Musto, Rinaldo matrimoni

Postby oilman19 » 12 Aug 2010, 21:57

I am struggling with some parts of this Atti di Matrimonio. :( I need some guidance.

On 6 May 1876, Luigi Rinaldo 21 born in Melito di Napoli of ???? and Sabata Chiariello married Marta Musto 34?? born in SMCV of Lorenzo and Luigia Sbordone in SMCV.

Aside from not being able to read the given name of the groom's father, is it likely that a 21 year old man is marrying a 34 year old woman? Also, I have Luigia born abt 1826 from previous documents and having children between 1854-1859. This would mean she started having children in 1842 at age 16. While I know none of this is impossible, how likely is it.

Any help and/or opinions?

Hi Jim,

I'm not seeing "Napoli" after Melito.
I AM seeing "sudetto" after Melito (each time after the first Melito), and also after S. Maria (each time after the first S. Maria). "Sudetto" means "as stated"...

You have Maria's age correct at 34, and Luigi's age is correct at 21. As to whether that was common...not really...but not unheard of.

As to having children at 16...very likely. Girls could have been married at 13 with parental consent (usually with parents wanting a "good" match).

Groom's father's name looks like Stefano to me. :-?

From Rudolph Bell's book"

"Female villagers (at least those who are not substantially older than their husbands) give two reasons for marriage by a younger man to an older woman: (1) the nuptial arrangement gave primacy to matters of inheritance; (2) the older woman was pregnant."

It goes on to state:
"...landowners, and to a lesser degree shopkeepers, artisans, and town officials were far more likely to marry women older than themselves than were agricultural workers."

That being said...I wasn't able to read Luigi's occupation...have you?

I picked up the "di Napoli" from my Google search. Do you think they are 2 different places?
I wanted to make it Stefano but couldn't get "St" out of those 1st 2 letters. The "S" doesn't seem to match any other capital "S" in the document. However, I haven't any other solution.

Thank you T.

I agree, the ST is a guess...the "efano" looks clearer..

That whole word is a mystery to me. :? I've tried every combination of letters and nothing comes close.

Try saving the image from the screen, view it in your computer's picture viewer...you can enlarge quite a bit without much distortion...

I scan in 300 dpi to enable significant enlargement, but I can't make any sense of that word. It has to be a word I have never seen.

Luigi's occupation looks like the word industriante to me. I usually don't see that occupation in that form, but it looks like those letters to me. I also see Stefano for the father's name. Have no idea either what else it could be.
