Looks like Souldier
Cant see any place in Staffordshire like that

Can we see a slightly bigger snippet, to get the context?

I see souldier.
Are you sure it's a place-name? Could it be an occupation i.e. soldier?
As liz says, we need a bigger snip  :)

I see souldior.
Wiki says it is an obsolete etymology for soldier.

ahhh.... i read it as (wedding resistration in uttoxeter 1699) edward millington OF 'souldios. ill re check, because i was assuming it was a place name not an occupation.

cheers! :)
