      Don't know if this is the right James Staples; but it's the right place and time to be him. Son, James, was born 1775 in Biddeford. Could be the male under 16. Don't have any info on the two females -- presumably a wife and daughter.

      Feb. 30, 1755 James Staple and Mary Gray, both of Biddeford.

      Note: The actual text does say "Feb. 30". Sometimes the original records said words to the effect "the last day of the month." Perhaps that was what occurred here and the transcriber wrote Feb. 30, instead of Feb. 28.
