Please note, these dates are correct even though some of the baptismal dates are earlier than the dates of birth, the reason being, the births had to be registered within a certain amount of time and if they were not then the parents had to pay a fine, hence the difference in the dates. For legal purposes these people would have used their registered dates but for church/family purposes they would have used their baptismal date.

It must also be noted that when deaths were registered there was no check as to birth dates so the register accepted the age given by the informant, which may have been totally incorrect.

Lastly, it is hard to know when Cornelius was born as the ages on the census returns don't agree.
