Can someone take a look at these Chanceys and help me get them straightened out?

Obviously the dates cannot all be right and who knows about their relation to each other!

I think this might be Chancey-26's marriage, so at least that would be a start:

Zachariah Chancey

Marriage Date:
6 Dec1727

Marriage Date on Image:

Marriage Place:
Perquimans, North Carolina

Residence Place:
Perquimans, North Carolina

Rebecca Pritlowe

Event Type:
Marriage Intention

Monthly Meeting:
Perquimans/Piney Woods Monthly Meeting

Yearly Meeting:
North Carolina Yearly Meeting

Meeting State:
North Carolina

Meeting County:

Source: U.S., Quaker Meeting Records, 1681-1935 on Ancestry. I only have a UK subscription so I can't view the actual image, but somebody with a US subscription could probably tell you if there is any more information on the actual record.

There also appears to be some useful information in North Carolina Wills and Inventories in the will of Edmund Chancey, who I think is Chancey-41. Again you need somebody with a US subscription to see all the pages, but the small bit I can see shows why it is confusing - he leaves some land to his grandson Edmund Chancey son of Stephen Chancey, some other land to his grandson Edmund Chancey son of Jacob Chancey and yet more land to his grandson Edmund Chancey son of Zachariah Chancey. I guess they were all showing how much they loved their father by all naming their sons after him, but it really doesn't make things easy for us!

Thanks so much, Paul, for the helpful info. I have a US Ancestry subscription so will take a look.  I can't work on it tonight but will tomorrow!

Nice find Paul, well done!
