Because of the comment in the christening record, I set out to find the marriage information. I search the Arquivo Regoinal da Madeira’s marrage database using the advance search. I entered José in the husband field, 1855 in the year field, and selected Porto Santo from the list of parishes. The search results are found below, with a link to them here:

Husband: José Pedro de Melim
