        {
NOTE: There is a 2nd birth/baptism register entry for this child, shown in the registers
            for South Parish.  This 2nd register entry notates the mother's first name as 'Anne',
             the placename as 'Lyddal', and has the same dates for the birth and baptism.
              Both OPR birth/baptism register entries in each Parish were registered on pages
               with the year, 1836, written at the top (for the North Parish, 'Anno Domini 1836';
                for the South Parish, 'A.D. Eighteen hundred and thirty six') -- the heading on a
                 baptism page indicates the year of baptism, unless an individual entry on the
                  page states differently within its text.  While the particular South Parish page
                   here (the 2nd register entry showing Donald Duncan's July 1836 date, which
                    is backed up by the North Parish register entry date of 1836 for Donald) has
                     three register entries specifically and individually stating information for year
                      1837, the remaining South Parish register entries on the page, in my view,
                       fall under the heading given at the top of the baptism page, for year 1836.

        {
NOTE: There is a 2nd birth/baptism register entry for this child, also shown in the registers
            for South Parish, but five or six pages after this entry.  The first birth/baptism register entry
             for James Leith was registered on a page with the year, 1837, written at the top ('A.D. Eighteen
              hundred and thirty seven') and states that James '...was born on the twenty seventh day of
               December and baptized on the Fourth day of January, Eighteen hundred and thirty eight in
                presence of James Durran and Peter Annal both parishioners'.  The 2nd register entry was
                 registered on a page with the year, 1841, written at the top ('A.D. Eighteen hundred and
                  forty one') but within its individual entry on the page, the year '1838' is specifically shown
                   in the margin and the entry states that James '...was born on the fourth day of January,
                    Eighteen hundred and thirty eight, and baptized on the twelfth day of January, in presence
                     of Peter Annal, in Sillerdykes, and James Harrold in Mossater, both parishioners'.  Both
                      birth/baptism register entries notate an event for that particular date, 4th January 1838:
                       in the first entry, January 4th indicated James' baptism date associated with a December
                        1837 birth; in the 2nd birth/baptism entry, January 4th was shown as James' birth date
                         but with an inferred baptism date of 12th January 1841 per the heading at the top of
                          the 2nd entry's register page.  In my view, although the placenames differ between
                           the two entries (with the 2nd entry notating 'Sillerdykes' as compared to 'Linkletter'),
                            there is the sharing of the 4th January 1838 date between the two entries, the baby's
                             name is the same, as are the names of the parents in both entries; thus, the 2nd entry
                              seems to me to be a likely "re-entry" of this same James Leith's birth/baptism but
                               added later to the registers a few years after his original birth and possibly containing
                                an error with the birth date.  My own tendency would be to accept the first entry's
                                 birth date (27th December 1837) as the most probable correct birth date.
