There are three main families with historical information in this bible. The first and main family are the Rudds starting with the marriage of Captain Nathaniel Rudd to Rebekah Waldo in 1709. The entries continue up through 1812. Along the way an Alice Adams (1802) and a Polly Carew (1813) married into the family. The next few pages of genealogical entries follow these lines. The Carew pages (dating from the early 1700s, starting with Abigail and Thomas Carew) have been attached to the bible, and appear to possibly have been removed from a different bible and added here. The Adams pages have also been attached and appear to be all the same hand (a more modern hand) making a genealogical list of the Adams from 1723 to 1826 (perhaps these were copied out of yet another bible?) The Adams also start in the early 1700s and includes a short history of the early family and their land in Lisbon (Mass?). It’s hard to know exactly how all these pages came together but it’s easy to trace the family lineages. There are several other names including a group of Fitches
