1833 Marriage Record in Tocco, Chieti

Post by JOHN08 » 24 Oct 2015, 04:32

On the 26th of January 1833, in Tocco, district of Chieti, province of Abruzzo, appeared Felice Antonio Raulli, 25, shoemaker, born in Tocco, living in Tocco, son of Egidio Raulli, shoemaker, living in Tocco; also son of Crocifissa Raulli, profession ?, living in Tocco.

Also appeared Maria Domenica Santillo, 22, weaver, born in Tocco, living in Tocco, daughter of Francesco Santillo, peasant farmer, living in Tocco, and daughter of Antonia Francazio, spinner, living in Tocco.

Felice Antonio and Maria Domenica were married on the 27th of January 1833 by the pastor of the mother church in Tocco.

How do I find the name of the “mother church” for Tocco?

Appreciate any additions/corrections.

Crocifissa Raulli was a "cucitrice" = seamstress

The marriage was celebrated the same day (26th of January). The 27 is the date the Parish priest returned the copy of the marriage promise with the annotation of the marriage.

The parish Church should be
Parroccchia S. Eustachio
Piazza S. Eustachio
65028 Tocco Da Casauria (PE)

Note that now Tocco is part of the Pescara Province.
