    With the new improved Norfolk PR's released by FMP I have been looking at my early Reeders and this baptism appeared, but what is the girl's name?
    6/3/1630 Wells Next the Sea

    The dark vertical line is not part of the name.

    This one shows the line is the break between the date and the name but it does look like the first letter crosses this line.

    With the feint line under the stroke, I’m leaning toward Hellina.

    1630 means Latin, does it not? Would that limit the possibilities any? I'm overdue for new specs - no help on handwriting. :ghost:

    I would say Helline too. Below is Latin script from an alphabet that FreeReg sent me when I was transcribing. The h under the blue cross looks very similar to me. Had a look at the original register too which helps with comparisons.

    Also both FMP and Ancestry have it as Helline.

    Thank you everyone - the transcription says Helline, but I just could not see the first letter as an 'H'.

    @Sis - your alphabet confirms it - thanks

    Also, having found it on FMP there is a 'Henry, son of' lower down with exact same letter.
