I think 24 for her, 28? for him.

Is the smaller image from the marriage register?

That one could be ffawx.

I wouldn't want to be dogmatic about her surname in the Marriage Bond.

I think the smaller was from another marriage and it was suggested it was a similar spelling. 

I would like to be dogmatic about the surname as Rebecca is my 7th great grandmother.

I want to raise the possibility that she has a long surname of at least two words, and that it ends before the word Singlewom(a)n.

The short word looks to be de, commonly used in Latin entries of all kinds for of (the parish of _____).

However there's no other Latin in this entry.

So does the surname end with:  de ?esford or de ?isford

It  is only a suggestion.  I'd be interested to hear what others think.

I think the surname is Hare and then it says "de Desford"....of Desford.
