Birth location Keppochhill, Possilpark, Glasgow
« on: Wednesday 11 July 18 14:45 BST (UK) »
Attached are the birth details of Alexander Morton, born 24 May 1870, Keppochhill, Maryhill Parish.
I cannot decipher or find anything similar to the 2 lines above Keppochhill.
The second line in question looks like it could be Money's Land or Honey's land but I have absolutely no idea what the other line says.
As always, any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.

It's definitely Money's land, that name is on the street indexes for the 1871 census for the Keppochhill area, not sure as to what the line above is though.

The other line isn't a place, it's the time of birth which is routinely recorded on Scottish certificates.

I'd say it's '5h. 0m. A.M.'  Five in the morning!

Thanks to all who responded - was getting a bit concerned when I saw how often the post had been viewed without a suggestion!
On viewing some of the other birth registers I have I can see now that the time is always added under the date.
Thanks again.
