I found this baptism on the Lancashire OPC website:

Baptism: 4 Feb 1821 St Peter, Liverpool, Lancashire, England
Francis Dillicate James Hewlet - [Child] of James Jones Hewlet & Catherine
Abode: Knight St.
Occupation: White Smith
Baptised by: T. H. Heathcote Curate
Register: Baptisms 1820 - 1821, Page 215, Entry 1716
Source: LDS Film 1656418.

I cannot locate this family on any census. I am specifically interested in the Dillicate name, and was wondering why this child was christened with this. I have some Dillicate's in my family tree, but I am not aware of this one.
