Again, very helpful information. Thanks Omega and jonw65!

I never knew images of the Heathfield registers are online for free before, so now I've got many happy hours ahead of me poring over them.

First thing I did was clear up the discrepancy in the 1734 baptism of Henry Parsons. I had assumed my source, the PRTS, was likely to be wrong because I could explain it by transcriber eye-skip (the mother in both baptisms above and below Henry's is named Elizabeth), but when I looked at the image it turns out that the SFHG database is in error, the mother is Elizabeth. Sorry, Omega.

Cheers,
Stovepipe
