It is not unusual for an older sibling to be a godparent of a younger one.
If you would provide names and location perhaps someone on the list could
check repetoires to see if the godmother later married the godfather.

I have just received a copy of a baptism which was recorded in Protonotaire
Bedford (Fonds) Registres d"Etat Civil in 1869. My question is that it seems
as though the godmother is the unmarried sister of the baptised child, this
sister was the eldest daughter in the family and she would have been about
16 years old at the time of the baptism. Did that sort of thing happen?
I am wondering if the godmother/sister , may have later married the
Any comments appreciated - thanks
