Europe / Help with Latin parish register
« on: Saturday 08 September 18 16:26 BST (UK)  »
Hello everyone

I'm struggling to read my ancestor's baptism record.

He was baptised 18th February 1751 in Houtvenne, Belgium.
Joannes Josephus legitimate son of Francisci Raineri Briffoz and Anna Maria Jonico.
One of the godparents seem to be Anna Maria Briffoz.

I think it says the father comes from Hoij (Huy in the province of Liège). Indeed I found the baptism of another child of the couple in Huy in 1744 and it seems like François Reinier was baptised in Huy himself.

Does it say something about the mother's birthplace? I'm not sure.
Any help much appreciated:-)

I have found the following baptism record for my ancester Joanna Maria Crevecoeur in Leuven St Gertrudis in 1734 but the only thing I can't read or make out is her father's place of birth. Looks like Loixom to me. Any good eyes out there?

I'm sure it's her though, the children's names all match up.
Also in Coventry in 1911, there's a Tuzio family, Domenico and Maria. Could well be her parents. Interesting to see how they struggled with the English when filling out the census return. Gives a real insight.

In fact, I think they're all in Coventry in the 1901 census. Transcribed as Dorinnick on Ancestry. I think more likely it's Dominick, and there's been a language barrier and his first name and surname are mixed up! An Angelina aged 14 is with them.

Getting a copy of the marriage certificate would really clear things up.

I think she's on the 1911 census in Coventry under the name Angelina Williams age 24.
A boarder in her home is called Joseph Matthews, who she may have married in 1936.
Birth place Rome, Italian citizen.
