What does the p.p. stand for?
Can you please share the batch number so we can see the record?
Hi. Some of this old writing is really hard to decipher.
Looking at your batch, I would guess that it refers to witnesses or sponsors. They all come after the parents.
Mar 6 Patricum ex Martin Roach et A Mahon
I would say Patricuum is the son of Martin Roach and A Mahon
Mar 7 Cath A ex Thos Mullay et Cath Lasery
Thank you for your help. I thought that that was probably the case, but it’s good to have a second opinion.
The meaning of the double p is to make the abbreviated word plural, and it stands for godparents, in Latin. Sometimes you will a double s, meaning sponsors, which is the same thing.
