1683 Dublin burial register
« on: Sunday 22 March 15 01:15 GMT (UK) »
Hello,  I'm trying to establish a connection to the "Daniell McCleane" listed in this burial register occuring Nov. 13, 1683 (in the right column). He was a soldier in an army regiment and I'm trying to positively decipher his Captain's name. At first glance it looks like it says "Merishop" but I believe it could be Morrison.  The writer seems to make lower case "O" and "E" almost identical fyi.  Thank you to anyone who can help.

Identifying the Captain's name and going through the Irish army lists of the 1680s will lead me to this man's regiment.

It reads

... one of Capt. Morishes Company ...

(implying the Captain's name was MORISH)
