The source said the newspaper was published on 16 Mar 1820, which was a Thursday. The birth was reported as happening on Friday, the 24th inst., meaning that same month. 24 Mar 1820 was a Friday -- but if that were the date of birth, it would have been after the date given for publication. 24 Feb 1820 was a Thursday. Maybe the child was born in February rather than March, or maybe the date the birth was published in the Enniskillen Chronicle was not 16 Mar 1820.
