context is key
btp is probably both [of] this parish.
If you are getting from my Manxnotebook then the others may be initials of parties - often in witnesses of marriages the parish clerk is commonly a witness and I will give the name in full once or twice then abbreviate further usages of same name.

x is often used in MNB to indicate a party made a mark rather than signed
