At sometimes I get very lucky.

Following my Parker Family search project and subsequent to Part 185pw in the FHL microfilm FHL [1278942] in Item 7 in the Parish Registers for Downham, 1653-1900, of the Church of England, Chapelry of Downham of Lancashire, I discovered a barely legible copy of the page containing the Baptismal Entry of ggg-grandfather John Parker.

The copy of the page from the Parish Register of the Baptism Entry follows:

And my transcription of the highlighted entry is:
28? John Son of William and Mary Parker Downham
born May 28th . _____

Apart from the fact that the image of the page is extremely blurred, I am having a difficult time making out the word the follows the phrase “born May 28th.” I’m not sure if it a word that is crossed out or underlined, and if it is applicable to the entry. Anybody have any suggests?

I have updated the Parker Descendant Chart and have included it in this posting. I will also, shortly be adding it to the “Robertson Chart” link at the top of my Blog page.
