 1650" refer to the birthyear of the first known child, as an indicator of approximate year of marriage.  Locations are the husband's known residences, ending with his place of death.  Brackets indicate the source is something other than a marriage record.
