note in [] we have a specific tag for these kind of questions from Spanish texts.

3The name is most probably Aurora. It is a common name in Spain, or it used to be in the old days. – fedorqui – 2021-01-16T23:14:05.277

1I read it as Guillorme. – erstwhile editor – 2021-01-18T13:50:50.013

2I read it as Guillerme. In Geneanet, there are records with this name in Corella, Navarra, Spain. – gparis – 2021-01-19T13:20:12.520

@gparis That sounds promising! – Andrew Truckle – 2021-01-19T13:28:32.327



this is my guess:

..natural de Corella, vecina de Corella, hijo legítimo de D. Manuél Muñoz Guíllorme y de Dª Aurora Pérez Arellano y a Dª Teresa Marcilla _ienrolas, de Veintiseis años, de estado soltera, sus labores y que nació el día 1 de ... natural de: born place, vecida de: actual home, legítimo: born under marriage, estado soltera: single - not married, sus labores: house wife.

In Spain you get surname from father and mother, so name1 surname1 suname11 marry name2 surname2 surname22, childs will be name2 suname1 surname2, ... No clue about Teresa's second surname. D. = Don > Mr., Dª = Doña > Mrs.
