Can you read the date and place of birth?

The date is twenty something, but what is the something and where did the birth occur?

Thanks.

I think it’s Twenty second September, in Stratton or Stretton

Hello!

Not sure if you are going to read this as your post was a while ago now, but there is a place called Skelton just outside of Guisborough, Yorkshire. It does look a little like Skelton. I also agree it is the twenty-second of September.

The place is easier to read in the ‘residence’ column, and I agree it looks like Skelton - the K is more pronounced. A full list of parishes included in Guisborough Registration District is here: https://www.ukbmd.org.uk/reg/districts/guisborough.html

Brotton is an outside possibility I guess but I’d go with Skelton.

I'll agree with Janey on Skelton - though I must admit my immediate reaction was Stretton! However, look at the "k" in the sub-district name of Marske and compare it to the shape of the "t" in several places. And the registrar is generous with the width of his cross-bars on "t" - like "mother", for instance.

Not easy that one!
