Marriage of Jozef Kuzba and Marianna Pluskota (1811)
This is my translation of the Polish language marriage record of Józef Kuźba and Marianna Pluskota, from the Broniewo Parish. Any errors are completely my own.
This happened on November 16th, 1811. Before Us, the undersigned Registrar of Vital Records of the District of Broniewo, Radziejów County, Bydgoszcz Department:
Józef Kuźba appeared, single, with the assistance of his mother Małgorzata Pluskota – who lives with her daughter in the village of Piecki, aged ?, according to a certificate excerpted from the books of the Sobowo Parish,
as well as Marianna Pluskota, single, daughter of Paweł Pluskota – peasant farmer residing in the village of Szóstka, aged 15, according to a certificate excerpted from the books of the Broniewo Parish, she resides with her family.
The parties who appeared request that we proceed with the celebration of the wedding they have arranged between them, the announcement of which was published before the main doors of our District Court, that is: first on the 3rd of November, and the second on the 10th of November, 1811, at 12 p.m. When we were not informed of any obstacles to the aforementioned marriage, and the parents here in attendance hereby consent, acquiescing to the aforementioned request, after reading to the parties and witnesses all the aforementioned papers and Section Six of the Civil Code regarding marriage, we asked the future husband and future wife whether they wished to join with each other in marital union, and when each of them responded separately that such is their wish, we proclaim in the name of the law that Józef Kuźba, single, and Marianna Pluskota, single, are joined in the bonds of matrimony.
Of which we recorded this record in the presence of: Adam Kuźba, aged 32, residing in Szóstka; Piotr Sobieraj, aged 55, a peasant farmer residing in Szóstka; Wawrzyniec Pluskota, aged 46, a contractor visiting Broniewo; and Roch ?, aged 43, an organist in the Broniewo Parish. This document was read aloud to the declarants and witnesses and signed by us who can write, because those appearing and the witnesses mentioned in this document cannot write.
Rev. Bartłomiej Rożychowicz, Pastor of the Broniewo Parish and Civil Registrar.
