    It's certainly Richard - the R is typical of the time. The one for Rose is the odd one as it looks so modern, possibly the vicar was showing off his knowledge of italic hand as well as secretary.

    Coming to this fresh after a few days and without looking at the posts above, I think it's:

    Nicholas Sowter sonne of Richard Sowter and Rose was baptized the first of May 1638.

    William Sowter was buried the 26th day of June.
