Mr William Bennett. aged 412 years, deeply regretted.
 
The mind boggles, but there again, there was no real 'proof-reading' skill in those days. If anyone reported the error, did they, in those days, print an apology for the error, with the correct age.......I doubt it? So was he 42 or 41, I'll discount 12.
Thanks, Gibbo, it made me laugh.
