I can read some of it, but donít have pen and paper to write it down and then type it here.

These things are best posted on Handwriting Deciphering board, I think, to get them noticed.

There would seem to be another letter inbetween the 'leger' and 'wood' of the surnames of these children every time (4) it is written.
Possibly a 't' or an 'l' - he is not very good at 'crossing his ts'.
So probably 'ledgertwood'.

The witnesses are arthur Petrie of Newseal (?)
and James Urquhart in Burngrains.

(I can't see 'burgesses' in here).

Note both these place names quite difficult to make out the letters. You may have to do some searching around.
Lane, Burgess: Cheshire. Finney, Rogers, Gilman:Derbys
Cochran, Nicol, Paton, Bruce:Scotland. Bertolle:London
Bainbridge, Christman, Jeffs: Staffs
