Maybe someone read it over a Piers Plowman's lunch.

Anachronistic though...contained all the right breads and cheeses, but not necessarily in the right order!

Default What's This?

This is an enlarged image from a document created in 1881. How would you transcribe this word?

The original document originates from Berner Street.

The bottom word could be "Juwes" but I might only be saying that because I am "looking for it."

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.

Regards, Bridewell.

Hello Colin. Thanks.

Isn't "James" perchance?

Cheers.

Not "James". I will provide the answer in due course. Just want to see how a few others read it.

Hello Colin. Thanks.

What about an initial "P"? Punies?

Cheers.

Hi Colin,

I read it as "Junior".

Do I win a cuddly toy?

Regards,

Simon
