   5421 1.0 Thomas Phillipsmale
In the original Wesleyan baptism records this appears following baptisms dated 1815. The subsequent record in the book (for Thomas's sister Ann) is also slightly out of sequence. Perhaps Thomas's record was found to be missing when Ann's was about to be entered? The record shows a birth place of Wilbarston but does not specify where the baptism took place, so it may have been at Wilbarston even though the record book is for the Desborough chapel

Estimated dates of birth (treat with caution - they could be decades out!)
:- where there is a marriage or children recorded, the date is estimated at 16-18 years before the earliest date;
:- where there is only a burial known, if the person or their spouse is described as "old", the birth is estimated at 50 years earlier; if they are described as "very old", the birth is estimated at 60 years earlier; if neither, the birth is estimated at 18 years earlier.

Estimated dates of death are given as a visual aid to point up whether or not they survived their spouse.

Before 1752 the calendar year started on 25th March; dates where the year appears as, eg: "1650/51" show the year as it would have been given at the time (in this example 1650), and the year by the modern calendar (1651). Jan-Mar dates before 1752 which don't show this "double-dating" are from secondary sources which haven't made clear which dating system has been used.
