1620s parish register
« on: Wednesday 30 January 19 23:36 GMT (UK) »
Hello, can anyone suggest what the asterisked name is? I've included two examples from the parish register of Keelby, Lincolnshire in the 1620s.

This is a fairly legible document, but this name I'm not sure about.

Thank you
Thorpe, Feak & Townsend (Norfolk) / Ormandy & Slater (Dalton-in-Furness) / Corner (Liverpool) / Wray (Lincolnshire) / Fidler, Bridge & Turner (Derbyshire)

I'm not sure if it's just the christian name you want or not.

The first entry says:
Isabell the daughter of Walthar Taylor bapt

Possibly 'walthar' - the writer does funny little 'r's at the end of words.

The second one says:
Isabell the daughter of Albayne Making buryed April

It's a bit hard to see the up-stroke of the 'b', but it is there.
