  1. I believe it is Jesse Kent. The double S sometimes looks like an "F".

  4. Jesse Kent, although I didn't know the double s symbol. Thanks to other posters I now do.

  5. I would transcribe that as Jesse Kent also.

  6. I would need to see the rest to compar other letters, I'd say the last name is Kent, because I can see the other capital H's. The first name doesn't look like the only other visible capital J (in James Ramply)so I'd have to compare it to the rest of the writing in the document.
