A parish burial entry
« on: Thursday 11 July 19 19:51 BST (UK) »
I need some help with the following entry - it comes immediately after the person's name in a parish burial record from 1809. I can make out the word 'buried' at the end, but I can't work out the rest.

Just noticed your addition, Gadget.  I think it's a T.  The other one in the word 'the' isn't crossed either.

Thanks for the replies! A cursory search doesn't reveal any local placenames matching that one - I can only assume it's a local geographical reference...

What's the location?

Christine (hello - not seen you for a while  :)  ) - I was not sure about the e not the t as the one in 'the' is written in the old way and the ones in 'tree' are as we write them today.

This is a burial entry for the parish registers of Ditton Priors in Shropshire, near Much Wenlock.

Hi,

could the Baytree be the name of an inn?

I've looked at the 6 ins and 25 ins/mile OS maps from NLS but no sign. There is a Howards Arms though:

Inn names were changed quite often, so maybe it could be this one.

The 25 ins cuts Ditton Priors in half - this is the east side of the village.

Added - link to a Google image - it looks quite old:
