Bap V184556 31A/1845 ANDREWS WILLIAM E - WILLIAM - JANE

Page 137
Baptisms solemnized in the Parish of St. Philip Sydney in the County of Cumberland in the Year 1846
No. 2049 When Baptised: 4 January 1846 When Born: 13th Octr. 1845 William Edward Son of William & Jane Andrews Abode: Pitt Street Quality or Profession: Labourer By whom the Ceremony was performed: William Cowper

It's either the wrong baptism or Edward is an error ?? because after that it's William Thomas. ??

That one follows convention with year of birth as the year in the index.
