Two sets of parents for one child ?

Hello, I was trying to find the Baptism record for Betty Caunce and found the entry in the 1802 records for the county of Rufford in Lancashire.
Under the month of October I found two entries for the same child on the same day (17th) next to one another with two sets of parents namely: Richard & Bridget Caunce and William & Nanny Caunce.
I can't figure out under what circumstances this would happen. Any suggestions would be very welcome.
Thank you.
