In the second of these two marriage entries, is Jenckes the given name of the bride's father, or is it a place name, please?

Never mind, I've found a baptism for a Jenckes Hopkins at Scituate in 1767 so it looks to be the father's given name.

I did some of the same records and I think some times it was the town name but sometimes the father.

I was confused on how to code "intentions". Sometimes it didn't have a m. date. The int. date was always before the marriage date and sometimes stated that is was published. If it just had int. I left the date blank on the form.
