1691 for the one you have as 1692
Don't forget the change of calendar in the mid 1700s.  Prior to that the year was not Jan to Dec so modern transcriptions sometimes alter it as if it was.

Hi Radcliff

Internet went down yesterday lost it for most of the day. We spent billions of $$$ on a new and better system, jury is out on that. I guess our forefathers had pigeons to carry messages and they to had problems. Ironical.

Any way back to task: No, do not know their occupations, if you have them would be greatly appreciated. If you don't mind me asking, where do you find details like that?

You also mentioned a will for Edward Brown, which Diocese, is it Durham? posted after I sent the message Had a look good pick. Thanks
