mystery text in parish records
« on: Wednesday 27 October 21 16:04 BST (UK) »
I'm researching Richard Winkcop who married Anne Clark on May 25 1703. The page from Family search parish records for Kirk Deighton in Yorkshire is attached. After their names are some extra words which are difficult to make out. Has anyone any idea what they are and what they mean.

You need to crop your image as we are not allowed to post full page images  :). It also makes it easier for us to look at

The notes would be the abbreviations made by the transcriber for names/phrases that cropped up regularly.  Mostly they seem to be the place where the bride/groom is "from", eg York or "K.D.".  I wonder if "ex p" could be "extra parochial" but I have no idea whether there was any extra-parochial place in that area.
Rutter, Sampson, Swinerd, Head, Redman in Kent.  Others in Cheshire, Manchester, Glos/War/Worcs.

Adhuc ex(aminatur) p(er) F.B.

meaning 'It is inspected up to this point by F.B.', presumably the initials of the person who was inspecting.

So I think it is not related to this individual entry, but a comment on the register as a whole. It might relate to inspection at a regular Visitation by the Bishop or his representative. Or it might be a 'place-holder', added during the copying process.
