It is 'nice' to see one of ancestry's classic transcription error for a George Taylor who is transcribed on a Royal Navy record as being born in "Seven Cake, Kent", it is of course as it says in the document "Sevenoaks, Kent".

Apparently (according to ancestry) there are places called "Cake Town", "Cake Colony" and "Cake of Good Hope" all in South Africa and Hoylake in Cheshire has several variations of "Cake". :lol:
