Default Who is the father?

Lucy Baskerfield/Baskervil(l)e married Joseph Steele in 1785.
Lucy died in 1825, with a year of birth of 1762 given, deduced from her age.

All on-line trees has Benjamin Baskervile as her father.

Name Lucey Baskervyle
Baptism 12 Dec 1762 Goostrey cum barnshaw, Cheshire, England New
Father Benjamen Baskervyle

From Ancestry.

However, I have downloaded the image from FMP and the father is Joseph! I see there is the regular parish register and then there are the BTs. I didn't note which one I downloaded. I'm not renewing for the time being until I have more time.

Could someone please check to see if the information differs from one to the other and which name is given?

I've answered my own question!

I suddenly realised I should put father's name in so I tried once with Benjamin and once with Joseph.

Three hits for Joseph, one saying BTs.
Four hits for Benjamin, three saying parish baptisms.

It looks likely the clerk or whoever had a lapse of concentration.

As far as I can see on Ancestry there are only transcriptions, some with Joseph and some with Benjamin. The transcriptions which specify parish registers say Benjamen, the one which specifies bishop's transcripts says Joseph.
