1Birth Details, GRO Birth Index. Name: ALSTON, JOHN    
Mother's Maiden Surname: ROSTRON  
GRO Reference: 1842  M Quarter in BLACKBURN  Volume 21  Page 20.

2Baptism Details. Given the variations we see with this family's surname, this is most probably John's baptism. The christian names, timing (consistent with a Q1-1842 Registration), location and father's occupation all fit. The LDS transcribed the surname as 'Miles' and got the baptism date wrong. Looking at the original Parish Records, the baptism date is the 8th Dec 1841 and  surname, although unclear, is certainly not 'Miles' ( the first letter is definitely not an 'M'). The first letter looks more like an incomplete 'A' the remainder is undecipherable.
