Just for the record the words in the first line are:

Contraxit mat[rimonium] in Ecc[lesia]
Stellae Maris....

Which roughly translates as '[He] contracted marriage in the Church of the Star of the Sea.......'

I've had a good look at the page and from others on there it seems it is a note of his marriage.
Contract of matrimony in /at Stella Morris Seaforth 16th Aug to Editha Cooperthwaite or as it says on their marriage reg Cowperthwaite which was 1924


For info. using translate Latin to English

Stella Maris (Star of the Sea) Seaforth Die 16 Augustus (on the 16th August) cum Editha (with Edith) Cooperth...?
Witnerus (witness ) Pat & Anastasia Cooper....?

Iím assuming Cooper...? is the surname of Edith, Pa?? & Anastasia

1911 census has an Edith Cowperthwaite b1901 sister called  Anastasia L  born 1905 (parents Henry J(ames) & Lilian) - edit to add (mmn Webster)

Lilian Cowperthwaite
