        {
NOTE: The OPR birth/baptism register entry was registered on a page with the year, 1840,
            written at the top ('A.D. Eighteen hundred and forty') -- the heading on a baptism page
             indicates the year of baptism, unless an individual entry on the page states differently
              within its text.  That is not the case with Mary's entry on this page, so it is my view
               that a year of 1840 for her baptism can also be inferred.  Her entry states that Mary
                '...was born on the Fifth of October and baptized on the seventh day of Feby. ...'
                 and since the headings on baptism pages normally depict the year of baptism
                  (unless otherwise stated), this suggests that a case could be made that Mary's
                   birth might have been in October of 1839 and her baptism in February of 1840
                    (e.g. in my view, the International Genealogical Index and the GROS Index
                     could be incorrectly showing Mary's baptism as '7 Feb 1841').

        {
NOTE: The OPR birth/baptism register entry was registered on a page with the year, 1841,
            written at the top ('A.D. Eighteen hundred and forty One') -- the heading on a baptism
             page indicates the year of baptism, unless an individual entry on the page states
              differently within its text.  That is not the case with Mary's entry on this page, so
               it is my view that a year of 1841 for her baptism can also be inferred.  Her entry
                states that Mary '...was born on the fourteenth day of December, and baptized on
                 the sixteenth day of Jany. ...' and since the headings on baptism pages normally
                  depict the year of baptism (unless otherwise stated), this suggests that a case
                   could be made that Mary's birth might have been in December of 1840 and her
                    baptism in January of 1841 (e.g. in my view, the International Genealogical
                     Index and the GROS Index could be incorrectly showing Mary's baptism
                      as '16 Jan 1842').

        {
NOTE: The OPR birth/baptism register entry was registered on a page with the year, 1842,
            written at the top ('A.D. Eighteen hundred and forty two') -- the heading on a baptism
             page indicates the year of baptism, unless an individual entry on the page states
              differently within its text.  That is not the case with Helen's entry on this page, so
               it is my view that a year of 1842 for her baptism can also be inferred.  Her entry
                states that Helen '...was born on the twenty ninth day of November, and baptized
                 on the twenty third day of January ...' and since the headings on baptism pages
                  normally depict the year of baptism (unless otherwise stated), this suggests that
                   a case could be made that Helen's birth might have been in November of 1841
                    and her baptism in January of 1842 (e.g. in my view, the GROS Index could be
                     incorrectly showing Helen's baptism as '23 Jan 1843').

             notates that the baptism was on 'Twentieth December 1849', the same
              day that three other Wards children were also baptized.

        {
NOTE: The OPR birth/baptism register entry was registered on a page with the year, 1843,
            written at the top ('A.D. Eighteen hundred and forty three') -- the heading on a baptism
             page indicates the year of baptism, unless an individual entry on the page states
              differently within its text.  That is not the case with William's entry on this page, so it
               is my view that a year of 1843 for his baptism can also be inferred.  His entry states
                that William '...was born on the twenty first day of December, and baptized on the
                 fourth day of February ...' and since the headings on baptism pages normally depict
                  the year of baptism (unless otherwise stated), this suggests that a case could be
                   made that William's birth might have been in December of 1842 and his baptism
                    in February of 1843 (e.g. in my view, the International Genealogical Index and
                     the GROS Index could be incorrectly showing William's baptism as '4 Feb 1844').
