Re: Question about Notes on Baptismal Record
You got it essentially correct.
It says: This offspring was legitimated by a subsequent marriage of the parents on 3 Nov 1862. The legimation and correction of record was done by order of the Bishop's vicar given as no 391 on 21 Feb 1893.
Correction [of record] done by parish priest.
Note the lapse of time between the marriage and the legitimation. This was probably done for civil purposes of inheritance, etc., not for religious reasons.
