      The 2 entries, agree on transcribed details except for year. Error probably in LDS transcription rather than registers.
      Based on dates of baptisms of other children either date is possible, but 1759 seems most likely.

    • A James Grigsby who was living in the Workhouse in Hollingbourne was buried in Hucking on 28 Jun 1837, age recorded as 77. I think it was probably this James, as the baptisms of his siblings show the family moved to Hucking when he was a young child, though there was another James baptised in Bicknor shortly before this James (probably a 1st cousin).
