It happened in the village of Gzy on the twenty-seventh / fifteenth day of November of the one-thousand eight-hundred thirty-sixth year at the hour of twelve noon there appeared Paweł Wiśniewski, twenty-six years of age, earning a living from day labor in the village of Łady Zalesie, in the presence of Jan Wiśniewski, thirty-four years of age, earning a living from day labor in the village of Ostaszewo Włuski and Jan Satkowski, thirty-eight years of age, earning a living by [Kopczyzny?] in the village of Żebry falbogi, and he showed a child of the male sex, born in Łady Zalesie on the twenty-eighth day of September of the same year at the hour at the hour of eight in the morning of Rozalia Burska, thirty-two years of age, his wife. To this child at Holy Baptism performed today was given the name Ignacy, and his Godparents were the aforementioned Jan Wiśniewski and Agnieszka Satkowska. This document was read to the declarant and witnesses and by us signed – The father and witnesses do not know how to write – R[everend] Baltazar Prusiński, Vicar of the Parish of Gzy
Ignacy’s father, Paweł, was a day laborer. Unlike his wife, Rozalia Burska, he was not born to a noble family. Since nobility was passed from father to son, none of his children were of noble birth, despite Rozalia’s noble birth.
