which is what I thought it was but it came back to me as incorrect.  This is a piece I'm transcribing.
I've looked at it, I've zoomed it, I've fiddled about with the colours and it DOES say Maudsley..... but thats wrong.

What do you mean by "It came back to me as incorrect".  ???  Where from?  An explanation?

Can you provide dates etc and the source of the record you've posted.

We'd all like to help, if we can.

Many thanks,

JAP
