Salut !

I looked one more place, and I think I found it ! And, the mayor spelled your name your way on the original record : Descaray ! (I found it indexed as : Escaray - Ah-hah !)

The digitized image of this original record is available at the website I gave you at the bottom of my previous message. So, I looked for it and found it. The original marriage certificate is extensive, about 1-1/2 pages. Here is my extraction for you :

Archives départementales des Pyrénées-Atlantique
Image : Verdets (no. 643/1231)

État Civil - Acte de mariage (Civil marriage)
Date de l'acte (date of marriage) : 25 Nov 1852
Lieu de l'acte (place of marriage) : Verdets (Pyrénées-Atlantique)

SUJET (groom) : DESCARAY Jean
Père (father) : DESCARAY Pierre (70 ans / years old)
Mère (mother) : SAFFORE Marguerite (décédée à / died in LUCQ-DE-BEARN on 29 Jan 1835)
Agé (age of groom) : 26 ans / years old
Date de naissance (groom's birthdate) : -- (not recorded)
Lieu de naissance (groom's birthplace) : LUCQ-DE-BEARN
Domicilié (groom's residence) : LAUCÈDE (?? possibly in Archdiocese of Narbonne, Saint-Jacques-de-Laucède - stated in 3 places)
Métier (groom's occupation) : Domestique (household servant)
Métier Père (father's occupation) : Journalier (day laboureur)

CONJOINT (bride) : MALERODE Marguerite
Père (father) : INCONNU (Unknown - Illegitimate birth)
Mère (mother) : MALERODE Marie
Agée (age of bride) : 27 ans / years old
Date de naissance (bride's birthdate) : 15 Fev 1825
Lieu de naissance (bride's birthplace) : VERDETS
Domicilié (bride's residence) : VERDETS
Métier (bride's occupation) : -- (not recorded)

Témoins (witnesses) :
1. Jean-Pierre Boylocq, 27 years old
2. Laurens Casaux, 48 years old, day laborer
3. Jean Cayala, 48 years old, carpenter
4. Jean Ypes, 44 years old, elementary school teacher

Neither the groom nor bride signed their names (probably illiterate), but all four witnesses signed with the mayor of Verdets.


I hope this is your record, but if it is not, no problem.

I will keep my fingers crossed for you !

Bien amicalement !
