I am having difficulty understanding something written on a birth record and hope someone can help me. What does "bap. before y "Conq."" mean as written in the following record?
Birth Record of Janet Gavin 1795
Mains and Strathmartine, Angus
John Gavin & Eliz. Barrie had a child
bap. before y “Conq.” Janet
1795 March 15th
I assume it means Janet was baptized before something, but I don't know what. Any help would be appreciated.
