Put this one up for two reasons, one to make you shudder and glad it's not yours. The second and main reason is to get your opinion of what the entry states, if anyone can read it that is. I think it's the eighth entry down from the year "1659". The background Looking for the Susan(na) Sparke who married William Handler in 1686 at Panfield. I found the Wethersfield Susan plus Susan Spark born 15 Dec 1666 and baptised 21 Apr 1680 at Colchester St James, the daughter of William and Thomasin. I tend to favour the Wethersfield Susan Sparke because William & Susan Handler named their first son John, Susan's father was named John, plus Wethersfield is close to Panfield and Braintree where most of their children were baptised. I could only find one sibling of Susan's, Alice baptised 23 May 1675 at Wethersfield, I wonder why.
