Thanks for all the help and suggestions. I'll see if I have any other similar references on my trees.

I've always thought those numbers are some kind of data corruption. I'll be surprised if you get anything useful out of them.

I must have come across them several dozens of times when trawling through records on ancestry, which is why I asked. You may be right, but people have copied them on to their trees.

Just shows that people will copy anything without questioning it!

1651603 is as you can see Holywell, Flintshire, Wales. I double checked this by Googling FHL 1651603 and a wikitree came up where a person had been born in Holywell.

I googled FHL 1677001 and the same happened a Wikitree and it appears to be Woolpit, Suffolk.

Just come across this in my research.
William Orbell
1581–1657
Birth NOV 1581 • 1677271, Suffolk, England
Death 15 OCT 1657 • 1677271, Suffolk, England
Having looked at other trees, it appears that the 1677271 refers to Stansfield, Suffolk
I am still none the wiser as to this kind of source!!
