I found the phrase "med hand i pennan" in a marriage record. It seems the father of the bride gave permission for her to marry. Am I correct in guessing that this phrase means that he did not sign his name by himself?
See Sireköpinge kyrkoarkiv, Lysnings- och vigselböcker, SE/LLA/13337/E I/1 (1862-1894), bildid: 00113543_00007.https://sok.riksarkivet.se/bildvisning/00113543_00007
I could not find this phrase in my dictionary. Thanks in advance for any help.
