    James Adams, Baptised 27 Mar. 1842. Birth appears to be 29 July-1842?

    ADAMS, JAMES x BRAY
    GRO Reference: 1841 S Quarter in SAINT SAVIOURS UNION Volume 04 Page 447
    ........

    Please cast your eyes down the list of Baptisms, & tell me this chap was having a 'Bloo..ming Awful day. Maybe that's what his initials represent.

    It looks to me as though he just forgot which year he was in and has tried (unsuccessfully) to overwrite the 2 with a 1. Perhaps force of habit after seeing the 1842 for the entries above?
