Christening Record - Peder Jensen

Since the 1870 Danish Census gave me Peder Jensen's birth place as Nylars (which is Nylarsker parish), I went into the church records to find his christening.

[my comment: It seems like the "8" which descends the line is a kind of abbreiation, signifying that "now comes the address". Farms in Bornholm seemed to have some kind of numbering system, and I believe it possible, that Christen Jensen is living in 25 S??gg[rd?]. Not having any better way to show, I will use [8] to show]

[comment: The pastor has forgotten to place the entry in chronological order. This would explain the NB in front of the name in the first column]

It appears that Peder may have been ill as a newborn because he was christened at home.
