Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / faded ink on baptism entry 1701
« on: Wednesday 29 April 20 02:48 BST (UK)  »
Hello,
Would anyone be able to please have a guess at what the faded writing is after "A son of John Strange and Katherine his wife was born December 12/13 - 1701 and was baptised, and was interred? December 28 1701 ..."

Any ideas for the last line on the page?

Thanks in advance.

I've added another view trying to make it a bit clearer.
