Sophia's line ends with 19 Yrs & upwds (ie upwards).

I can't make out what's after St Paul, but quite possibly a place name, and maybe abbreviated. Where did the marriage take place (assuming it did)?
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson

The marriage was in Bristol, 4 Apr 1797
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NFTF-X5C

St Pauls, Portland Square, Bristol

What does look like " in P " - could it be P for "Portland"?

Or be taken to mean John Parker is "of this Parish" and that's also part of the 'ditto' for Sophia and her father?

It looks to me like Spr (spinster) after the ditto. Which may make the P a Wd after St Paul....but can't see widower, and he's only 31 or is he 32?
