Early MA records are not held at County level - you will want to visit the MA State Archives at Columbia Point, just south of Boston, reachable by "Red Line" of subway (we call it "The T"). It's just across the parking lot from the JFK Library. Holds Colonial records as well as early state records to about 1900. Has B,M,D, plus wills, probates, and all sorts of amazing stuff! I keep stumbling on Hovey references, though I only recognize the name from a spouse in my tree in mid 1800s... there is a Hovey St. in Waltham, MA, and a Hovey Pond in Grafton, MA, and I know there were Hoveys in Millbury MA in 1850s.
