Sanborn and Sanborn's "Vital Records of Hampton", 1:96, record the date as "ye: 23: 8 m 64" while on another page, 1:552, another record (that doesn't name the child but is likely for Elizabeth) states it as "ye 23d sixth Mo: 1664". The first entry is from the original town records and the second from the Old Norfolk County Records. Checking the microfilm of the original town records (2:414) the numeral for the month could be either an 8 or a 6. The Sanborns chose to read it as an 8, but given the Norfolk County record that gives it as a 6, it seems more likely that the month was the sixth and not the eighth, meaning August rather than October. In the original record the right side of the number has a loop like many of the other sixes on the page (and unlike the other eights), but the left side of the number has an extension going up above the number as though it were going to be the left top of the 8, but the top of the 8 is missing.
