15. Głowko and [Mosaki] Rukle. This happened in the church-owned village of Krasne on the twenty-fourth day of November in the year one-thousand eight-hundred thirty at the hour of two in the afternoon. We make it known in the presence of witnesses Tomasz Ossowski, owner of a part in Głowko and residing there, forty-three years of age, and Piotr Grabowski, owner of a part and residing in Kułki, forty-nine years of age, brother-in-law of Błażej Chodkowski who is named below, on this day a religious marriage was contracted between Błażej Chodkowski, a young man residing with his family in Rukle, having been born in [Mosaki] Rukle of the married couple Jan Chodkowski and Józefa née Grzybowska and residing there, nineteen years of age, and the young woman Józefa, daughter of the married couple Wojciech Gożdziewski and Anna née Kierzkowska, residing in Głowko, eighteen years of age, residing in Głowko with her family and with her parents. This wedding was preceded by three readings of the banns on the seventh, fourteenth, and twenty-first days of November in the same year in the parish of Krasne, as well as the oral consent of the parents of the newlyweds who were present for the marriage record. No impediments to the marriage arose. The newlyweds stated that they had made a premarital contact on the eighteenth day of November of the present year before Antoni Niski, [Regent and Chancellor?].

Błażej Chodkowski was my 1st cousin, 5X removed.
Of particular interest is the fact that Błażej Chodkowski and Józefa Gożdziewska had made a prenuptual agreement on 18 November 1830. Most Polish marriage records report that “The newlyweds stated that they had made no prenuptual agreement between them”.
