  • Witness name help please

    I'm working on a will transcript and am having trouble reading the surname of the second witness, John. Any ideas please?

      Another thought - could he be a neighbour ?

          Might be getting warm with this one, I think it could be Budgen which is a local name. Thank you.

            Could be Pudsea? A variant spelling of Pudsey.

              It’s not an easy one at all but Budgen is my best guess.

                I really do't see that 4th letter as a g. Looks more like an old s to me.

                  Could be Pussed or Bussed

                    I feel it starts with a 'd' and has an 's' of a bad 'f' in the middle.

                      As I'm still not sure I'm going to submit it to Sussex Family History Group with a link to the original so that anyone who orders the transcript can take a look for themselves.

                      Thanks everyone
