Chesterfield is located in Hampshire County, Massachusetts. Incorporated as a town in 1762, it was formerly a plantation known as "New Hingham." Surrounding towns presently include Goshen, Williamsburg, Westhampton, Huntington, Worthington and Cummington.

 

For this collection, six volumes of Chesterfield vital records were filmed, spanning the years from 1762 to 1892. Also filmed were several files of small index cards derived from the vital records.
