Hi can anyone decipher what the number at the end of the marriage of Batholomew Ballantine & Anne Mulloy on NLI register at Cootehall, Roscommon on 19 feb 1844 mean please? Thank you.

  • Fionn,

    I attach a copy of the relevant entry - No. 19 close to No 20.

    I have been unable to decipher the numbers. I have not seen similar before.

    Ash Wednesday in 1844 was February 21. There were 27 marriages in Cootehall from February 12-20. Possibly those numbers had nothing to do with Bartholomew and Anne but rather they were a summary of money collected for celebrating the marriages.
