I presume you are asking for confirmation of the husband's name.

I'm fairly happy with Edmu(n)di = of Edmund

It's quite common to contract this name by dropping the n.  Normally there'd be a mark to indicate the contraction, but I can't see one here.

However, the name can't be anything else, in my opinion.

The surname could be Simm.  I have two reservations:

1.  I'd like to see another example or two of S from the same handwriting.

     I'm not totally convinced this is an S.

2.  Does the short horizontal line above the first m belong to a letter on the line above?

     If it doesn't, it's apparently a contraction mark;  but the name Simm isn't contracted.


A larger sample of the handwriting would be useful.

Good afternoon horselydown86,

Thank you for responding.

I've moved on to the 1693 entries where another occurrence of extract 6b is shown which clearly now appears to be (L) from Laurentius.

So, surname Luimn?

I've included a larger section of the original extract the (-) appears to go with this entry and not the entry above.  As you can see from extract 6a the name above is Abbott so no need for contraction.

I agree with your explanation of Edmun (n) di, in a later 1693 entry, Edmundi is shown in full.

Regards,

Janet

Thanks for posting the extra images, Janet.  I agree that Edmund's surname probably begins with L.

While I agree that the horizontal line doesn't belong to the text in the line above, it's hard to know what to make of it.  You may have noticed that he dropped the n from Laure(n)tius without a contraction mark, just as he did with Edmu(n)di.  (I presume he means Laurence in 6b.)

I've stared at Edmund's surname for quite some time but really can't make enough of the series of minims (the verticals) to commit to an answer.  That's before even thinking about a possible contraction.

I'm sorry, but I can't do any better than that.

Thanks again for your response.
I shall leave the request open a little longer.

In later 1800 transcriptions two surnames crop up, namely Limb and Lumb.  Maybe this surname is related to either Limb = Limm or Lumb = Lumm?

Another occurrence of the surname might appear which will provide an answer?

I'll let you know if it does.

Regards,

Janet

I do agree that mm is the most likely interpretation of the six minims.

I don't know where the parish register is from but there are many Waterhouses round Halifax, Yorkshire and there are also many Lummes/Lumbs, with all sorts of spellings, cb
Broadley (Lancs all dates and Halifax bef 1654)
