I, Jakub Pilchowski, Canon Regular of the Laterans, Promotor of the Most Holy Rosary, on the 4th day of October  baptized a female child with the name Franciszka, daughter of the legally married couple the Noble Adam Chotkowski and Julianna née Bieńkowska his wife. The Godparents in the Sacred Font were the Noblewoman Marcianna Mosakowska and Michał Modzelewski.
Franciszka Chodkowska was my 3rd cousin 5X removed.
The first named Godparent, Marcianna Mosakowska, is described in this record as “Gnosa Domina” which is an abbreviation for the Latin phrase “Generosa Domina”. “Generosa” can be translated as “Noble” and “Domina” may be translated as “Lady”. Thus, I have translated the phrase “Generosa Domina” as “Noblewoman”.
