I usually figure about 70 for death by old age, 30 for the average age of male parent at birth, 25 for female parent (mean intergenerational time). First marriage about 20-25 male, 15-20 female, apprenticeship 14-ish, minimum age for witness in common law 14, age of majority 21. A lot of it comes down to what kind of records you have. Age of majority is one of the best, I've found, since it significantly impacts legal records.
The point of it on here is so that there will be some date reference when it shows up in searches. It would probably be better if the date fields allowed a range option, but I guess this works.
