I have tried every combination of tools I can think of in my limited programme and this is as good as I can get it. I think a little clearer but still hard to read. I hope somebody can improve on my effort for you.

Hi

If you could give full details of the 1841 page that you have posted and the particular details that you are interested in, I'm sure that we could help by either improving/enlarging* the particular piece and/or  interpret the page for you.

*Added - it is possible to download a much bigger image than the one you've uploaded.

Just to add to Gadget's suggestion - the image on FindMyPast is slightly better than the one on Ancestry  :o
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!

Looking at your other query on the McPhersons, the person on the top of the page is a Charles McPherson, aged 4, and Gillies McPherson, aged 1. Both b. Westminster.
The previous page shows head of household as a Thomas McPherson, 35, tailor, b. Scotland and wife Elizabeth.
