Looks like something kins to me Dave, I would have said Jenkins, but the J isn't the same as John, The presence and the witness are the same aren't they??

Thanks Amanda.

I'm sure it is an H not a J.

Yes, the witnesses are named after the '... in the Presence of' and then they are supposed to sign where it says Witnesses.

That is not a film of the parish register but a film of the form the church was required to send to the registrar General containing some of the details from the register.

In many cases the whole form is written in the same hand.
