        Could it be a surname? Or a weirder biblical name?

          Whatever it is has been abbreviated as there is a colon after it.

            Well...I like Thos...

            The 'T' has an odd flourish on the top left. The 's' has ink that's faded in the middle, giving it the appearance of a colon.

            Or not.

                      Nope. Still like funny capital 'T' followed by "hos." If you look at the "Will'm" that follows, the second 'l' is fading as the pen/stroke runs out of ink. I think the same is happening with the 's' in "Thos"

                      or whatever...

                            Agree with Thos for both examples.

                                At the bottom of the left page, there are examples of the letter 'E'.

                                Those are not the same as the letter in your examples.

                                I went forward several pages to look for a readable capital 'T' - apparently Thomas was an unusual name in the parish? Couldn't find one.

                                  My thought is that it may be Christopher. A weird cross for the "Christo" bit and then a squiggle for the p then her. I have seen Christopher written as Xpher before.

                                    I've only reached 1744 atm Sarah the Thos's have been before that, I began in 1694 and am working my way forwards.

                                    I can see a Tho in 25 Nov 1740 Martha d/o Tho and Sarah Haber if that helps?

                                        Don't know if this will help but I approached it from a different angle. Thought I would see if I could find a marriage for a surname of Stanrod to a Sarah in Derbyshire. Using the Derbyshire records on Ancestry, what I found was a Burial for a Gorg Stanrod with parents Thomas and Sarah on 18 March 1756 at Pinxton. As the original image you posted was from the Pinxton registers in 1743, I think it might be worthwhile considering that this was another child of the couple and his name would, therefore, be Thomas. I have not found the marriage, nor the Baptism of Gorg.

                                        Another burial I have just found is for a Robert Stanrod with parents Thos and Sarah in Pinxton 0n 4 April 1742.

                                        Having checked again, the name Thomas is written in full on the burial record for Gorg.
