Deciphering place name
« on: Thursday 08 April 21 11:04 BST (UK) »
Can anyone please help with the attached.

The extract is from Birstall Parish Register and reads,

"Joshua son of Dan Walker of Glynn[----]"   Birstall is adjacent to Leeds.  The writing is not very clear and despite checking the adjacent and nearby parish names I can't come up with anything that would fit. 

The full page is here:

All help appreciated.

A little clearer on the BT's - Gt Gomersall.

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!
If you don't ask the question, you won't get an answer.

That was quick  :)  Thank you. Didn't think to check the BTs.

I read the first letters as Gly and the m as a double n, although I thought the ending was ll. 

Thank you for the help.  Problem solved.
