It's probably Relation. Perhaps look on the following page, where there are several examples of occupation, to see if the shape of -ation there compares favourably with this, faded though it is?

I also think it's Jonathan Packer (not Parker).

Thanks, Bookbox. 

Relation could be right. The faded letters fit the shape of ation. Also John Fagg didn't marry, and he survived his parents and one brother.

Yes that will be Packer instead of Parker. I'm still getting the 'c' confused with 'r' :)

Thanks again
