The key word is the first:  uxor

uxor Rob(er)ti Singleton de Brock(h)all gen(erosi)                    }
                                                                                                         }   decembris
sep: apud Samsburie duodecimo die                                          }


The wife of Robert Singleton of Brock(h)all gentleman
was buried at Samsburie on the twelfth day of December


The deceased is not named, unless it is outside the clip in the left margin.

What place is this?  I tried some searches but the supermarket chain dominated the results.

Salmesbury in Lancashire? It might be Salesbury, near Wilpshire in Lancashire. They are all little places near Blackburn and Preston. There's a village called Brockhall.

Could well be, MS.  The l in Salmesbury might be silent.

I did see a Salesbury on the same map, between Salmesbury and Brockhall, just to confuse the matter.

ADDED:

Just saw your additions to the post.  Sorry for the repetition.

 I pronounce it with silent letter "l" and a long "a".

Edit. I first took it to be Salmesbury. I didn't remember Salesbury until later. The former is well-known. I went there on a church outing once.

Given what you have said, and given that the writer always dots his i, I will change the transcript to Samsburie.

I've looked at Lancashire Online Parish Clerks and a Lancashire map. Modern spelling is Samlesbury. I've been spelling it incorrectly all this time.   :-[
The church dates from Tudor times.
