CHAPTER EIGHT

Marriage Document for Humphry Thomson Breakey

         The following document is an apparent Xerox copy of a portion of a record book, most probably from the Public Records Office of Northern Ireland.  It was sent to me 29 Sept 1980 by David McElroy who, at that time, was undertaking genealogical  research for me in Ireland.

          The information provided is contained in a pre-printed format ledger.  For the purpose of this manuscript, the pre-printed information will be rendered in red type; the handwritten information will be rendered in black type. Due to the horizontal orientation of the original document, and the confines of this manuscript’s margins, the entries may at first appear somewhat disjointed to the reader.  I have attempted to avoid this confusion by delineating each horizontal entry via a “bold line.”

           The surname “Breakey” is missing the final “e” in all entries of the name.

          There is an “arrow” drawn from the name Humphry Thompson Breakey [under the Names and (illegible)] column to the name of Humphry Thompson Breakey along side the column titled “Marriage solemnized…” with the concluding point of the arrow indicating the letter “p” in Thompson as x-ed out.

            An image copy of the document  concludes this section.
