Help interpreting handwriting - UK marriage record

I'm not sure this will work but here is a link to the item in question:
http://search.ancestry.com/iexec?htx=View&r=an&dbid=...

I am looking for Jacob Tear and I would normally translate this "Jas" as short for James but I'm not sure if there is a reason for the "b" to be offset. Can anyone tell me if that means something or might it be Jacob Tear?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Sorry, but it is definitely "Jas", i.e. James. The "b" is the standard Pallot's notation for "bachelor".

Thank you. I guess I figured the b meant something but I couldn't come up with it - wishful thinking. Thanks for the clarification.

Good Point! I'm a little better now at interpreting these things than I was last year, but this is also the only Pallots marriage record I have come across in my research. (And I'm not sure what Pallots is, anyway.) I never found record of Jacob Miller Tear marrying Maria who was with him for several decades and had many children with him.
