twenty second

I think what looks like a dot over the last letter is actually because some of the ink has vanished in the d.

Agree with bbart...

When I find dates which are hard to read, I go through the numbers likely & counting the letters then it becomes clearer or more obvious to work out...

An example...it isn't a number beginning 'F' or 'T' (the 2nd part)!  ;)

South Uist, Inverness-shire, Scotland:- Bowie, Campbell, Cumming, Currie, MacDonald, MacInnes, MacIntyre, MacKinnon, Steele, Walker

Ireland:- Cullen, Flannigan (Derry), Donahoe/Donaghue (variants) (Cork), McCrate (Tipperary), Mellon, Tol(l)and (Donegal & Tyrone)

Newcastle-on-Tyne/Durham (Northumberland):- Harrison, Jude, Kemp, Lunn, Mellon, Robson, Stirling

Kettering, Northampton:- MacKinnon

Canada:- Callaghan, MacKinnon, MacPhee

Thanks Annie, I tried that without success, couldn't see the d at the end but I do think bbart is right.
