    I know, so a very very late birth registration?

    No I'd say they have made a mistake with the birth date for one of them. The average time between birth would be 280 days, theirs would only be 247. 32 days early in 1861 and still survive, I don't think so.

    Hmm, not going to spend the money - yet - not earning £ at the moment, just my small private pension coming in. I am doing this for the wife of my cousin's son. John Thomas would be her 4th Great Uncle, so not important at the mo.

    Exactly what I thought. I think it must be Lydia's as Sarah Ann's birth reg is the A/M/J quarter 1860 and a birth date on her baptism of May 1860 (I think it says 10th rather than 16th), which would seem correct.

    Dinner is ready - back in a while :D

    My vote would be that she was born 12 Jan 1862, baptised in Feb 1862.

    (My reasoning being that, in the days when I wrote several cheques per month, I often got the year wrong in January! :oops:)
