    Looks like "shoros", the bilateral "o" matches "cork" and the "s" on the end matches "banns".

    Thanks folks. I'll have to do a bit more digging and see if I can find any earlier matches for a possible Katherine, as and when my poor old eyes allow. The writing in the PR for this parish is atrocious and I don't think it's been indexed. I found the marriage in the (un-indexed) ATs/BTs, but unfortunately some are missing. Still, I'm thrilled to have found this marriage record - I've known for years that the couple's daughter married in the next parish in 1742; a week ago I found her 1718 bp and now I've got her parents' marriage. I'm on a roll!

    Now I know where to look, I've found the same record in PR - definitely begins with SH and ends with a Y?????

    Thanks Carolyn - it does resemble Sherry.
    Someone has put a tree on Ancestry and they have her as Katherine STORY, d/o Phillip and Margaret Story, bp North Repps, 2 Dec 1680. They have added an image of the relevant N Repps PR - however, as far as I can see, the record in the image is for a MARGARET Story, not Katherine. This couple also had a daughter Mary Story bp nearby Sidestrand in July 1678. Can't get a handle on them having a daughter Katherine though.
