A non-serious suggestion - Ann Mactomato  ;D ;D.

Seriously Ann Macwinat with or without 's' at the end? Are there any other parts with a lower case 'w'?

I wondered about MacRomald, though I could only find MacRonald at Scotland's People.
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson

Am wondering if the beginning is "Ma" without the 'c' then the name, so the next letter may be a 'd' as in Mike's "dermot". I have seen in old newspapers names written as "M'xxx".

Are there any lower case 'd's elsewhere on the cert?

Where does the signature appear, please?  Is she a witness to something, a party to a marriage, or another document?

I love the idea of Mactomato, but now think I see Macdonald.  The "l" at the end is followed by a curly "d".
