So we can compare Arthur's

The vicar uses a different A in his own name.  :-\
Today I broke my personal record for most consecutive days alive.

Thanks for the help. Yes I do believe Arthur invented a farther. That's why I was thinking maybe he left a clue to the real last name in the form of that middle name. Why else put a middle name in a fake name?  I believe the William parton who is the witness is either his cousin or possibly uncle (his mother Elizabeth had a brother William Parton who had a son William...whose daughter is the Alice Margaret).
