- Others have interpreted Bessie's surname as Deat (IGI) or Doull (Angela - or at least my interpretation from her notes) I read it as Teat, and there are others of that surname in the area, probably now Tait.

E. & O. E. Some/most parish records are rather hard to read and names, places hard to interpret, particularly if you are unfamiliar with an area.
