Deane, based on the "e" in John Sergeant.

It looks like Deane, but it would be helpful if you put the enquiry in context i.e. is this from a marriage certificate, if so between whom?

If we can identify the street in column 1 (Beach Street or Brack Street?) this would help - the second letter looks almost identical to that in the surname.

My instinct is Deane, but I'm not absolutely certain.

The two e instances in Sergeant would make me say Deane too.

There are two instances of 'er', in Waterloo and Sergeant, so the two letters are easily compared.

On that basis, I believe the name is Deane.

(Drane is a surname in Suffolk, and probably elsewhere, but not in the snippet we're shown here.)

I think that's Peach Street, it existed in 1881 and 1911.
