Miklós was born on 18 Jun 1868 and baptized on 10 Jul 1868, in Kenderes, Jász-Nagy-Kun-Szolnok, Hungary. He was the son of István Horthy de Nagy-Bánya and Paula Halasy de Dévaványa. Make note in his baptismal record of this parent's religions; his father is listed as Reformed and his mother as Roman Catholic.
Although Amália was living in Tiszaroff at the time of her marriage, she was born in a different town: Pánd, Pest-Pilis-Solt-Kis-Kun, Hungary. She was baptized on 26 Jul 1805 and was the daughter of Simon Puky de Bizák and his wife, Borbála Borbély de Tiszaroff. Her residence in Tiszaroff makes sense now, as her mother's family owned land in the town.
Starting from the beginning, I went back to Miklós Horthy's mother, Paula Halasy. She was baptized on 18 Mar 1838 in Kenderes, Jász-Nagy-Kun-Szolnok, Hungary. Her full name listed on her baptismal record is listed as "Paulina Alexandrina Katalin Josepha". She is the daughter of József Halasy de Dévaványa and his wife Erzsébet Gerber. The godparents to her baptism were Ferencz Gerzon and his wife, Baroness Katalin Vay de Vaja.
