The 3d taxes on baptism entries has really messed up my research on KKD ancestors. I know when they died and the age given at death, so I can get a rough estimate of birth date, but no entries were made in the OPRs until the early 1790s, when they took the younger children to wherever the kirk sessions was meeting.

The tax was for entry in the register rather than the baptism itself.
