Hello Colin. What was the original import of that document?
It's from the Admission Register for Infants from the Berner Street School.
The child concerned lived at 33, Backchurch Lane according to the entry and that's confirmed by a cross-check with the 1881 census record. I was looking for another name entirely, but this entry stood out for obvious reasons. I asked my wife, who has no interest in the subject, to spell the word as she viewed it. She saw it as J U W E S (which it isn't!).
Ignore the top script, Robert. I had to leave it in as the two overlapped, but they're separate entries.
