I'm sure for novices, they might take the information as 'Fact'. However I only ever see it as an approximation as I'm sure William did when posting. Thankfully with William and EV's help I have gone back to my original thoughts on this family and have decided the baptism I found was a red herring.

I do however use the estimated birth year as a guide to try and find further information and 99% of the time it has proved helpful.
