Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: Need help deciphering 'Denuntiationes'
« on: Monday 29 November 21 22:35 GMT (UK)  »
It does look like ‘Dispensed, fine paid’, but I believe dispensations are (or should be) free of charge, so perhaps not.

I think Dispensed, from parish may be right, indicating that a dispensation for marrying without banns was granted by the parish priest, not by a higher authority such as a vicar-general or bishop.

I think it will be 56 lbs (pounds, in weight), not 5 shillings.

ADDED - sorry, craggagh, I didn't see your post.

I am looking for the original copy of a short will in PROB 10 for the will of James WOODS of Magdalen Street Saint Johns Bermondsey proved 12 May 1812.

PM sent.

ADDED - it looks like at least one line (between lines 6 and 7) has dropped out during the copying process.

Looks to me like gastritis. Can you find another word on the page that starts with g, for comparison?

The Common Room / Re: Fathers not named on marriage certificates - laziness?

Justin, this doesn’t help, but I have half a dozen certificates from Belgrave Street where the fathers’ details were not completed.

Would it be worth trying for a copy of the authorisation? I believe the Beth Din do hold some authorisations from provincial synagogues dating from outside the time-frame of their online database. Even if there is no father named, there might be a brother? Just a thought.

I agree it is written Clirow. Modern spelling is Clyro. 8 miles from Talgarth, near Hay-on-Wye.
