    Default Please help. Is it Brockman or Brockwae or ?


    Please see the burial entry for March 27, 1612 and opine on whether the surname is Brockman or Brockwae or something else that Im not seeing. Wiltshire History Society transcribed as Brockwaei but Ancestry.com transcribed as Brockman. If anyone has any expertise in 17th century paleography would greatly appreciate your taking a look at this.

    I have no expertise, so am not going to attempt an answer but the tutorials (which cover documents from different years) might help.

    Maybe it doesn't work because I'm using my phone (Android). I might have a go on the PC later.

    I can find the probable baptism for this "Brockwaie" ie.

    Baptism FMP transcript
    Thomas Brockway, 14 Nov 1606, West Lavington, father Edward

    but cannot find a baptism for a Wolfstone Brockwaie/Brockway/Brockman or similar.
