I'm having some trouble making out the surname of the mother of the bride, Marianna. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Just chiming in here. While the record clearly does read "Marantucci", I think the clerk may have made an error, and that the correct name might be "Martucci" which appears in the the town. I don't see any evidence of the surname "Marantucci" The clerk may have got muddled with the given name?

Echoing what Angela said, sometimes a surname will die out in a particular town, but I don't see Marantucci appear as a surname anywhere in Italy.
Researching Gibellina, Sicily surnames Bivona, Bonafede, Zummo, Ponzio, Bevinetto, Beninati, Fontana, Cipolla, Bruno, Manfrè, Lanfranca, and Navarra

Thought I'd revive this thread breifly:

http://dl.antenati.san.beniculturali.it ... ewsIndex=0

Death record for Marianna Maranducci, left #178
I've also found 3 death records for her children that all list her surname as Maranducci. Possibly a surname that died out like bbivona pointed out?

So the plot thickens! Have you tried looking through indices of earlier records to see whether the surnames Mariantucci/Marianducci are listed?

The surname Maranducci did exist as early as 1576. There is a reference in the link below to a Nicolangelo Maranducci who was a notary (Archivio storico per le province napoletane, Vol 5, p. 718).

I have not yet, but given this information from erudita, I'm sure it is somewhere!
