Although formal registration of births began in the latter part of 1837, penalties were not introduced until 1874 for failure to do so. Many people continued to have their children baptised believing that was sufficient to name the child. I have found four children all registered together in the 1890s so it is not always the case that registration will occur within the six week period.
