Ireland document second page question
Ireland, Mayo—Church Records, 1740–1880 [Part A][MQ96-MRL]
I am unable to see what the second page of this record is. Some look like they
could be baptisms, others maybe a marriage, or a single notation. There are
no dates, as shown on the first page.
Would you all take a look and let me know what needs to be done with the second page?
They are baptisms. The problem is that the book was bound rather tightly, and it is not possible to see the full page.
It appears that the priest (or possibly a clerk, at a later date) has put the date numeral in the righthand margin.0
I don't believe these notations are dates. I think they are monetary notations, meaning 2 pounds, 6 shillings for the service.0
It wouldn't be pounds and shillings. The amounts paid were not so large as to be in pounds. It might be smaller denominations. Ireland in 1846 was tragically poor, with County Mayo one of the hardest hit areas.
In any case, the records are baptisms. You have the month and the year. "Sps" means sponsors (godparents).0
They are indeed baptisms: https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/4255182?availability=Family%20History%20Library

Sometimes it helps to see the roll. I haven't investigated it thoroughly but this particular batch does come under the section:

I believe the first word of each new baptism line (on the second page) is the place name the family resided.0
