Ayla,

My interpretion

If it is from the same record where "vih." was written and the record is in Finnish then "e." simply could mean ennen/before, entinen/previously, eli/or - in any case points to the use of another name for place/homestead or another name of/on the same homestead.

Many thanks Hasse.
I am just wondering, would f. mean the same thing then?
I have seen both in use.
