* Note:
The top of the page says “The Year 1808” and the page is “Page 65”
All the other entries are written in a different hand, with the vicar Alfred Wm Roberts officiating. The entry for Benjamin and Sarah is poor handwriting with the obvious mistake of the year as he gives “1708”. All the entries above and below have the correct year of 1808.
