Thanks. Looks like two Robert Hughes got merged, hence the early first service date.

Edits for Robert Hughes: Robert is my wife's 6th great uncle. He was born 1716 (baptized 7 Oct 1716 at Deptford, Kent). First known service date is incorrect. His wife was Sarah Collingwood, sister of Comodore Thomas Collingwood (d. 1780). He was buried 18 Jan 1774 at Bath Abbey, Somerset. The rest looks good.
