I need help understanding the birth record of Vaclav Wagner, Doubravka #29,  which is the 5th record in this link.  I'm trying to discover the village Jakub Wagner came from and it appears to be written after his name.  The name has been "Wagner" and I am wondering why "Vejner" is included in this record.  What does it mean (it's the first time I've seen it after seeing my records)?

Column 4 reads: "Vejner Václav vlas[t]ně Wagner" which means "Vejner Václav, actually Wagner" - so I think Vejner is the surname that his father was using at some point. His father's father is Vagner. The likely reason is orthography - the letter "g" could be read as "j" (as in "yet") or as "g" (as in "get") before the 1840s orthography reforms, and "w" started to be written as "v".

Thank you!  Is there a village name listed after Jakub Wagner's name?  I am having difficulty making out the letters.
"syn zemřelého Jakuba Vagnera domkaře tamtéž č.10" translated into "son of dead Jakub Vagner crofter in the same place Nr.10". So Jakub is from Doubravka as well. Mother is from Strakonice.
Thanks for your help Stanislav.  It continues to be a mystery as to where they are from.  Karel (son of Jakub) was born about 1805 based on his marriage record (1827).  I found a sister born in 1818 but she was born in Koloměřice.  I scanned all births from 1803 and do not see any Wagner births (through 1814 so far) in the records that include Doubravka.  There are many Wagner births much later on so I assume several Wagner people (dad and sons?) moved to the Doubravka area aroun1827.
