Can only guess at Lade's land and dike builder (dyke)? Can't get the occuption as it looks like wander - could be winder but no dot above i.

If it is Wand.. then the d does not look like the 'd' in Widow or Lade or land.

So Wan?? - I have no idea what the last two (or is it 3) letters are.

Perhaps Ladie land

It does look like Dike - the 'D' is like the one in M.D. and it's typical for the 'k' to be more like a 'K' even though not a capital.
