I have found these two entries
Jane Hindle
Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire, England
Baptisms: 17 Jun 1710 St James, Church Kirk, Lancashire, England Jane Hindle - D of William Hindle Abode: Oswaldtwisle Notes: Minister wrote Duke at end of entry. Register: Baptisms 1633 - 1747, Page 128, Entry 27 Source: LDS Film 1470822

William Hindle
Burial: 20 Mar 1726/27 St James, Church Kirk, Lancashire, England William Hindle - Abode: Oswaldtwisle Notes: Duke of Oswaldtwistle Register: Burials 1633 - 1747, Page 111, Entry 20 Source: LDS Film 1470822

both mention he is a Duke but I can find no such person.
Any help or suggestions gratefully received
thank you
