This happened in the village of Mały Płock on the eighteenth day of September in the year one-thousand eight-hundred fifty-eight at the hour of one in the afternoon. There appeared Jakób Dymek, a peasant farmer residing in Piasutno, thirty-two years of age, in the presence of Mikołaj Dymek, thirty-seven years of age, together with Paweł Plona, fifty years of age, both peasant farmers in Piasutno, and he showed Us a child of the male sex, stating that this child was born in Piasutno on the fifteenth day of September in this same year at the hour of twelve at night of his wife Franciszka née Alicka, twenty-eight years of age. To this child at Holy Baptism performed by the Reverend Firmian the Capuchin, on this day was given the name Tadeusz and his Godparents were Mikołaj Dymek and Małgorzata Sędrowska. This document was read aloud to the illiterate declarants and witnesses and was signed by Us.
[signed] The Reverend Franciszek Sakowicz, Pastor of the parish of Mały Płock
I have translated the name of the priest who baptized Tadeusz as the Reverend Firmian the Capuchin. At first I thought Kapucyn was a surname, but because two priests in the same parish (Firmian and Innocenty) both had the apparent surname Kapucyn, I now believe that the two priests were members of the Capuchin Order and had assumed the names of saints when they took their vows.
