    I thought about translating to English but I'm really bad on that, I do very literal. But basically we have the date in the beginning then it says the Judge for Marriage (João de Paços de Magalhães) gave the authorization for the marriage.
    They welcome to the church (the one the record came from) Manoel Ferreira and Antónia do Espirito Santo (Holy Ghost can be part of the name or just a religious appendix to the name). It says who are their parents and which parish they lived (Manoel: parish of Santa Engrácia, Antónia: the parish where the church belongs).
    They justified that she came as a minor (probably younger than 18 years old) and he didn't have any obligation (married) and it was followed the Council of Trent rules and Archbishopric constitution.
    The witness were the Priest Manoel Godinho, António and others.

    I believe the signatures are from the priest (Manoel Godinho), António (An.to da Silva) and someone else (da Costa). If you have any doubt just contact me, it was a pleasure to work on that."
