William Feary dated 4 September 1674. This is in Latin and I tried to look up some of the words in my Latin dictionary but the scribe has abbreviated most of the words which makes it difficult to decipher.
He is from the parish of Tuddington (Toddington). It was sometimes referred to as Tuddington, Bedford.
What it appears is that his wife’s name is Anne and that she is a widow, ”relict”. It also has the word “nuper” after William’s name which means “lately” and sometimes denotes a deceased person.
There is the name Edward Cooper of Tuddington who is a yeoman and John Feary of Flitwick. The abb. “gen is after John’s name I guess meaning he is related to William.

Mrs. Anne FEARY 1-9183 died 2 on 14 Dec 1675 in Toddington, Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom. Mrs. married (MRIN:4002) William FEARY-9156 about 1656 in of Toddington, Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.
