I cannot make out this Wiltshire placename, any ideas?
Well, there is a place called Alvediston so it might be a misheard/garbled version of that perhaps....
Yes I am thinking it reads Allerverdistance with the 1st -er- crossed through.
So do I transcribe as Allverdistance, I don't know that I can have crossed through text
Do you have the facility to have notes or do you have to transcribe as it is written?
I can add a note
Along the Loscomb(e) Road is a dwelling called Myrtle something, all I can see is Dragon, but I think that must be wrong
You know I had it in my head that it began with a strange 'F', I still couldn't see past Dragon though
Thank you @MollyMay
I'm with MM and think it is Myrtle Farm.
It looks like the top of the R in Road is caught up in the letter R in farm
The last part of the word looks like distance and the start is ALL and what looks like X further on.
Separate names with a comma.
