      "John Wright Trant No. 1344, abode: Chapel Street, died: [October] 17, buried: 22, aged: 40 years, ceremony performed by: W St Aubyn, Rector"
      [ Rector's name a guess - looks more like W JM Ausr - but I know the St Aubyn family were connected with the parish, including as clergy]
      There were 6 other burials in the parish the same day, and more the day before and the following day.Of those the same day only one person was older, aged 57, one was of a 23 year old, and 4 were under a year (2 days to 7 months). Stoke Damerel was not a healthy place to live.
