I've come across several ancestors who  died late 18th/ early 19th Century. The majority of burial records in the Parish Registers of that period give no ages, apart from some being recorded as "Infant". Does anyone know what approximate age may have been used at that time to define "infant"? This information may help me sort out individuals of the same name!
