Help with occupation please
« on: Saturday 10 November 12 23:56 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for help to read the second line of this text. The name on the first line is John Houston. His occupation is listed as Seaman, but I am trying to read the bit after that.

Any help would be appreciated.

Is it The Bedford Rets - ?where he lived, whatever Rets might be.

I think it's Hannah Hensson
M.S. (maiden surname) Ramage

Can't read the word under her name though.

I'm wondering if it says The Bedford Road??

Also I think it might say 'deceased' under his name  - above Hannah's name?

I gather these are the names of bride's of groom's parents??

Thanks very much for your thoughts folks. Yes it does come from a marriage certificate, parents names John Houston and Hannah Ramage, both deceased. The only bit I can't read is whatever comes in brackets after "Seaman". I thought it was "The Bedford Re?", but I had no success googling that. I didn't think of "Rd". Off for a spot more googling.  ;D

The marriage was registered in Edinburgh, just in case any Midlothian maritime specialists are reading this!

Thanks very much,
