Hooray! My username has now turned green, meaning I can post this image (hopefully it has worked!). The name John Webber is the father of the groom (my 3 greats grandfather). But I am curious about the word (which looks like "Into") appearing before his name. Any ideas what it means? Thanks in anticipation!

This is pure speculation and would not normally apply to someone with the surname Webber, however, "IANTO" was a well known name or nickname but as in my case was normally for those with the surname "EVANS".

One other factor is that of course all documents relied on the person writing them. My mother's maiden name was Locke, and it has been written as Lock and Locke on birth certificates of myself and my brothers.

Just a wild guess really.
