Many records from Store Tåstrup parish in Merløse herred, Holbæk give the person's location as just Merløse.  Examples at https://www.sa.dk/ao-soegesider/da/billedviser?bsid=156930#156930,26315594 (second from bottom on left for Otte Olsen) and https://www.sa.dk/ao-soegesider/da/billedviser?bsid=156930#156930,26315648 (also second from bottom on left for Otte Olsen).  This isn't referring to Merløse herred is it?  But I don't find a placename in Store Tåstrup parish for just Merløse (https://www.danishfamilysearch.com/sogn490/stednavne, https://www.familysearch.org/en/wiki/Store_T%C3%A5strup_Parish,_Holb%C3%A6k,_Denmark_Genealogy).  Is it Store Merløse,  Merløsegård, Merløse Fritidscenter, Tveje Merløse or something else?  Thank you for your help.

Merløse mentioned in the church books (for Store Taastrup Sogn) should be "Store Merløse" in Store Tåstrup Sogn, which is in Merløse Herred (confusingly enough).
See here: https://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Store_T%C3%A5strup_Sogn
NB: Merløsegård is a great farm and would most likely have been specified and not just called Merløse.
