Strange surname
« on: Thursday 01 January 15 19:40 GMT (UK) »
I have been trying to make sense of the married surname of Susannah Hannam, it is the fourth line down in the attached snip and reads "Sister Susannah ?????????? formally ". I think the missing word reads HIDY****OCK but I may be wrong . Does any body have any idea what the surname could be?

Thanks Steve
Hannam in London, Nottinghamshire and Sheffield
Collins in Staffordshire
Brackenbury, Gurnell and Willson in Lincolnshire and now Nottinghamshire
Marples in Derbyshire and Yorkshire
Heginbotham in Derbyshire

Looks a bit like Hidgecock to me.

Hidgecock from me too - possibly a variant or phonetic representation of Hitchcock?

I think it starts with an "L" comparing the same capital letters in the names at William and Elizabeth Lockyer and there's a very clear "d" in there, the writers letter d's are all curved back towards the left.

If you look at the H in Hannam, the middle of the second line, it looks very much like an H.

I agree with the H - and I do know of a Mr Hedgecock, a relative of an old friend.  :-\

That was the reason for my guess too.
