Not easy to see on the first line ribbo, but on the next line it reads 'Ethel Seviar'.

This page says an Ethel Seviar was baptised 14th Feb 1630 at Wedmore Somerset,
Needs following up I'd say.

Just re-read your post.
I thought you just wanted Ethel's surname.

The whole thing says:
Richard Lukins & Ethel Seviar in the market towne of Claston
the 31th day of Jane 1655 were maried Richard Lukins & Ethel Seviar bothe of
this p(ar)ishe before                   Willi(am) Smith


I think the date is 1655 - could be 1659, but no doubt you have the page from which this was taken and have the correct date.
I think the town is Claston. The first letter could be G. Are there any other 'C's or 'G's on the page to compare?

Hi Goldie,

Thanks for your help.The year is defintely 1655 as it shows at the top of the page.

Unfortunately the whole of the page is written as per the sample and I cannot see another entry starting
with either a "C" or "G"

I've looked at the list of parishes for Som but cannot find one that matches.

It's pretty clearly a G.

In Secretary hand G is mostly characterized by a semi-circular shape at the top-right corner of the letter, as found here (touching the l). 

See the samples here:

There are no obscure market towns, so if there's not one just called Glaston, it must be as Arthur says.
