John Attwood Keays: Help with old inscription

John Attwood Keays, born in England c1840, emigrated to Ottawa, Ontario, Canada c1860. Parents Charles Keys and Sarah. He named his first child John Attwood Keays. I have been searching for decades to find his birthplace in England. He brought with him an old English religious book (author John Downame) signed "John Attwood May 25th 1860" followed by illegible words which may be an address. I am hoping someone will be able to give me some clues to the place. The inscription is at

Other signatures in the book: Samuel Lovell, Thomas Rogers, 1699, ffrome
