Wednesday 1, July Married in Capt. Harn's
house, John Hammelton to Catharine Myers, widow etc.
Appears in the list: maryed by

The Captain's name is Hearn
The groom is Hammelton clearly, Katherine's maiden name is not revealed, nor the name of her late husband; Mind additional witnesses, where Salley just mentioned etc.; Russel is very uncertain! could be Ruf?ls or even Rich?ls to begin with
It seems like all English oriented names/months/statements are in blockletters
