explanation #5, p. 4

5. Marriages and intentions of marriage are printed in full under the names of the men. The names of the women are used *in general* only as cross references. When both the marriage and the intention of marriage are recorded, only the marriage record is printed with exceptions explained below; and where a marriage appears without the intention being recorded, it is designated with an asterisk.
Marriages marked with a + are recorded in the "Town Copy", pages 391-392, under the caption, "A Record of Marriage Supposed to have been performed by Rev. John Emerson at the dates indicated in the margin." The marginal dates are the same as the first dates of corresponding intentions which appear as follows: "June 29th 1792 Marriage is intended...20th July 1792 the above has been Published."
