      D RUST, ELEANOR 10 November 1722.
      [As Benjamin Rust and his first wife Eleanor Green (19 February 1702 - 10 November 1722) are known to have had an only child named Samuel Rust who d.s.p.s, it seems very certain from DB#7, p.492, DB#11, Page 155 and MRCm p, of 254 that the recording on p159 of the birth of Samuel Routs son of Benjamin and Eleanor Routs 20 February 1721 is an error and that this is actually the record of the birth of Samuel Rust who is mentioned in the above cited documents.]
