Ancestor info turning up unexpectedly.

I have had a few occasions where I am trawling through a parish register and find the baptism, marriage or burial of an ancestor I had been looking for previously, not at the time I was looking for him when I was looking for another ancestor.

I was trawling through some Burnham On Crouch records for a Mary Webb baptism and I stumbled across the baptism of Jeremiah Hurrell in 1772, my ancestor who wed in nearby Canewdon in 1800.
