Middlesex, England surname help please
Hi - I wonder if anyone could help me with entry 41, 28 September, Isabell wife of Rich S*aker
I am struggling with the surname
Thank you, Pamela
The marriage of this couple has already been indexed - see https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:V526-2XD. As you can see, the surname has been indexed for this event as STAUESAKER.
I found this by being convinced the surname did end in "...saker" and performing a search for "Richard *saker" in Middlesex. In brief, further searches I could find no similar surnames, so maybe it is an incorrectly spelled name of German, or unknown origin.
Update - take a look at https://www.familysearch.org/search/record/results?q.surname=s*saker&q.surname.exact=on&q.anyPlace=middlesex&q.anyPlace.exact=on&count=20&offset=0&m.defaultFacets=on&m.queryRequireDefault=on&m.facetNestCollectionInCategory=on and you will see what appear to be other variants of this name.0

I agree that the name looks like "Stauesaker" but, as in the old style of writing "u" and "v" were interchangeable, I would suggest that Stavesaker is more likely. There are records of Stavesakers in Middlesex in to 1660s on My Heritage.
I hope this helps,
This is another image, linked to two of the instances of an individual indexed as "Phillip Stawsaker". but (from the original) I think I would have indexed as "Phillip Stauesaker" - mainly because the letter "w" looks rather different elsewhere on this page, so "ue" seems a better alternative.0
I would use a wild-card. 😊0
Thank you everyone. It's good to have second opinions. I think the wild card might be the way to go. I will look for Isabell Morley too, just in case there is a clue there.
