Help Please with LATIN Banns/Dispensation in Church Records!
« on: Friday 15 December 17 23:28 GMT (UK) »

Hi,

 I am wondering if anyone can help me decipher some references to Banns/Dispensation on
two marriges in church records.


I would like to know what the initials  D.S or D H mean under the heading Denuntiationes on this marriage record - Hoping I will be able to attach two photos....

I think Denuntiationes means Publications  possibly publication of the banns??

The second query also relates to a marriage entry in a church record -   

It says "Dispensaton in 4 & 4  IV ( could be 10) - Con Gratibus"

Does the 4& 4 refer to months maybe?   Not sure if it is 10 or IV after that.

I don't know what the Con Gratibus means?  Is it with guidance???

I originally posted this on the "Cork, Ireland" board but was advised to post it here for the "deciphering Latin experts"!!!

"Dispensaton in 4 & 4  IV ( could be 10) - Con Gratibus"

Dispensatione in 4 & 4to Con(sanguinitatis) Gradibus

Dispensation was granted for 4th-to-4th degrees of consanguinity.

This indicates that the couple were cousins.
