    Having gone back to Grand children of 2nd Gt.G'Aunt in her 2nd marriage, my legacy file keeps finding errors. [my 2nd cousins x2 r'd.]
    This one well founded in that the child is born too soon after previous child. Anc.:

    James Moulton b. 7 Jul 1891, bapt. 1894 St.Mark, Walworth.

    Bottom of previous page but not transcribed, Samuel James Moulton
    image has birth date has 25 Nov. 1890.
    Record Type: Baptism same day as younger brother.
    Baptism Date: 13 Mar 1894
    Baptism Place: Walworth St Mark, Southwark, England


    MOULTON, Samuel James x CLARK
    GRO Reference: 1890 M Quarter in St. Saviour London
    Volume 01D Page 29

    Perhaps 25 Nov. 1889 would be closer to the truth?
    I wonder if they'd all mind if I put this date in my files? Can't have my software getting out of sorts. :D

    I had one yesterday who, according to the parish register, was baptised before he was born :eek:

    Then I found a couple on the 1911 census who said they had been married 2 years - when in fact they married two years later, in 1913 - wonder if they knew when they were getting married:D

    I guess it depended on their definition of getting/ being 'married' ? ;)
