It's written Loveng (= loving). The ascender from the k in the line below is causing interference.

Thank you Bookbox. With so much skill hovering, it would seem,  may I try another name?
I added 'John' from the end of the previous line

Bunce doesn't mean anything to me  -- yet. Childrey suddenly became obvious and being near west Challow, i feel I need to look no further.

The new attachment is confusing me. Is it in some way apologising for mis-spelling the queen's name?
It is a combination of part of the last 2 lines of the will.
Thanks, T

Thank you Bookbox.
The final piece of the jigsaw is attached and concerns words between the red marks. Somehow it doesn't seem to make much sense - that is to me.

....John all the ......
shall be grown at my ..... in the chamber

Thanks for any help. Toby.
