Lately ... At Norchard,
Hartlebury, aged 66, Miss Harper.
So it's possible that the 6 [what looks like a d for pence] is paid in March QTR 1844 and then he withdraws from membership, perhaps necessitated by a move to Hartlebury.
In October 1844, there was buried Edward Harper, junior, aged 13 (confirmed in Newspaper notices) at Hartlebury.

There's wills for two Thomas Harpers of Hartlebury proved at Worcester Consistory Court, one in 1836 and another in 1856. The latter is possibly listed on the 1851 census as born circa 1802 Ombersley, Worcestershire.

There's also several under-age Harpers, lodging with their grandparents Thomas & Hannah Hatton in Hartlebury in 1841 and 1851.
It appears they may have left the area by 1848. They are living in Grouville, Jersey in 1851, together with a grand-daughter and elderly visitor.
Edward Harper, Senior, died at Jersey in 1858.
