Can someone please confirm I have the names & words in bold correctly transcribed?

from second line

eldest Clergyman of the Dutch Church in Austin fryers
London and Mr Charles Smelt now living in my house

I also attach a clip of the names when the will was proved.

I'd go with Henry Pudman and Mr Charles Smelt Mckha.
Interesting on the probate that Henry is 'the Reverend Putman otherwise Pudman'.

Also 'house', yes.
Lane, Burgess: Cheshire. Finney, Rogers, Gilman:Derbys
Cochran, Nicol, Paton, Bruce:Scotland. Bertolle:London
Bainbridge, Christman, Jeffs: Staffs

Thank you Goldie.  Yes, I thought that interesting too.  Itís not as if it is so different you would have thought a note of the different pronunciation was necessary.
