read tricky baptism please
« on: Thursday 03 November 16 14:51 GMT (UK) »
Hello,
Can some one with better eye sight than me cast their eye over this document on FindMyPast
http://search.findmypast.co.uk/record?id=gbprs%2fdev%2f005843757%2f00028&parentid=gbprs%2fdev%2fbap%2f149886

I'm looking at a baptism of William Blackler in Broadhemston Devon.
the transcribed line says 21st March 1727 son of Thomas, can someone verify that for me?
Thanks.
