Earliest event referred to in a certificate
« on: Sunday 16 October 11 19:29 BST (UK) »
I've just received a death certificate for Sarah Dunbavand, the sixth death registered in Runcorn district at the start of civil registration.

Sarah was 87, making her birth approximately 1750.

Has anyone come across a reference in a certificate to anyone born earlier or is this a record?
Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.
