Thank you, Boo.  I believe that AntonyMMM has answered my query.

Sometimes you will find images online of the original register.  I remember one marriage where a cleric had entered the bride's surname as Heywood (a town in Lancashire not far from the marriage, as it happens) but she had signed, in very different handwriting, as Hayward - which was probably the correct spelling, she should know.

Just shows that the recorder writes whatever he/she thinks she hears.  Beware.

Thank you Andrew.  Yes, I'm well aware of that fact regarding mis-hearing or mis-spelling and have come across it many, many times.  However, in this instance that was not my query, and I am more than satisfied with AntonyMMM's response.

Just to say that AnthonyMMM has reiterated what I said, but in much more detail - and more elegantly!

Thank you,
Melbell

Apologies, Melbel, I should have acknowledged your response.   :'( :'(
