"Parents:  Thomas and Arthur (crossed out) Martha"

Maybe that's where the old saying comes from "don't know whether I'm Arthur or Martha" !

That's very good, Jeanne!  ;D ;D

Take a look at this - it's really funny and won an award! It was a TV ad for Mitre 10 Hardware.

Hard of hearing, or too much of the church wine? Or couldn't read his own notes later when recording them in the register.

I'm not sure that much church wine should have been consumed at baptisms. Maybe they were done after a communion service?  Certainly there were 15-20 baptisms almost every Sunday.

Actually, if you read your Book of Common Prayer rubric, you will find that they were conducted DURING the service. There is a specific part of the service when baptisms are conducted, which is omitted if none have been presented for baptism.
