Thanks Rosie, I guessed that Do meant ditto, but wasn't sure if the rest read 'In house' or 'In Here' - which could mean that Emily Grady was possibly born in the Workhouse.  I've traced her birth to 1862 in Chorlton (with mother Hooton), but no marriage record of a Grady/Hooton anywhere.   ;D ;D ;D

Using just the Piece Number 3974 - there is a Jane Grady, born 1830 in Newark, Notts - Widow, general servant - Inmate.

Folio 115, page 23

I think the  name in brackets is Jane, so your find looks like it could be her,  BB.

I'm not sure what else you know of her but there's a possible marriage for her in 1882

Q1, 8C,  881, Chorlton to either William Monkman or Edward Eidershaw.

In 1881 I think she might be at RG11/3891/88/37

Add - looks like William Monkman

It might well be that Jane Hooton had been married to someone else, prior to Mr Grady.  Birth registrations tend to show the original maiden name of the mother.
