The Nobility of Demeter Szük in 1690

Yesterday, I was able to obtain a written transcription from the 1730's of the 1690 patent of nobility that was issued to my 8th-great-grandfather, Demeter Szük. He was granted the nobility on 09 Jun 1690 by King Lipót I of Hungary, and was later recorded in Nagy-Ida, Abaúj county, Hungary on 11 Jan 1691. The four following images are copies of the transcription written in the 1730's. It has some great information on it! :)
