Same Bride and Groom - Different Parents

Post by rp76226 »

I have two church records for the marriage of Angela di Puma and Francesco Lo Sardo that are only one day apart. In both cases, the fathers have the same names, but the mothers have different names. That seems very unusual. Are they really the same marriage, not two different marriages? See the links below (several marriages on two page spreads; look for red horizontal line) with translations under them:

The second image (record #643) appears to be the publication of banns. It indicates that first banns posted 11 June 1848, and second banns on (cant read number) August 1848.
The recorded entry is dated the same day as the marriage - 27 August 1848.

I cannot explain why the surname of Francescos mother is different. Everything else appears to be the same.

Not only the groom's mother's maiden name is different, but also the bride's mother's maiden name is different.

The town is Racalmuto in Agrigento, Sicily. Unfortunately, the civil records for the year 1848 are missing.
