The Richards in the parish of Ilkeston

Ilkeston St. Mary's Parish Church Register.
Matlock R.O. Ref. D3082. API. 1/1.
Trawling the Parish Registers from 1695.
14.07.1700  John son of John Richards and Ann his wife bapt.
11.06.1701  Sarah dau. of Henry Richards and Rachel his wife bapt.
28.12.1702  Samuel son of William Richards and Sarah his wife buried pauper.

24.01.1707  Edward the son of Henery Richards and Rachel bapt.
Note: On the 24 January 1707 there was burial and a baptism as above.
So Henry (Henery) Richards had a baptism and a funeral on the same day.  I wonder if his wife
Rachel Richards died in childbirth.  The burial entry occurs immediately before the baptism entry.
Note: see below 06.02.1707.   The burial of this baby Edward Richards, who would be 2 weeks old.
31.01.1707  Samuel son of William Richards and Catharine his wife bapt.  Pauper.
Note: This entry started "bur" but was altered to indicate "bap".
Also at the end of the entry the word "pauper" is written which is odd because almost without exception the word pauper only occurs at the end of a burial where the deceased was a pauper.  This word does not appear against any baptism
