    A link would be great, but my first thought was Guernsey. or Greenway. Really your example just looks like a series of waves.

    Thanks each. I think I'll record it as Gummery with a cautionary note.

    I read it as Gummery - one of my primary school teachers wrote her lower case "N"s and "M"s like that in the register! Luckily she taught the infant class - "joined up" writing was taught once you got into the "big class." (I went to a village school, with about 26 children on roll, two classes, a head teacher and an assistant mistress.)

    I think it’s closer to Gummery than Gunnery but it is certainly is difficult to be 100% sure.

    Can anyone read this name? Ancestry have transcribed it as Gumary, FMP as Gumnery. temp.jpg
