Something Standley
« on: Friday 12 November 21 20:28 GMT (UK) »
I wonder if anyone can help me with the forename of this witness signature to a wedding in Birmingham in 1832 between Samuel Parsons and Amelia Standley? The surname is Standley, but I'm blowed if I can make out the first name. My only guess would be Thomas, but it could just as easily be Harriet. It's one of those where I've reached a dead end, so any additional names would be helpful. Thanks.

I think it is written Henery, with a very florid y at the end.

Thanks very much. I can see the 'Hener' bit now - can't make the rest into a 'y' I must admit, but you're probably right. I'll check Hen[e]ry Standleys in that line to see if it makes sense.
