Marriage document

I believe there were multiple marriages in this document. I would appreciate sorting this out.

Thank you,

Thank you very much for the great translation. Is what looks to be Monte, Monreale?

You're very welcome. Yes, the priests wrote Monte in these records for Monreale. Often in the church records you find that town names, and sometimes even surnames, are spelled differently from how they are written in the civil records. Monreale is actually a contraction of the words Monte and Reale, which means "royal mountain." I understand the reference is to a palace built there by Roger I of Sicily.
