Durham St Cuthbert baptism 29 Aug 1858
« on: Sunday 05 September 21 11:42 BST (UK) »
I have a degree in Latin, but am struggling to read some of the words on this note next to the baptism of Joseph Hanley:

Can anyone with more familiarity with Cathlic baptism registers than I have check my transcription and fill in the gaps, please?


Ob. imminens mortis periculum in doms vite baptizatus est die 29 Augusti ad [?]ecam portatus est, ipsique [??] Rob. Orrell sacras ceremonias et [?????] adhibui et Josephi nomen infersui.

I’m no expert , but....

I think the word you’ve got a ?ecam is actually eccam and might be a contraction of ecclesiam

Many thanks.

Yes, I was presuming [?ecam] meant into the church, but couldn't see it!

I now suspect the last word is imposui.

I wonder if what I'd got as vite is actually rite.
