It looks rather like Jun'r, but it's a bit too faint to be 100% certain. Any clues in the 1871 census?
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson

I wonder if they popped his occupation down for some reason - it looks a bit, but not exactly, like painter  :-\

Never seen a witness occupation before but there's always a first time!

I think that it is junior as well - looking at the original online it seems to be jun with a flourish at the end possibly for an r.

I think it most likely is "junior". Thanks for all your help.
