On 20 Mar 1718/19 a scribe wrote in the Lancashire, Church of England, Bishops' Transcripts "20 Thomas Son to Þe late Rever M.ɚ Ogden". This is a burial record. As best I can interpret it, it reads "20 Thomas Son to the late Reverend M. Ogden" However, I do not know what the ɚ is. It appears in superscript between the M. and Ogden. It looks like an upside down cursive e with a tail or flair. An image is attached. Can anyone tell me what it is an how it should be interpreted?
It seems to say "Reverend Mr Ogden". The abbreviation "Mr" was sometimes written with a superscript, similar to how people still write 1st. You can see another example of this in this picture: The Reverend Mr James Hervey (1751).
