Janet Gavin - birth record problem

Posted: 1 Mar 2014 8:14PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Gavin
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.

Thanks.
