Re: Birth records for 1795-1796?

There is a burial in Braddan of Sarah Farrill child of Patrick a month prior to marriage with Elizth Lewthwaite - Patrick is noted as a refugee from France - possibly he was a widower and already had young children (hence an 'urgent' need to find a wife to look after young children) and Lydia was by a possible earlier wife - if she was brought up on Island she may have thought she was born there ?

There is a gap in children's baptismal records for a Lydia c.1794-5 tho the baptismal dates of Samuel (bur Braddan 1798) + Joseph look somewhat strange
