The name is Agnes. You can compare each of the letters to those shown in this BYU Script Tutorial for German handwriting. I extracted the relevant letters from the alphabet image on that site, and put them together in one image. I've included your image below for easy comparison.

It says "Leeds in the County of York"

I think the first bit is "Forgery - a request for the delivery of goods" and the bit at the end is probably "2 convictions" but it's hard to be sure of that.

It says "Doth Ordayne" as in "I doeth Ordain this my Last Will and Testament" example - William Shakespeare's Will of 1616 - "I, William Shackspeare of Stratford-upon-Avon in the county of Warwick, gent., in perfect health and memory, God be praised, do make and ordain this my last will and testament"

It looks like "instant" meaning "this month". Since the latest month mentioned in the left column is October, I would interpret it that the child John was born October 1st and baptized on October 24th. "Instant" (often abbreviated "inst.") and "ultimo" (or "ult."), meaning the previous month, are old English words originally from Latin. The previous ...

It's "Superintendent Registrar's Certificate" - though I admit it does help to know the various ways of getting married rather than rely on the text. Generally marriages in the Church of England would take place after banns had been read in the parish churches of the two parties. There are various reasons for not getting banns - pre-1837 the couple could get ...

I think (having looked at the full page on FindMyPast) that it probably actually says "were" so that it reads: John Smith Captains Clarke of his Majestys Ship Firm and Sarah Osment of St Andrews Plymouth a minor with consent of parents were married in this church by licence this thirteenth Day of July in the Year One Thousand Seven Hundred and Sixty ...

I read "H M Ship 'Queen.'" See the Wikipedia article, "HMS Queen," for "Seven ships of the Royal Navy have been named HMS Queen." In particular, note the number of guns in, "HMS Queen was a 110-gun first rate launched in 1839. In 1859 the ship was fitted with a screw propeller and reduced to 86 guns. She was broken up in 1871." More about this specific ...

It's "And" with a capital "A" ! Your "s" is clearly(?) the same as the "d" in "and" Your "u" could just as easily be an "n" - these are notoriously easy to confuse. Your "et" is one letter, "A" - the second "etus" is actually clearer that the "et" is one letter. It doesn't help that they omit punctuation, does it?

Imprimis is Latin for "firstly". The word commonly appears in lists in parish registers and wills, preceding the first item.

I can't read the script yet. But we can say what it meant - if you look at the vertical annotation to the right, it explains that the registrations were cancelled because the qualification of the informant was not stated. Births and deaths in the English / Welsh registration system, and apparently the Irish I see from the image here, can only be reported by ...

The teacher's name is Elizabeth Ullrich. From the report card, we can see that the school was in Rhode Island. There is a report titled RHODE ISLAND SCHOOL REPORT, prepared for the Rhode Island Board of Education which lists School Officers and Teachers in Public Schools in 1894-95 which includes Elizabeth Ullrich as a teacher in 'Grammar, Intermediate, ...

Census page is Bronx, New York, ED 3-803, sheet 14A, family 49, lines 36-40, for those wanting see beyond the excerpts. Checked the entry above (Schuss, Blanche) for decending letters (none). The note is "Party has moved away". BTW, Ancestry has the head of household indexed as "Pady Louis Palefsky"

To me that looks like a D comparing it earlier on the same page where it is clearer and written in the same way so I think that it is the 2nd. It is always useful in this type of case to look at entries close to the one that you are looking at to see if the handwriting is clearer and you get to start to see how the author actually writes and it make it ...

Annoying...! I think the word is "Indep", meaning "Independent", as in "Of Independent means". "I" and "J" do seem to be very similar in many hands and I'm not sure what to say the difference is. I've just looked through this census book and can't see any other use of a capital "I", and of course found several "J" for "Jane", etc., that look very similar. ...

The note reads: "According to the Cert[ifica]te of the Rev[eren]d G. Morland transmitted to me 30th August." An Act for the better regulating and preserving Parish and other Registers of Births, Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials in England (Stat. 52 Geo. 3, c. 146) describes the reason why this was written in the margin: IV. And be it further enacted, ...

Counkilla or Ceancullig (Gaelic: Ceann Coille) is located just north of Drimoleague. It is a townland in Drimoleague parish. Clearly there are numerous spelling variations of this place that you may find, some more phonetic, some more true to its Gaelic origin. See the entry for Ceancullig on Townlands.ie for more information about this location. Historic ...

I believe the name starts with either "Cwm" or "Crwm". There is a bit of a stroke after the ending loop of the "C" which could be interpreted as an "r". Many Welsh place names start with "Cwm", and a few start with "Crwm", so either is plausible. I'm pretty sure the name ends with "th". The "t" is a common form which makes a half-crossing stroke without ...

"Know all men by these presents, that we George Dutton of Coddington in the County and Diocese of Chester, farmer, and Robert Ruscoe of Aldersey in the same county, farmer, are holden and firmly bound unto the Right Reverend Father in God Henry William Bishop of Chester in the sum of five hundred pounds...

I am not an expert on Macedonian place names or history but from Macedonian Village Names THE NAMES OF 804 MACEDONIAN VILLAGES IN AEGEAN MACEDONIA, occupied by Greece in 1912, that have forcedly been changed from 1926 and forward. Submitted by Lena Jankovski and Alex Bakratcheff I wonder whether it may be: MACEDONIAN NAME (District) Greek ...

The handwriting isn't great (and it hasn't come through well on the pdf copy), but the Address is given as "Independence MO". The downstroke of the J of "Jr" crosses the last "e" of "Independence". I've taken he liberty of removing the name and indicating each letter in red above the script here:

My reading is "profesión, sus labores". In view of the 1970 film "De profesión, sus labores" I take it this is how one says "housewife/domestic duties" on a Spanish Death certificate. See also the translation from an online dictionary: profesión: sus labores (en censo, formulario) occupation: housewife

The name of the Captain would appear to be "Cannon" in the first image (appearing more legibly in "Captain Wm Cannons Company" in the second). The phrase at the end is "per annum" (compare the "p" in "per" with the "p" in "Captain" in your first image) I did a quick search for "South Carolina Volunteers" "1812", and found this list of Nash's Regiment SC ...

The UK and Ireland censuses are available from multiple places: Ancestry, FindMyPast, and MyHeritage to name a few. FamilySearch has transcripts, but it links to FindMyPast for the images. I can access the image at Ancestry and MyHeritage through my library. In both of these, the image is not very clear. However, on MyHeritage, I was able to zoom large ...

Identifying a Welsh place-name does take a little extra effort sometimes. This particular problem is compounded by the fact that the county is not identified. To sort out a Welsh place-name the following steps may help. Some steps may help in your specific situation while others may only work in other cases. Step 1: Check a gazetteer There are several ...

You are not the only one who had trouble reading it ;) The person transcribing the 1871 census for Family Search also couldn't decipher it and they left it blank. As @Jeremy mentioned, I think that this begins with Cwm... My best guess is "Cwmreash" or "Cwmrecash" with the second last consonant being a strong "s". Trying to say this in your head with a ...

Full disclosure: I am a moderator on Mathematica.SE, but have no relationship with the company that makes the product Surprising is it might seem, the Mathematica application has extensive image editing functionality that can be used for this sort of task. The language might take a bit of getting used to, but you can learn a lot just by mucking around and ...
